My first job other than babysitting was working at my hometown Dairy Queen with all of my friends. It was a super small town and we all worked there. The best part was that we ate all day... I think I started working there when I was 14 and worked there until I was 16 or so. I wouldn't want to work there again, though.

My favorite job so far has been one where I didn't get paid, and that's shadowing in the surgery/anesthesiology department and watching surgeries at my hometown hospital, although getting up at 4 AM sucked...and of course being a mom.

My first job started at the end of my junior year in high school. It was a clerical position in the advertising department of a large automotive-related company. For me, it was two types of culture shock at first. One, the dress code. No jeans, no casual polo shirts, no tennis shoes, etc. I had to spend my first couple of paychecks buying "work clothes", because I didn't own any! Secondly, I remember my first day, staring at the clock at around 3:30, thinking "all my friends are home from school now and having fun...and I've got another hour and a half before I can go home." It just felt so depressing. And "corporate life" felt stifling.

But after a few weeks, I got into the swing of things, I got to know my co-workers, our boss would take the department out to lunch sometimes, things like that. They started giving me more "artistic" stuff to do after my clerical work was done, so I learned about keylines and mock-ups and other "advertising" things. Plus, I had unlimited use of the copier and fax machine, which helped when school started up the next Fall. Also free long distance calls, if no one was looking, LOL.

my forst job was reshelving books at the library, and because i was a minor they were allowed to pay LESS than min wage. i made 4.19$/hr. it sucked, i hated it.
best job, working on a movie, making $$$$$$$$. but that is not a long job. only a few days and doesn't happen very often...like once every few YEARS. but sooo much FUN!

First job: Baskin Robbins Ice Cream
They were so cheap, employees were only allowed to get one small scoop of ice cream for free and only when you were finished with your shift.

Favorite job: SAHM
Quite stressful and tiring, but very rewarding.

I was 15 and a sophmore when I had my first job. I worked at a dentist office and it was damn boring but I saved up enough to get my first car.

My FAVORITE job was working at Dunkin Donuts!! I love coffee and the people I worked with was awesome! I also dated someone from there, that was awesome at the time until we broke up.. LOL! :D

My very first job was at the reniassance faire. it was a lot of fun. it only lasted 8 weeks, so I guess my first REAL job was telemarketing for auto trader magazine. It was an awesome job for a 16 year old because the hours were from 5 to 9 every eveing, and no work on fridays or satrudays. Also, at the time, the pay was more than $2 over miimum wage + commission so i felt really rich at the time.

my first job, becides baby sitting: 10th grade at A&W, it sucked the boss was a perv.
My favorite job: working at a small fine dining restaurant, I was a busser everyone was cool, had a few food fights back in the dish room. i think the people you work with make the job, not the job itself.
The chef/owner is my daughters daddy, no one knew about it till after the fact. He only took it over right after we started seeing eachother....we didnt tell anyone, we kept work and pur personal lives seperate.

I worked at Papa Murphy's when I was 17.. for ONE DAY!! It was THAT bad!!

My favorite job? I worked as a delivery driver for a pharmacy in the "nice" area of this not so great town up North.. it rocked! I worked from 5pm-anywhere around 10pm to midnight delivering pharmacy supplies/meds/etc to adult family homes, hospitals, rehab centers, etc... I got a job from a friend and then got all my friend's jobs there.. at one point i had 6 of my close friends working with me.. I quit after I had Xander because even though it was fun, it was dangerous --and once i had xander they weren't going to be sending me out with a partner at night to do my route.. and some of the areas I would go to where an hour+ away and not the best neighborhoods to be in (we would regularly have to deliver drugs like oxycotin in big doses)

My first job was at a candy store called Mr Bulkys I worked there for 7 years, after 2 months of working there I became a supervisor. Oh by the way I lied about my age I was 13 and said I was 18 so I could get a job but they knew the whole time that was the best job ever!!! I got to take home bags of candy everyday and give out free candy as gifts LOL

My first job was at McDonalds when I was 16. I hated it but I loved my fellow coworkers. I now work as a CNA at a nursing home in the Alzheimers Unit. My job is shitty, but I get paid ALOT, and thank goodness I only work on the weekends!!

My first job was as an artist's assistant at a gallery. Basically I got to help this old lady put her art on the internet.
I adore my current job. I work at a bookstore co-op that is run, owned, etc by students (http://www.slugbooks.com). I am a co-owner and textbook manager. It's great. My coworkers are all my age so we can party together and being a co-owner I get to set my own hours and have no boss. I highly suggest working at co-ops.

first job- working in a laser tag arena. was pretty cool for a while, got promoted to assistant manager then gor fired because of some dumb faulty lock on the front door that the head manager knew about but didn't bother to fix. someone tried getting in and set off the alarm so i got fired for that...fuckers.

favorite job- working at a craft store. i worked at two differnt locations of the same local craft store chain, once as a cashier and once as a frame shop employee. was totally cool even though the pay sucked ass.
