I'm just curious, what was everyone's first job and what was their age when they started

I'm currently 17, I work at a grocery store making pizzas, I've worked here for over a year and I enjoy it, I'm currently going into grade 12 and I'm following an auto mechanics path because I love cars and fixing them is a passion to me

Im a lifeguard at a country club, and I've been doing it since I was 16, so 2 years now.

My friend was doing it and told me it was an easy job and you get a lot of hours so I've been doing it for 2 years and actually really like it.

Honestly that seems like a pretty cool job, must be pretty relaxed at most times

My first official job, after having worked in my mother's business from ages 12-14, was at K-Mart as a cashier and I was 16 when I started and 18 when they fired me lol.

Its actually super nice, get free lunch from the club, mainly just old people who don't even need to be watched and we only have 3 guards and I've been friends with all of them since I was a kid, and we make our own schedules. It's really nice honestly.

My favourite part was " you get to make your own schedules " damn I would love that

Motto: 10th TOP POSTER ON THETECHGAME
I was 16 when I first got my first job as a brickie doing roofing, brick laying, doing drive ways, etc. Was alright at the time but was only getting £30 per day lol, but at the time it was a lot of money so carried on doing it for a few years, my money did go up to £50 a day, then went into retail which sucked, so then got into security, and have been doing security for the last 7 years. I'm am now a security supervisor at film studios getting £600+ per week to as much as £800 per week. To look back when I was getting just £30 a day, I think I have come along way, hopefully, one day is my long set life time goal to start my own security company.
