How old were you when you got you first real paying job?

I was 16 and I worked every day till I had my DD then became a SAHM for 4 yrs and now working again.

My brother who is 26 just got her first job this month, I was shocked. But he lives with his mom and she pays for everything

  • I never worked when I was in highschool. main reason was we lived in the country and we didn't have enough autos for all of us. I got my first job when I was 19 and I stayed at that job for almost 6 yrs. I became a lead operator and many other things. What's funny about that is it was factory work and I always told myself that I wasn't going to do factory work. lol funny how things worked out. I wore many hats out there though. I learned how to drive a fork lift, do QA, shipping/receiving, shift supervisor. Wasn't too bad for a first time job if I say so myself. I don't like to bounce around with jobs... It shows you as being unstable and companies don't like to hire people like that.
