  • I got a job as a grocery store cashier when I was 15 yrs old. I worked there for 4 years.
    I quit to get married and move out of town to attend college.
    My first check was for about $210.00 for 30 hours. (I made aprox 7.00/hour) Not bad for it being 1979

  • I got my first job when I was 14. I stocked bread at the local grocery store. I only had to do it twice a week and I think it only took me half an hour each time. My first check was for a month's worth of work and I think it was about $30.00

  • My 1st job was babysitting after school when I was 15. I quit a few months later because we moved and I lived in another city and couldn't walk to the house after school any more. I haven't worked since then and I am now 42.
