What was your first job?  How long did you work at it?

My first official, non babysitting, job was as a sandwich maker, cashier, salad bar cleaner at Wendy's.  I was there for 7 months before I quit for a better paying job.

have a nice weekend

More than a few. Since i was only 14 i blended in really well. I would stand at the record bins for hours flipping through the selections. If i saw someone i would approach an employee with a question. The employee would then take care of our without ever revealing me. I was very good at it and it was a great way to earn money

 No. But more hours. The first one was just for weekends. At McDonald's I could walk there after school and also go on the weekends.

Yeah, I grew up doing that and because I knew the owners I would pick up extra cash when they came to town. That all ended about 20+ years ago ... But good memories.

I worked at a video store when I was 14. I loved it, besides seeing all the XXX covers come through, and having to reshelve them.
