What was your first job? How old were you when you start it?



My first job was a cashier at a grocery store. I was 16.

I was a shampoo girl at a friend of the family's salon. I was 14 and made $20 for working from 8-1 on a Saturday.

I worked in the local cafe as a waitress/cook. I was 16 or 17 when I started there.

Not counting babysitting which I started at age 11, my first job was at Wendy's.

I was 17.

I only got the job to pay off my first speeding ticket (oops!) & it was the only way I was allowed to drive my car - to work & back - as my parents took away my keys when I got the ticket.

My first real job was camp counselor and lifeguard at a Summer Camp. I was 16 when I started.

I did occasionally babysit starting when I was 12.

I had to work for my dad on the family farm. I don't remember exactly how old I was, probably around 12. I had to hoe peanuts, move irrigation pipe, unload feed bags, and work cattle.

Worked at Bob Evans from 17-18 (7 months). Did work there a bit at 16 but had to quit as I didn't have a work permit. If you want to get technical my first job was babysitting my cousins the summers of 14-15 but I don't consider that a real job.
