 Since I started working at 16 I've worked for 20 companies.  Now as far as how many "different" jobs I've had, that would be about 14.  May sound bad but I worked alot of pt jobs while also working a ft job.  Some of my ft jobs I held a few different positions at.  I get burnt out at a job after a bit so I switch up & generally move onto something different when I switch jobs.  The longest I've stayed at one job/position was 3 1/2 years.  I think I will be staying at my curret job for longer though!

Here are a few of my jobs/positions, in no particular order.

K-mart; on the floor in home furnishings, fashion & jewelry

Server at 3 different restuarants

Usher/security at an amphitheater




Data entry clerk for manufacturing co.

CSR for 2 different vet offices

Shipping clerk for a print shop

Area rep for exchange student program


gas station clerk

Of course those are only my tax paying jobs, I've also done baby sitting, pet sitting & house sitting.
