as this is around the time kids would be leaving school and might be looking for their first job in life , thought i would start this to give them an idea of what is out there for them , so what was your first job in life?

mine was work experience at a Garden Centre about 6 years ago now.

Worked the cash register at a grocery store. I quickly learned to hate people. People suck.

Really? I've enjoyed being a cashier. You know, outside of the horrible pay and all that.

The job itself was okay for what it was, but so many customers were inconsiderate assholes.

I waited tables part-time for about 2 years while still in school, then I started full time as a computer technician and salesman. After that I got a desk job at a large IT service provider and my disdain for corporate capitalism began.

Now every time I think about working for a big company I feel like this.

You know those hamster water bottles where they lick at the little metal spigot with the ball in the end of it? Yeah.

My first job was valet at a fancy lake club. Weirdly enough I just had a dream that involved it where I drove Tom Kenny's car into the lake (by accident of course), but in my defense those brakes were godawful

I think if most people "got it" then there would be no need to get a job and everyone would take care of each other because they are nice.

Perhaps it is a mixture of the area's culture and the store you are being a cashier for. A lot of my friends in high school that had cashier jobs at grocery stores and hated it. I'm fairly busy at my work, but it's at a bookstore in a really big/busy mall and people are really friendly. Dunno.

Beats being a cop with dudes grabbing your ass all the time and such.

Haha yea kinda like that xD

I dno, not trying to put anyone off of getting a job but for god's sake make it something you enjoy. If you don't love your first job that's ok. Save what you earn and make it a goal to make money doing what you enjoy eventually because otherwise you are just a hamster running round and round a wheel that someone else put there.

Started Mcds when I was 16 and still at school. Worked there for 6 years finishing as a manager and now work in the merchant navy. Mcds takes a lot of abuse, and they are a horrible employer to work for, but if you have half a brain its easy to get to management and that looks great on a C.V.

My first job was working for a landscaper when I was 14 during the summer. I made $8/hr and loved it but looking back it was awful pay for what I had to do. I ended up doing it all through my high school summers and full time for a year afterwards. I've had 4 or 5 jobs since then and apart from one they've all been much worse.

Punctuation corrector.

'everyones' isn't a word. It's 'everyone's'.

I'm not going to correct your post, it's despicable. Where did you learn English? In America? Oh no, you couldn't have, you can spell 'centre' correctly.

Besides working on farms I guess my real first job was as a cashier. I quite liked it actually, although the pay was shit. After college (biotech) I plan on selling my soul to big pharma.

Courtesy clerk at Safeway.
I am now currently on night crew at Safeway, spanning various departments, tho I mostly stick to frozen, dairy, and this thing called UNFI.

I basically know how to run the entire night crew but am almost at the very bottom of the totem poll so it's not like I'm actually of a value, even tho I do a damn good job, my work ethic for shitty retail jobs is literally my only good quality.
My name is Sestra!
She/her pronouns please!
And if you call me by my username I'll bite your dick off.

Since I'm guessing a paper round doesn't count, I worked at a commercial laundry the summer between finishing school and starting university.
Since I was 17, and it was 15 years ago, I started on a princely £3/hr.

My first job was a few years ago as a Rail Engineer fixing and/or replacing tracks and building new lines. It was working with the tracks only, I didn't get to do anything with the actual trains.

Kind of an old timely 'first' job these days now that I think about it.

Good pay, good hours.
Didn't like the actual job though. I'm not a fan of 'manual labor' anyway since I'm prone to back pain and I hate working in the rain/snow/cold/warm/windy...I basically don't like being outside.
When I was eleven I broke the patio window and my mother sued me... She's always been a very aggressive litigator.

The army. 1964. I enlisted mainly over not knowing what to do when I graduated from high school. Turned out to be a good decision... I was in Germany, cooling my heels as a medic, when Vietnam started to heat up seriously.
I was out in 1967, when things started to get really bad.... Had I not enlisted it's very likely I would have been drafted.

My first job was a sandwich artist at Subway. I still work there on and off during the summers when I am not in University and need a bit more money. I am currently working in the research department at a mental health facility.
