Those were fun times.

Ahhh, my first job…  I was 14 and wanted a really expensive pair of jeans from the mall.  My mom told me “HELL NO! Get a job if you want those pants!” so I went to my high school guidance counselor and asked for a work permit.  I got a job working in the office of a construction and restoration company owned by a friend of the family.

She taught me how to file, do data entry, payroll, she even let me drive to the bank to make deposits when I got my learner’s permit. 

I made a measly $3.75 (minimum wage at the time) and I worked my butt off until I saved enough money to buy those jeans.

 

edit- I re-read my post and it looks like I worked there long enough to buy jeans… that is not the case!  I worked there until my parents moved to a different county!

I was 15, I worked at Chick-Fil-A. I.LOVED.IT. I got to eat free Chick-Fil-A on my lunch breaks, I made 7.50 (minium wage was 7.00 or 7.25 so I thought I was hot stuff haha  I had to quit because they went from working me 4 days a week, to 4 hours a week and it wasn’t worth my gas. I still love Chick-Fil-a

I was a day camp counselor. I worked with the 6 year old group and LOVED it. I did it for several summers thereafter, too. I just adore kids that age!!  They’re old enough to have personality, but not old enough to cop an attitude yet! (Usually…)

I have to admit – I thought it was pronounced Chick Fill Uh for the longest time.  It made no sense to me.

Imagine my embarrassment when I was informed it was Chick Fillet.

My first job was a waitress. I love it…at first. I was 16, I loved the idea of making my own money, and back before the economy took a turn I actually made really good money. I worked at this little Country/homecooking resturant. I was there for about 3 & 1/2 years before I got tired of putting up with cranky old people all day.

My first job was when I was 14 working at a very popular mini golf course in a tourist area.  I loved working there!  It was all high school kids pretty much except a manager that was there only after 8 pm. (I worked the 4-close shift).  On slow days we would get in water fights, juggle golf balls, and go play holes on the courses that were close to the cashier’s station.  I only made like $5.50 or whatever minimum wage was then, but it was so much fun.
