GTKY: what was your first job

I worked at Starbucks as a Barista from senior year in high school & all through college.  I suck because now i'm one of those ppl that order a "customized drink" when I go in but hey, I just know what I like.

What was your first job?

Re: GTKY: what was your first job

  • My dad was a manager at a retail furniture store so when I was 15 I was allowed to get paid to come in and help with filing paperwork (ah, precomputer days).   It was so I could save up to buy a car.

    Turned into a good gig, even after my dad quit a year later to open his own business they kept me on as a employee.  I moved to cashier to a credit writer.   I was think punka$$ 16 year old kid telling people their credit sucked so much I couldn't sell them a couch.  lol.     I worked there all through high school and returned for college summers.

  • Hmmm. Difficult to say. i babysat starting when i was 12. i also delievered newspapers. then at 14 i worked at a banquet place setting tables for a little while. when i was 16 i got a job at fanny farmer candies in the mall. i worked there for 6 years. i guess i consider that my real first job. iam a chocolate snob.

    TTC since May 2006. After 3 failed Clomid cycles, 2 failed Injectibles/IUIs, 2 failed IVFs and 1 failed FET, we moved on to adoption!

    Last ditch FET resulted in BFP, and identical twin girls!

  • My first real job was as a waitress at a local restaurant. I started when I was a junior in high school and worked there for a few years on and off. It was a great experience as most of the other wait staff was around my age and I made way more money per hour than any of my friends who worked retail.

  • i worked in a baby boutique selling nursery furniture and designing custom bedding! Loved that job and did it for almost 10 years, but just didnt pay the bills. The funny part is I bought my baby crib at walmart and ordered generic baby bedding! Guess i got burnt out on the high dollar custom crap ( you dont really need, lol) -

    always thought it would be fun to be a bartender. but just for a couple of days, then imagine it would get pretty old

  • One summer I did the paperwork and billing for my dad (he runs his own farming business and needed someone to help him with the office stuff), but my first real job was bagging groceries at Vons. I got moved to the deli after a month (it was kind of a promotion, but without a pay increase), but left at the end of the summer to go back to college full time.

    Not a job I'd want to work again, but I definitely learned to always treat people behind the counter or register nicely because of it (not that I was mean to workers before, but now I try to be extra nice).

  • My mom owned a daycare so I pretty much helped there my whole life. Pouring Kool-Aid, cleaning, playing with kids, helping with naps, etc. Once I was tired of not being on an actual pay roll, I started working at a chain deli. I transferred to a deli in the town I went to college in and worked there too. After I left I couldn't eat there for quite a while! I'm just starting to get a taste for it again!

    I love an easy ice venti soy Chai or a gummi bear juice which is a passion tea with a pump of valencia, a pump of raspberry, & a pump of vanilla. Or a grande 2 pump decaf white mocha. To my defense I only "special order" at the location I used to work at because they know what I like.

    I did telephone surveys one summer in high school. You would be amazed at how many creepy old guys hit on me. Sad that they were apparently so lonely that a phone survey person seemed like appealing company. At least they all had the decency to apologize when I told them I was only 16...

  • Depends.  First job ever was cleaning out dog kennels.  Not as bad as it sounds as long as you wore old clothes all the time.  First job in high school was cashier at the local grocery store, bad pay, terrible hours.  First job after college was working as a mental health tech.
