As I have my own, I would like to ask, what was your first job? I'm currently working on a Christmas Tree Farm (so likely temporary).

>implying employment

Walmart - I worked in the back putting toys and bikes and stuff together so that people could come in and buy it ready-made instead of buying a box of parts. probably gonna do that this december as well. or maybe I won't get a job until 2017. I'm not really being pressured for a job right now.

inb4 tan/end mentions surveys and nobody laughs cause nobody gets it anymore

I dunno, I'd still count fatally pushing your cousin off a cliff as honest work.

My first job was at a fast food restaurant... But I quit after I found out they had a cockroach infestation. Damned cockroaches!

I was talking about the one I gave to you bc you promised me 500 bucks. Never saw any of that money by the way.

If you're not getting paid, you're not a whore, you're a slut. Learn the difference.

It was a one-time thing I swear!

I carried 50-lb bags of gravel and wheelbarrows full of bricks down a hill for a few weekends one summer. Then we poured them all out in order to make a sort of garden patio spot. The guy we were working for implied we would be paid minimum wage once or twice, before handing us both $80 when we were done.

Various paper routes.

Highlight was when some guy's teenage son answered the door high, paid me 5 dollars instead of the usually 20, and when I tried to explain he only gave me a 5, he thought I was trying to give him back 5 dollars in change and refused to take it back.

Needless to say they never got the paper again.

Graphic artist position in 2006. Site got closed down, but someone liked my art and invited me to another site. Got paid 200 min. a month depending on how much I had to do.

It was pretty fun.

I wanted to but they wouldn't take me.

EDIT: Fuck, i replied to my own post.

They probably just thought you wanted an employee discount.

First Jobs

Yeah, you're probably right. And I started looking for jobs a year ago, so maybe they just didn't want to work with a 14 year old?

First Jobs

I don't think many places hire people under 16. I worked when I was 15 but nobody would hire me when I was any younger... Not even McDonalds.

I got my job at the gym when i was 14. Guess i was just lucky.

I'm actually looking for one right now. I've applied like, everywhere. No luck so far, though.

I can sympathize.

First Jobs

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I have no experience, sure, but I'm very dedicated. I constantly keep up with the places I've applied at, I call them, email them. etc. Still no luck.

20, it's just that I prefer the kinda of physical work that's typically found on farms.
