Worked in a bowling alley oiling the lanes before the league started, and kept the tables clean during and between leagues. At least I bowled for free.....

I worked at a video store all through high school (and part of Jr. High), and continued to work there until late summer after I graduated. Then I went to work at Target - I did everything there from cashier to service desk to electronics to chargebacks to clerical. My favorite was probably chargebacks...I could wear whatever I wanted to work and I got first dibs on everything that needed to be marked down for any reason.

I found the industry that I currently work in. I started working as a dishwasher/pizza cook/delivery guy. I fell in love with the restaurant business, I love the busy times. You may not have a moment to think, breath or even get a drink of water. But when the day is done it gives a unexplainable satisfaction to me. Every scar I have from the years of working in the restaurant industry is a badge of honor to me. Whether I got it by burning myself or slipped up with a knife, the pain gave me a rush of adrenaline and demented satisfaction. I can't imagine working a 9 to 5 job, sitting behind a desk, pushing a pencil. I have worked every job in the restaurant industry, from busser to Manager. I have worked in every kind of possible restaurant, from mom and pop to corporate America. I have done every kind of food from slop diner to fine dining. I love what I do and will probably do it till I die.

Through high school I worked in a library.  I was a gopher for the researchers.  Pretty cool job.  After High School I worked as a desk clerk in a motel.  Talk about  an education.  We did a great Friday, Saturday and Sunday night business.  I could rent the same room two or three times a night.  Made friends with a Pro.  She told me a lot of stuff.  (key word there is told).  Only time I had a gun pointed at me.

after I graduated High School, I took a year off then went into the Parks & Recreation Dept. maintenance division.

I worked at a company called ISI...Institute for Scientific Information, located in Philadelphia. They distributed scientific journals. They were switching all of their subscriber info over to computers, and I did the manual look-ups from old ledgers to verify that the info was input correctly.

I was a counsilor and activities director at a children's camp. We had a great time during the week, and partied on the weekends when the kids were gone.

Sears Men's Wear.  Sold shirts, ties, socks, underwear, pants, suits - then I went to work in the advertising department, puting together the newspaper ads for the coming week's sales.  When I went to university, I moved over to Eaton's, but I worked in retail days and bartended nights until I was in my mid 20's.

Right out of Highschool, I worked 2 jobs, During the day, I was a loan service counsler at Home Federal Savings and Loans, in San Diego.  By night, I worked at a Baskin Robbins with kids my age.  The bank paid the rent, but the ice cream parlor paid for the partying, eventually, Baskin Robbins became my ONLY employment, but it carried me through the decision making.  Once I made my decision, or really, followed the path chosen by God, I began to work with domestic animals, and spent 30 years in the Veterinary/Pet Gooming field.  Once there, I never felt that I was at work.

My first job that I ever had was @ the age of 16, with a local ladies clothing store. I had the job until I moved to Florida when I was 20.

it was one of the best jobs I ever had. I worked in the warehouse were we unloaded the clothes, priced them, and then delivered them to the stores.

I worked after school, until 6pm, and no weekends...

Worked at a pizza joint as a delivery driver.  Loved it...the money was great(for a college kid) and there was a ton of freedom being on the road with nobody looking over your shoulder. 

Funny story....a coworker and I were caught 'blazing' by the owner on a Friday night at about 5-6 o'clock.  He wasn't mad at us for for the act, just that we were doing it during the Friday night rush.  Needless to say, he's a pretty cool guy.

I delivered Pharmacueticals to retirement homes and individuals homes who were unable to make it the pharmacy I worked at to get their meds. I made min. wage but decent tips that summer, helping me to pay for a lot of my first year of college.
