How old were you when you got your first job and what kind of job was it?

I just got my first job at my moms cafe as a busser ^^ (i.e. I take drink orders, clean up tables, set up tables.) and I am 15 currently. (I will be 16 in about a week.)

Paper round at fifteen. I quit after a year, though, because I was tired of lugging bags of paper around for next to nothing. :D

Clerk at 14. Where I live is lenient on work, since they want teenagers to work anyway.

Now, 2 years later, I'm the manager.

Stacking shelves at 15. I've come a long way. hah!

But it's not that bad, that kind of no responsibility zombie work is pretty nice sometimes.

I was 14 and I worked as a clerk in a tax commission office. After that, I realized that I didn't like office jobs or being behind a desk all day.




Pokestick, good times.

I worked in a school cafeteria a little at the age of 12.

Fun, but it didn't last long XD

I don't even think I've had a job since O_o

14, Window Tinting. Yup. That's is all.

I've never had a job. I'm old enough to and all, but I just really don't want to get a job. I have a feeling I'm going to have to get one pretty soon though.

I got my first job back in October. I work as a store clerk and cashier at CVS pharmacy. Oh, I'm seventeen.

Terrible job. I'm only there once a week for four hours.

My first job was a paper round when i was 11 or 12. Had to do about 700 papers in two days for minimum wage. i asked for less papers and they gave me another 100 but with more money. I quit a few months later

I was 10. And I was helping out at the bowling alley with my Uncle Michael. I put the shoes away :D

I started work at a florist at the age of 15 for my work experience. It was fun, my boss let me make a flower arrangement for a family friend's wedding anniversary.

February 22nd, 2010, 1:57 PM
Excluding work experience aged 15, I started my first proper job last Tuesday. Retail assistant on Sundays, seven hours at £4.11 per hour.

February 22nd, 2010, 5:45 PM
I actually never worked... hehe.

Unless you count the time where mom took me to Dunkin Donuts when she worked there, and I got to give the donuts to people! : D I dropped one by accident... maybe more then one. xD

I was like 6 at that age... no pay. D :

I've had no actual job as of yet, but I have been called upon to help others with things for some pay, so I guess I run my own business. *shot*

But, that aside, I'll probably get a job in the next couple of years (still waiting for my license) once I can drive myself.

I assume I can post if I haven't had a job before, right? XD

My first job was as a Taekwondo instructor for little kids when I was 16. I now tutor people in English and French at the local University.

Although it's thanks to my mom, it still counts XD

I worked at an orthodontics office every once in awhile when they back up and have no time to sterilize instruments, so I give 'em a hand at that and just about anything else they need. Terrible job for me though =3=" ~hates seeing people I know~

I worked in our school's A/V room in 7th grade.

As for a job with a salary, that was age 19 as an assistant to the administrative assistant in my college's math department.

Mopping the decks of the salty sea bucket at the age of 13 ( paper round actully)

February 23rd, 2010, 1:46 PM
Eighteen, at a little place called Woolworths. Six weeks after I started, the company went into administration and I was made redundant. XD

February 23rd, 2010, 2:58 PM
idk if this a job but my friends say it is:

Programming at 9 I needed to take responsibility of keeping eveyone thing up and running :P

February 23rd, 2010, 3:33 PM
Don't really have an official job, but I do take care of people's pets when they go on vacation. I started doing that when I was 15.

February 23rd, 2010, 4:53 PM
I shared a paper route with my brother when I was... 14? 15? I forget. I don't count that as my first job. First paying job I ever had was hostess/telephone operator at a local Chinese restaurant at age 18.

February 23rd, 2010, 8:56 PM
I guess this counts dog walker age 13 right now Im a lazy bum trying to find time for community hours

I was a paper boy at 13, I think I only lasted about 1/2 a year. Don't really consider this much of a job though.

The summer after that (at 14) I worked in a law firm shredding paper. Pretty boring, but a great job considering my age.

February 24th, 2010, 12:29 PM
I've never really had an actual job yet. *hides* I am looking for one now though because I have a car and I have to be able to buy gas and pay insurance. The closest thing I've ever had to a job was probably a paper route when I was 13-14. xD
