    The first thing I was given compensation for was putting putty in nail holes at the construction sites where my dad ran his painting crews. At 5 I could only reach so high up so there were a lot of nail holes above 4 feet or so.

    First paying job was as a yard person for a storage company.

    I worked in a cubicle at the office building of my dad's company. I think I had just turned 16. HATED IT.

    I spent most of my time surfing the internet and talking to the cute girl across the hall... come to think of it thats not too much different from my current job... at least I've shed the cubicle and work at a place with my own office :up:

    my first official job... was at a car dealership, I started in the winter just pushing snow off the cars when it snowed so they were presentable... then I started working there through school, washing cars, and cleaning the shop at night... i stayed there all through highschool, and college, after college i started to sell cars... then i quit there after oh.. 10 years or so, and moved on my my second job... which after 4 years, is still my current job... What a great gig that car dealership was though... cruising around in peoples cars, we dogged it so much there it was ridiculous! alot of funny stories came from working there...

    After reading a few more posts I lowered my standards. I suppose my first job was nicking Porno mags from our local news agencies and selling them to the kids at my boarding school. Made a bloody fortune!

    I used to be a waiter at a place called Meadowbrook Lodge, it was where people had their reception, prom, sweet 16 ect... I did that for two years, i hated it but made good friends working there so it was good. I was 15 i think when i started. My boss broke so many laws. I remember at 16 working a party until 2am on a tuesday. I got a good tip that night so i did not mind. i remember working during a day i had school so i had to skip school to work a party for a hospital committie, which was baiscly a whole bunch of old people and well that was the worst party i worked by far. My favorite party i worked was an Indian Party where they got there own severs so i did nothing all night except clean at the end of the night

    I worked at Tomorrowland Terrace in the Magic Kingdom at Disney World. At that time it was the busiest fast food restaurant in the world. What a nightmare! Worked my way up though and eventually got hired to sing and play Chip 'n Dale.

    Judging that you are about my age, and I used to go to Disney World a lot when I was younger up into my late teens, I probably checked you out when you working :up: LOL

    Im 14. My first job was making professional barbecues. I now work as an assistant to a professional D.J.

    The Indian party was the worst one I've been to. I had to stand there doing nothing since they had their own "D.J.". 6 hours and they wouldnt let me leave.

    I do some things for extra money, which since Im 14, I have no idea what to spend on.
