our RadioShack was not a full fledged RS, it was just a corner of the store that had about 1/2 the stuff that a normal RS has. I got the same employee discount that I got in the entire store, 20% off. However, on higher priced items, I could special order for myself and then only pay 10% above cost. That is how I got my Ipod.

started when i was about 12 working for my mother at our famliy business(beauty supply store). got sick of listening to my mom, so i got a paper route when i was around 14. Then i turned 15 and started working at McDonalds, it was great though because all my friends worked there and we had a blast.

My dad helped me forge my birth certificate so I could get my first job when I was 13. My dad knew I was determined to get a job and he figured if he didn't help me I'd find a way to get what I wanted... as always. I'm very determined when I want something. I've always had a strong work ethic.

I started working at Sizzler as a waitress, then worked at Dunkin' Donuts, then went to work for several construction companies (which is where I learned to speak construction fluently ).

my dad owns a catering business on the Main Line here and we go all over, eventually if i earn it, i will inherit the business. $10/hr was the starting and i was 13. now(age 20)...well im still at 10 and eventually things will progress

Try going into Catering/food service. But not the local diner, you work yourself silly and for next-to-nothing.
