Same here, only I quit after a month. Must be the area cause I learned real quick that the people that didn't pay for there paper came out of my tip money. I then went to deliver flyer'* for some pizza place. When I was legal to work with a work permit I got a job at Burger King.

Dishwasher/busboy at a restaraunt, hated it and quickly went to work in a grocery store. Always had a blast working in retail grocery and still PT as cashier or stocker from time to time.

Really a great place to work till they switch my manager and the store went WAY downhill.

So now, 3 years later, im looking for a new one this summer.

Tough job. There is no automation at all. Everything is by hand.

i was a gofer for some small construction company. I'd fetch equipment, bags of cement, lumber, tile... I was very strong for a 12y.o. working under the table and the pay was better than the paperboy who lived across the street.

First Job

Pouring concrete for my then girlfriends dad . Very hard work, but pay was awesome.

He paid me under the table anywhere from $10 - $13 per hour. I only worked weekends, and brought home alot of bread for a 14 year old.

My first job when I was 14 was grounds crew at a swim club. I got paid $5.15/hr but got to hang out with a good amount of friends so it wasn't too bad.

How about this.....

Cleaning and repairing venitian blinds. There'* one that'* a little more rare than working at RS or one of the big box stores. Back then we were in office buildings over the weekend. Now I've come full circle to be in the office building during the week, and off on weekends.
