    After sitting around and listening to my mother bitch and moan about me beeing a lethargic bum, I've decided to start looking for a job. I was thinking of the usual first job (McDonalds), but I can't stand the retards who already work there. Checked the newspaper, and almost everything "Needed Experiance" of a year or more, screw experiance. I wouldn't really be getting a job if I didn't need to support the function of a cell phone and such, plus extra money is always a good thing. I came to 12oz for other ideas for a first occupation

    So, what was your first job?

    My first 4 jobs were food service, my first was a fast food mexican place. I also ended up getting fired within 2 months from my first 4, than got a job in a non-food place and worked there for 3 years. You gotta pay your dues but check out janitor type jobs or corner stores.

    my first job was as a dishwasher at a retirement home for $5 and hour!
    so nasty, but it could be fun at times, like half-eaten food fights!!! and jello fights!!! then i moved up to waiter at the same retirement home. retirement homes usually hire very young people for easy work, check that.

    haha. we've got to hang out one day.

    my first job was in high school and i was a dental assistant. got paid $15 an hour. he was an asshole so i didnt like it. also not to mention that i had to wear the white uniform and white keds. i hated looking into old people's mouths, and i hated to hear children cry. i liked giving out lil toys and stickers to the kids and i met a few boys from neighboring high schools. so i had connections.:)

    **a note to the thread starter. As was said, you gotta pay your dues, never turn down any type of work at any time, every bit helps and pushes you further. You need to gain expeirience and then everything else will follow.
