My 1st job was with the US census Bureau-- just for the summer ( 7+ year ago)

they paid well ..at the time it was $15/hr

travel time and miles are also paid for as well

if i spent some time at home working on my assignment then i can put it down as work time as well

as for workload .. they gave me a week to finish a day's worth of work

so much waste and abuse with these government jobs

but at least it set the standard for me above $15/hr or nothing

When I was 17, I worked part-time at a Chinese supermarket.

I only got the job because they needed people who can speak proper English lmao.

I worked at an Indian restaurant in my teens. I really enjoyed working there until something unpleasant happened, after which I quit.

When I was a kid I cleaned out banks.

No, really. I worked for a custodial company and a lot of our contracts were cleaning businesses like banks after-hours. I remember they were very anal about security. For good reason, I suppose. A power outage during an electrical storm one night caused the (silent) alarms to go off, so the team was greeted with a parking lot of swat vans when we were getting ready to go to the next site.

First unofficial job was cutting tobacco. I was eight years old and got paid in cash. It was good money for a kid, enough to buy video games and computer parts when needed (to be fair, it lasted me until the following summer).

First official job (work permit, etc etc) was working at a computer repair store. I also, simultaneously, worked at a Wendy's (with what little remaining hours I had left on my "limit" for a 15-year-old). Afterwards, I was an intern Network Administrator at a company called 'HSA" (High-Speed Access") which was later bought out by what's known today as "Metrocast" (an ISP/cable company).
