That was a lovely memory. :) My first job was a customer service representative for Convergys, a big contact center here in the Philippines. I worked a call center agents for accounts Onstar and GMAC insurance. I moved to Shell as an HR Analyst for two and a half years and boy, that was a very memorable experience too. I worked night shifts and celebrated New Years and Christmases at work. Now I'm working for a company as a SAP consultant and I'm glad I made it here. I always tell myself that I owe it to my previous job experiences- they became good credentials for me to get this job.

I was 20 when I started working, I had just completed my final exams and within a week I landed this job. I worked as a receptionist in a computer institute.

I worked at a fast food place called "Clancy's" in Ohio at the age of 18. I made $4.50 and hour on 20 hours a week and I think I worked there for about a year. I walked to work everyday and and to home everyday and got paid every two weeks. I hated that job. I wore a horrible outfit of red shirts and black stretchy pants. I also wore a stupid hat. I eventually quit due to pregnancy and got another job at Dairy Mart and Clean-All. I kept those two jobs all the way through my pregnancy and finally quit before giving birth. I made a ton of money for back in those days because I worked 60 hours a week total between the two and $6.00 an hour at both places. I saved up for baby stuff and later got my own place. That was big bucks back then. I am 32 now and can't save even pocket lint from jeans HAHA!

I was 21 at that time when I worked as an agent in a real estate. I only worked there for 2 months and that was it. It was not serious because I only did for experience and I had a friend who always told me to go with her and I did and I end up going out with the whole company.

my first job was a shoe shine boy for my grandfather at 6 years old I just could not resist the glint of coins and loved hearing them jingle in my pockets so everyday I'd shine them regardless of how much he'd pay me i ended up getting a bike at christmas time hahaha and then i moved up to being his mini accountant when i became more confident with my addition and subtraction skills at 7 years old since then i can't think of a time where i didn't work either for my dad, my grandfather or anyone else i just loved to earn no matter how much it was, a peso is still a peso and there's nothing more satisfying then earning your own keep
