My first job was growing up on a farm and helping with chores. If I wasn't doing that I was helping my mom in the house with cooking and cleaning. With chores I helped with milking,fed the calves and helped feed the cows. My first job away from home was at a cheese factory where I helped glued boxes of 40 lbs of blocked cheese in boxes! Lasted 3 months until I was laid off! That was my first real job! I ended up working at 3 cheese factories over the first years of my working career!

I fondly remeber my first job. i was a dishwasher in a family owned restaurant. the pay was not that great, but the people were wonderful to work for. It was a good learning experience for me as well. I have had numerous jobs in different fields since then but i can;t forget my first one.

I'm still a student, but the very first thing that I've done which I got paid for was being a student assistant. It's like a personal assistant of a professor and you get to work in their office at school, doing some checking of test papers, doing typing and encoding job for their research work and fixing their student records and the likes. It was fun, I get to earn utilizing my free time. And my boss is very very kind. With the money I get from my work for her, she also does gave me incentives such as free meals and snacks when I worked in her house and when I worked overtime. I miss her.

What a coincidence! My first job was on a movie theater too! It was great, I must say (Especially the free popcorn, drinks and movies) But as a boy I could not go on further than six months, my back started to hurt badly, because I am a man I am always get to pick the heavy stuff, I have felt like I was building a house there , always grabbing heavy sacks of corn and oil... But nonetheless it is a wonderful job!

OH, it was horrible! I was a fact checker for a catalogue, which was mostly like a phone book for companies. I had to call different companies and ask if their address was still bla bla bla street, and if their phone number was still 12345, that kind of stuff. It was really not interesting in any way. But the pay was pretty good!

My first job was working in a friends parents restaraunt as a waitress. It was fun because the restaurant was right on the water...kind of a remote place that everyone local went to eat. I enjoyed it for many reasons but mostly because I worked with one of my best friends at that time ;)
