Hello guys, After graduation, I had to leave home to look for greener living. I needed a job to survive and take care of my needs so I started applying to different organisations. I got my first job 3 months after. I never liked it, but I had to survive. It was a sales job, we were to market some international magazines and the pay was $30 per month. I was working, but swore to change job to another one as soon as possible. After 6 months, I got another one with $35 per month, but it was way better than my first job So, what was your first job, how much were you paid, did you enjoy doing it? Image: pixabay.com

My very first job that I was paid for was a temporary job where I was hired to be a retail person watching the sidewalk sale merchandise. I was paid $1.15 an hour. When I joined the military in 1973, I was paid about $300 a months, but I had a shared room in a barracks and also they fed me. months, but I had a shared room in a brick and also they fed me. The same military member today makes $1,800 a month as brand new, plus the equivalent of about $1,000 for housing, plus whatever the financial amount for the food is. They make more than I do being 17 or 18 and brand new, then I do with my military retirement.
After my exams at uni, I started as a trainee teacher at a secondary grammar school. It doesn't make sense if I tell you how much I earned. It was the year 1970 and Germany still had the Deutsche Mark, a currency which doesn't exist anymore. Now we have Euro.

I told plushies when I was 15 and I made like 10 bucks per plushie and made like 200 bucks in a year. Which is pretty decent for a 15 year old haha My first actual job was K-mart and I worked for 2 weeks with 7.80 per hour.
My very first job was when I was 14. I was in an orphanage, and would be sent to foster carers for school holidays. One of my foster carers ran a bakery, and let me work there during the holiday to earn a little money. My first job after I left school was in a milk bar/cafe. I can't remember what either of them paid - it was over 50 years ago.
