For three years (and full-time each summer), I was the laundry boy in a smallish hospital. The job involved collecting, weighing and washing around five tons dry weight per day of pissy, pukey, bloody, shitty laundry... and lots that was fairly clean.I absolutely LOVED working in the hospital for it's positive social climate. I was a cute, slim, blonde hard-working young man and was treated exceptionally by everyone, nurses, cleaning ladies and doctors. I didn't dwell on the unpleasant part of the job but did it as efficiently as possible. I was earning nearly triple the minimum wage earned by my burger-flipping friends, so the job paid my way through university as well.
Paper boy.Then fast food hell at burger King.Oy! That was probably the last time I had fast food.
I mowed lawns, delivered newspapers but my first "real" job was at McDonald's. It was a true leaning experience and they had such a well developed training/development plan 30 years ago. I see companies that still haven't got a clue and I even after college and grad school, my time at McDonald's continue's to serve me very well.
McDonalds - I was known as the King of the Fries Station.
I, too, mowed lawns and cleaned pools. But the "real" first job was for a fabric store as a stock boy. I took the shipments and stocked the store, did the cleaning, and eventually became a sales person/cutter. Believe it or not, it was a fun job. I only worked it for about 6 months during my senior year of high school...I quit because of senior activities that would interfere.
I played piano for a small country church. And I sold freeze pops and ice cream sandwiches during the summertime. But my first real job was McDonald's. I hated working drive-thru (small talk and all that jazz) but I was a beast on the fry station.I eventually after about a year because my hours had dwindled to nothing.
I delivered newspapers and I consider that my first "real" job since I made enough money to file a tax return.
I worked at McDonalds while I was in college. I hated that fucking job.
First real job was at Walmart. I worked as a sales rep in the electronic department...hated it
