I worked in a Theater and a Drive In that my parents owned in a pair of small towns on the Western Slope of Colorado.

I worked at a burger joint similar to a Wendy's called Wuv's. One day I went to work and it was shut down and out of business. Nice of them to tell the employees!

I worked in an exercise clothing store (hmmmm) when I was 16. This was in the Fonda/Richard Simmons era when people wore leotards, shiny tights, legwarmers, spandex everything and the off-the-shoulder Flashdance tops.

I liked working in retail, it was fun to see the new clothes come in and to help people find things...and if it ever paid anything I would have likely done more of it. I am occasionally tempted to straighten a messy rack at Macy's but then I get over that urge.

First real job was @ 16 years old. I was a radio announcer for a station in Cape Breton (950 CHER). I was doing summer relief (backshifts) & weekends when I was in school. I miss those days so much!!

Believe the station goes by a different call sign today...

I worked at Kmart in the clothing department, but we had to call it the fashions department. Haha. I was 16. I was only there for a couple of months and then started at Baskin Robbins where I worked for the rest of high school. Kim's right about the free ice cream! I can't believe I ate as much as I did and didn't have a weight problem back then.

I worked at a ice cream shop in town. Started when I was 14 and stayed till I was a mommy at 19. Loved that job. I am sure I probably made whatever minimum wage was at the time. But I truly loved it. Had a blast. And all the free ice cream I could eat and my family could eat. No wonder I am so heavy lol

Worked as a clerk archiving some municipal documents during the summer. Pay was around 8$ an hour and I worked 40 hours a week for 2 months. I really enjoyed that job.

My dad had a Dry Cleaning Shop and when we were old enough to count out change we all took turns working after school when we were old enough probably Junior High 12 or 13.

My very 1st job was working for a parks and recreation program, cleaning up trash and painting benches, the summer right before my 16th birthday. When I turned 16 that Sept. I got a job working as a cashier for a supermarket.

Working for my Mom's delivery service before and after school. I started as an assistant at 14 for no pay, moved up to driver at next to no pay. But, then again, she supported me for free, right? LOL

Working in the stockroom of a small island gift shop. I think I was 12 or 13. I can't remember the details though, like pay, hours or how long I worked there. Probably during the summer and just a few hours. I do remember sitting on the floor putting price stickers on things.
