Hello Cheri,


I always wondered what it would be like to work outside in the heat, it doesn't sound like fun.

My first ever job working for someone other than family babysitting or dog walking was at Friendlys.

Friendly's was not a friendly place Heidi?
What did you do, what kind of place was it?
Too bad about it though :)

my first summer job

it was a monday to friday job, a sunshine eggs.thats right i was the one who washed, loaded, collected,candled,and packed eggs. depending on the eggs.i used a suction cup thing that lifted i believe 36 eggs at once. if the egg was cracked the suction would be broken and all the eggs would fall.

stinky and messy.

i worked there my 16th summer.

i also got mono for working with the dirty eggs.minimum wage and the water we drank water that had javex put in it to kill bacteria.

i di a lot of babysitting before that too.

never want to do that again. but still not my worst job

I kind of fell into my first job.

My mom was the office manager for a john deere implement. WE lived in the boondocks and every once in awhile I'd ride to town with her in the morning and spend the day at the park reading, playing, riding bike and then go swimming in the afternoon. (Small town)

When I was in the sixth grade I was hanging around the implement so much that mom would put me to work filing, etc just to help her out. One day the parts inventory came in and I offered to help put it away and catalog it. When the day was done the boss bought me a pop (woooo big spender!) The next day I was hanging around again and he mentioned to mom that I seemed to know what I was doing as I was reconciling the cash drawer for her, so he said, put her on the payroll. So from that point forward I worked every summer and nights after school and on vacation days until I graduated from college....and became full time after that. I worked there for 10 years!

Eventually I was offered the office manager position for the neighboring town's john deere implement by the regional directors, but I turned it down because it was an hours drive away.

Instead I quit the job to go back to school again and moved on to a bob cat dealership :=)

My first job was at age 14, and I worked as a salesgirl at a retail store that sold cheap stuff, kind of like an old Woolsworth.
