Christmas job at Zayre's Warehouse in Mansfield. 4 hour shift 3 days a week after school (freshman). Awful job, mostly picking packages, loading on a pallet jack, and delivering to shipping. Best part, where amazingly no one got hurt, was we would cut paperclips in half and sling shot them at each other with rubber bands.

I can still recall the smell of the spray-on glue for putting labels on boxes.

Next job was pumping gas at a full serve.

First job. age 13, bussing tables for some really hot waitresses. They would pinch me cheeks and tell me how adorable I was. Paid under the table by owner and then tipped by said waitresses. Ah those were the days.

Caddie for a couple of summers at Mt. Pleasant Golf Club back in Lowell and yeah, it did help prepare me to handle people that were under stress or under the influence. Made me a great waiter later in life which in turn prepared me to be in sales for the last 25 years.

I worked on an assembly line tagging shoes in a warehouse in the summer when I was 14. It was hot, unbreathable air, you had to stand for eight hours, and you had to raise your hand to go to the bathroom. What I learned from that was that I would never work for anyone, especially be a slave for minimum wage, for the rest of my life.

At 18, I got a job as a bartender in a dive bar, made shit tons of money, and it worked putting me through college because there were no loans back then. Found a better bar, made more money, got out of college, went back to grad school still working in bars, got out, went back for another career, and never worked for anyone again. Started my own business that I still have.

I started as a dishwasher at a restaurant/lounge in Brookline called the Elbola.

I worked my way up to line cook at 16 years old and handled the whole kitchen when the chef got sick. At least as well as he did, I might add. I was around drunken Boston Bruins, crusty old timers, college kids, a former chorus girl and petty thieves. Drugs were rampant as was alcoholism. I rode in my first stolen car. The big boss, named "Bull" had a police siren on his Eldorado and would turn it on when the traffic got heavy. I fell deeply in puppy love with a gorgeous waitress named Margo and she had to let me down easy when she figured it out. That stung a bit.

There was another waitress named Charlene who wore micro-miniskirts to work which was notable because she drove a motorcycle. Her nickname?...... Chuck.

Yet another sweet waitress used to live with a guy who was a drummer, but she booted him out because he wasn't getting anywhere with music and she was tired of supporting him. That drummer was named Joey Kramer and that summer Aerosmith hit the bigtime. She was philosophical about it.

God, I loved those waitresses.

That place was awesome and I loved working there, but had to leave when my Dad passed away and I needed more money, which they wouldn't give me.

Overall, working there was fantastic preparation for the real world and I think of it often.

My first job was as layaway clerk in a discount department store that no longer exists (Hills).

I was 16 years old. I started at around $3 per hour, and I remember the first time I worked a bunch of overtime and got a check over $100.

I'm not sure what it prepared me for. I guess I've worked hard my whole life, and it taught me not to take any shit. I quit in epic fashion when they were trying to tell me that I had to work until midnight, which was against the law. Instead of turning them in, I threw my timecard at them and bailed and got a job at Rally's.

Career...

I started in the House Services division of the old New England Telephone. House Services? They clean floors, toilets, and emptied trash cans. It did start me out, sorta, in a high tech career, but not really.

Oddly, as a Northeastern co-op, I started into a military communications company, a branch of Sylvania, that in the mid 1970s was doing the command and control system for the Minuteman ICBMs. That division was sold first to GTE, then to General Dynamics, then to NYNEX, which was formed from New York Telephone and New England Telephone. In effect, I ended up with the company I started at, though with a difference in job descriptions.

Besides babysitting and volunteer camp counselor, my first"real" job was working at McDonalds when I was 16. A McDonalds in a not nice neighborhood, and sometimes at night.
It taught me that food service was not in my future. LOL

Not sure which was first but all most together, to startt and then for 5 or so years, Newspaper route, Caddying at Bass Rocks. Gloucester (absolutely loved it0. A great thing (before riding lawnmowers sans blades) for building at a young age, a solid network with the town's leaders (business, lawyers, Bankers, real estate etc.) especially on Wed. when they all took the PM off and owned the course till 4:30 ish and the 19th hole til closing at 10.
