    Amusement park for $6.85/hr, which was minimum wage at the time. It was complete ass, as all first jobs should be.

    My first job was in a comic shop working for store credit. It got me cool shit.

    My first paying job was at a gas station with a car wash. We would wash the cars before they went thru an automatic car wash. Worked there for about 2 years.

    I used to work in the library at my highschool whenever I had a free period.

    $10 a week for about an hours worth of work a day hardly working and I didn't have to attend a class.It was pretty sweet.

    My first job was a waiter in a retaurant. I was going for a 'career', but they screwed me.
    Basically, a guy quit and I was chosen to fill his shoes. I did a great job, if I may blow my own horn, and told I was a valuable asset, etc, 'far better than the previous guy'.
    A few months later, he crawls back - I got the 'move on' to shorter hours and less responsibility cos I was, I quote, "Quite honestly too expensive". You pay for the experience you dolts! Suffice to say I resigned.

    Helping an acquaintance of mine and his girlfriend sell pirated videos back in junior high school. We'd earn about ten dollars per video, and we split the proceeds equally after deducting a fee for our video source. Good times.

    At 14 I worked for a Dry-waller. I did mostly cleanup of all the scraps, but I also did masking for ceiling spraying. I made $40 a day under the table.

    I was 14 and got a job working in the kitchen of a retirement home. Basically I cleaned old people's nasty coughed up food off plates. It was horrible but it paid relatively well (4 quid 12 pence an hour) with double - triple for public holidays.

    Paper route when I was 14. I don't even think they let kids do that anymore.
