I finally got around to getting a job (At a gas station, mind you) and today was my first day, exciting right? Yeah well it was not only busy but it poured non-stop throughout my entire shift. The roofs they have over the gas tanks didn't stop my shoes/socks from getting soaked which helped towards my feet being in a lot of pain by time I left.

Damn you weather!

Yeah but I can't really complain since the hardest part of my job is making sure people that don't know you can't self-serve in NJ do my job for me. Yeah... >_>

First jobs usually suck.

I enjoyed my first job for the most part. My biggest issue was that for some reason the floor was ALWAYS wet with the old General Manager there. When we got a new one, the floor was magically always dry. I always had cold ankles where my pants would get wet and if I wore chucks to work, I'd have frozen feet all day. Not fun :(

Was your first job a bathroom attendant? >_>

My first job was a janitor at a fitness center. The best thing about the job was that I could work whenever and for how long I wanted, plus I could work out for free, which I was big into at the time. But that was outweighed by having to clean bathrooms and see 80-year-old ball sacks every day.

EDIT: Congrats, Sheck0! You didn't mention whether you are inclined to go back or not.

I remember my first job, it was pretty cool. I worked as a web designer and developed websites for many companies around here.

I remember that I was completely lost during my first day, but I eventually got used to it... The main problem was that my former bosses had a little problem with paying me. :P

Oh yeah, I'm up for working a couple of overnight shifts a week right now. The only thing I'm not looking forward to is the possibility of being bored to death. Thanks for the congrats, it took me long enough to get my first job.

What? Making sure people do your job for you?

My first job was at Little Caesar's. It sucked for the first couple months til we got a sweet manager and an even sweeter assistant manager. I'd open the store with the asst and since it was dead in the morning, all we'd do was make dough, and then sit up front while she smoked and we just hung out and talked. And she'd always give me money to go across the street to McDonalds and get us some cappuccinos. So we'd hang out and drink those from 11am to 3pm and blast Tenacious D because they were soooooo in at the time :P

I fucking hate that. You get spoiled at a job with a cool manager and lax working conditions, and you or the boss always eventually quit because even though the job doesn't usually feel like going to work, i's always like minimum wage. And eventually you get tired of living from paycheck to paycheck and cutting already short expenses.

My first job was fucking awesome.

There was this 'haunted forest' near my town, and I got a job taking tours around it. I had to take groups around whilst acting in character. I got to make up stories, improvise, joke around, and make children cry.

It was a fantastic job.

Yeah but those kinds of jobs get old really quick. I worked there three months... and every job I've had that was super easy and relaxing ended up getting boring. In the end, I'd prefer to do a job that I really enjoy. Teaching classes always goes by super fast because I enjoy it, even though it's hard work.

No making sure they don't do my job for me. My job is to serve gas and people in NJ aren't allowed to pump their own gas.

Ah, you just said it wrong... makes sense now... but that would be so irritating! I'd be really annoyed if I couldn't pump my own gas... I avoid full service places for that reason... though it's nice that it creates jobs.

Itīs mostly hard for young people to get a good place in these days. I remember my first day in spas, it was Ok, because the boss was very patient, I only had to ask a lot of questions to understand how everything works. Only if the money were better.

My first job was at Shop Rite pushing carts in the parking lot. One day I got yelled at by the daytime manager for going out and collecting carts in the rain, saying I wasn't allowed to do that. Later that night, the night time manager yelled at me for not going out in the rain to collect carts. It was fun.
