High School Jobs

I got my first Part-time job when I was 15 working at a Car wash in the Summertime. A friend of mine, Rob, worked there and got me the job. I think it paid $2.90 an hour, which I considered a Fortune. There were no Allowances in my family, so most of my brothers and sisters started working as soon as they could to get Spending money. I hated working at the car wash, Drying cars all day. After only about six weeks working there (though it seemed much longer), I Up and quit one day. I felt badly about not giving a Two-week notice, but I Had it up to here with the job. Luckily, another friend of mine got me a job working at a Nursing Home, washing dishes in the kitchen. I started the day after my 16th birthday, Qualifying me for a slightly higher Minimum wage.

Life Scrubbing Pots and pans was No picnic, Let me tell you. I Lasted there for only three months, working after school and on weekends while trying to keep up with my homework in high school. My next job was much better: Making keys at a Locksmith. The Working conditions were much better, and I had flexible hours around my school schedule. I stayed at that job for nearly seven years, right through my college years at the University of Minnesota. To this day I still know the names of all the common key Blanks, but it doesn’t Come in handy very often!
