I was just thinking about all the jobs I have had.
My first paying job other than allowance from parents was working with my neighbor at the age of 12 was dusting the bottoms of all the chairs at a lab. I earned $1.00 a night. That was awesome back then!
Then of course babysitting jobs. I enjoyed doing that. I took care of 4 children for the sister of the neighbor that i dusted chairs for. I was like 13 or 14. Got payed pretty good for it.
Then I started cleaning many different buildings with the family that i babysat for. I got payed really well for a 14, 15 year old. They were good to me.
When I was 15 I got a job at Big Boy's with my friend at the time. I was a hostess for 6 months and then i became a waitress for 6 months. It was my first official paycheck!!
At 16 I started to work for Mcdonald's, I worked there for the next 6 years. I worked my way to crew chief just under a manager because i was too young to be on. I was fired because a manager was stealing out of my drawer. It was only after i left that they found this out.
After I graduated High School I worked Mcdonald's and I worked for Mobil gas station, i did that for over a year. I quit Mobil because the owner was asking to many personal question and my boyfriend(who is my husband) didn't like it.
I worked for Motel 6, i worked 3 months, the day they made me head housekeeper i never showed up there again. I feared for my life because there was alot housekeepers there that had been there longer than me and would never take me seriously. (i still believe it was racial).
I ended up back at another McDonald's and worked there 10 more years. I worked my way to 3rd assistant manager. I was pretty happy there, but did not get along with the supervisor's daughter. I had to quit on the spot one day when it became quite clear that i was about to grab her by her skinny throat!
Don't worry at the time i was lucky to get a job working at a Blockbuster's and had been working both jobs for 4 months. When i decided to quit, Blockbuster's was asking me to quit Mcdonald's to work for them full time...I took the leap!
I worked for Blockbuster's for 5 whole years!!!! I was a manager there from the day that i walked thru the doors. I loved that job!! But all good things come to an end. I was knocked down from working full time, to working only 20 hours a week. So i was forced to search for either a full time job or a part time job. I got lucky to work at the hospital I am working now.
The hospital also demanded alot of my time and sure wanted me to quit Blockbuster's to work for them full time. It just felt right and so far so good it was a wise decision.
My current job is my favorite, there is a variety of jobs that i do that makes it interesting. The pace is much different, and for the first time I am not "the boss" I so wanted out of being the boss.
My worst job, Motel 6! it was digusting. You don't want to know what i have seen in a room.
So what's your favorite job? and what job did you totally hate!
