    I might be cheating since I'm still a senior atm, but I've already worked a couple of part time jobs. I was a busser for most of my junior year and then just this July I got a job at a movie theater. The theater pays like shit (minimum wage) but it's a lot more fun than I ever had bussing at a mexican joint. I don't dread going into work like I used to, and the hours are a little better (although with tips I made waaaayyy more than I do now as an usher).

    My first on-the-books official job I got just as soon as I turned 16. I worked in a 1-hour photo lab inside a drug store. I blew my first paycheck on a small battery-operated guitar amplifier. I think minimum wage then was like $5.15/hour.

    As a junior, I worked at a bagel/sandwich/coffee joint for slightly more money and kept that job till I went off to college. I blew all of my paychecks on a P.O.S. 1984 Chrysler LeBaron convertible that never ran right, if at all.

    My first job was when I was 15 as a line cook at a big ice cream joint right on the beach. All the other cooks were 18+.

    Lol you didn't even go to high school.

    I was a labourer for an absolute shite construction firm before working in a warehouse packing up chocolates. Both paid minimum wage (barely) and both jobs lasted a month.

    So that's what is wrong with you.

    I worked at my Dad's car lot fixing up wrecked cars, hauling junk, and driving vehicles to other lots to get worked on.

    I didn't really work in high school. Come on, I'm way too privileged to do peasant shit like that.
    Ok, I did help at an annual stocktaking at a family's friend's company once.

    I was in vocational school rather than high school, but the premise should be same. I was on one place fixing up Hewlet Packard's PCs and on another place creating electric smokers. They lasted for a at least two months.

    I dogsat for my neighbors. I lived in a compacted neighborhood so the farthest houses were only 10 minutes away by bike.
    I made good money doing it and I did it for nearly two years until I landed a retail job at a tourist store the summer after I graduated.

    I also helped out at my friend's father's jewelry store whenever he needed me.

    Freelancing stuff. We don't have part-time jobs around here to mix job with high school.

    When I was in high school my resume looked like this:
    Stone cutting, masonry, logging, carpentry, fast food, catering, and butchery.

    When I turned 15 I had 2 jobs all the way up until I graduated and joined the Navy.

    I'm rather envious that most people got to have a childhood.

    Job? Bitch, school was work enough as it was. Not that I ever did much. But still.
