    QUOTE(Burnthewood @ May 22 2006, 08:13 PM) »

    I work on a Canadian Forces Base in Trenton, Ontario.
    I work on the air cadet training centre! Hooray!
    I love the job. Great pay, good hours, and the best part is all the great people I get to meet!

    Hey this is totally off topic, but my english teacher used to teach in a highschool in Trenton lol.

    But I work at a restaurant as a hostess for $7.45 an hour and get tip out every two weeks (about $20-$25) and i'm 18. They asked me if I wanted to serve because it's more money but I refused. image

    hey! Fast food is SO bad i discovered.. it's j/ the rush and stuff. But other than that-- it's not a bad start image . I'm @ Taco Bell! image hehe. I only get minimum wage ($6.75 here) and i'm 16. But once i complete steps and tests, i get a $.25 raise. Not bad FOR NOW. But i am looking for a new job. i think i do a more-than-perfect job @ my place. I deserve better pay hehe.

    I tutored math/science and I got paid 20 dollars for 1.5 hours, but it's summer now, so no one needs math help -__-

    I plan on taking private students for violin during the summer, 10 dollars for half an hour. A lot of kids actually make a ton of money off of private lessons. image

    Currently, I'm under training/working at a nail salon/spa. She said I'd get ~100 dollars a day (9-10 hours) depending on how many customers I get, that's without tip. I don't get paid when I'm getting trained, and that's about two three weeks.

    My friend works at Coldstone for 6.75 an hour + tip (which isn't much...). Another girl I know works at Jewel (grocery store), but after union dues and taxes, she only gets like 5.25 an hour.

    Right now I'm a sophomore.

    Yeah, and I need to make 5000 by the end of the summer. image Like that's going to fall from the sky. image

    please do not PM me asking me to close threads, etc! i am no longer a mod! ^^ thanks!

    I hope there isn't a thread about this already.
    Sorry if there is.

    Anyway, I was just wondering how your first jobs were (and what they were)?

    I just got hired at Sbarro's Pizza today, and I'm really nervous/excited.
    I start next Monday. image

    Wish me luck!

    My first and current job is at maccas.
    At first i REALLY hated it, especially when i went through crew training, then dreaded work for about a month, then got over it, and made some friends.

    the customers Richard Simmons me off non stop. but if they're really bad, i go stingy on the fries on purpose. : D teach those riude people.

    god luck at your job image
