Yeah, don't be turned off of this topic yet, I just wanted to ask everyone here a question.

What did you do for your first job? Strictly out of curiosity, of course.

I worked at Sandy's Drive In, Great Falls Montana, it was 1962 and Sandy's was a 15 cent hamburger joint, competing with McDonald's. Obviously he lost but it did last for several years. Owner was a German guy we called Mr. Kool, never to his face.

Range attendant at a shooting club. Loaded skeet and trap bunkers with clay targets and stocked the ammo bunker with gunpowder and lead shot.

That was just a weekend job because I also shot there.

My first "commercial" job was a stereo repairman after school at a local TV shop. Recruited by way of the vo-tech dept of my high school. I got paid $1.50/hr. I continued on there after graduation until I moved away to go to tech school in Kansas City.

Hasn't happened yet, hopefully I'll get the job at the movie theater that I recently filled out an application for.

My first and current job to this day is a balloon entertainer. I started when I was around 15 and as long as the gigs keep rolling in I see myself doing it through the rest of college. As a mater of fact I was just booked for a county fair and a festival in Oregon.


As always,
Dylan

Sounds awesome! I have always dabbled in balloon animals, but I am not very good. That is awesome that you have a steady stream of gigs coming in for that!

Having a trade like that is always a very good thing. It's a life skill you will never forget, and you always have a job if no one is hiring. Makes me wonder why I'm not doing it...

Yeah, that is the whole reason I learnt how to play guitar; so I could do solo acoustic gigs if NOTHING else worked out for me. :lol:

Originally a busser for a local restaurant. Thought I belonged in that world for work and am so glad I got out and realized I was wrong.

My long-standing job now is at Calvin Klein. Which I absolutely (genuinely) love :)
