Discribe your first job. What did it pay? What were your duties? What was your boss like?
My first job was at the Santa Anita Golf Course in the coffee shop. The year was 1965. The pay was $1.00 an hour plus tips.
I had to come in early and help the cook/boss to prepare the specials for the day. Then as the golfers came in, I was the waitress. There were only the two of us and a dishwasher, so I not only served, I cleared, cleaned and set the tables. The golfers were obnoxious. I was young - only 16 years old and they made the most disgusting suggestions to me. I was a good waitress, but it was a tough job for me.
My boss was the cook/owner of the coffee shop. He was pretty gruff and gave me the dirtiest jobs to see if I could cut it working there. I didn't make it too long, because he didn't want to hear me complain about the nasty things the golfers said.
