14 I worked on a farm farming and shit. My first kinda real job was a car wash at 16.

I forgot - Had my own mowing business when I was 8, and babysat when I was 10. I got paid so it counts.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Worked at a local construstion company stocking their filters, and other parts on the weekend, at 14. Soon learned that $1.00 an hour wasnt shit, and that certain gas powered construction equipment had carbs, and other parts, that cross referenced with many of my friends dirt bikes. I then began a black market part supply shop on the weekends, selling parts to friends in need. After my folks saw the new cordless phone, home stereo (in my bedroom), and some other things, they began to question my income. I quit, and got a "real" job when I turned 16. My "real" job, was at a local burger joint.

Camp counselor at a Boy Scout Camp last summer at 17. Greatest job ever. I got paid to be outside 24/7, camp, hike, shoot guns, be in nature, and help give back to an organization that gave me so much.

First job was a part time office assistant (filing, answering phones, ) at a flooring store. 2 months in they fired the commercial salesperson and then realized that no one in the store knew how to read blueprints which was a big part of that job....I did (going to school at the time to learn how to draw blueprints) so I took over until they found someone else. Even though it payed minimum wage that was the best job I have ever had and it was because of the people I worked with! I still keep in touch with most of them to this day...and I haven't worked with them since 2/2002!

First real job was when I was 16 working on my friends dads orchard...got paid to be outside pruning trees, tieing trees down, grading fruit, helping customers when not up on the mountain, helping build his new building, and helping remodel his sales floor. Hard job but loved it more than anything, very rewarding and pleasing to know I had helped out so much on the orchard. Too bad $8 an hour wouldnt support me so I had to get a part time job at a local steakhouse as a waiter so i could go to school

Worked in a metal fab shop making tables, chairs, light fixtures, etc. all by hand. Hammer and anvil style. All I can remember before that was picking up hay bails and set up/tear down of PA systems.

First real job was at a distribution warehouse for McDonalds. Pulled orders in the warehouse for 11 bucks an hour. Hated it at first but it put me in the best physical shape I've ever been in.
