McDonalds was my first too. Terrible, terrible job - I definitely feel you on that part. Manager never gave the raises she was supposed to. But I did gain an awfully good work ethic from there and I don't regret it. I don't think I could've found a better first job. It really taught me how a day of work felt.
- My first job was at McDonalds. I applied for so many but that was the only place that wanted to hire me, because I think i was around 14. It felt like being in the army.
I made lots of friends, because there's so many employeres there, but you weren't ever alowed to just stand there, you always had to be doing something.
And because there was so many workers there I felt like I was just like another robot with a McDonalds uniform on. I had to wear a hat and proper unform and stuff, you could only wear one type of earrings and no jewelry what so ever. We all looked the same.
I quit because I got sick of it, and about a year and a half later I applied for a job at this little shop at my local shopping center, and I got it :)
There's only 5 people that work there and 2 people that own it, and it's this cute little hippy shop and we sell crystals and jewelry and stuff. I love it!
Now I work at Shop Rite, a super market that I believe is located mostly in the North East of the U.S. I really enjoy it, actually :)
