    I've actually had quite a few jobs considering I'm only 19! I've worked in a factory twice over two different Summers. As it was 'off-season' we were mainly packing cosmetics rather than the factory's usual production of hampers. My friend & I spent our whole first day putting 'tester' stickers on tubes of lipstick I've also worked in a call centre. It was inbound calls and I actually really liked it

    Other than that I've worked at M&S twice now over the Christmas period. Currently studying International Journalism at Uni.

    Well I have been in some form of IT or another for the past 44 years. Before that.

    Started delivering Newspapers
    Worked at a fast food joint
    Worked for a department store
    Joined the Air Force where in addition to my AF IT duties I held part time jobs as a movie theater usher, ticket taker, projectionist and manager, bartender, head cashier and again in a department store.
    Since 1975 when I got out of the AF I worked as a government IT contractor for two different companies on a total of 6 different projects. Since 1993 I have been working for my favorite uncle (SAM) in IT.

    When I was still at school I had a Saturday morning job at a local greengrocers, hand carting fruit and vegetables from the shop to an indoor market a short distance away where thay had a stall.
    I also had an [unpaid] job in my teens where I worked on stage at a theatre where my Mum worked. This gave me a great opportunity to meet many of the stars of the 60`s which are still highly regarded today...the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, etc.etc.....and of course Eric Clapton.

    My first "real" job was as a draughtsman at an engineering company, eventually ending up as sales manager for the same company.
    After 16 years there I, along with another of their employees, set up our own engineering business where I stayed until taking an early retirement 5 years ago.

    I am now an unpaid Mod here!

    Most of you wont know me, but thought i'd share some of my background.

    Parents moved abroad when I was 6 months old.
    Never had a job in school years, although did a lot of computer repair work for family, friends and friend of friends.
    Left school, moved back to the UK.
    Went to college, got minimum qualifications for an apprenticeship with the Defense aviation repair agency (civilian side for military of defense aircraft maintenance).
    Apprenticeship lasted a year as we lost the contract from the M.o.D.
    Got a job as a electronics technician at an Airline.
    resigned from position and applied for another position as a base maintenance aircraft mechanic with the same airline...

    almost the story of my life. :D

    Sounds similar to my DH's job I think. Maybe just a different title.

    I have been a kitchen assistant at a busy pub during college. I have worked in the office of a car spares delivery company, a part time barmaid and a teaching assistant. I'm about to return to college to do an NVQ level 2 course for a Learning support/teachers assistant.
