How did you get your first job?
I had a friend working there and he suggested I apply. It looked like an easy job and it was in the A/C, so I applied, took a few tests, and luckily they hired me in a few weeks.
What did you love (or hate) about your first job?
I loved helping people with their bags, or helping them find things in the store. I loved the feeling of responsibility. I really loved knowing that I didn't need to ask my parents for spending money anymore. I could earn and spend money as I pleased. I sometimes hated that I had to work the schedule that was given to me, or hated getting up early for work.
