    hey everyone!
    i was wondering what eveyones first job was. cause i cant seem to find a first job they all want experience and when i called an advert for a cleaning job that said NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED she siad i didn't have enough experience.

    Thanks
    My first job was stock boy at a grocery store for about 9 months. I quit and before my notice ran out I was rehired as a cashier. I was the first young person the boss had ever hired. Now I work at an amusement park in guest services.
