    How much did you make?

    At your first job? I was just reading an article where a guy said he was paid once a month and brought home $275 a month.

    My first job in high school was at a Lawson's (similar to UDF). I made $1.65 and hour.

    My first job out of college I made $4.65 an hour working on a Psych inpatient unit at a hospital.

    I don't remember my hourly rate at my second job, which was at a domestic abuse shelter, but we were paid montly and I brought home $711 a month. I had a knife pulled on me, a gun aimed at me, and a bomb wired to my car in that job. All that for 700 bucks.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    And NONE of that ugliness would have been necessary had you just agreed to go out with me, dammit.


    I made $1 an hour on my first job, in the summer between my sophomore and junior year in high school. I ran a roto-tiller, busting up very hard soil. It nearly shook me to death the three weeks I worked for this guy.

    But, it enabled me to buy those new spikes from Sears, the ones Ted Williams endorsed, 'cause he was on their advisory board, you know. Bought a cool fly rod too.

    My first job was at the Mariemont Theater - $2.25 an hour, 30 hours a week.

    Once I delivered Auto Parts and made $4.00 an hour... after a year I got a 25 cent raise.

    I quit.

    Re: How much did you make?

    I made $3.50 an hour working at Ayer Electric on Duck Creek Road.

    Once the Summer was over I took a pay cut to work for Sporty's Pilot Shop
    at the Clermont County Airport: $3.44/hour.

    This was 1985, I believe.

    $2.50/hour in 1979. (still have my tax returns) I worked as a receptionist/secretary in a non-profit counseling agency. I remember my oldest sister making $5/hour doing the same job for the county Board of Elections and then quiting before the year was up because she couldn't take the stress.... :thumbdown

    Never had any of that but would get some wild looking husbands wanting to know where their wives were (if the wives went to the women's shelter) - I remember one wearing a heavy wool coat and never taking his hands out of his pockets. I called security, but he had already left when they arrived. The office building was opened in the morning around 5:30 but the office didn't open until 8 - so anyone could come in - mostly what we got was homeless people coming in out of the cold/heat.

    Re: How much did you make?

    I was a caddy and made about $30-$35 a round. Around $8 an hour. Then started carrying doubles and would make $60-$70 a round. Cash. It's the way to go.

    thing was, they had me punching out under some other guy's timecard. thought that was kind of fishy and left.

    I had a paper route, and made $30 a week. If that doesn't count, then my first actual non-paper route job was unloading trucks at Meijer for $5.50 an hour.

    And for the record, we had a Lawson's in Piqua when I was growing up. It became a Dairy Mart though, sometime around 1990-1992.

    I started out working as a delivery guy in a non-chain drug store in 1976. I made $1.87 an hour. I drove around alot, and the drug store had a tremendous liquor business. I spent alot of time delivering liquor. I would drive around with cases of liquor iin the back of a hatchback to all the rich folks houses. Never once did a cop pull me over with all that booze in the car. That had to be illegal as heck!

    This store (in Rushville, In) was back then (in pre-Ticketmaster days) a Reds ticket outlet. Gordy Coleman would stop in occaisionally and chat while making his rounds. He was a really jovial guy.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Re: How much did you make?

    My first regularly paying job was at a local movie theatre in Northern Virginia, making $6.50/hr. When I moved back to Cincinnati, I worked summers in college at another movie theatre here, eventually "retiring" from the summer job biz at $9.75/hr.

    Not bad, considering all I did was stand around and order kids younger than me to do work.

    Re: How much did you make?

    I made $10 an hour as a secretary in high school. I made the same amount as a research assistant in undergrad. Additionally, I did some babysitting as favors to my parents' friends. One of my mom's friends had me babysit her toddler daughter from 5 pm - 1 AM, and then slipped me a bill as I walked out the door. It was a $20 (for 8 hours of babysitting). Keep in mind this was the year 2000 I believe.
