13. I worked at a local printers shop. Mostly counting note pads. It SUCKED, but taught me a bunch about the kind of work I did not want to do.

Joined the Navy at 17, went to war at 18. Does that count as a job?

Much more noble than counting note pads!

Depends what you classify "first jobs" as?

I was a caddie at 13 YO. Had an early morning paper route at the same age....maybe earlier. Worked at a grocery store when I was 15 YO (the first W-2 job I had). Before all this my Dad used us a free laborers mixing concrete and such. No pay involved from him other than room & board. I suspect the grocery store job would be the official "first job".

I mowed lawns and delivered newspapers starting at age 12. Then at 13, I got a job as a stockboy at the local market/convenience store (Be-Lo's jr.). I really never stopped working at something, even though I "retired" six years ago.

16, washed laundry at a Nursing Home and yes, it was often "GROSS". The lady who ran the Laundry was cool so I hung around for several months before I became an Orderly on one of the floors. Enjoyed helping Old Folks, now I R one.... the tables have turned! Been working at something ever since..... 49 years and counting.....

I was 12. My neighbor was head of the circulation department of the local newspaper and I started delivering papers.

I started mowing grass and washing cars at local car lot when I was 12. Worked there until I left for the Navy.
