my very first job was a little corner grocery store.  I'm dating myself here, but I remember when candy bars were bigger, and only cost 15 to 25 cents.   I was able to sell ciggarettes and gas was only around 65 cents a gallon! 

Those were the days. 

Of course I only made $1.50 an hour.  :)

I have been and always will be, your friend.

Good for you Tim. Like Meds said it's better to have a job while you look for a better one. But you can learn valuable lessons working in job like that. I know I did.  I worked at a pet store for almost two years as my first job. Cleaning dog doo and bird doo wasn't too fun, but I got to play with puppies and kittens and I learned A LOT about different breeds. I left the job when I transferred to another college 70 miles away. I think I had 9 different employers within the 4 years I was in college. I left them all on my own accord for better pay, but some of those I worked simultaneously as I went to school full-time:

a pet store
a bridal shop
Esprit (women's clothing)
Banana Republic
Tanner women's apparel

A local sign shop as a typesetter
A fountain company as a bronze sculptor
An art gallery assistant
A professor's assistant teaching students metalsmithing techniques (welding, casting, soldering)

Graphic design sprinkled in between

I learned something valuable from each place, whether I liked the job or not. They all had a hand in building a little of my character.
