What was your first real job? (like, you paid taxes and everything)- The first job I had, was working at Stop & Shop (a grocery store) as a cashier. They also had a Dunkin Donuts inside so they stuck me over there a lot since I hated the front end and wanted to be in the Bake Shop but I wasn't yet 18. I worked there for almost a year. And it sucked. Big time.
What was your favorite job? What job did you hate the most? - My favorite job was my last nanny position in Texas before we were forced to move to Oklahoma (army). The kids were 12 and 7, so I had a lot of driving responsibilities and homework help and they could really have conversations with me (I usually work with 1-3 year olds). The family was GREAT and we really became family to one another. We were all very sad when I had to leave. We still talk on Facebook :) The job I hated most was working at Toys R Us, which I did for a whole THREE weeks. It was incredibly boring, very slow, and I had to try to sell their damn credit card to everyone. I didn't sign up to be a cashier to be doing SALES which I will always suck at because I just don't care.
What is your dream job? - If I could find a job that combined nursing, the zoo, and baking cupcakes... then that is my dream job. But, I'm going to school for Psychiatric Nursing, and if I could just skip anatomy I know I will love it! It will probably be awhile until I get my degree though due to the baby and the fact that I'll probably be pregnant again in the near future.
Are you currently working? - I'm a stay at home mom to my 4 1/2 month old son at the moment. I have no desire to work in Oklahoma, where I will probably pay more for childcare than my job will pay. When I first got here I nannied for twin 5 year old boys a few times a week which was fun. They started kindergarten though in the fall so they don't really need me now!
What job should everyone try at least once? - I'm not really sure. But one word of advice I have is that even if you hate your job, do not quit after a few weeks unless you have another job lined up.
