I sheared Christmas trees, worked in a cannery, and a candy store my last two years of high school.

I had an awesome job making Christmas balls at Rauch Industries. I worked the mini shift which was 4-9.

Working in high school helped me save money toward college expenses, and working in college helped me save money towards expenses when jobs were not readily available after I graduated. I would definitely suggest it!

It's good to get a taste of what it's like to provide for yourself.

I worked as a nanny my junior and senior year! If the kids are older like mine were, work is generally easy and the pay is great!

Wish I had time but I just simply don't. Too many activities that I do and I can't work on Sundays.

No work on Sunday for religious reasons?

I worked several jobs while I was in high school, one of them I used with my co-op classes and was graded for how well I did at work.

I like the idea of that.

It is a really neat program. My boss got an evaluation form and graded me on all sorts of things from how well I did my job, to how often I was late and other things. It made me work harder and do the best I could.
