    I started with working at fast food (Sonic) became a manager got paid 7.25 an hour. Quit then went to work at a restaurant helped get the place running set up the menu and got the place operational. Then went to work in auto detail, did not like the hours and they pay was not worth my effort so i quit there. Iam going to be 20 in July . SO I held 2 manager jobs before most people hold one :)

    Don't let them talk you into management when they see your resume. Listen to us, we know of what we speak. Can you live on $8.50 an hour?
