Story:
Even though it was nearly 30 years ago it is refreshing to note that my first job and the place I did it still exists. I was a candy bar assistant at the Piccadilly Cinema in North Adelaide. At that time it was only one cinema. My job was to serve behind the candy bar, make Choc tops/popcorn and stock the shelves. I then got the opportunity to usher (which was higher pay). I worked with some great people and am still in touch with a few of them to this day. I was there part time for approximately 3 years. Not only did it give me valuable pocket money but it taught me the importance of good customer service which has helped me considerably in my career.
