First Job – #BEDM

Topic: Tell us about your first job. Did you love it or was it horrendous?

I really enjoyed my first job. It was at Millets ‘The Outdoor Store’.
I was part time while I was at college and my best friend worked there as well. Everyone who worked there was lovely so there were always some laughs at work.
I remember in my interview the manager asked me what a 3 season sleeping bag was…obviously my answer of ‘A sleeping bag which is warm enough for 3 seasons’ was acceptable because I got the job! I was so proud of myself.
I ended up learning rather a lot about sleeping bags, walking boots, waterproof coats etc…I still remember some of it, but because it was the kind of shop where the customers asked questions and for advice they shift usually went really quickly and it was fun when you teenager would come in and needed ‘kitting out’ for Duke of Edinburgh. You could waste half a shift measuring them up and explaining everything and you got a new big sale at the end too.
I also remember I became VERY fond of chocolate covered Kendal Mint Cake – and having pizza on breaks because the shop was next to Pizza Hut!

This is the actual one we used to sell – and I used to eat a lot!

Maybe not the most exciting first job, but it meant I had some money of my own…which I really enjoyed spending!
What was your first job?

      If you can get it I would recommend giving it a go! You may find it brings on a bit of a sugar coma tho! :)

    Wasn’t it nice when a job was so simple?

      Yes definitely…much better than all the stress involved with my job now that’s for sure!
