||Counselor for Children's Summer Camp Inc., Sand Lake
Michigan. Mainly a camp with auto UAW member's children, with some
children from various Children's homes. Ages 8-13. I worked with
the 8 yr. olds. Fun job, could have made a career of it, but
seasonal and the pay was minimal. Good stories about Skull Face and
the Axe Man. Actually went there as a child with brother and
||Also at the Summer Camp. Offered a lot of freedom
to do what you wanted when not helping prepare food and serve or
clean up. But paid a whopping $28.00 per week.
||Worst job I have ever had. Note: The richer the
golfer, the cheaper the tips. While there were a number of polite
and even cool individuals, I met a lot of rude, obnoxious and self
important people as a caddie.
||At the 52nd Street Deli. Not a bad summer job.
Washed every dish, glass, pot and pan by hand. At least when I do
dishes today, it doesn't seem like much work.
|Computer Lab Monitor
||Easy job. Helping people with the DEC system and
then Unix. Ran a plotter, but really could do my college work, and
send intersystem emails.
||At BGSU's Library, mainly in Government Documents
and some in Serials and reference. Kind of boring, but the
co-workers were interesting. Sam (Coleen), Judith, and Mary "Bear"
and some of the other student workers made it tolerable. It was
interesting that students were not bright enough to man the
reference desk or allowed to answer questions during the day, but
when night fell, our IQ must have shot up 40 points as we were then
more than qualified to do it.
||Crew Member for several years. Mundane job, but for
a few exceptions was a place that was clean enough when the food was
prepared to actually eat the food. Can't speak for any other Taco
|Movie Theater Ticket Taker
||Worked for National Amusements in a Movie Theater
Complex collecting money for tickets. My sister got me the part
time job. Pretty easy, and collected thousands of dollars in a very
short time (30 minutes) on busy nights. Wisely an off duty officer
was normally on hand.
|Toledo Public Schools
||Substitute for many grades and classes for the first
year, then taught Life and Earth Science at Jones Jr. High, then
English at Macomber-Whitney Vocational and Start High School.
|Food Quality Control
||Spent a little time working for Mike Sells Chips in
the quality control department. A job with loud working conditions
when inspecting on the floor. A boring job repeating the same tests
over and over again in the little lab. From my perspective, it was
a very clean place and well run.
||Tutoring students as a Home Instructor for students
with extended illnesses for Toledo Public Schools, and various
Associate Schools of the JVS. Also tutored students in Math and
some in English and Reading on an individual basis (3rd to 12th
|Sylvan Learning Center
||Not a bad part time job. Sometimes the hours, after
teaching all day, really dragged but I was able to help quite a
number of students. A
little expensive for parents to send their kids, but sometimes you
get what you pay for.
||Part time summer job with
Mostly laying brick (paver) driveways, patios, and walkways. Some
trimming and planting, etc. It's a job that will definitely keep you
