I imagine most college students who don't go away to college work in retail until they graduate. I did so even after I graduated but realized that I had to grow up. I was simply having too much fun working at Blockbuster and hated leaving.

Never worked retail. But I did work at the reserve desk at my college library.

Worked for my dad at the building supply company he ran when I was 14-16
Edwards supermarket (now stop and shop) from 16-19
Worked in banking since. I did briefly have two second jobs in my early to mid 20's at kohls (for a month) and AT&T (less than six months).

The Best Buy that I worked at was 5 minutes from campus. It was just one giant orgy (that I wasn't invited to).

Working in a supermarket, in my experience anyway, was pretty similar to the movie "Go". Lots of drugs, booze, chicks, sexy time, house parties followed by absurd adventures where people wind up in the hospital.

If you want easy access to all sorts of drugs, work at a pizza place (or befriend someone who does)

the Lee's in Newtown was a drug haven forever. Those guys made weed smoking the #1 most required job skill.

I never worked retail. I applied a few times but never ended up working in any of the places because I got some other crappy job. I mostly worked at my father's printing business in West Philly.

I worked retail- assistant manager at a Vitamin World store during my last year of seminary. I started in August, they closed the store in October. Long run there.

I was horrible at the job, cause I wouldn't lie to get people to buy stuff they didn't need.

Record Town, Saturday Matinee, The Wall - a lot of free stuff, especially when i was the only ahem, suburban, working at our store at the gallery mall on market. i'll have to see if i can find my pic of busta rhymes and our staff. it's kind of hilarious.

unloaded trucks at Sears for a summer. so much fun- work for an hour in the morning, play hockey all afternoon while waiting for delivery calls.
