The first job I ever did in my life  was at the Cafetaria of the University of Mississippi.

I manned the Burger Stand on my own in the evening shift. Worked 20 hours (maximum allowed for international students) a week at the cafetaria while university was in session.

Loved the job and the perks (free food for my entire floor in the dorm, as I worked the last shift and all the leftovers were supposed to be “thrown”)!

I remember my first paycheck was about $54. I was so proud of earning that money.
