Story:
I played footy, cricket and tennis on Saturdays so my first job was on a Sunday in the local Supermarket that my family was a partner in.

I was able to get to know the supermarket in side out. Placing orders, receiving orders, setting up grocery displays, ordering and displaying the fresh produce, slicing meat in the deli and the most important skill customer service.

Learning, to turn up on time and work with supervisors and other staff and solve the odd problem that often involved technology (EFTPOS!!) was a great foundation for my future working life.
