What were some of your past jobs?  Places you have worked for?  Your responsibilities?  Why you left?  Volunteered or paid.

Grocery store packer. You unload stuff, you pack them on the shelves. Pay was awesome, something like $25 an hour because you work the graveyard shift. I did it during university days for 3 to 6 hours/week.

  Flyers. I gave out flyers like crazy for a week and got $100 for my sweat.

  Teaching at school. No pay but you get credit. Kinda sucks but hey, at least you're getting something towards your degree.

A million and one different volunteer jobs.  Notable: accounting in a non-profit birth control clinic, arena janitor for a youth conference.
 
 Paid jobs:
 babysitting
 delivering phone books
 numerous restaurants and bars
 pub manager
 wrote building code  (unfortunate- because I have piss-poor drafting skills, can't read plans very well, and can't build anything...but let me tell you, my calculations were bang on!)
 office jobs in research, accounting, admin

 helped handicapped/mentally disabled kids/adults for a week at camp.

In high school I had to do 30-60hrs of community service a year to graduate. Since I never was able to find a job, ever, I just did a 5hr MWF shift at a local hospital for about 2 years. I think I did somewhere around 1,000hrs. Had a good time, just ended up talking to the other retirees who were working there, pushing people around in wheel chairs.
 Memorable highlights: delivered santa claus touqes for the new borns a couple days before Christmas, heard a couple babies being born while delivering a package, watched open heart surgery, carried a guy right from the open heart surgery table to his room with other nurses, those are the happy times.

The tough times were when I had to try and deliver a gift to an elderly woman who was terminally ill and dilvering flowers to a woman who had cancer and later I was told was dying who was in her late 30s/40s, she couldn't stop crying. That and going to the children's cancer ward was probably the worst days. Only got through those days by talking to the other helpers all who had strokes and heart attacks. One of the guys who was an engineer who help lay plans for the hospital, went into a coma for months, nobody expeted him to live through that, so whenever those tough days happened, I talked to him.

Met the heads of the hospital, I know all there is to know about colonoscopies. I ended up knowing everyone on a first name basis that when I went in for surgery or something nurses would remember me. lol

newspapers for 3 years, saw a lot of drunks,crimes, deer, and was involved in too many accidents due to icy roads. Best story, brakes failed going down a hill, too icey, slammed into a mail box. AAA said go talk to the person about their mailbox. So, 6am some rich wall street guy comes out, lets me in his house, he's in boxers and a tshirt. He told me he cared more about his 5 dollar mailbox.

randomly have done some farm stuff since about 13.

welder helper at a warehouse - walked around with firehose to make sure welders sparks were put out. This was my high school job. Paid great and not a ton of hours.

  After uni, I was an office robot slave...sucked!

  Those were my past jobs.

HA! I love that movie!!

  I turned into Peter, but not 100%. Instead of gutting fish on important papers, I became my own boss and started charging out the rate the company used to charge me out to clients, before paying me only a fraction.

  It wasn't just that. I just hated the whole office politics.

I don't blame you at all. Hopefully with my career, I can take a job in a rural mountainous area, would make the job seem less boring going to work. lol
