Name: Mark Talley
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Owner of TNT Audio & Security
First job: I had a temporary day job assisting with an 18-wheeler beer truck that turned over on its side. They needed workers to unload it.
What it taught me: I learned I needed to get a better job because temporary ones don't cut it. Also, many of the people out there working loaded up cases of beer to take home with them. They weren't supposed to. I learned that if you let people take advantage of you, they will.
