My First Job: George Charkalis

Name: George Charkalis
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Owner of Greek Bros. Steakhouse & Oyster Bar
First job: I had a series of first jobs, bussing tables at my uncle's restaurant, working at a car wash and hitchhiking to caddy at the country club.
What it taught me: I learned money doesn't come easy, especially when you have to hitchhike to work. When I was a caddy, I made $5 a bag for 18 holes.
