According to news.com.au, the Vatican newspaper, L`Osservatore Romano, reported that the pope told a group of parishioners at the church of San Cirillo Alessandrino about his earlier jobs.
The pope`s earlier days jobs also included sweeping floors and running laboratory tests, according to a report from the Catholic News Service.
Pope revealed that like most students, who want some money during their university days, he needed to make a little cash on the side.
So he worked in a bar in Buenos Aires and did some moonlighting as a bouncer.
According to the report, but all this was before he saw the light and chose the priesthood - entering the seminary in Villa Devoto.
On March 11, 1958 he joined the novitiate of the Society of Jesus, or the Jesuits.
The rest is history.
