Mensagem: 

I may be wrong ?!?

I worked as a messenger boy even though I didn't have any experience.

Neste caso as duas ações são paralelas ambas no passado. Sendo que em meu raciocínio uma aconteceu antes da outra:

I didn't have any experience - acontecendo primeiro, passaria a ser : I hadn't had any experience.

I worked as a messenger boy - vem depois, fica assim mesmo, simple past.

 

The Past Perfect expresses the idea that something occurred before another action in the past.

I worked as a messenger boy even though I hadn’t had any experience.

I worked as a messenger boy, even though/despite the fact that I hadn't had any training/experience.

 

Emprega-se o pretérito mais-que-perfeito (past perfect) para assinalar um fato passado em relação a outro também no passado(simple past).

Eu trabalhei como mensageiro (pretérito perfeito)

eu não tinha trabalhado/tinha tido qualquer experiencia como mensageiro 'antes'(pretérito mais-que-perfeito)

 

Similar construction:

They didn’t travel,(simple past) even though they had bought the tickets.(past perfect)

Quando o árbitro apitou ( pretérito perfeito ), a bola já tinha/já havia entrado,(pretérito mais-que-perfeito).
