I once worked at an ice-cream parlor for one summer and from then on, have learned to respect ice cream places however, it was one of my worst job. The sanitation, the freezer burns and temperature control. One time, all the ice cream melted because the freezer went out on us. It just wasn't nice working in an area where the dairy made a stench that lingers day after day.

The worst job I had was working at this daycare that was a pretty terrible place to work. The management really didn't want to deal with you. They were rude and always had something bad to say about you or someone else. It got old. Needless to say, as soon as I found a better paying job, I left. However I think it's about time I got paid more at my current job!

I've been trying to earn some extra cash with working at a meat factory a couple of summers ago. I worked there for like two months. I hated the process of getting to work (I went for like 5 miles on my bike). The second thing I hated was the job itself. There were pretty gross smells in some rooms and meat meat meat everywhere! Temperatures varied also greatly: one day we worked at a refrigerator, where there was +2..+6 degrees and the other we prepared meat products to be put into oven. In that room temperature was like +40 degrees per Celsius, so it was quite uncomfortable to switch the temperatures of the environment often.

Mine is still the worst one here somehow. I really thought someone else would have had a job similar to mine, requiring some kind physical labour. Not light labour either, I mean real physical labour. The kind that has you sweating all day no matter what the tempurature is. Or employees who are so unsafe and negligent that it's hard NOT to get injured at work. Try harder people!

hello, lilyrayne! i'd been working for over a decade now but i haven't really had the worst job yet. i just remember one time when i was requested to fill in for a class. i was already right in front of the building after travelling for almost a couple of hours by bus. then i was informed that the teacher is showing up. i don't go for any job that i don't like.

The worst job I ever had by far was a telemarketer. People hate telemarketers, and you wouldn't believe the things they say to them. I mean curse you out, 'darn' you to heck kind of things. I'm sure other people who have done that job can relate. By the way, I don't like them either, but I don't curse at them. Anyway, I was 17 and going to college full time, and lived in an off campus apartment. So I needed a job. I didn't have too much experience, and as long as a person has a nice voice and can read and be friendly, they'll hire ya! But after three weeks it just wasn't worth it. I found another job after that, and if I can help it, I will never work at a call center like that again.

I have not had any jobs as bad as the ones already described in this discussionMy worst one was working in the local Tesco a few years back. I was seriously strapped for cash, and this was the only job available, so I just had to suck it up and get on with it. The hours were long, I was regularly treated like dirt by the customers and management considered me a joke, giving me long hours and no respect. After a while, I quit and got a jo at an independent video-game store opposite. I loved it It was quite small, so it never got really packed, and the most frequent customers were regulars who would always engage in a friendly chat whilst I served them. Plus, I got to play all the new releases and even take them home if I wanted to. Obviously, my brother loved me more than ever during this time

hi lilyrayne this was many years back in San Francisco I was not quite 21 and I found this job on a side street, the Nancy Ann Storey Book Doll factory. my job, and I got paid by the doll, was to glue the wigs on these four or five inch tall dolls. the inspector was totally mean and he only approved of maybe half the wigs I glued onto the darned doll's heads. yuck, my fingers would be sore and the glue was always on my skin. it was almost impossible to satisfy this manager from hell. I quit as soon as i found a job as a nurses aide. that was something I loved and knew what I was doing. I was paid a lot better too.
