The worst job I ever had was working for this guy who scammed people. I didn't know it until a later date when he was convicted of fraud. He bamboozled a lot of people out of money under the ruse that he would get them out of financial debt by paying off their debtors. He kept the money he collected from his clients. This was only about 7 years ago that I had the pleasure of working for this company. I hated lying to the people about them getting resolution to their financial problems.

Telemarketing, back when it was allowed. I don't recall how old I was but I only worked there two days, and then I left because it was just such a racket. Calling people at home during dinnertime and bugging them, that was not my cup of tea at all.

I was an assistant to a crazy manager! I was only 19 yrs old and I didnt know what to do. He was very nice some times and just the pig the other time. He was a friend of my mom and that's how I got the job. Its a Garment Factory and the factory was eternally on strike cos these people dont pay on time. Anyway, I wanted to leave the place so bad, I told him I have to follow a computer course and after about 5 months I left the place.

McDonalds and it was because they made me train the teenagers that didn't care and didn't want to be there.

The worst job I ever held was working at a Corvel Ice Cream shop. I enjoyed it until the owner of the store would come in. He was so weird and would always touch my butt. I hated it, I was 19 and in college at the time, so I couldn't quit because i needed the money.

When I was 16 I got my first job as a waitress in a restaurant. It wasn't horrible, but it was the worst job I have ever had. I smelled like grease every night when I went home and sometimes the customers were mean to me, but overall it could have been much worse.

I don't think I'd enjoy that one either.
