There are many jobs ,that I would never want .One is ,I would not want to clean an animals cage at the zoo.I think I would be grossed out,especially when I get to the elephant's cage.I couldn't handle being a surgeon either,I couldn't cut through someone's skin,I get grossed out very easily.How about you?Which job wouldn't you want to do and why?

I have done and would never want to do again the job of telemarketer. Interrupting people at dinner, during fights, during loving times. Getting an old, old lonely lady to answer her phone, breathless from hurrying because it might finally be someone calling her to talk and hearing the disappointment in her voice. Trying to sell people crappy stuff that they don't need. Telemarketers are home invaders, no better than punks that bust through your door. I will never, ever do that again even if I am starving. I'd rather scrounge through garbage cans for something to eat if I were starving than do that job again!

hi dragon once just once I tried selling the Los Angeles times as a telemarketer. my ears still ring thinking about the lady who screamed at me, the times is a dirty filthy rag, and you are disgusting bothering me with that horrid paper. bang. down went the receiver. and the next call I made got, the times, you idiot, trying to sell me , they are never on time, and you threw the paper through my window,broke the glass, how dare you call me bang down went the receiver. I made four dollars that week, and I quit. My husband made fifty dollars. go figure.

LOL!! Oh, you poor thing! It's a thankless job, to be sure, especially when your product is lousy. I always say if I want something I'll go out and look for it, don't call me trying to sell me something. To the telemarketers, I tell them they are invading my house and stealing my time and if they don't take me off their list I will turn them into the Feds because I'm on the do not call list. I'm not very nice to them.

I think telemarketing is a hard job.I get very annoyed when they call me.What I do now when they call is I set the smoke alarm off up to the phone.It makes them never want to call again.I don't have the nerve to call people and interupt them.Most people don't even listen to a telemarketer.

I dont want to be selling anything again in my entire life. Never ever again. I hate convincing people to buy stuff. Its undeniable that there always a great concern about revenue, how to improve it or modify this and that.. Ugh! I hate doing that on my previous job. Plus managers on your back trying to pressure you to hit target. Maybe its just not my cup of coffee so i bail out. lol.

Pardon me for butting in, but selling is becoming part of every service job. I could get a job as a bank teller but they are required to harass their depositors with products and they have a quota they must meet every month. They can't just help the customers they have to sell them things. I could have a bank teller job right now if I would sell crap!

I've tried being a sales person and I didn't make one sale.People aren't interested in anything one has to go around selling.Most people want the best deal with anything they want,and they just go to Wal Mart or something.

I'm sure there are too many jobs that I can't do that I would never want to try to do. But the thing that I can do that I would never do, would be working at call center or anything that has to do with telemarketing. Oh gosh, it just not something I would be doing! I don't want my butt be burning for eight freaking hours doing and taking calls, that mostly you get concerns and complaints.. For me it's just the worst job ever...

That would be my nightmare job.I wouldn't want to make out going calls bothering people,and the in coming calls would most likely to complainers.Now I think this is the worst job ever.

I don't think I'd mind being a zookeeper- even if it involved cleaning out animal enclosures. I love animals soooo much, an I was always the one to clean up after pets when I was growing up. But I do not think I could be a surgeon, or doctor, either- THAT (all that medical, bodily stuff) I find gross. I also never want to work in some cubicles office 9-5; its one of my worst nightmares.

Because in my country in both profession they take money or brief from the people. They always break the government rule and help people who wants to break the rule with the power of money.

I know police work is hard.I wouldn't want that job.Not all of the police are bad ,but there are some that will do that,help someone else get away with something for money.You're right.

I know what job you mean,that would be working in a morgue.They call it a morgue ,but I don't know what you'd call a person that has the job.That's something else I would not want to do either.It would make me sick and creep me out.

hi java I would never want to be a housekeeper as I hate , hate, hate the job of cleaning the toilet and the bathroom. nor would I want to be a dishwasher in a restaurant with a zillion dishes to wash all the time. I would love being a surgeon or a doctor , as I wor ked in the medical field for years and blood and guts do not really bother me at all. But I hate washing dishes and cleaning bathrooms. Also I would never be a teacher as I cannot fathom tryiing to keep a whole roomful of kids in control specially when so many pride themselves on how much they hate school and books. and telemarketing would have me in tears as people would scream at me and slam down the receiver. I would hate trying to sell something to someone who doesnt want it and doesnt like telemarketers at all.

I think they 're both bad jobs.It's hard to sell to people,especially over the phone because they're busy yelling at you over bothering them.I used to clean a factory and I hated to do the toilets,because I thought how everyone sits their butt on them and goes.The bathroom always smelled bad,the people were gross about using it.

I would never want work as cleaner outdoors.Because the work condition is bad,you will work all day whether in bright sunlight or in rain,you will also breathe in dust.A few years passed, you will become older and the skin will become coarse.It is terrible!

As I am a vegetarian I think it would have to be working in a abetoir killing the animals (in fact doing naything there, even the paperwork lol). I just couldnt brin myself to do it. Other than that probably something like cleaning the streets. I dont think I could work as a nurse or in a residential home etc because I would find it embarrassing to bath people and clena up if they had an accident. Im funny with anything like that.

As far as I am concenred, I think I will not say absolutely that I will not do that job or be that kind of worker. As we all know that we are in a very competitive society which we still need live on ourr feet. We need to eat everyday,We have to have a comfortable dailylife.So if the job is a little OK, I think I will take it.

To be an acountant,I would never want.Well,I'm not sensitive to the number and bothering about calculated how much I have spent and how many left.To be honest,I never don't know how much money in my own pocket.And the telemarketers have mentioned above,I have done for a while.It's my first job after graduated,but I hate it.My major is logistics managment,I have no any experience about that.So,in order to find a job as soon as possible,I had to do it.I would never ever done the telemarketers.
