Your Worst Job – Ever?

Some of you said that what didn’t kill you, made you strong or a better person. Others said, “Despite the fact that this was no doubt a character-building experience, if I had it to do over again, I’d leave after the first day, without giving notice.” And, some of you did leave, as fast as you could get out of there on your first break – if there was a break. No break? You escaped when you visited the restroom.

Little was I prepared for the life time of bad job experiences readers would share when I asked this question: What Was Your Worst Job – Ever?

Think about it. What do you do when a chef throws a hot iron pan at your head? How would you manage to work with crass, crude owners who demeaned your customers? How about working in an environment in which the customer was always wrong?

How would you handle a job that required you to clean new born chickens, ID the sex of nasty-looking dung beatles, or collect cattle ticks? How did you manage when your job required you to work knee deep in blood all day? Or, you worked in a trim shop clipping plastic from pieces with requirements so exacting, that they created 100% employee turnover – a week?

In reminiscing about your worst job ever, some of you shared your laughter and many of you shared your tears and even, your anger. Take a look as readers share their worst jobs – ever.

Worst jobs either killed us or made us better people. For sure, they played a serious role in determinimg our future occupations, aspirations, goals, education, and dreams.

What was your worst job – ever?
