What job do you temps enjoy the most, if you "ever" temp worked,

With all the full time competition and big out-doing each other for the best car, the best house, and all the perfect lives, just wishing and looking at the good times of those temp days, before children, and expenses.
Did you like the office temp, manufacturing temp, or the food service, or some other specific fill in job?

  • I did work as an office temp in the summers while I was in college - and that's actually how I got my first full time permanent job!

  • I worked as a temp one time when I was pregnant with my first child and got laid off. I had an assignment as a receptionist for 6 weeks while the regular receptionist was on maternity leave herself. It wasn't my favorite thing to do because I hate answering phones, however they hired me directly about 4 months after my assignment was over. I had a better position with better pay, and I've now been with them 3.5 years and have been promoted twice so I count my blessings everyday that I decided to take that temp job and endured answering phones for 6 weeks.

  • I did office temp for a while because I had to pay the bills. It was horrible, mostly mind numbing jobs with no prospect of being hired in by the company and little pay.
