What is the worst job that you have had?

I was a stylist assistant in a trendy salon, and those rich customers were the worst people in the world, the poor customers in the so so salons were the nicest. Also, I have worked as a cashier in a grocery store, and 1 out of 2 people were major jerks.

  • It's a toss up...I had a job for one day once calling people to see if the wante to take a radio survery. Terrible. The other was when I worked at Sam's Club for about 2 yrs. Some of those customers were beyond ridiculous!

  • My sons call the Big Lots stores.....Big Lots of Crap....Sorry...not related to the question - I just thought it was funny ; )

    My worst job was working in the clothing section at Target. I worked there for Christmas money about 11 years ago. I hated straightening all the clothes that people just threw around. There were some messy inconsiderate people out there. I'll never do that again.

  • It's a toss up between detasseling corn and calling people out of the phone book to see if they wanted to let a Kirby vacuum salesman into their house for a free demo and pushy salespitch. I only did both for about three weeks.

  • Lol I would have to say waitressing was by far the worst job I ever had. I only did it in high school...I can't complain about the money, but people are insane and rude!!! I can't say that I'd never do it again (just because if it ever came down to me needing money in a hurry with children, it would be a definite possibility) but WOW I would seriously hate it!!!

  • A line cook at Zaxby's.

    The owner was a huge asshole. I got paid $6.00 an hour. I only worked there a month, I quit after being sexually harassed by a male co-worker.
