  • Have had a couple.
    Fastfood- people treat you like the scum of the earth.Also, some of the other employees are pretty nasty.
    Customer Service call center- I was cussed out 3-4 times a day at least for things I had no control over.
    Hotel maid service-Even at expensive hotels people are disgusting!

  • I was a kennel manager for a few years. Not only was the work physically demanding and never-ending, one of the other employees tried to poison me at one point, the owner would never get the place fumigated for roaches and it really needed it, the owner went and set a bunch of surplus hamsters loose and they ended up breeding and invading the restaurant next door, and I was eventually fired for refusing to participate in the owner's pyramid scheme.

  • Oh I forgot buser at a buffet resturant. Some peoples eatting habbits are gross. Worset was the older male customers. The ones who would say "if you clean under my table I'll give you an extra tip" or " you must stuff your tips in your bra" and "if only you were wearing a skirt( while bent cleaning a table)". I told the owner and he would just tell me to ignore them. He always chose customers over his employees.
