    Default What was the worse job you ever had?

    I've had a couple bad ones,

    Warehouse shipper was brutal because it's a non-growth job you have to concentrate on.

    Youth Specialist, basically a low level detention center bridge between juvi and home release. Being a babysitter to intercity teens that committed a felony.

    Anyway what was yours?

    The last job I ever did for a boss was when I was 17 years old in the summer vacation.

    Ticket checker for F1 - stand in 1 spot for 10 hours a day in boiling July hot sun over a weekend checking tickets. I would be so tired by the end of the workday that I could just close my eyes and sleep would take over my brain while I was still standing.


    Admittedly that isn't the worst job in the world but I never worked for a boss again after that.

    I worked at a call center for one week from home

    Sitting in front of a computer all day was soul crushingly boring, I don't know how anyone can do those types of jobs

    Plus being constantly monitored and micro managed you'd just feel trapped I had to get out of there

    Warehouse work looks terrible, type of job that you go for when you have nothing left and you're desperate

    I worked in a survey firm for 2-3 years. They paid me the minimum wage. I started working in a call center from 2007 to 2016. I stopped working in a call center for almost 3 years because I have my own grocery stores. Started working again in 2020. It's my fourth company now.

    Me and My Dad are planning to star our own Construction Company on July.

    Call center job for a utility company. The calls kept coming and coming and never stopped. Horrible job. The worst thing about call center jobs (and there are many ways that they suck) is that its usually not intelligent, articulate people calling in. Those people usually dont need customer service; they can figure stuff out on their own. You're talking to doorknobs all day. It wears on you.

    The job was unionized and paid pretty well for a call center ($28/hour + overtime) but it wasn't worth it.

    Worked at a flower delivery company and I accidentally got locked in the freezer with all the flowers. Temperature was in the high 30's. Just above freezing so it won't damage the flowers. I was found a couple of hours later and barely had a heartbeat. I was transported to the hospital and was resuscitated there after my heart stopped briefly.

    I worked at a wfh call center too but for a year. You have to have mad discipline and the micromanaging and monitoring is annoying as hell. Plus the pay was terrible, i bet all those wfh jobs have a high turnover rate.
