Whats the worst job you have done?

Recommended Posts

With all the talk of resignations and people starting new jobs I imagine that a fair few of us on here have had a number of jobs. I have actually been quite fortunate where I have actually found most of my jobs ok. Even when I was a postie I didn't mind the early mornings but the rain could be a right bitch especially up here.

 

Whats your worst? Has anyone had a really soul destroying one?

Having to deal with a dead body that had been lying undiscovered for 3 weeks in the summer heat would be one of my less fond memories of undertaking.

I worked on a cooked chicken counter when I was 16. Serving customers and cleaning the hotplate was a fucking nightmare. Was thinking of jacking it but for some strange reason everyone hated doing the dishes so I volunteered myself and ended up just hiding in the back with the radio on for the next 2 years. Much better.

When I done the Princes Trust whilst I was employed with Royal Mail I had to do work experience (which was a it fucking stupid sending me to some stupid job when I actually had one). I went to work in an Artists gallery/workshop where they tried to get me to spend a day picking masking tape off of wooden boards. Spent the morning listening to the radio then went for lunch and never went back. Fuck that I wasn't being there biatch for a week..

Working in the Orange Call Centre in New York (North Tyneside, not NYC). F*cking horrid job, and I can't stand call centres - terrible places.

I worked in the cold storage rooms for Iceland once.

 

In winter you'd go to work in the dark and the cold, work in a warehouse with no windows that was kept between minus 18 and minus 25 all day, then go home in the dark & cold.

 

It was constantly understaffed, so you had to work extra hours and to make matters worse it was in Middlesbrough.

 

I was fucking suicidal.
