Whats been your worst job

So for those of you who have had a job (real ones - BG1 take note), whats been your worst job?

For me it has to have been on a production line for a while (a week if I'm being honest - how I lasted that long is beyond me lol). My job was to screw the screws into the pins that go into plugs. You know the screws that you tighten to attach the wires, I had to put them in by hand!
Mind someone near me had the exciting job of tying a knot into a bit of string. They were used for the pull cords for bathroon lights!

Anyone beat that for extremely boring crap jobs?

job as a supervisor in a restaurant/bar owner lived upstairs, lasted 3 days, what I didn't realise at the interview was he would then spend the next 3 days at the bar getting drunk and ogling, finally when he 'slapped' my behind and I did the same to his face I thought it best I walked lol

I had a temp data entry job checking approx 20,000 folders and filling out a tick sheet of what was/wasn't in them, stapling the tick sheet on the inside cover. Then I had to put the sheets in order in all folders. Then I had to find what was missing and put that in. Then I had to enter it all onto a computer system. Each bit had to be done separately, as they never told me what I had to do next; tick sheet took about two weeks, then sorting them took a month, then entering them took even longer. They didn't even keep me on...

2 days packing on a production line in a warehouse, hey i gave it a chance! lol

Factory/Quality/Logistics Manager in an automotive manufacturing facility, hated all the stress of managing 50 staff and having to be the most responsible person on-site.

Currently have a temp job working as an operator on the production line in a spring water bottling facility but strangely loving it :{

I sit in a box and lift a barrier to let people in / out of the campsite. Can't read or anything as I have to check that the car passes, which dangle from the rear view mirror, match their registration. I do two four hour shifts. been doing it for two years now...

My Worse was working as a waitress in butlins as a 2 week temp job during summer holidays when I was 15! Horrible horrible place!
Then a 1 day temp Job (should of been 1 week, but I spent most of my time upset for that 1 day) It was in a meat factory, I was teamed up with 2 sexist pigs of men and I hated every min, the place turned my tummy so I never went back.

Working in a cold store (temps of 0 to -30) counting boxes (so not moving a lot). 12 hour shifts with a 10 minute break every 2 hours. Only stuck it for a week, I'd lost contact with bits of my anatomy by then. . .

lol, one of those agency jobs I did when I was 16, you go to a pick up point in town at about 10pm and get on a mini bus full of complete freaks or rather windows lickers, go to a factory and get designated a job.............mine was to pat florette salad bags to ensure they were air tight for 9 hours..........or if I was really lucky I got to wear a chainmail glove and quarter cabbages on a conveyor belt..........long

Elephant circumciser - lousy pay, but the tips were big

Actually, working in a restaurant for 4 hours a night, seven days a week, for £10 (this was in the Eighties). Rude customers, very small tips (or, in most cases, none at all) - did it for the Summer hols to pay for driving lessons. And through it all I smiled & was nice to the customers, even when they left no tip, which is why I appreciate waiters/waitresses now.

First ever paid job was to check the traps for weasels at the pheasant farm, and If I found one, I had to nail it to the fence "to warn the other weasels" or in reality show the landowner that the gamekeeper was doing his job.

Worst job was a cardboard box factory, assembling boxs, I lasted a week before I lost the will to live.
#22
My second ever job, cold calling selling till rolls. I had to phone people, and try to convince them to buy their till rolls from us. Most people really don't care about saving a few pence on such trivial things and given that you have to learn approximately seven billion different types (sizes, paper thickness, thermal paper, all sorts), it's the sort of soul sucking job that you quickly realise you wont be making a career out of.

Many years ago working as a glorified roadie for my brothers club singing group.

Travelling hours and setting up equipment in smoky stinking social clubs while my brother and his then girlfriend (other person in the group) would sit in the 'dressing room' (usually a storage room) doing vocal exercises. I would set up the massive speakers, tape down wires, test all the equipment and then manage the sound desk for the whole night. For all this I would come home stinking of smoke and get a token twenty for travel costs (out of the £200 they got paid) for which I would get a bitter look from his sour faced ex as if I was undeserving of anything.

The things we do for family.

What sort of tip does an elephant leave?

My first job... mushroom picking at £1.84 an hour.
Spending your weekends picking through dirt in hot dark tents is not a pleasant way to spend your time off school.

working in a factory for seven years. sort of job you'd look at the clock after 10 mins and think, when the hell is my tea break.

Total respect for factory workers, even if some of them are mentally challenged (they need to be!).

Being on sluice duty during training, and taking out and cleaning peoples false teeth, esp when they'd been eating custard

My brother said Morrisons was bad too, I loved my time at Tesco. I guess it's all down to what Manager you get. I once punched another guy in the face and my manager stood by me lol so I guess he was cool.

i would rather join the army than do most of the jobs listed in this thread X)

paper round for me when i was 14, was a cheap freebie paper, the pay wasnt bad but getting the papers delivered to me, then the leaflets to put in them a day later was not fun, especially if you got 9 leaflets to put into each paper in a round of 200 lol

would join the army before doing that again

I worked for a couple of weeks in a plant that recycled car tyres. I used a large electric knife and wore chain-mail! I used to go home on the bus smelling of rubber, the smell lingered for days after I had finished.

For a while my mates used to call the Durex Man!
