View Full Version : Life What's the shittiest job you've ever had?

I know we're all millionaires here on ChiefsPlanet, and all of us have known nothing but success. It's astonishing how concentrated the professional success is on this website, it's basically Ladders.com Version 2.0, only we're all employed and we all are responsible for million dollar clients.

In fact, to remember the shit job you had to hold down at some point growing up, you probably have to take a long lunch today to visit a hypnotist for memory retrieval. Sure it costs more, but it's worth it. You have the money to burn.

So what did you do?

I worked a few really shitty jobs, but painting tennis courts was probably the worst. I did that when I was 17 years old for a pretty decent company, but it was shit work, dude. Jackhammering and laying down base and squeegee-ing paint for either the city of Springfield or Topeka (worst town evar, amiright?) or Broken Arrow or just some asshole's backyard.

Worst job evar.

How about you?

EDITED TO ADD: frankotank just PM'd me requesting that I declare him the winner of this thread for literally shoveling shit.

And, while this is not a competition, he wins and you all lose. Good day.

When I was a kid I'd always hang out with the Hotel Manager at the hotel we lived in and did some side jobs, like wash the towels and sub for house maids when they were no shows.

However the shittiest job I'd do was clean the rooms at night after people would use the room for quickies so that way he could rent it again. Got 20 bucks a room so at 12 years old I was making good money.

Room always smelled like pussy...or cock...couldn't tell the difference at the time....

Working at the 1/2 Price Store in the toy department for a summer in high school. All these freakin little kids paying with shit and leaving it all over the place. It was walmart before there was walmart. I used to go in the back door of the grocery store next door, steal something to eat from the back, then go back to the 1/2 Price Store and hide in the back room and eat and read fishing and hunting magazines. Effin hated that place. $3.35 per hour baby

I've had the opportunity to do some jobs I didn't really appreciate and thought were shitty at the time, but in all honesty might not be that shitty. In no particular order:

1. Laying carpet (heh)
2. Blowing insulation in a billion year old church's attic.
3. Landscaping Specialist - the nice way of saying yard bitch. I worked over at Ft. Riley for a summer with a contractor doing the suckiest of suck lawn work (pulling a **** ton of weeds, picking up limbs, raking leaves, etc. etc.). This job truly did suck. I was stuck out in the 100+ degree heat with long pants on and gloves, doing shit I hated everyday. Makes me appreciate my cushy office job now.
4. Painted a few houses one summer while in high school. Wasn't very fun, and the pay (for some reason) sucked.
5. This one is kinda lame, but for a few months I worked at a "Market Research" center, i.e. we made calls all evening asking people for surveys. It was so damn monotonous, as we had to read everything verbatim every time. You get tired of talking after awhile.

I was a furniture delivery guy for 1 day in the summer between high school and college. It was super hot (the truck had no A/C), the pay was crappy, and we had to deliver a couch to the nastiest old cat lady house ever. You could smell the house FROM OUTSIDE! Also, the douchehole truck driver wouldn't stop so I could get some water or lunch so I really felt like crap at the end of the day.

My eye opener was the summer I graduated high school and got a job at the Walton Foundry in Iola, a place that no longer exists so I feel free to mention them by name.
Worked in the grinder room right next to the smelting room, those guys had it even worse. Worked through the summer in +120* shop, 56 hour weeks mandatory, would come home covered from head to toe in grinder dust, nothing you wore would prevent it from seeping through your clothes, and with knuckles so swollen I couldn’t make a fist if I had too. All this fun and games for $5.50/hr, which was crapping in the tall cotton back in ’85.
I worked there a little over a month and cut my right knee with an angle grinder. It sucked but we cleaned it up, bandaged it and I went back to work. Following month I cut me left knee with a 6” side grinder and that was the last day I ever worked there. Oh I went to the doctor where they had to pick the dead flesh out of a 2”X2” square open wound you could see bits of muscle bubbling out of. Doctor even tried to bill me after the Foundry tried to get out of paying the doctors bill. Best friend’s dad was the County Prosecutor at the time so I went to him with the doctor’s bill. He gave them a call telling them to leave me alone and I never heard from them again.

I lived on a farm and shoveled horse crap, threw hay, got up in the winter before school to feed the animals, etc. for nothing, basically. But the worst job I had was Enterprise Rent a Car right outside Washington DC.

I'd go into an office inside a Caddy dealer or Lexus dealer by myself and see 45 reservations all before 9:00 AM and I would have 5 cars. No exaggeration. I would just wait and hope new cars kept being returned. Even when they did they'd be dirty or empty on gas. And all the customers had been lied to by salespeople who told them they get Caddy or Lexus loaners, so they'd be even more pissed when they got a Neon.
I'd sit there 5 feet from a bunch of people who were pissed about waiting, and even when they got the car it would be almost empty on gas and a Neon.
And after that you'd be expected to sell them insurance.
It was a nightmare every day. I would start dreading it Saturday night.

I was the "helper" on a three man termite team. I can still feel bugs crawling all over me from the little holes I would have to crawl into. I think I did that a few summers. If it wasn't for the two other guys being fun to hang around with I would have been gone after the first couple of weeks. I think I was 19 or 20 at the time and they would buy beer at the end of the day and take it back to shop and drink it with me. I would sit and tell them about all the pussy I was chasing and they would love the stories.

I also worked doing power lines too. The money was great but I hated that job. I think I only did it a few months. I quit the day some foreman called me every name in the book because some other asshole backed into his new truck. He said I should have been watching him even though nobody said "Hey, direct this guy backing up". I just walked off the job and said fuck it.

Almost as bad was they changed it from a buffet to a steak house and I thought awesome I now have a cushy job with about 1/3rd of the plates to wash.

They then proceeded to move me from dishwasher to being in charge of this giant, and I mean huge, salad bar. How anybody thought that was a good promotional step is beyond me.

Anyway, to make a long story short, never put a pissed off 17 year old in charge of opening and closing down a giant salad bar. I did that for about 2 months and then quit. I am surprised I will eat at salad bars to this day.

Heh, I did that one in high school for a few months. I quit when nobody showed up but one waitress and she left early. I was the ONLY person in the restaurant. I called up two buddies of mine, we made a shit ton of pizza's. Closed, cleaned up, and then drank beer from the tap and played astroids. I never went back

I was the "helper" on a three man termite team. I can still feel bugs crawling all over me from the little holes I would have to crawl into. I think I did that a few summers. If it wasn't for the two other guys being fun to hang around with I would have been gone after the first couple of weeks. I think I was 19 or 20 at the time and they would buy beer at the end of the day and take it back to shop and drink it with me. I would sit and tell them about all the pussy I was chasing and they would love the stories.

I also worked doing power lines too. The money was great but I hated that job. I think I only did it a few months. I quit the day some foreman called me every name in the book because some other asshole backed into his new truck. He said I should have been watching him even though nobody said "Hey, direct this guy backing up". I just walked off the job and said **** it.

I literally snorted snot reading that first part. Holy (pun intended) shit was that funny. I'm gonna use that someday. "more tired than the helper on a 3 man termite team"

I landed a job at a factory when I was 20 years old. My first day they sat me down behind a machine that opened up cotter pins. Or splittin' pins as they called it. Simple enough job, except you had to do 640 pins an hour. So, not much time for slacking. A few hours into my shift, a mentally challenge girl arrived. She takes a seat at the pin splitter right beside. It dawns on me, I'm doing the same job as a mentally challenged person. At break, she inhales a piece of birthday cake. 15 minutes later, she is throwing up on me.

I enrolled in college the next day.

You had to put all the dressings, toppings, pudding etc....into individual containers each night and put them in a cooler. You were supposed to use clean containers every day and evening but I was the ONLY person working this massive thing.

I started putting foil or plastic lids directly onto the containers that went into the salad bar itself and putting those in the cooler. The next morning take them out and put them back on the salad bar.

I never did anything intentionally nasty involving body fluids or anything like that but it wasn't the most hygienic salad bar.

there was no way one person could do the job correctly and they refused to give me any help.

This was one of the poorest run most slave driven places I have ever seen and it was owned by a preacher of all things.

I was working about 45 hours a week and going to HS. Eventually I said screw it when they wouldn't cut my hours. It was my senior year, time to have some fun.

I haven't had any really shit jobs. My least favorite was the summer internship with the Oregon DOT. The office work (plotting survey points on a map) was extremely boring. I also spent a few weeks on a survey crew, cutting through blackberry bushes. The worst part of the survey crew, though, was flagging on a major highway. It's amazing I didn't get run over. :eek: People are assholes.

I hated my time in the Army National Guard and dreaded those weekends.

Unlike some people, I enjoyed my dishwashing job. It was a small family run restaurant that was half pizza place, half regular restaurant. The only part I didn't like was being pulled in to make pizzas when it got busy, partly because I didn't like doing it and partly because I knew the dishes were piling up while I wasn't back there.

I also didn't like my job as a car stereo installer. It was uncomfortable and was also very easy to make an expensive mistake so there was a fair amount of stress for what amounted to a minimum wage job.

I've never worked a job I really hated, but I've worked some hard jobs. Basically anything outside in the summertime is pretty tough. Among those I've done:

1) Detassling corn in Iowa.
2) Framing houses in Arkansas (including roofing, which is the worst in summertime).
3) Building above ground pools (which included excavating, often by hand, a pad for them. No easy task in the rocky soil of the Ozarks).

Even though those jobs were hard as hell, there was something intensely enjoyable about coming home dog-tired at the end of the day knowing I'd worked my ass off. I couldn't do it for all my life, but they were great experiences between stints in education.

I've worked as a janitor, light construction worker, grocery night stocker and cashier, warehouse packing and shipping, as well as other jobs.

The worst job was cleaning up after a Royals game back when I was in college. I figured, catch the end of a ball game and start sweeping. This was back in the early '90's so there was still the illusion that the team was good and the stands were still packed. Packed stands = lots 'o garbage.

First someone would come through with a hose and wash all of the garbage down the stairs and we'd have to go in with brooms and scrapers to get the gum up and the nut shells plastered down with beer. After a while I had popped blisters, but still had to pick up the beer/pop/water saturated garbage. Nothing like a few million germs in an open wound. My shoes got soaked in this concoction as well to the point that they were ruined and had to be thrown away. A lot of the people I worked with made "The People of WalMart" seem sophisticated.

One night was more than enough for me. I've cleaned crap off of bathroom floors, dealt with spoiled food, dealt with garbage balers, and sweated my ass off in other jobs, but nothing fouled me out more than that one night.

Awful smell of pig shit the whole time you are there. Fucking things squeel all the damn time. Heat checking all the sows is nasty. You either get to walk the boar in between the isles where the feed drops and all the sows get to smell him to see if their pussies swell up or not. If you are walking the boar he stops to eat the leftover feed, stops and lays down, or on occasion gets pissed and turns around and tries to run you over after kicking him in his eggplant sized nuts because the SOB won't keep moving forward. On the other hand you can let someone else walk the boar and check the sows twats to see if they are ready to breed or not. Most of the time you have to wipe the poop away from their twats cause they really are fucking pigs. Then when you get to artificially inseminate them you jam a long plastic rod up a bit and then down their twat canal and wait for her to drink the bag of boar jizz. You can't squeeze it you have to wait for her pig twat parts to suck it down.

Sometimes their intestines come out their assholes. It's gross, like someone jammed a curling iron up their butt and the starfish swells up the size of a softball. You can tie a rubber band around it sometimes and it will fall off. Atleast that's what some dude i worked with did. Other times if it gets bad they just kill the damn thing.

Probably the worst is power washing the slots and walls. They stand on concrete slots and their piss and shit drops down in a pit below. That smell rises and stays their with the fresh shit and piss that doesn't slip through the cracks.

Not to mention this damn place i worked at didn't pay overtime. It's been years so i don't remeber how they got out of that one butt they did.

Sure didn't make you want to go home and grill some pork chops while working there. However it was a job. And those are sometimes hard to come by.

Hauling 80 pound square bale hay from the field to a HUGE barn (stacked 45 high). I was the smallest at 12 years old, so I got the honor of climbing to the top where it was hot as hell itself and stacking thousands of bales for a great big whopping 2 cents per bale.

Then landscaping had to be the second worst where I literally used a pick and shovel to do everything the lazy fucker on the tractor wouldn't do because it required physical effort. We worked w/o breaks and only lunch as a break starting at 7 AM and working till it was too dark to see 7 days a week.

I've had many unpleasant jobs and some good jobs that had many unpleasant tasks.

I was raised on a farm, so scooping corn, manure, pulling baby pigs with your arm, hay racks, hay mows in the summer, mowing hay on open air tractors through swarms of angry bees were part of the deal, but overall, I enjoyed and still do aspects of farming. It's honest and you get some accomplishment.

I started traveling with an auto crusher when I was 14 and working in junk yards. Stuffing iron into cars, often standing in inches of oil, antifreeze, gas(environmental aspects of that have changed a lot over the years and this isn't part of it) removing and stacking tires....getting into bees and snakes regularly was part of it. I once saw a door ripped off of a cadillac fall from about 8-10' and hit a guy in the head/face....it was dangerous work, but the boss was awesome and treated me very well. The worst part of that job was running a Tire bender and loading stacks of old tires into semi trailers.

I did freelance artwork in college and after. The gimmick was that it was on cow/bull/buffalo skulls. Early on, I cut the heads off of many animals that had been dead for a few weeks with a hand saw...in the summer. terrible.

I worked many years helping with rental houses. Cleaning out shitholes destroyed by ditchpig welfare people and unclogging granny rag-condom plugged sewers with bailing wire was pretty shitty.

Flag man on road construction was hot and boring. Terrible boring.

in 93 I took a construction job, hand digging down below the footings around an entire school that had back filled over the winter before it was water proofed. ever dig a 5' hole in wet clay?

I've done a lot of nasty jobs, and every one of them prepared me for success in a non-nasty job, and help me appreciate the good things about the job I have now.

They then proceeded to move me from dishwasher to being in charge of this giant, and I mean huge, salad bar. How anybody thought that was a good promotional step is beyond me.

Anyway, to make a long story short, never put a pissed off 17 year old in charge of opening and closing down a giant salad bar. I did that for about 2 months and then quit. I am surprised I will eat at salad bars to this day.

First real job, mid to late 80s, working the bottle return counter at a liquor store. Massachusetts instituted a bottle bill, and you got a nickel for each can or bottle. So, of course, we got a lot of low-class poor, or outright homeless, bringing in dirty disgusting cans and bottles they found. Nothing like moldy stinky beer bottles with beer and cigarettes still floating in them... or, better yet, cockroaches running around in the cases. Nothing like having to turn down your cuffs on your sleeves to make sure baby roaches weren't hitchhiking home with you.

It was a GREAT job overall, but one detail SU-HUH-HUH-HUH-HUH-ucked.

Worked grounds crew for a country club. But once a month or so, instead of riding big fairway mowers or interesting greens mowers, it was your turn to weedeat sandtraps. Those two words just don't go together, weedeater and sand, deep of the summer and your Hobbsian choice was [insulated] long pants in 100 degree weather or mounting welts from sand striking your shins at 100 mph. In order to avoid heat stroke you were constrained to contemplate the equivalent to striking your shins with canes for 8 hours on end. The heat stroke version wasn't pain-free either.

Got up every morning at 5am and hauled hay/feed to the livestock. That was the start of the day. Started doin that at 8 years old. Add to that everything else that had to be done and makin 50c a month. Ya it sucked. But those things have a way of forming a habit in your soul.

Nothing stinks worse in the world than going through Rendering at a beef packing plant.

I was in high school and got this job at a turkey farm. had no idea what to expect. I show up and the guy takes me to a shed and hands me a shovel. I was being paid to literally shovel shit onto a trailer! by far the worst job ever. I shoveled until he was out of sight and jumped in my car and got the hell out of there! never went back. I leave this one off of my resume...

I do not know why you would leave this off your resume. That experience could help you get a nice job in politics.

Really?

About every kid who has ever lived on a farm shoveled enough shit to fill Investco field. You win nothing.


I've scooped human poo out of a bathtub in a rental house.

animal doodie is nasty. people doodie is nasty too.

but probably the most ****ing pig butt nasty assed smell was when i was a mechanics helper and got to do the oil change and lube job on the local garbage truck. Summer job to earn some extra cash a steamy hot dog days of august day. Crawling under that thing on the creeper and greasing all 20 or so grease fittings on that thing and not puking all over myself was quite the accomplishment. Sort of like a respect thing in the shop. They could power wash it...but what fun would that be. Have the snot nosed young buck do it as it is. Power washing it would stink up the shop.

Under that truck i realized why garbage man have no teef. It was all sorts of rotted dead decaying trash. It was like a dead skunks pussy with a bucket of dead rotting fish wrapped up in a dirty babies diaper like some sort of burrito that was ate by a nasty hyena type creature and farted into my face. Some solid form, some liquid, and the gassy smell was constant hours afterwards. If i was smart i would have hired someone to drive my pickup through the drive thru wash while i sat in the back and scrubbed with a bar of soap.

Ooooh, that reminds me, and it wasn't even a 'job' as I worked for free [well I got lunch] just for a chance to hang with my uncle on vacation.

He did Section 8 rehab for a landlord and had fogged a house the day before. We removed carpet that was literally coated wall to wall an inch deep with cockroaches. Saw 1000x more cockroaches that day than I have in the entire remainder of my life. Walked around on them. Got on my knees and pulled at the corners to pry the carpet up.

Fortunately, I didn't have an aversion. The worst of it was the smell of decaying cockroach corpses.

No kidding. I worked in a freaking horse barn for free and shoveled shit just so they'd let me ride their horses (then I got my own, and I'll say that riding other people's horses is more fun than taking care of your own). And that was then I was like 11 years old.

If you can stomach it, Section 8 rehabbing is perpetual employment.
Fix a house up [on the govt's dime], rent it out [on the govt's dime], wait until they move out, go back to step one. There were plenty of houses my uncle's employer owned that my uncle completely rehabbed 8-10-12 times.

One summer during college, I got hooked up with a job at a pickle factory thru a temp agency.

Best. Job. Ever.

Day One....So I stand at a conveyor belt all morning. Pushing the hot peppers down into the jars so the machine can put the covers on. This is some exciting sh!t I thought to myself.

I had gloves on but no matter. I was still going to smell like a red hot chilli pepper when I left....and we all know, nothing chicks dig more than when you come over at night smelling like a chilli pepper. So SEXY baby.

Right before lunch, the supervisor says to me "How's it going?" "F&ckin wonderful" I think to myself. Then he tells me "We are working mandatory overtime tonight". My response was "ok but I have a night job and will need to leave at 5PM as planned". His response..."ok but we are working mandatory OT tonight". My response "ok".

Punched out for lunch at noon and never went back. Should have known when the woman at the temp agency promised me she would find work for me if I did this assignment for her that something was up. But let's be honest....nothing like being able to put on your resume that you have mastered the art of hot pepper pusher downer. In 4 hours, I was able to master it and turn into one all at the same time.
