My first job was my worst job. Right out of HS (1961) I worked as a painter's helper in a shop that finished aircraft parts. Every piece had to be wiped down multiple times with a solvent that ate through every kind of rubber gloves I could find, then it started working on my skin. Chapped hands? You don't really know chapped hands like I do.

I joined the Navy, where I learned Electronics and that totally changed my life. 46 years continuous employment with five employers -- no breaks except for paid time off for vacations and an occasional sick day. All the job changes were my choices. Funny thing, too: I joined the Navy not knowing what they were going to have me do. I had two semesters of Electricity in HS and that qualified me for the Navy School. You never know what's going to pay off for you.

I'm a fisherman with a long line fishingboat.. i'm at sea for 2 weeks at a time without any sign of civilisation, home for 1-2 days, then back out. there's not one machine onboard that can't kill you, or at least take off your arm if you're not careful.. we work in two shifts, 6 hours on, 6 off, round the clock.. However, we're one man short, so every 4th shift is a 12 hour shift, with still only 6 hours off (that's 18 hours out of 24).. we mostly fish between the Faroe Islands and Iceland, in the middle of the atlantic, 200 miles from land.. You can not imagine how bad the weather can get out there in the winter.. 80 mph winds and 25 foot waves... Oh, and there's fish guts everywhere :S

I am a lifeguard. It's the worst but it's kinda bad. I have to clean up after the bratty kids that swim there, they splash me and think it's funny and I tell them to stop but they don't. I'm not really allowed to kick them out because my boss doesn't want the rich parents to get mad at the club. They parents don't watch their kids and let really young kids go into the pools by themselves when they shouldn't be left alone for a second.

Thats not the worst though... my south african boss locked me in the freezer one day the shop was in a shopping complex he locked the freezer and everyone else had gone home, thankfully the cleaner heard me shrieking and came in and rescued me, I'd been in there for an hour by that time... god I hated that job. I quit that day.

I worked at a bakery (it was my first job) and my boss was a south african bloke, now I've always been a bigger girl and at the time I got hired another girl got hired too she got put on front counter (which is what I wanted to do) and I got put out the back cleaning **sigh** everything I did was never good enough it was always wrong!! anywho one day skye (the girl I got hired with) had to work out back with me I was getting good at bringing the hot pie racks out, that were usually extremely heavy, the boss comes in and says Skye has to reload the pie ovens, so she starts pulling them out, she is a tiny girl and she starts to wobble with the first pie tray its way too heavy for her literally she throws the bloody thing at me, I catch it without thinking, most of the pies have slid off the tray and landed in a mess on the floor, the boss comes out sees the burns on my arms from the tray then counts the pies on the floor and deducts that from my pay... skye got away scot free...

I used to work at GameStop in the Mission Viejo Mall. What I really hated most was when parents would up and leave their children alone in the store for hours at a time.

I would go up to them, crouch, and gently ask, "Hey there. Do you know where your parents are?"

They'd look at me with those soft eyes, as if they were going to be in trouble or get yelled at, and answer "No...", "She's working..." "I dunno..."

So if you want a kid, and I mean you -really- want a baby, head down to any GameStop equipped with a game demo station in a mall and take your pick of the litter, obviously their original parents don't want them otherwise they'd be there with them, right?

See? Easy child army, there ya go. Have fun with that. You can recreate Oliver Twist or Little Orphan Annie.

You were lucky. We lived for three months in a paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six in the morning, clean the paper bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down t' mill, fourteen hours a day, week-in week-out, for sixpence a week, and when we got home our Dad would thrash us to sleep wi' his belt.

Fisheries Lab. I manhandled thousands of live and dead salmon and whitefish. I often killed them by whacking them over the head, and gutting them (first the eyes, then the gills, then a slit to the belly). Hour after hour after hour.

I worked on a "Honey Wagon" when I was 17. For those who are not familiar with the term a "honey Wagon" is another term used for a Porta Potty cleaning truck. One day we got the contract to suck all the poo out of the potty's at a large outdoor concert which I really wanted to go to but couldn't afford the ticket. Thinking that I was not only going to see the concert but also get paid for it, I figured it was going to be a half decent day. All that changed when halfway through sucking the poo out of this one disgustingly over filled potty something very large got stuck in the suction pipe/pump. Not normally a big deal, but when there is a huge crowd of people around and your trying not to cover everyone with poo and urine it can be a little nerve racking. I managed to remove the obstruction which turned out to be a backpack full of clothes, fired up the pump and then BOOM poo was flying everywhere. I had forgotten to tighten a clamp on the hose and the pump was in r

My first job was KP in a very busy, hot, noisy and annoying cafe kitchen. Plus all the lady cooks were lesbians. WHERE'S THE FUN IN THAT?!

Wow.. My first job is nothing compared to some of what I've read on here.. I work as a cashier at a drugstore. It's not really that bad... We have some self righteous cosmeticians and bitchy customers but for the most part it's not awful.
