Every job has its good and bad sides. But, of course, it depends on the traits the job offers and your passion and love for it. Sometimes, even while doing your job from dreams, bad things can happen or vice versa.
1. Beware if You Know How to Use a Printer
A user shared their experience when he worked as a printer in a company. The downside was that he was the only one who knew how to operate them, and he couldn’t get a day free, even if sick. And the managers had to go to the house to check if he was that sick in those moments.
2. Love Troubles Through Wires
Someone expressed their feelings while working as a wire harness engineer. Even though the job was pretty good, the users’ experience could have been better. His manager liked the coworker while thinking that he wanted to date her.
So, our user experienced the feeling of working like a slave without many options to do anything else; he was forced to leave the job.
3. Hospital Security Worker
You would never think there’s much going on in the Hospital night shift. Another shared a story about things getting pretty physical regularly, even if they were working as average Security staff, besides long and exhausting shift patterns that destroyed their sleeping balance.
The biggest concern was spending half of the time watching and taking care of the patients from the Mental health department. The ultimate icebreaker was when one patient attacked three colleagues and inflicted severe injuries on them, making them leave the job.
4. Sea-world Sadness
An individual shared their sad and lousy experience working in SeaWorld among the cleaning staff and having to stay every night at least 2 hours more than their work shift, solely out of the reason that everything has to be cleaned to perfection for tomorrow. All of that while listening to the same music and announcements daily.
In the meantime, you can only have a day free by working eight or nine days in a row. After quitting the job, they returned to the Seaworld after more than ten years, where all they saw was that the situation was almost the same, now just sadder and worse.
The enclosures for some animals were smaller, and some things have changed, but overall, it’s nothing better. It goes down in time.
5. Call-center Dispatch
Somebody expressed their feelings about working in a call center. They explained how they got nonstop verbal abuse while working.
Enduring all that verbal abuse, sometimes worse than physical, is something almost no one can cope with. And, of course, it’s minimum wage with few benefits. The saddest part is when a college classmate gets the position of a business director, with four times better pay and less work, only because he had connections.
6. Airport Truck Driver
You would think having a job as a lavatory truck driver doesn’t have its wrong sides, but you wouldn’t be right. Besides not much free time and constant repetitive work, one person answered that a lavatory spill happened on the runway while the planes were parked. And there was a whole day of cleaning up without a stop.
7. Pizza From Hell
Being a pizza chef in a Godfather pizza restaurant sounds lovely, except that the role of the job was a reference to the movie. Besides being bullied by the old owner and his drug-addicted son, the situation worsens when the person gets bullied by the son’s girlfriend.
The individual got poorly treated, didn’t have any work hours, and, of course, you got the family of Sopranos above your head eating your brain.
8. Candyshop Trouble
Several users suggested that working in a local sweets shop can be slightly sour. The owners were mistreating the workers, and for example, the worst experience was when an emergency occurred, and the worker had to drive his wife to the ER. Then, the owner just asked when they would return and get back to work. Just horrible.
9. Wildland Firefighter
Others suggested that besides being one of the noblest and bravest jobs, you can expect the worst. You find yourself in a situation where everything burns around you, and one mistake and a wrong step can cost your life. One person’s experience was almost getting killed by falling debris just because they took their look off for a second.
10. Almost Handicapped
A final user added that they worked as an electrician filling electronic components from resins. One day, while going on a lunch break, they got a little paper message on the table.
The letter contained a random address at the moment. Deciding to go after work, the person went to the place where they were greeted by a group of people who were disabled. All of them were from the same job in the same company. That was enough reason to get the hell away from that place.
