This is a not so fun post, but it's always nice to look back on awful workplaces so you can be relieved that you'll never, ever work there again.
My worst job ever was when I was sixteen and worked at The Hilton over the summer. Every housekeeper was overworked, underpaid...and the elder housekeepers were treated pretty poorly; their back and arm pain that they acquired from making the heavy beds were dismissed. I cried nearly everyday at that job, as I was constantly monitored and was trying to clean up to 15 rooms a day. It was horrible. I was fired after 4 weeks, as the boss (who never ever worked as a cleaning lady) told me I was costing the company too much money, and shamed me for not being able to clean rooms on time and leaving it up to other poor housekeepers who had families to go to and places to be. It was awful. I tried to hold back tears, and dropped my shit on the floor and left.
I met great people there, and learned a lot about what I DON'T want in life, and also how the real world can really really suck. It killed me that the girl who worked in pretty little offices her whole life could have so much control over my life, and make me feel like sh*t in a matter of seconds.
SO, that's my story, what's yours??

My worst job was for a lawyer. She was nuts. She hardly paid me and would expect me to drive all over for free and run personal errands. I worked out of her house and it was filthy and she had a cat that attacked me and shed all over me. It was terrible.

I worked in a chip stand for a summer. Tiny little shack with 3 deep fryers and a grill running. I smelled like a french fry for MONTHS!

I feel so sad for you anonymous because of the way you were treated.No one deserves to be treated like that.I guess I was fortunate to not have any bitches or what ever, where I worked in the past.I have worked for 50yrs,and I must say,I had nothing but respect and no run- ins with anyone.Some peoples job just goes to their head,amazing what a little authority can do.I believe everyone should be treated equally,with dignity and respect.Those type of people I call Bullies.There is always one thing though that I do believe in is that,whatever goes around comes around.Those people who hurt you in the past,will have their day coming.

As New year's is around the corner I often find myself sitting back and wondering if this is really my dream job. If I even started on half of what I do for this company and what I had went through I am sure it would strike a nerve with most of you.
For example: worked till I was full term, 4 dr. notes stating to be off the floor and just do Admin work... that was swept under the rug and I was forced to go out use the forklift lift heavy boxes, and move metal belts to one end of the warehouse to the other and I could go on.
Not sure what I can do but I would love to work from home though.
