What Was Your Worst Job Ever? Tell us and Win $10!
It’s time for our weekly trivia question: What was your most hated job? Share your sad, tacky, or scary employment experiences and be entered to win a $10 Gift Certificate!
Maybe it was years ago, or perhaps you’re still struggling through one of the most dismal career experiences in history. We want to hear about it! My worst job involved telemarketing for one day… I was called every foul name in the book and I was only 17! Another horrible job scenario had me peddling pizza coupons on the wrong side of town for commission only. (Glad I escaped that one unharmed.)
What about you? Do you have an icky tale to tell? Share your thoughts on this provocative question, and be entered to win one of two $10 Amazon gift certificates. The randomly-selected, winning answers will be read live on Wednesday’s Living Large on a Small Budget Blog Talk Radio Show (where we will be discussing business values and the economy with ING Direct CEO Arkadi Kuhlmann.)
Those of you who aren’t familiar with the “drill,” read below for full details:

Comment #13 -Worst job: working for a Submitted by Mary
Worst job: working for a company that didn't pay me for four months straight. I went from October to February with no paychecks. In San Diego. I had to call my dad and beg for money to pay my rent.
Alternately, working at IHOP as a hostess when I was 16. 7:30 AM to 2:30 PM, on your feet with no breaks, and if you were hungry at the end of your shift, you had to pay for your own food. One morning the cash register broke at 10:30 AM - which was right when the after-church crowd decided to come on over for some pancakes.
I did learn how to carry six water glasses at once and how to count out money so it snaps, though.
