Blog Poll Results: What is the Worst Job Ever?

There are some days when we feel like our jobs drag on and it's the worst job in the world. Whether you sit at a desk or stand up on your feet all day, I'm sure there are days when you just don't feel like being at work. I've been working since I was 14-years-old and I've held quite a number of different jobs and wanted to know what is one of the worst jobs ever?

The results recently wrapped up for the poll I had posted on here for over a month. Voters had a chance to select multiple answers and the #1 chosen worst job is... bathroom attendant. This topped the other jobs with 35% of the votes. Below are the poll results in order:

Bathroom Attendant topped this list as the worst job
Bathroom Attendant 35%
Any Work Outside in the Heat 29 %
Janitor 17%
Maid 11%
Working in Retail 11%
Garbage Truck Driver 5%
Fast Food Worker 5%
Restaurant Server 0%
Gas Station Attendant 0%
DMV Worker 0%
My Job is Worse 0%
Other 0%

Do you agree with the results? And, is it customary to tip bathroom attendants when they hand you a towel and mints?

I must say, I am a bit surprised there weren't any votes for restaurant server... not one!? And 0% for DMV workers? Every time I go to Motor Vehicles those workers look so angry, lol.

Bizarre Jobs

There are so many jobs out there that may qualify as the absolute worse but it was impossible to list them all. I even found some very odd jobs while searching around on the web, one being an armpit sniffer! Yes, there are people who do this bizarre job for a living to see if different deodorants are effective. How else would we know?

And check this, the salary in this field ranges from $19,000 to $52,000 a year, varying with experience and seniority.

But hey, a job is a job and anyone with a job should be lucky they have one nowadays no matter what kind of job it is. 

Thank you to everyone who participated in this poll. There will be more in the future, so keep looking out!
