When i began uni last yr, i worked at mcdonalds for three months. They made me do some long nasty night hours and it was very stressing on wkends. But it is hard work! This summer im working at a family theme pub called brewsters (www.brewsterthebear.co.uk) and again its a nightmare of rules, regulations and brand standards that get in the way of customer satisfaction.
Anybody recall their worst student jobs?

My first summer job was when I was 17, in a china factory. I had to check the dishes for imperfections before they went out to various restaurants, etc. as samples. It was hot as hell (my area was right next to the kiln), smelled awful, and my hands got badly cut up from the small pieces of china that were stuck to the bottoms of new dishes. One day I was summoned by the president. I appeared in the door of his office, he was at his desk. He asked me to step in and close the door behind me. I jokingly said "I was very busy, this better be good!" and he smiled and said "Oh, its going to be very good baby, I've got my pants down." I turned around and walked out, and never went back.

Are you serious? Wow...

My worst job was working at Wild West City for about 3 dollars an hour. I think I was 14.

Actually that would be a great opportunity for a pay raise...

Last summer I worked in an outdoor equipment store, which in itself was an ok job but the boss was the most horrible person you could meet (except when he was in a good mood, then he was nice but it wasn't often enough). He didn't give me a single day at the weekend off the whole two months I was there (all the other staff did - one guy got a whole weekend off) and would put us down, snarl at us for no reason, make people cry, and refuse to answer questions. And all for minimum wage.

One day I'll have that job with high pay and a small workload...which will be used to pay off student loans, probably. Ha.

I was a brick layers assistant for 3 days. He was a typical Pom and he stunk to fucking high Heaven. Everything that was a person was a 'fooking coont' and everything else that wasn't was a 'complete moother fooker'.

That's all the English can seem to be out here. Brick-fucking-layers. No wonder London has so many buildings.

That outdoor equipment guy sounds like a right prick. You should have stabbed him to death with a tent peg after hours and said it was an accident when the cops turn up.

Or you could have hidden in a tent for the day...then be given the pink slip for not turning up. Yep. That's the way.

I did go and hide in the big tent at the back when he was really bad...but I was too scared to stay in there for long in case he found me hiding in there - I hate to think what he'd have done.

The grossest thing I ever heard, came from a friend of mine who was a vet's assistant.

Apart from all the "regular" duties involving badly mutilated animals, and the birth, sh*t and p*ss duties - the artificial insemination and cross-breeding chores included (and I jest not here) WANKING dogs, and having them shoot into test tubes! Just enough to say that dogs have no sense of direction!

(I hope no-one is eating a sandwich at present!)

Well.. I was but I think I'll make myself another one. It just so happened I was eating a mayonaise sandwich. That sounds like a very, very interesting job. I'm sure.

And with Dr. Madio the Outdoor Guy...well it's probably best you're not there anyway. Could have always said 'Uh, I'm..testing out the tent...and...DIE!' that's when you throw a bottle of gas at him..or hit him over the head with an entrenching tool. Just like the Allies did in WW1.

Didn't have a student job, but it does help when your parents are millionaires.

I've been working in the restaurant of my friend's father for 4 years now and still enjoying it but it can be really stressing, especially over Christmas.
But I like it, it's great fun cos I get to work with my best friend and I know her family very well so it's like home for me.

I also used to cook for my brothers' Italian fast food take away place.. I loved it..except for when I burnt my face and became horribly disfigured. Well, not really. Just a little scar nothing much. I usually tell people I was fighting a lion and he got a lucky punch in. Lions can punch, you see?
