Londoners reveal the worst jobs they’ve ever had to do

James Manning

We asked you about your hilariously horrible workplace experiences, and some of them were truly appalling. Here are a few lowlights from the professional careers of Time Out readers.

‘Sitting in a factory, dipping coils of copper wire into a pot of hot solder for £78 per week.’

‘Literally had to shovel shit all day.’

‘I had to get ants out of Jonathan Ross’s tent.’

‘I had a temp job for the infamous 5am sale at Next. I had to watch a bunch of mums queue all night then fight it out for cut-price maxi dresses.’

‘As an intern, I was expected to clean the office cat’s litter tray.’

‘Sifting through hundreds of blueberries each day in a cold room.’

‘Manager asked me to buy baby clothes for a sales manager’s newborn. I’m terrified of babies.’

‘I had to take the duvet that my boss and his fancy woman had sex on to the dry cleaner’s every few gos.’

‘“Sandwich artist”.’

Next we want to know: what’s the crappest present you’ve ever received?
