Top 7 Worst Jobs Ever

14.01.2015 319

There is a bulk of jobs in the world. Some of them are great, others - horrible. But all the jobs are necessary regardless of its attraction. We made a rating of the 7th worst jobs in the world.

1. Sewers Cleaner

Kind of the worst job ever. India, Calcutta. If you are a sewers cleaner than you have to sit in a low crouch at the bottom of a seven-foot-deep manhole, sloshing away in a swirl of human waste and sediment. Equipped with just a hoe a steel bar, and wearing only a pair of loose purple underpants, you have to empty the thick black sludge from a clogged sewer into a bucket that his fellow crew members hoist up and dump in the middle of a narrow road.

2. Taxi Driver

It has always been a tough job. Dangerous work conditions, underpayment, and the most likely profession to be the victim of a crime. Plus, the trickle-down effect in the job markets, that resulted from the recession, has increased competition for low-requirement jobs like taxi driver.

3. Cat Food Quality Controller

No, we do not go wrong, we talk about quality control on cat food. If you have to do this job, then you have to bury your face in a huge tub of cat food and sniff it to make sure it's fresh. Then you plunge your arms in it up to the elbows and grope for bony bits and take them out. Well, and finally you scoop up huge dollop of it, smear it flat on surface and prod it with fingers to test how much gristle is there. After that you won't like cats at all.

4. Newspaper Reporter

The job of a newspaper reporter is considered to be the worst job. Well, the reason of the conditions that they have to work in. Flood, earthquake, blast or murder, whatever happens or whatever is the weather condition, be it rain or thunderstorm or any other thing they have to be there and find out the details. Imagine, you have to poke your nose in other’s lives, run after famous people and find out the whole story and report it.

5. Microsoft IT Security Staff

Yes, you are working for one of the biggest IT companies in the world. But this job is just like wearing a big sign that reads "Hack Me." The people manning receive approximately 100,000 e-mails annually, and each one could be a message that something at Microsoft has gone horribly wrong.

6. Military Personnel

Probably not one of the worst job but it's a type of the most dangerous job. Your life is always on the line, as is the life of everyone you work with. Terrorist threats, posttraumatic syndrome, psychic tension, etc. But in this list it's the most honorable job. You protect your country and it's worth much.

7. Olympic Drug Tester

A rather unusual choice for this list, but imagine how much work these guys have to do in an attempt to combat the inevitable doping among Olympic athletes trying to cheat their way to medals. Drug testers have to watch the athletes pee in a cup, and if you catch a doper, an entire country hate you and your job.
