Students spoke about the worst jobs they ever had and it was discovered that some of them disliked their jobs for a varieties reasons.

Senior Elizanette Lopez said that the worst job she ever had was working for a daycare at a gym.

"I had to care for one to nine kids at a time from ages 1.5 to 12 years," Lopez said. "All the toys we had were outdated, broken, or not age appropriate so the kids would get bored and start acting up."

Lopez said no one had properly trained her for the job or on how to discipline the kids.

"Also, I couldn’t build a trusting relationship with them because none of them were consistently in my care," Lopez said.

Lopez also said the worst day at the job was when a 3-year-old pulled and held onto a handful her sister’s hair and would not let go.

Freshman Jake Myers said he used to work for the county and had to dig graves.

"It was the worst job, not only cause of the hard labor, but it was really depressing because you were digging a grave," Myers said.

Freshman Summer Salgado said that working at The Springs was her worst job.

She had to assist the elderly who have Alzheimer’s, dementia or both.

"It’d have to be the worst, not because of the work, which is changing diapers and dealing with the ones who bite, pinch and hit but it’s the worst because I got attached to them quick," Salgado said.

Salgado said it was difficult when the resident she cared for passed away.

"They become like family," Salgado said.

Two students said one of the reasons they did not like their jobs was because of the rude customers.

Freshman Jordan Ramirez said the worst job she ever had would have to be when she waitressed for a Mexican food restaurant.

"Customers would be so rude and talk Spanish to each other, thinking I couldn’t understand," Ramirez said.

Freshman Kassie Acosta said she worked at a movie theater that did not give her good hours and did not care for what she did at the job.

"The management wasn’t very appreciative of what I did for them and some of the customers were rude," Acosta said.

On the flip side, a few students said they have liked the jobs they had previously been at.

Sophomore Alyssa Torres said the only two jobs she had were working on campus and being a babysitter.

"I’ve loved the two," Torres said.
