Monday is Labor Day so it’s a good time to recall the greatest and most terrible jobs you’ve had.
The job I liked best was being the consumer action columnist for The Anchorage Times. I answered consumer questions from readers. It was terrific. My dream job.
The job I disliked the most was working at the cookhouse at the Wenatchee-Beebe Orchard Co. when I was a teenager. I had to get up early, walk a half a mile, set things out, help do the dishes and wash the trays, help get lunch ready, help do the dishes again, walk home for a rest, walk back for dinner, and help with the dishes again.
What’s the best job you ever had? What made it great? Was the work interesting and worthwhile? Did a great boss make the job terrific?
What made your worst job so terrible? Was it dull? Was your boss abusive? Were you overlooked for promotion although you performed well?
