Candy counter girl, pizza line cook, theatrical lighting design, office supply store customer service, summer camp counselor, boating director, outdoor educator, summer program director, debate coach, medic, personal finance analyst, camp health officer, and clinic outreach worker.

Which was the best and why?
Summer camp program director. I love living at camp. I love being with the kids. I love managing programming, and I rocked at it. Who doesn't want to wear birkenstocks to work, play games with kids, and act like an idiot for cash?

Pizza was for sure the worst. I cannot deal wth other people's food. Ick. Gross. No.

What is your current job? I'm a mailhandler at the USPS
What other jobs have you had? I've been a receptionist/CSR, retail at Macy's and a candy store and a Ralph Lauren store.
Which was the best and why? My favorite job was doing stock at Ralph Lauren. I got paid pretty well for a part time job. I always had fun and when they closed the store we got one heck of a severence package. Plus we got up to 75% off on clothes, and they gave us $400 when the store first opened to buy a wardrobe.
Which was the worst and why? Woirking at a candy store. They had mice and I was in charge of cleaning the mouse traps-blech. And they would sell food that they knew had mouse poop on it. Once I realized that I quit, and was quite happy when they went out of business a year later.
What is your dream job? I'd love to be an elementary school teacher

What is your current job? I watch 2 girls at their house (and have my kiddo with me)

What other jobs have you had? McDs, JCP, lifeguard, summer camp counselor, tutor, teacher

Which was the best and why? They all had good parts (ice cream at McDs, discount at JCP, paid to do homework as a lifeguard (when no one was swimming), tutor-got to help kids with math-which I love!, teacher-various things, now-getting to be with my kiddo!).

Which was the worst and why? The worst was probably the last year I was teaching-PITA kids and parents who thought their kids were angels/straight A students-all while I was pregnant I had to deal wth the worst kids!!

What is your dream job? Pretty much doing what I do now, except I want to do it at my house...I plan to watch a kid or 2 here after the baby is born.

What is your current job? SAHM... although I do jewelry beading and have an online site that doesn't sell anything yet... I want to change that in 2008, and make it successful.

What other jobs have you had? Oh boy.... LOTS... gopher, cowmilker, babysitter, Docters Assistant, live-in house keeper, escort, exotic dancer, restaurant worker and cashier and waitress supervisor (not all at once), bus driver, janitorial staff, tree nursery staff and worker in a mentally handicapped home, hotel worker. Various sales positions. (Am I, could I be forgetting anything. ) Keep in mind, sometimes i worked 3 jobs at a time... hence so many different jobs.


Which was the best and why? Either the escort or what I do now. Why? Lots of free time, plenty of cash, usually fun.

Which was the worst and why? cow milker... had to shovel cow poop at the end of the day, almost slipped into the underground cow poop holder. I think I quit the next day.

What is your dream job? What I do now, but with my beading business thriving, and maybe doing some health related work on the side.
