Top 5 Jobs People Regret Taking the Most
In my life I've been blessed with lots of jobs. If I had to pick one I "Regret Taking The Most" it would probably be working on the kill floor of Iowa Beef Processing. What drew me into the job was the opportunity to wear the cool rubber boots and hard hat. Pulling lungs outta cows for 8 hours a day was just a bonus.
Patty said the job she regrets taking the most is day she said yes to working with me. Ouch.
A new survey found the TOP-5 JOBS PEOPLE REGRET TAKING THE MOST, and why. Check 'em out and let us know what you think. What is the job your regret taking?
1. Cashier. The average salary is $18,600 . . . and that's not enough money to deal with an endless stream of angry and impatient customers.
2. Mechanic. It's a great job if you have a passion for it . . . but otherwise, it's tough to stick it out. The average salary is $36,100, the hours are long, and it requires nonstop training to get any good.
3. Middle school or high school teacher. Obviously teaching can be one of the most rewarding jobs . . . but if you just jump in because a $43,000 job was open and you don't love teaching, the stress and the difficulty could overwhelm you.
4. Delivery driver. The job is physically demanding, it pays an average of $31,600, and there's ZERO meaningfulness to it.
5. Bank teller. The average salary is $24,400 and it's not for everyone . . . you have to be good at customer service and very detail oriented.
