18 People Who Decided to Share Deep Secrets About Their Jobs Online

year ago

It takes a lot of work for the world as we know it to function. This means that there are usually secrets that employees must keep to ensure everything can be “business as usual”. However, it wouldn’t hurt to know some of those secrets. Well, some workers decided to let the public know secrets from their jobs that will blow your mind.

  • As an elementary school teacher, you would be shocked at your child’s behavior. These parents who say, “My child would never do that.” Oh, yes they would. © Murky_Deer_7617 / Reddit
  • I briefly worked for a store that is known for being very eco-friendly. Everything is being sold without plastic packaging, and we actively had to tell people we didn’t sell any products made out of plastic. Little did customers know that every week, on the day the load came in, one employee was specifically scheduled to remove the packaging of all the items before they were displayed in the store.
    Literally every little teaspoon came in separate plastic packaging. When I asked the manager about it, they just shrugged it off and blamed it on the distributor. Needless to say, I quit after 4 days. © eevurt / Reddit
  • There are too many dentists out there that are scammers and try to convince people they need procedures or appliances that they don’t need. Be wary of anyone who tells you that you are a unique case, and they are the only ones that can help you. Be wary of anyone who promises all your other health/sleep/fitness, etc. problems will be solved by a dental procedure. And always get a second opinion if the costs are adding up. © saphirablue / Reddit
  • I worked a seasonal retail job in a department store. I don’t know if it’s a “secret”, but people and store storage rooms are gross. Wash ALL your clothing before wearing it, y’all. © RedRose_812 / Reddit
  • High school teacher. Kids gossip about everything, and they think we can’t hear. We can, and I know every secret about their parents, grandparents, cousins, friends, significant others, acquaintances, and strangers. And then we tell our coworkers the tea. © c010nn03l / Reddit
  • If you leave a voicemail for a doctor’s office — be brief. The long, embarrassing ones might get played on speakerphone for all staff to hear. © effthatno1se / Reddit
  • I’ve worked in several restaurants. The employees (servers and kitchen) rarely wash their hands. And I mean RARELY. Especially the cooks. And then they don’t use gloves when making the food. Just going from raw chicken to salads willy-nilly, just wiping off their hands on their apron/a paper towel.
    Ice machine is moldy. People come to work sick all the time. Constantly. They’re always sick.
    One time one of the cooks served rotten shrimp ALL shift long before telling the manager it was rotten. We’d been wondering all day what was smelling so rancid in the kitchen. © kimbalayy / Reddit
  • I used to work in a finance department as a finance manager for my company, for big meetings we’d have dress codes that were a lot about looking attractive. © Nervous-Toe-6779 / Reddit
  • I’m a florist. And we think your wedding flowers are ugly. We think your wedding colors are ugly. We judge your choice of partner. © DoeOfTheGarden / Reddit
  • If your haircut is messed up, there’s a 50% chance it was done on purpose. © Ok-You8515 / Reddit
  • I work as a hotel receptionist. We ALWAYS know if couples are lovers or not. Sometimes we can also tell which one is married. They don’t even have to speak. Their body language and the overall vibe say it all. © tifetqueen / Reddit
  • I’m a programmer. It’s genuinely not that hard, it’s mostly copy and paste with some problem-solving. © think_of_some / Reddit
  • I worked in a bakery for a time, and people get mad when the salesperson doesn’t use gloves when giving bread, while inside the bakery, nobody uses gloves. © KeeperOT7Keys / Reddit
  • Worked in computer repairs for a while. Tech workers can and TOTALLY WILL look through your computer when you bring it in for repairs, they won’t take anything, but they’ll look at all your personal stuff just for fun. © MidnightFireHuntress / Reddit

Some jobs are so strange or difficult that few dare do them. Have you ever had a job like that? Have you ever had a job that you were embarrassed of doing? Why?
