What I Did:
I worked as a maid in a bed and breakfast. I thought it would be a good job because the hours were flexible and it was part time.
Why was it a bad job?
It was awful. After the guests checked out, the owner went to all the rooms and collected the tips. So, we ended up with no tip money.
There was no air conditioning and it was really, really hot on the second and third floor.
When business was slow we had to do yard work and gardening - also when it was really hot.
