Fast food workers. Telemarketers. Bartenders. These professions have the highest share of employees who say their jobs make the world a worse place!

Many fast food workers aren’t feeling so good about handing you those greasy burgers and fries. In a survey conducted by PayScale that asked employees, ‘Does your job make the world a better place?,” 38.4% of fast food workers said their job was actually making the world a worse place!

Gaming Dealer

Watching gamblers throw their money away weighs on the consciences of some casino dealers, whose job often involves dealing the hands for games like poker and blackjack, distributing the winnings and collecting the losers’ chips at the end of a game.

“They’re supporting peoples’ vices,” said PayScale’s Bardaro. “They may feel they’re making the world a worse place by taking money away from people who often can’t afford to lose that money.”


Interrupting family dinners with phone calls about products that people often don’t need may lead some telemarketers to question the worthiness of their line of work.

TV Newcast Director

Producing news about natural disasters, mass murders and economic meltdowns can take a toll on some TV newscast directors, who often work in control rooms and make sure everything runs smoothly.


Getting people drunk may be fun, but some bartenders don’t find it to be the most meaningful career.  “Does alcohol and the related downfalls of alcohol — including drunk driving and alcoholism — make the world a better place? For many bartenders, they may think not,” said career coach Garfinkle.

Loan Collector

Spending your days chasing down people who haven’t paid their loans can be emotionally exhausting.

“A loan collector may feel guilty when trying to collect from customers who have fallen on hard financial times,” said career coach Garfinkle.

Fashion Designer

“A lot of people have issues with body image, and fashion designers can make that worse in a lot of ways,” said PayScale’s Bardaro. “[Some of them] are designing clothes for models that don’t represent the typical woman’s body … so you have people with eating disorders and low confidence because they can’t wear the clothes they see in a magazine.”
