If you think your jobs is bad, think again. Unless it involves wading through human excrement, farming maggots, or peeling roadkill of the nation’s highways then you’ve got it pretty good because these are the 25 grossest jobs you could have. And if you can think of anything grosser just leave a comment below!


Maggot Farmer

Imagine having a job that smells so bad you need to take three showers a day just to not scare away the neighbors. It sounds terrible but raising maggots to sell as fishing bait or for agricultural purposes is an extremely lucrative profession.


Forensic Entomologist

By studying the development of maggots and other insects on dead bodies, these investigative professionals can tell things such as how long a body has been dead. It’s an important job but also a dirty one as most of your day is spent not just among dead people, but rotting, smelly dead people.


Chicken Sexer

To a farmer, knowing the sex of his or her chickens early on in life is necessary in order to determine the proper nourishment track (raise for meat, laying eggs, etc). The only way to do this at an early stage of development, however, is to literally squeeze the crap out of the chick, opening its anal vent, and allowing the sexer to see if it has a small bump indicating that it is male.



If your idea of having a good time includes removing puss from peoples faces as they get a facial then this may be the job for you.


Chimney Sweep

Although the profession isn’t as dangerous as it used to be and chimney sweeps no longer employ little boys to climb up narrow chimneys for them, this job is still one of the dirtiest around.
