Ted Bundy’s Various Jobs
High School : Lawn Cutting Company with three other boys.
June/September 1965 : Worked at Tacoma City Light as a forklift operator.
September 1967 – Works at the Seattle Yacht Club as a busboy. He was fired after 6 weeks for stealing food. I’m a little confused about that one as Mrs. Ferris ( pastry chef at the Seattle Yacht Club that Ted befriended) stated that he was fired after only 6 weeks, Ann Rule said that job lasted 6 months and A Visual Timeline said he parked cars at the Seattle Yacht Club and left in January 1968. I need to look further into it, but 6 months makes more sense.
Edit : According to the police files, he left on January 13, 1968, which means he worked there 4 months.
March 1968 : Works at the Olympic Hotel, in Seattle. He was fired for stealing from lockers.
April 12/July 26, 1968 : Works at Queen Anne Safeway in Seattle as a stocker. According to Mrs. Ferris : « I helped him get a job at Safeway for a short while and he just quit, not even going back to work to tell them he was leaving. »
