  1. Was a Jobs Daughter says:

    I was a Jobs daughter…found that the whole gang was nothing more than a who is more popular to be queen and predjudices were not hidden. My dad was 32nd degree mason and my mom’s only fault in the eyes of these snotty cows was that she was German. I quit after I was told I would never be more than what I was because of that …Nothing good to say about this gorup.

  2. Wow, that was not my experience at all. Sure there were issues as in any org. but none involving prejudice and in fact I became friends with people I may never have if not for our group. I’m sorry that was your experience. Try not to hold it against the entire organization.

  3. I, too, am sorry for the experience you had with this wonderful organization. As with any organization, there will be always be some negatives, unfortunately. My experience was life-changing! Had it not been for Job’s Daughters, I NEVER would have had any self-esteem or confidence. This organization gave me ambition, determination, and compassion. I still hold the Order near and dear to my heart and would love to be involved as an adult, but there are no bethels within a 100 mile radius of where I live.

  4. when i became a jobie on july 16th 2010 it was really scary but its 2012 i have a great reputation and A great chance of having a scholarship. besides there is something better than that its called FRIENDSHIP.
