If you think wielding proton packs and dodging globs of ectoplasm make for a strange job, just wait until you find out what the women of "Ghostbusters" were doing before their entertaining careers.

Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones paid a visit to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Wednesday and shared their less-than-star-studded past jobs — which, for Jones, involved being a telemarketer for the Church of Scientology.

"Uh, yeah, they kinda still don't know I'm not a Scientologist," she said to the amusement of her co-stars. "I lived in Glendale, I needed to pay the rent and it was a very easy interview. I just acted crazy!"

Then McKinnon confessed to once taking a job she wasn't exactly qualified for.

"Umpire ... for little league," she recalled. "In retrospect, should have brushed up on the rules of softball before litigating them. But I didn't. Oh, I got yelled at! Oooh, they did not like my calls — and they were bad, bad calls."

And Wiig?

"I was an umpire for a Scientology baseball team," she deadpanned.

But really, Wiig and McCarthy were much more interested in talking about the actor who took the job as their receptionist in "Ghostbusters" — the always-easy-on-the-eyes Chris Hemsworth.

Just the mention of his name had all of the ladies exclaiming something that sounded like "maaahwaaahaaaw!"

We totally understand.
