-bash: no job control in this shell

It means you can't hit CTRL-Z to suspend a process, move processes to
the foreground and background, or use the jobs command. See the JOB
CONTROL section of bash(1) for more details.
Not sure what causes it, but I always (and only) see it when I boot
for emergency recovery with "init=/bin/sh".

It may have something to do with your terminal.

It's fairly harmless, but very annoying, especially if you get stuck
and need to kill something.

Depending on what's caused it to break, you could look at your
terminal configuration, try using the "set -m" command to turn job
control back on, starting up another shell, or using screen(1).

To find out, create a brand new user with default dotfiles, and try
logging in as that user.
