    Ever Get Gas For Your Car? Remember This...

    Please remember to be kind to the attendant working there! I constantly bring my best to my gas station job, even if it is just a minimum wage job. I try to be kid and courteous to the people that come through, but people usually forget that behind the glass and uniform is a...

    Already dreading tomorrow

    and my boss is still going to be out for a few days. I just had my 5 year anniversary (with almost 3 years before as a contractor) and all that hiring did was guarantee that I would have to pay off POS to get divorced. Still have over a year to go to repay my 401k loan to get...

    I recently started work

    as a retail assistant and don't get me wrong I am thankful to be working and off the dole and paying my way into society now but I still hate my job. It's so boring and mind-numbing just scanning and serving, scanning and serving over and over again day in, day out. I hate...

    Worth More

    I have been at the same job for a year and a half. I took it as a temporary job until I found something better and ended up staying. I knew when I took the job I was overqualified. I also knew that I was worth way more than what I was being paid. Apparently, my boss saw that I...

    I am nearly at a breaking point.

    I have a very well paying job and a very good position but it's mind numbingly boring and monotonous. I have nothing else to fall back on and can't afford to start over. My only solace is music but I can't seem to turn it up loud enough to drown out my creative mind calling me...

    So I've only worked for this company

    for about a month and a half if even that. I am a full time college student so my schedule does change some. Today marked the third day in the last two weeks that I was told I would get a call concerning the schedule and did not receive that call. I like about 45 minutes away...

    I hate it because you are spending time working

    for money. Money that you then spend. In effect, you are buying and paying with your time. A bus ticket might cost an hour of your life.

    I didn't always hate working at Shane's Rib

    Shack but lately it's been hell. Suddenly there is so much favoritism to too employees by one manager. This manager argues and talks **** towards everyone and is a complete ***** even if you're not involved with what drama she's got going on. Like my main friend there has been...

    For Real.

    I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why the present business model of various corporations and businesses- in both the private and public sector- sucks so badly. I am further confused as to why those of us at the lower levels of the ladder can see easy and painless fixes...

    I work in IT and my job rules my life too much.

    I'm required to be on call a lot and am so sick of it. I miss just having an 8 hour job and coming home and not worry about work. There are days where we are slammed non stop and some nights we are up half or all night working. Then have to go back in the office the very next...
