I Hate My Job But Thankful That I Have One

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 123 People

    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...

    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'm not even that thankful anymore.

    Now I just hate and detest it.

    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 my job. I didn't always hate it,

    but I do now and with a passion. The thing is, I really wanted this job....BAD! When I started here I worked one day a week, four hours. That's how bad I wanted to work here. I did that for FIVE years. I work in a public library, just so you know. Finally a position within...

    I Ain't Curing Cancer

    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 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...

    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...

    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 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...
