I Hate My Job

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,825 People

    In August I started a new job at a Pharmacy

    because I couldn't stand the job I had at the time. I was really looking forward to this new job because hey better pay! & It seemed like a nice little close knot "family". The hours were much better! It dealt with only certain types of people, and it's just down the hill from...

    I don't like who I am

    as a person right now. My work situation has me so stressed that I think about walking out everyday. I have nightmares about it and when I am there I at times feel like I can't breathe and at times cry. Work is making me into this person whom I don't like. I am negative, I...

    So here's what I deal with.

    I have worked in a call center for 2 years. I bust my tail at work every day, and my stats are consistently the highest on my team. I just got the lowest raise on my team though, due to some BS reason that they are evaluating us on different performance levels. I am so sick of...

    I'm really not enjoying my job.

    It seems to be wherever I work, well I've only worked for 2 banks - it seems the women I work with are so bitchy and mean! People say it's jealously but it seems to be out of my friends and other people it just seems to be me that gets targeted a little. I'm trying to work out...

    It's not unbearable. I'm no fan of

    industrialization, but as far as factories go, this one is better than the others. However, I've picked up a persistent cough since I started working there, and I have no doubt it's from all the metal dust I'm inhaling. Coworkers have assured me it'll go away, but I don't want...

    It has its up days and its down days

    but all in all I want out of it. Most of the people I work with are great and the customers aren't all that bad for the most part but oh gods some people have an ego that needs shot down.

    which means I would earn 4 weeks vacation for my length of service. Today they rewrote the policy so we all only get 2 weeks vacation. I have waited 10 yrs for my 4 weeks and I got robbed of it. Due to the fact too many ppl would be getting more than 2 weeks since they had been...
