    Why is it so difficult finding a job

    that isn't minimum wage and completely mind numbingly boring. I left my job for the job I am in now (more money, nearer home, better prospects) just to realise that it is a horrible job with miserable people who also hate their job. I massively regret getting into this situation...

    My boss is a slob, a pervert,

    a hoarder and a racist. I work at small Screen Printing shop and it's just the two of us. Half of the shop is filled with his own personal stuff and it's so unprofessional. If I have to listen to another ignorant rant of his, clean up after him, or take time off because he...

    State Government Is Sucking The Life Out Of Me

    After my private industry job picked up and moved to Southeast Asia without me and left me in an uncertain and even frightening brush with unemployment, I decided to look into government work as a means by which to ensure the experience would not be repeated.  I...

    Did I Waste 4 Years In College And $30,000 To Get A Receptionist Job?

    I didn't start college until I was 25. My parents had a good income but they blew it all on garbage, so I didn't qualify for many grants, but they didn't help me out so I had to wait until their income no longer counted against me when it came to loans and grants. I worked all...

    I wanted to keep my old job

    but kept getting hints from the boss that if I behaved, he would be my reference to get another job. That's the last thing I wanted. I guess I'm not corporate employee material.

    Where I work we are not allowed to call out,

    and if we do we need to bring in a doctors note, even for the common cold. We also do not get breaks during an 8 hour or longer shift. The boss expects you to be like some robot that never gets stressed or sick and is perfect. And when we aren't, we get in trouble. I have to go...
