I Hate My Job

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,856 People

    I don't know how much more I can take.

    I am a restaurant manager and I am severely overworked. My company runs really low labor budgets - pretty common in the industry- but I wind up having to do hourly employee tasks for a few hours a day on top of all my managerial duties. I work 60-65 hours a week usually...

    I hate working. I don't want a job

    and I don't want to work for someone else. You work so that you can make money and take care of yourself or your family, but that soesn't interest me one bit. I could care less about having money and contributing to a society that's already falling apart. I hate that the only...

    My job is just unbelievable.

    I'll try to sum it up by telling you about the folks I work with: First, there is this supermodel wanna-be chick. Yeah, okay, she is pretty hot, but damn is she completely useless. The girl is constantly fixing her hair or putting on makeup. She is extremely self-centered and...

    I'm working on an IT project

    Been at my job for over 13 years.

    Every year gets even worse than the year before. I have worked hard and at times to the point where i have all i can do to move because I'm physically drained. Management in my department is like a revolving door and when there is no manager I'm looked at to lead. Thing is, I...

    and even better, The person that did get the promotion I was supposed to get is literally so incompetent, that they are quadrupling my work load, simply b/c they can't be bothered to do the bare-minimum that is required of them. My manager won't even punish them, instead he...

    Yes, it pays well but so does the misery. It's a thankless job where people would rather point out your mistakes than praise you for doing a job well done. My manager pulled me aside one day and told me she thought I was doing a good job but she said that she couldn't say it in...

    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...
