    I Dread Going In Everyday..

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I got in so much trouble today at work

    but dude it's not like I can do anything about the customers order when it's seconds away from finishing. How the hell did your impatient, stupid *** become manager? Sure you can manage things but your attitude needs to go. Leave that ****** at home. I'm tired of his ***. He be...

    Been at the same place 25+ years.

    My boss is so rude and full of herself. She used to be nice to me, pretend she liked me. Now she won't even say hello to me...she will go to the office right beside mine--be basically standing in front of my door and my desk faces my door--and won't bother to say hello or...

    I hate my manager. He's an old ******* idiot

    who ***** up people's schedules, is too cheap to buy or replace supplies and equipment, and has unrealistic expectations. I hope someone replaces him soon, before I find another job at least. I hate that little funky, raggedy-*** store. I can't wait to find another job.

    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...

    Where I work we are not allowed to call out,
