I Hate My Job

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,032 People

    My job is so boring and it's not a real career.

    I am almost 30 years old and I still don't have a real career to speak of. I've hated every job I've ever had and feel as though I'm wasting my best hours working for the man. I suck at my job, I am a fraud and I can't motivate myself to do better. In this economy forget about...

    So I'm not going in today.

    I spent all night waking up every hour or so with anxiety about going. So I quit.

    The Customer Is Not Always Right!

    Retail should not be the living Hell that is. I'm not an unintelligent woman. Regardless of what our society may believe. It is true that if I had it to do over. Yes..I would have continued my education. Per sued other avenues. That being said..I want to say this. The people that...

    So, I'm so frustrated with my job,

    is the worst job ever, it affects me phychologically and physically. I work at a call center. I live in a third world country, so, it's cheap for american companies to put call centers there so someone makes the dirty job for half the price, and from our perspective, what we...

    I Dislike Being Not Appreciated At All

    I do not hate my job per se.. I hate the fact that there is no structure to my organization and that I am made responsible for duties that were never explicitly or implicitly assigned.. Seems like I am the only one who works at my job.. everyone comes there sits around and...

    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 hate my job so much

    that while I'm working, I think about what the most sensible way to kill myself would be. I am very grateful that I HAVE a job, in a city with very few jobs. But I absolutely loathe this job. My last job was boring, but I didn't hate it. It was a way to get by, and it was good...

    I used to like working in retail (as much

    as you can like it) and when I first started my job working for the retailer, it was actually pretty fun. It was busy most of the time because we had big sales going on, causing them to need more employees and risk a chance hiring someone who has no prior work experience (aka...

    This morning I told my boss

    that I got stuck, and I'd let him know when I got out. Which is true. I just failed to mention that my car is stuck in my driveway, and that I'll get it out after breakfast and maybe lounging around the house for an hour ;)

    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...

    You know it's time to quit your job

    when you have to literally drag yourself out of bed in the morning just to show up for work because you have to. But once you're in the office, you can't wait to go home and be done with the week. :(
