    I hate my job. The people I work with suck all

    joy from my day. I come home angry and stressed because I have to go back the next day. I really, really hate it. The people are lazy, incompetent liars with the personality of a cactus. My boss is married to her job. Literally. Thinks the rest of us should be too. She believes...

    I have one of those jobs

    where it's a really good and fun place but then people start quitting and what's left is incompetent people and lazy people who don't do their job, so now it's to the point where I have several stations to watch over which I find absolutely stupid. I should have quit by now. I...

    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...

    Few years ago I found myself overwhelmed with

    the mismatch between my real potential, the job I was in, and the promises of the people who were driving my career at the time. Total misalignment! However much effort I was putting in, nothing was fitting into place. So I got frustrated, confused, demotivated... And all these...

    I am really glad I do work at an office job. This has opened my eyes as to what type of job I DON'T want, and it's working in an office and sitting inside a cubicle. I don't know about you but, I am so tired of sitting up in a cubicle, pretending to work when I finish my work...

    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've been a Direct Support Professional

    for over two years now and I absolutely do not like it. Management is terrible, there's no where to go in this work environment, and the pay is pretty crappy, in my opinion, for the things we do. Honestly, this isn't the worst place to work. Most of the time we sit around...

    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...
