    Just Upset That I Have To Work

    I was forced out of a good teaching career by our state's lousy economy - no money for non-required classes. I'm too young to retire, so I work at a hardware store. I'm back to teaching a couple classes each day, but still need the hardware store income for another 4 years.My...

    well for the most part I have nice co workers

    and get along with them. the job itself can be physically and mentally tiring, but its not too bad. the customers we get can be real idiots, also very rude. my manager is a nice and cool guy, but sometimes is very lazy. he even sleeps in the back while we are all working. I try...

    It's the Love Hate Relationship With the Staff

    Personally, I love my job!  It find it rewarding and at the end of the day, I hope I have made a difference.  There are those moments when I know the same people is going to ask the same questions, about the same things.  That's when I want to reach out and slap...

    I Am A Nurse

    There are so many things I can say here about the high points of my job.  I can help others in a very tangible way.  I can bring love and comfort to those who are without love or comfort.  I can help take away pain and promote rest.  I can be instrumental in saving lives...

    I consider myself to be a good employee.

    Always on time, deliver great service, etc. but when a promotion is available, I always get snubbed for the position. People who always call out, never show up for shift, or people who do a half *** job, always seems to be the ones to get promoted. Why is that?

    It's Killing Me

    I want so many thing in my life, that my job has made them disappear. I work hard. And because I am good at what I do, I am overloaded, and have a lot of responsibilities. But that has made me an isolated depressed person! I want to stay home and watch stupid soup operas from...

    I Guess I Need A Bit Of Encouragement

    My boss never appreciates my work, though I am the best he's got, and probably one of the bests in my field. I have closed projects that 3 big companies failed in doing them. Yet I didn't even get a thank you!?!

    Another Boring Day

    I went through the experience groups and only found "I had sex at work" and "I was naked at work". I should probably stick to the sex-topics. Or if I titled it "I screwed up at work" it might be on topic for them. But don't you worry, there's not a lot about work on this. But...

    I work at Starbucks. Most people think it would

    be the most amazing job ever. Honestly, it's not bad. But it's super stressful, the hours are ridiculous, and it's not worth the little bit of pay. Need a new job.
