I Have a Love-hate Relationship With My Job

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 51 People

    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?

    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!?!

    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.

    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 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...
