    The job I currently have is much higher stress

    than anticipated. Also, my manager keeps randomly changing my schedule and it's killing me...also, I live so far away from it. I need a job in town but it's near impossible to find one, especially low stress. With my wage, I don't even make enough for my gasoline to and from my...

    I hate my job. It is soul destroying.

    I try to put my head down and get through the day but it's hard. I would love to find a career to aim for but I have no idea. Years of soul searching has come to nothing.

    8 hours a day, 6 days a week,

    2 days off per month, no lunch break and no additional benefits. I think is slavery. Minimum wage; only unemployment could be worse

    Getting Really Frustrating

    I've been applying for a new job since winter with no luck. I finally thought that I might have had some luck last Monday, because an employer called me to see him on Monday morning. I woke up early and got there and he wasn't even there! I got stood up! I waited for an hour and...

    I dread going to work!

    It's so difficult to even get out of bed to get ready. It's such an easy job but all the employees are full of drama and negativity and I just can't stand it! I'm always anxious on my days off because I worry that I'm going to get called in and I just hate it so much!

    I've been working at a job

    for 20 years that I never liked. The money and benefits are decent. I've been scared to leave the job because of the fear of not finding a job with the same level of benefits. I put security of this job above my hearts desire. Any thoughts?
