Sounds like you've been talking to people about that option :B
I'm sayin' nuffink!
My job has it's good and bad points. When i first started it was mainly good points but the bad points are now so large and encompassing that they're crushing me under their weight and I really struggle to get out of bed in the morning.
i dont have a job and i love it
I love my job, it's coming home to the missus I hate Nah just kidding, our lass is a good un!
I'm self employed now, but I have had some crap jobs in the past. The worst I had was when I was working for a local letting agent of 'dubious character'. His properties were right dumps, and me and another lad used to go in and tart them up every time a tenant moved out. The smack heads were always the worst, most of them used to leave the houses in a right mess, with needles and crap all over the place. We used to have to 'evict' them sometimes too, which was the upside of the job
Love my job, junior web developer
Slight problems at times, is the hours.. which range anywhere from 9 (typical day) to 24 hours a day, and can stack to last several days in a row to meet a deadline. S'great, we do get a full bathroom, shower, bath, toilets, kitchen, comfy chairs, large LCD screens, headphones, etc, to make several-day long shifts easier.
I absolutely hated my last job. Was an installed Tech / IT Admin for a 10 person security systems (CCTV) company. They ripped off all their customers and told them direct lies to sell their gear based on information they didn't even understand. The boss tried to be buddy buddy with all the staff and then when a customer would get wise to the scam would go nuts on us. He may have been bi-polar and mentally retarded at the same time with a hint of god-complex. I was expected to agree with anything he told customers during a sales pitch and then "make it happen" which was counter indicated in the operations manual. Good Riddance
New job is managing a help desk for a small banking corporation in the midwest consisting of maybe 100 branches or so. We use a web-based ticket system and 90% of our users are total idiots that seem to go directly against procedure just to get under our skin. The downsides of this job however are greatly outweighed by the satisfaction I feel when users are genuinely thankful for my assistance and when I put hard work into a problem that has arisen and perform a fix that works right away and to the satisfaction of others. Plus when a user doesn't maintain professionalism and becomes difficult with the us, we can use the system and set of procedures to not only shut them up but teach them a valuable lesson about being nice... as most of the time its a user error thing
I don't really have a proper job (completed studies, waiting for next ones to start), but I worked three weeks in a CD/DVD-factory. It was a chatotic place and not too bad, but the co-workers were driving me NUTS! The thing is that when there are six people from who two work like crazy and four are just sitting because nobody is telling them what to do, the two that are working are likely to get pissed.
I work Friday and Saturday 5pm to 11ish
I'm a dishwasher. The answer to the question is self explanatory.
tomorrow is my last day
I don't necessarily hate my job, more or less the way Im BS'ed out of my raises. And more or less that the company BS's people to work everyone else's areas (retail). With the billions that are made (and the millions that are given away) you'd think that they could pay you more, but they will continue to leach the workers, that I hate. But I dont hate my actual job, its interesting as I deal with people and photo equipment daily, and you see interesting places/things daily.
I have worked on many fields, so I like some jobs and hated very few jobs.
I love my job.
I think it is funny how few people said what they did, but said if they loved or hated it. Should I know what everyone does...did I not see the JOBS thread? or are others curious too?
Anyways, I definately have a love/hate relationship with my job. I am a dancer for Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. The work can be fun and fulfilling. And it keeps me VERY physically fit. However there are things that piss me off a lot. I just try to enjoy my time not a work, and find second jobs that are things I like and don't have to commit over long periods. I love carpentry, so I will take jobs now and then to help. The nice thing is I don't ever HAVE to take it. I also keep in mind that my options are open and if I get to frustrated I will change what I do (which I have been considering more recently). Therefore I think you were smart to try something else: good for you.
I'm on work experience at the moment, and i'm actually loving it
working on Halton Airfield, driving the tow tractor round the 'field, towing gliders, fixing things, Quality
I did have a proper job before though (sort of)
Dishwashing at The Chequers Inn, horrible, lower than minimum wage, working 'till 11pm at 15.
You do know that working at below minimum wage is (obviously) illegal?
And you'r point is what, exactly? One of the boats I worked on paid less than minimum wage, and that was a UNION job no less! When we complained to the union, they told us to shut up and piss off, so we called the state labor agency who essentially told us "It's only a little under minimum wagem if you don't like it go get another job". The lesson is that the only laws that matter are the ones anyone bothers to enforce.
It is illegal, but only if you meet the age for minimum wage
Still at School, alas
With a passion.
To be fair, its not the job per se, but more the management, and the odd member of staff here or there. I don't mind working where I do, cause I have no "additional sales/punch" to put on top like my last job. Absolutely *hated* selling punch - I used to manage 3, maybe 4 in a day, and that would be an awesome day for me.
Want to get into IT but no-one will take me on without that piece of paper that says "Joe knows about computers!"
I like my job quite a bit. I do a lot of networking projects at my local college and I really enjoy it.
The only thing I dislike about it is the slow days. Like it's fun to just mess around some of the time. But when it's really slow it's so boring and I feel useless not accomplishing anything.
Also I guess the redundant Windows updates are pretty boring too after the 5th computer you do.
But overall, I like my job.
