I love my job but I wish my income was more stable. Lots of peaks and valleys. Patty *ETA* I should add that it can be rather stressful at times too.

I like my job for the most part.
I just don't like all of the people I work for and or with!

There is only one God and I don't think he'd be wasting his time working here!

My job is AWESOME !! (I don't mean to gloat, but I love it. Really good colleagues too - one of the very best places in the entire country if you are in my field).

Unfortunately, I may not be allowed to keep it. I should know the answer to that in about a year and a half. Fingers crossed !!

I absolutely loved my job. I was the Manager of a Training Department.

But now that I'm retired, I like this one even better.

We need a choice that is middle-of-the-road. I don't want to stay in this job forever, but for now it's enough to pay the bills as I go through college. I work at a cafeteria next to the building where I take all my classes, doing various jobs different days. $7.23 per hour (including 20% bonus) and free meals. Good enough for now, and much better than when I used to work at Kroger and get $5.85 an hour -$5 per week for union dues. That work was also incredibly boring. Now I get variety and I get to move around, and it takes five minutes to be ready for class.

When your job involves dead children, it's a little awkward to talk about "liking" your job...

But I believe in the program I administer, find the work fulfilling, really like the folks I work with, and find my duties an excellent fit with my education and experience - so you could say I "like" my job as much as would be appropriate...
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 10:30:33 AM EDT
The only reason Im working here at my old dealership is because they begged me to come back and help after they couldnt find anyone to do my job(parts counter) .

The mechanics get on my nerves every day.

Customer's(1/2 cant speak english)dont know exactly what they need and like to try to blame me.

Service adivisors are dumbasses.

But I couldnt leave my 2 friends hanging without help. Beside its only for a few more months before they sell this place I'll hang around.

I really like my job (IT Field tech) but the corporate climate has really changed over the years. They use to treat everyone fairly now where in shit on mode. They don't gain anything from the worker by being like this. I really feel I worked harder for them before than under the new Hilter management way of thinking. They want everyone to feel uncomfortable. I really laugh at this and just don't give a shit like I use to. They pay me for 40 hours and I give them 40 hours, not a minute more. If they want to have me work for them 20 more years great I would be happy to. If they fire me tomorrow that's OK with me also. Work / job is not the center of my life. Wife and kids come first!

Overall If I win the lottery I would not walk on them. I would have them get my replacement and ask them when they want me to walk... Right after I tell Hilter to go screw himself!

+1

that is one of the major issues i had that led me to quit my last job and seek another career.

lean manufacturing is bad but the excutives and management that it draws in are even worse.
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 4:41:46 PM EDT
I love the job itself but the micro managing, and incompetency of management from the 2nd level to the president of the company is becoming unbearable. Very few if any of them have any telephony experience and are nothing but number crunchers. Don't know or care how those numbers are generated as long as unrealistic projections are met and they get their bonus they are happy.
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 5:18:52 PM EDT
I like it, but I wouldn't do it for free. The pay is pretty good. But then again, they don't pay me for what I do, they pay me for what I might have to do.

Some days, its for the love of the job. (usually when traveling to various things)
Other days, its only for the money. (when my one coworker is being a jackass)

The stress is not worth the money.

If all I had to do was fix things and make a few machine improvments here and there I'd be fine.

But frankly I'm F'n tired of hearing about "continual improvments" "cost downs" "lean manufacturing" "$1 a day labor in China" "cost savings" "steel surcharges" "inventory reduction" "days on hand"

I can go down the road a few miles for about a $2 an hour pay cut and leave all that shxt behind, but I have got my self soooo, used to working overtime I can't afford to leave right now...

keywords: "Right Now" things will change. Abandon Ship, Iceberg dead ahead!!!

I work as a surveilance operator in a casino. (the eye in the sky thing) It's cool somtimes, boring most of the time, but I work with this guy that was in Nam for a couple of years, and he tells me all the dirty little secrets of combat to me, to pass the time. Yesterday I learned about booby traps, and I cought someone marking cards. Its a neat job, but I want to move into VIP security, after I'm done with college. The private sector is were the real money is, and my gun addiction requires lots of money.

I've been doing what I do for 26+years, the last 19+ at the same company I now work for.

It's been a 30+ mile trip, each way.....Rain, Sun, Snow, or Ice... or here in Michigan, ALL OF THE ABOVE!

It's been a tough, thankless, underpaying, unrewarding 19+ years.......

I'm a senior Electronics Tech at an Automobile OEM supplier of Electronics, Wiring, and Instrumentation(< this is what I work on).

My department is being moved, again (My 8th time moving it!), to our North American headquarters across the road.

I'm dreading every moment of it. It's a den of backstabbing, clicky, Jr. high school like, office politics, where I get to go buy, and wear dress clothes, just to do electronics repair on dirty Instrument Clusters.


I just want to do My damn Job, get paid reasonably, and go home!

I've had to, quite literally, rebuild this damn thing 7 times, from scratch, unassisted. The old "Pull Yourself up by the Bootstraps" kind of rebuilding.

We were told each time, by the "Manager of the day", "This is the last time you will ever have to move!...No! Realy!...Why Are you laughing?!?"

Our "New" "work space" is Our current space(2600sq ft.) - 1000 square feet, split into 3 rooms(that are nowhere near each other) and we have to "Share" a good part of it with another department.

We are to be totally moved in by next Monday. The final bit of stuff is to be moved this Friday.


We have had to do 95%+ of the physical moving of Our equipment Ourselves.


A good portion of this "New" space isn't even cleared out for us to put our stuff into.

And the real Topper!!!!!
Today I learned that My job will cease to exist before the end of the year(The boss let it slip out.).

WOW! I've got a whole 3 or so months before I'm totally screwed!

Ah! Company Loyalty!

But Hey! This Friday I get a free overdone burger, flat pop(soda), and a big 2oz. bag of greasy chips so that they can so how much I mean to them!

I think I need a Drink!..........No...Leave the bottle!
