Do you actually like your job? - Page 2

post #31 of 45
I have a love hate relationship with my job. There are days where I want to rip my hair out and quit, but then I have days that are amazing. I just have to learn to take the good with the bad and know it all evens out in the end.

I really really like my job I work in a CICU (Cardiac Intensive Care Unit). I am a nurse extern working under a preceptor RN--which basically means that I do what she usually does while she supervises me. It's really highly stressful but so rewarding when you see someone get well enough to leave the unit.

I always wanted to be a nurse- but I could never handle the needles or stuff like that! I always wanted to work with the little babies!

I really do enjoy teaching, and i am considering going to university to get a qualified for it! But unfortunately over here I'm working as a freelancer which means i dont have a fix salary every month! and i have to get certain things sorted out!

I absolutely LOVE what I do. I'm an RN surgical first assistant, which means that I help the surgeon actually do the surgery. I cut, clamp, tie, suture, etc. I've been working in the same O.R. for 20 years this fall. The only thing I hate is the hours (....and the politics.) I was on call Friday. I went into work at 6:30 in the morning Friday morning, and went home at 2:40 in the morning, Saturday morning. Saturday was my 48th birthday....I slept pretty much all day. I feel like I'm getting too old for that kind of schedule, but they only let you go off the call rotation when you turn 55. Only 6 years and 364 days left!

I like my job about 70% of the time. I have been working at the same spot for 15 years, have had several promotions, and make very good money. That is the upside to it and that all makes very happy. However, with every upside there is also a downside and in my case it is the people I work with. I coordinate a staff of 35 and also deal with three department heads that coordinate there own staffs of 20 people. I have heard every excuse there is to hear, on every subject pertaining to work. Most people I have found are honest, fairly hard-working and willing to take responsibility for the tasks assign to them...but the few that aren't can make things pretty stressful. And in the end when it doesn't work out with these people and you have to let them go it is entirely your fault because you don't share there vision how just how unfairly life is treating them...I sure there are a few people out there who consider me the Wicked Witch of The West....but hey I worked hard over the years and my Broom is fully paid for..

Things I don't like about my job: I make minimum wage, I am considered temporary/seasonal until I've been there a year, they keep cutting everyone's hours, I have to be at work until 10:30 pm almost every Fri, Sat, and Sun...

Things I do like about my job: Playing with books all day, really knowing how to do my job and where everything goes and is, helping the customers who are nice (almost all of them), being in the department that everyone wants to be in, and we just got brand new computers!

Oh! And I have a manager who is not very fun. He asked me if I knew where he could buy weed once, he started giving me a backrub, he talks about extremely extremely inappropriate things with people who barely know him, and he has an opinion about EVERYTHING. Not just he's opinionated, but every word that comes out your mouth is wrong or something. Somebody did an impression of him last night, saying (about a black coffee mug) "Well, you could call it black if you want to, but actually it's a combination of red-486 and blue-27 invented by Alfred Hoppenshotenson in 1896, but you can call it black, I mean, it's wrong, but you could say that" The guy argued with me about my own sister's career. But mostly I can just laugh at him.

I've never stayed at a job I didn't like!

I don't like my job but I was almost 49 and about to be laid off. I am grateful to have found a job that pays enough to live on and has benefits.

I don't mind my job most of the time, its just the team leaders I don't like. They don't care if you get injured (I have carpal tunnel and they keep putting me on tasks that make it worse )

But I am a student, studying towards a degree in Applied Science and so I need that job while I am studying as it suits the hours I am on. But it does take me away from my son.

I have been keeping my eyes open for another one.

I hate my job...right now. I have been working at the same place for almost 8 years, waiting tables, and I am tired of dealing with grumpy people! I will graduate next spring, and hopefully will get a job soon being an x-ray tech. I might do CT or MRI. I can't wait! I actually start doing 40/hr week clinicals this week!! YAY!!

No, I don't get paid for clinic. That part sucks a little, but it will be so worth it next year!

I LOVE my job... The big issue for me is about SOME of my co workers. They can be a REAL PAIN in the

One co worker CONSTANTLY complains that I do not communicate enough with her and others no matter what I do.

Second co worker likes to be center of attention and doesn't like the fact that my program is a VITAL part of the department therefore he has to answer to me at some times.

I used to get upset and took it personally whenever they'd complain about me but now I have learned to let their "snide" comments roll off my back and just keep doing MY JOB which I know I do a good job of!

So, now you know where your tax dollars go. So, some employees retire, find out they have $30,000 in an account they didn't know they had.
From working in the government I have found that it really is true that the higher up you are, the less work you do, and the more money you make. Unfortunately I'm at the bottom.
