I realize that is a huge generalization, and there are a few who are hard workers with a strong work ethic, but mostly, it's a thing of the past. The thing that really frightens me is....these are the individuals who will be taking care of ME in my golden years. YIKES!!!
Boy - ain't it the truth!
I absolutely hated
my last job (retail). Most of the peeps I worked w/ were cool (with a few exceptions), but the company sucked, and most of the customers were jerks, too..
I LOVED the job I had prior to that (before moving out-of-state), which was a customer service rep for a catalog company.
Towards the end of it though, it was beginning to get to me, b/c a bigger corporation took over the company, and then it started to go downhill after that. Too many company kiss-butts were in charge, and it got to be all "money, money, money - make us more!" instead of being the customer-friendly/employees matter kind of company that it once was..
And I also loved the job I had when I was working at a food bank, but I ended up leaving that one b/c the boss-lady turned corrupt, and wanted me to "cheat" the bookwork by transferring the bank funds into account where they didn't belong (I was working in the office). I reported her, and she was later brought up on embezzlement charges and fired..
I'm no longer working now due to a deteriorating spinal condition, and I miss working..
