I feel the same way!  I work in a lab with about 65 people and I really only talk to a handful of them, mostly the ones I work directly with.  I try to say “good morning” and “hello” to everyone else when I see them in the break room, hallway, etc. and most of them just look at me like I’m retarted and don’t speak.  This would be why only about eleven people from work are going to be invited to my wedding.

I’m pretty lucky as far as this goes. I work for a small company that my brother and sister also happen to work for, so it’s pretty cool. The other guy we work with is nice enough, and the owner of the company is a very generous man.

Yep, for the most part… There is ONE person who I don’t think likes me.. She is not verbally rude to me or anything, but you can usally get that vibe when someone doesn’t care for you. Oh well, can’t get along with everyone.

i am incredibly lucky–my department has a huge number of junior staff all around the same age and they are all great. my moh actually used to work here, which is how we met! there’s lots of happy hours and stuff, it just makes everything so much better. in fact, the biggest guest list drama i think we’re going to have is deciding who of my coworkers to invite and how to avoid hurt feelings or awkwardness…!

on the other hand, fi isn’t friends with his coworkers outside of work, i think he gets jealous…

love them (probably because it’s my company and i hired them :D) before then i couldn’t stand a huge majority of mine. there was a racist idiot that sat across from me in my former job and the sound of her voice made me want to scream 😀

I absolutely LOVE all of my co-workers! It could also be that 99% of them are all guys, and I work for an automotive engineering firm, so there’s NEVER any drama and they’re all totally interesting!! However, at my last job, I could NOT stand anyone who worked there. It made going into work and doing my job miserable… It might be time for a change if you’re feeling this way. My FI noticed it ASAP when I switched jobs, the quality of my life was just enhanced tri-fold!! Good luck!! Kiss

I love every single one of my co-workers on a personal level. I can’t stand someones work ethic (or lack of), but I still think she’s an awesome person! For that reason, she only works once a week lol.

For the most part, we spend more time with our co-workers than we do with our own families. Rosie, I think you should look for another job (if possible). I couldn’t imagine working in a place where I couldn’t stand the majority of my coworkers! Life is too short to spend that much time with people you don’t like.

Haha it is just me and my boss, and occasionally his son helps us out when he has time. I love them! My boss is a really terrific (if super weird) person who treats me like his daughter. His son is my age and is super super nice. I really could not ask for better. I DO wish that there were a few more people just so I could have some coworkers to hang with… but thats a really small complaint.

I’m currently unemployed – my coworkers are all awesome! However, in the jobs I’ve had in the past, my overall satisfaction was very directly correlated with how many of my coworkers I liked. If you dislike that many of them, I can’t imagine that you’re happy there.

I really only have two bosses I deal with every day and they are great and then am a manager and so I think being the boss of 60+ makes it easier…I like most of them and most of them are nice to me 😉 haha I think they almost all like me but even if they don’t…can’t say much :X hehe just kidding I’m a really nice, get the job done but approachable boss (I think!)

Not at all, and my boss is the worst!  I feel like I can’t trust anyone there.  It’s sad because I feel like there’s only one person I can trust there, and they made it so we can’t work together anymore.  Can’t wait until I can find a new job!

I get along with 90% if the 60 workers were Im at… there a few I dont understand, but as long as I can work with them professionally I dont mind.

I have a job, where I can walk in and walk out and leave work at the door. Its handy, but the job is not originally what I hae been trained to do or particularly want to do. But that happens in life. I am waiting in august after the wedding to go after something I want to do, or create my own business.

All other jobs ive had its been fine!

NO, NO, NO! A million times – NO!!

I’ve always gotten along with my coworkers, even becoming (and remaining) friends with most of them. But this place is seriously weird… and so are the people.
