    I wouldn’t say that I LOVE my job but I don’t hate it by any means. It’s a great job.

    Depends!  Sometimes I hate it.  Sometimes I love it… or at least really like it.

    It’s Monday, so we are firmly in the “disklike” side of the scale at the moment.

    I definitely don’t hate mine.  I actually enjoy it okay, but I don’t get paid enough.  It’s okay though I’ve only been at it about 2 years so I don’t have quite enough experience yet to move up.  I do get a lot of vacation hours though, so I love that!  And I work mostly over email and share an office with one other person.  So most of the time I’m left alone…I like that!

    Love it! Sometimes I get stressed but that is normal. I like how fit and active it keeps me, my coworkers are great, my schedule varies so sometimes I get to sleep in and sometimes I get off early, and I am always busy. It really is the perfect job for me!

    I hate my job! But after the last couple years I’ve found that I really just don’t enjoy working in my field anymore.  Sad that I wasted 6 yrs in college to end up doing something I’m not happy with.

    Honestly, I don’t like my job but I’m transitioning to a new one, so hopefully I’ll like that one better. I’m always TERRIFIED to start a new job, because you never know exactly what it will be like until you start!

    We need an in-between option. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either. BUT ..I also only have 2 weeks left before I start my new job!

    I don’t hate my job, but I definitely don’t love it. It’s not what I want to do, will not get me to what I want to do, the pay sucks, and I’m getting totally screwed.

    @Sea_Ashley:  eh. the job itself sucks – it is super boring, and pays poorly. but, my boss is nice, the benefits are *awesome* and it has been a godsend to be able to plan my wedding at work. it also has a super regular schedule, strictly 9-5. so i’d say on a scale of 1-10 it’s about a 5.5.

    Hate it, and today is already off to a fucking lovely start.

    I have stomach ulcers and IBS and I never, ever, ever miss work. Ever. I have never called in sick, and have left early because of my stomach MAYBE twice in the past year, and when I did it was like 45 minutes early. My boss doesnt even know I *have* any chronic illness issues.

    So today, I woke up feeling awful, I cannot stay out of the bathroom. Despite that, I drive my hour to work and start powering through my assignments inbetween running back and forth to the bathroom every 10-20 minutes.

    So I shoot an email over to my boss saying that I’ll be done with my work within 2 hours, and *if* I’m still feeling bad, may I leave early.

    His response? “You ask to leave early alot.”

    Meanwhile, it’s 10:18am and two of my coworkers just walked in.

    I like what I do, I just hate the conditions that I do it in. My work environment is bad enough that its screwed up my mental health and I’ve had to go on anti-anxiety meds. I’m losing my job in two weeks though, so a change is coming hopefully for the better.

    I usually love my job, but there are always days like today that make me reconsider.  I actually just got off the phone with someone complaining that he didn’t know why he received an email from me.  My response: “Well, you emailed support@companyname.com with your question, and I’m a customer service rep who is returning your message.”  “I DON’T KNOW YOU AND YOU CAN’T HELP WITH MY QUESTION”.  Ok then…

    I do have many good moments with customers at work, but that is not one of them 😛

    Depends on the day.  For the most part I like my job but I can’t stand one of my co-workers.  She’s loud, obnoxious, lazy etc.  She’s older and close to retirement I just hope its sooner than later.  Once she’s out of our dept I will love my job more.  But its so hard to come in happy when I can’t stand her.  And there is someone on vacation this week so in our office its just me and her.  I just want to throw something at her sometimes.  It doesn’t help that I’m PMSing and extremely tired today.  I couldn’t go to sleep last night to save my life.  Even after taking 2 Tylenol PM which normally knock me out I was up until at least 3:30am and had to be to work at 8.  I think I got maybe 4 hours of sleep.
