I love my job! Well as much as I can “love” a job. I am a little burnt out right now just because I haven’t had anytime off since before Christmas. I am a manager in a high end tabletop/decor store.

I like my job, I don’t love it.  I work for a large non-profit organization in admin, and volunteer resources.  I have great co-workers though!  My real passion is to work with seniors, and I think we’re starting a new program in which I can work with seniors!!! I’m looking forward to that, so until then, I’m just liking my job.

I wish I liked my job, but I really don’t like it.  I hate being in an office, I hate sitting at a desk all day, and I hate not interacting with people.  I really wanted to do hair & makeup, but I went the practical route, and now I’m doing accounting.

I love my job (most of the time). I do research for a major university. I travel, collect data, analyze, present findings, and repeat.

Meh. I like mine in that I work for a lovely and generous couple and my coworkers rock, and I am able to spend a decent amount of my day on Weddingbee =) Do I make enough money? No. Is it fulfilling? No. Do I hate it? No. All of this equals being good enough for me until I discover what I want to be when I grow up.

I love my job. I work as a retail store manager at a prom dress store. Super high stressed and very exhausting  this time of year but totally worth it.

I really like my job. My boss is really great (which makes a HUGE difference IMHO) and the work keeps me busy and somewhat stimulated.

There are some drawbacks, of course, but overall I like it. I’ll have to move on from it eventually just because I don’t make very much money and there isn’t an opportunity for my income to ever increase substantially here.

There are days when I hate my company but I actually really enjoy my job. I’m an auditor for the corporate office of a major retail corporation. My job is to basically deal with all of the sales that are processed in our stores. I also investigate loss prevention issues involving our store personelle (and sometimes even other corporate employees – thats LOTS of fun!). You wouldn’t beleive how many people think they can get away with the stupidest things. It makes my day to get them fired. I actually got someone fired on Christmas Eve a few years ago. The timing was a little sad but he was stealing from the company so the guy deserved what he got.

Love my job… physician here.  I do, however, recommend 2 solid weeks of vacation each year!

I like my job. I used to LOVE it but changes in management have changed that.

I do fundraising for a non-profit/ I’m the office manager. At times, it is a very thankless job but I get the bonus of fundraising for the most amazing kids ever.

I work in commercial insurance on the underwriting side. There are days where I wish I could never come back and there are days were I am happy with what I do. But if there wasn’t any trouble spots in any job I would feel bored and not challeneged enough.

I went back to school for a medical field career and yes I do love it!!!!!!!! I was hating the jobs I got after graduating college 2 years ago, so I decided to switch it up! Its scary but everything falls into place and is exciting when you find what it is you really want to do career wise, Goodluck!!
