I go through my days where I oscillate between a general attitude of “oh today was interesting!”, “meh”, and days like today where I can’t WAIT to walk out the doors and go home. Almost everyone I know just sorta puts up with their job more or less because it pays the bills and, well, it’s a job! Especially in this economy. So where do you fall in regards to the job love scale?
Granted, I think I’m having a “hate” day because I just spent 4 glorious days not in the office with DH and I’m always in a weird mood when I take him back to the airport for another super fun stint of us being apart care of the US Army. And I just read this article saying that more than half of Americans are not satisfied with their jobs. Hmmm.

im very satisfied, but I still have those days where Im like “I CANNOT wait to run out this door!” I dont think it has anything to do with overall satisfaction, just boredom scale that day. Busy days are great! slow days, not so much. I feel your pain though

I didn’t vote because I like my job, it’s just not my dream job. My job is pretty easy; I am paid well and have good benefits; I generally like my all my co-workers; my husband works with me so we get to see each other a lot. I almost never have a day where I hate my job. I’m usually happy with it.
I don’t really find my work fulfilling, though, so in the next five years I would like to make a career change. Plus, I really don’t want my boss’s job, and she continually reminds me that she’s “grooming” me for that position. I’d rather get out sooner than wait for 10 years when she leaves and everyone expects me to take her place.

I’m having a few “meh” weeks I think! My job last year was really stressful, and I’m thankful that it’s slowed down this year. But it’s hard to be slower, at the same time. Leaves a LOT of time for surfing…which isn’t always good to do at work!
And I’m in a weird spot right now. My FI and I both worked for the same company for the past three years (at different locations for some of that time) and he got laid off in our last round of layoffs two weeks ago. I’m a little upset…but grateful at the same time to still have a job.

I have to say that I LOVE my job…. for two reasons. One – it’s not a bad job. Fairly easy overall, with some challenging stuff here or there. Two – I was laid off from a job that I hated back in April, and this job was offered to me in May, so I was so thankful and happy that I was getting a job that I have had this mindset of “I love my job” since then. And the best part.. I can check Weddingbee any time I want .
Of course I do have days when I would rather stay in bed, but who doesn’t? Especially after a three day weekend!

Well I am in a weird spot. I love my career, I am a nurse. However, I have 2 jobs in 2 different areas and I love one, hate the other. I work contingent in Pediatrics as a nurse, was FT but left bc I was offered a job where I am FT now at a nursing home. I have 35 pts all to myself, they are highly skilled and need a lot of rehabilitation. Its not an old folks home, its a rehab center. I love my schedule 12 hr shifts 3 days a week, nights, but….they have some of the laziest, rudest and uneducated nurses I have ever met. When I go there people that did not do their work during their shift gets left for moi and it then takes away critical time I need with my patients. Management is ignorant and there are so many polictal issues with insurance and them kicking people out because their insurance runs out ticks me off. I get sick going there. But the pay is too much and too beneficial to us. Now my pediatrics job I love and will pursue further with more education but I get excited to go to work there and come home happy, not exhausted and grumpy.

I love my job!! I feel very fortunate. I came from a difficult position and I could feel myself going through this whole transformation. I’m so much happier!

Most of the time, I love my job, but last week I was ready to quit. The stress was completely unbearable.
Post # 11
hate it! absolutely. hate it! Love the field- non-profit, but the job & organization makes me want to lose my mind! but I’ve had a few interviews in the last couple weeks for something new, so crossing my fingers.

I am somewhere in the range of “Meh” to hate. But most of the time it’s hate. Can’t WAIT to move away so I can do something else!

I think it’s really interesting to see the range of love/hate/apathy and what you do. I keep clicking everyone’s profiles =]
I think the lack of socialness is what gets me at my job! Everyone is old and a guy….if i had a friend to chat with occassionally I think it’d be a million times better! I don’t really know what I’d do that I’d *loooove* to do, though! Just can’t pinpoint what my perfect job would be.

I hated my job that I was in for two years and left one day by handing my name tag to my boss and walking out. He called and swore up and down “I would be back within a year” and I haven’t looked back. That was two years ago.
I really love this job..I take pictures for preschools and I love the children and I love photography. There’s stress bc you have to meet guidelines and directors can be a pain and unorganized. Some days children and rowdy and mean..others they are amazing! So it’s a love/hate kind of job with good days and bad 😀
Most of my co-workers I love working with–but most of the time, I’m by myself in my area which I cover. They allow me to travel to all over if I want which I also find amazing because I like to travel (even if it’s just me..tho they will pay for my fi to go w/out his foods if he could)
There is a lot of room to be independent and creative. I don’t have anyone looking down my back…so they do check in on us and we have conference calls..And our “conference” meeting is a great little vacation and so much fun 😀
But, I’m going to school for my career…and god, I hope I love my job in physical therapy..because that first job..taught me that I don’t have to be in a job that I hate..I can find another one and I will suceed in whatever I set out to be. I shouldn’t have let that boss run my life and my self esteem.

If I really truly knew what job I’d *love*, i’d be on it like white on rice! I think that’s my #1 dilemmna. As it is, I feel really bad complaining b/c i have a sweet job with benefits and flexibility and amazing pay. But hey, even my doctor last week was like, “oh i hate being a doctor” so I know it’s not just me sometimes =]
