you sound really capable. Good luck finding something else where you don’t have to deal with this crazy!

I had to look at your location because for a second I thought you were working at the same shit hole where I used to.  I hope you get an offer from one the places where you’re interviewing.

So sorry you’re going through this situation. I’ve worked at unstable jobs before, and it is a nightmare. I hope you get another offer and can find a healthy work life.

I’m sorry your work place isn’t appreciating your hard work and skills. It’s so annoying when the people around you just can’t do that cause they’re so wrapped up in themselves. I hope you can find somewhere that can appreciate your great work ethic.

Wow I am so sorry! Vent away…it sounds like you are doing everything right though. Just hang in there. It’s so much easier to find another job (even in this economy) when you are working in another job. I totally get how it affects EVERYTHING else outside of work when you hate what you’re doing, hopefully your Fiance understands where you’re coming from and that you’re working on changing the situation. 

Hugs…and best wishes on your coming interviews!!!

If you are doing the job of a second person I think you need to be paid more. I would schedule a meeting with the decision maker and calmly and rationally explain that you are doing that guy’s job, plus your own and expect a resonable raise to make up for the extra work (at minimum his old salary, but don’t start from that place). Good luck and try to get out of there whenever you can!

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeikes. Your boss sounds like someone who should still be in high school, learning how to handle their ‘feelings’……not managing other  people in a professional(?) environment.

Hope you get a great new job, and SOON!

Wowsers….don’t you worry I had a very bad 2010…I had 3 jobs that year….so don’t feel bad about the length of time you have been at this job. If a job really wants you it won’t matter how long you were at a previous job….my last job of 2010 was roughly 3 mths long…I got laid off…and I could never be happier….in hindsight it was the best thing ever for me…don’t fret and good luck on your interviews!  Please keep us posted!

Clusterfluck, no management, no process, 100% subject to their whims, no interest in replacing people, looney bin….wow…are you sure we don’t work together? lol.

I swear this sounds EXACTLY like my job. Except my boss doesn’t like confrontation and let’s people get away with everything, while the rest of us end up doing 3x as much work at their expense. Also, at exec meetings she loves to volunteer our office to do more and more crap. Othwewise, she’s a great lady. lol. Also, my job description is never ending…and I want to spoon my eyes out with paperclips the whole time I’m there.

I work in health care as well, not developing tech. though, administrative stuff.

I know this is terrible, but I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER KNOWING I AM NOT THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD WHO FEELS THIS WAY.

P.s: Be grateful your corporate’s HR department doesn’t lose the entire company’s files and has to “re-hire” everyone all over again. This happened 2 months ago, and I ended up getting 4 PPD shots because they lost the results.
