Do you hate your job?

Just curious to see how many people are in the same situation I am in.

I hate my job, but I like the money.

I can't just switch careers and do something I would enjoy and make the same, without having to go to school.

 

So, are you forced to stay at your job because of pay?

YES! I hate it. Admittedly, I am still at the job because of the pay but have plans to quit soon.

Re: Do you hate your job?

Lets just say I don't like my job, and the pay is up and down.

Re: Do you hate your job?

I love my job.  It's not exactly what I had in mind when I was younger (that is, I'm not the point guard for the Seattle Supersonics), but it's a good fit for me.

Re: Do you hate your job?

I like my job..any job there are parts that are not fun, but overall, I have always loved what I do.  I feel fortunate that I got a degree in something, and my career is based on that degree, and I do enjoy it.  It can be quiet (I am in an office of 1.5 people, I am the 1), but I do interact with a lot of people...my previous job was in a 80+ department, so it has taken time to get use to the quiet.  I make good money, good benefits.

 

That said, I am looking forward to retiring in 10 or so years.

Re: Do you hate your job?

I like my job, and the pay is very good, which almost makes me love my job in general. It's not what I would love to be doing but, these days, it's a blessing to have a job period, so I can't complain.

"I hate my job, but I like the money."  My sentiments exactly.  Just glad to have a job when so many don't...but I still hate it.

Re: Do you hate your job?

Seems to be 50/50 on the love/hate ratio.

I am kind of surprised, I figured more people wouldn't like their jobs.

Good to hear that people do like their jobs AND it has good pay!

 

I think at the end of this month I will be quitting and going back to what I love, but will take a big cut in pay. (close to 50%)

It might just force my other half to get a job, lol.

Love the work and the security but hate the poeple.  Nothing that a transfer wont solve though.

Love my profession, hate my current situation (ineffectual, evasive, untruthful manager) :smileytongue:
