What were you?
Los Angeles County Sheriffs Dept...... I worked in the jail. Most turn a little green when they learn where I worked.

I don't necessarily hate my job, but I know I'm capable of more and am unfortunately kind of stuck in my field because I never finished college. It's a decent field, but I have no desire to retire in it...too much stress and not high-enough pay. As soon as I can get over my fear of going back to school while working full-time with two small children (I already get so little sleep!) I think it will become more of a means to an end for me, and will stop being so stressful since I'll know I'm working toward bigger and better things. I always say that if I were to win the lottery, I would quit my job and actually go back to college full-time. Even if I didn't have to work, I still want that degree.
I also work for a municipality, so the constant fear of lay-offs always looms near.

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?
It is at those trying times that I try to visualize all of the thing that I love that my job affords me.....after all, none of us actually work for money. We work for what money buys us, now or in the future. I have found that when I think of what I love and my family loves and the opportunities that my pay provides, then it makes my job more palatable. But judging my work on its own merits of joy, no I can't say that I love my job.

Job?! What's that?
I did like my job, when I had one!

I like my current job but I preferred my first job. My first job was as an Auto Tech doing driveability and electronics. I loved the troubleshooting part of the job but they don't pay Auto Techs to troubleshoot so I couldn't make any money. Now I work as an Electronics Tech / Operator. Most of the job is operations but they pay Tech wages. I don't like the operation side of it I really just want to do troubleshooting and repair work but not enough call for that. Most of the people I work with a great and the pay is a lot better than anything I could make as an Auto Tech.
