Following on on the ideal job topic..........
Just wondering how many of us there are out there who really hate our jobs?
I'm at the point now, where I hate it that much, I'm actually wouldnt care if they made me redundant/sacked me. I'd have no problem working in a shop at this stage.
I dont care what they do anymore to either me or any of the staff.
I really f-ing hate it. Its the management more than the actual work (although there is very little of that and I often wonder in the morning how the hell I'm going to make it through another 8.5 hours of doing Sweet FA). The management are two obnoxious, w*nky, demeaning, nasty, ignorant assh*les and they couldn't give a monkey's toss about the staff. They speak to people and about people like they are crap. I hate them.
I am the exact same at the stage now where i actually dread coming in and feel sick at the thought of it.
if they let me go could get the dole til i find something else but if i walked out would get nothing so feel trapped.
Hey girls me too - loved my job for the first 7 yrs and then after restructuring was sent to totally new dept,hate it so much - feel sick on a sunday night at the thought of coming into work - went back to college last year by night and trained as a beautician and qualified last week - i am doing small bits of beauty at home for people but not enough obviously to leave this job -i wish i was back in my late teens or early 20's before my son and mortgage etc cos i would have headed off for a year or two travelling and not be stuck in a job i hate just so i can pay my bills...thank god i'm not the only one
I'm dreading getting up in the morning and i know some people will read this thread and think you are all lucky to have a job...yes i am but my dh has been out of work for two years so I know what that's like! I thnk im just going through a stage at the moment and i'm sure i'll get over it...thnk i need a holiday
at the moment i'm not liking mine
Betty Boop - I'm exactly the same as you, cant afford to walk out, but if they sacked me or if I got redundancy, it would make things so much easier for me, cos at least the decision is out of my hands and I wouldnt feel guilty to Hubby.
Also, this is gonna sound selfish and lazy, but I've realised in the last while, i'm just not cut out for a position in management. I'd be perfectly happy just working in a shop. But i'm afraid of what people would say to me if I went into a job like that becuase I'd literally be on just under a third of what i'm earning now.....
I'm just not a very career oriented person - but I feel selfish for saying that :(
I think that we all go through phases of hating it, but I keep saying, how much do I love my pay packet, or better still, how much do I need it? much more than I hate the job that's for sure.

I don't love my pay packet at all (even when they pay me on time!). I am on a crap salary - I was made redundant from my previous job and really had to take this one but I'm now on just about half what I was previously earning. Its true, I do need it though.
I am not loving my job either at the moment, the thoughts of having to go back to work on a sunday evening is enough to drive me into despair.

Oh I hear that one, I am in a management position and some days I would love to just be able to go to work with no responsibility, no stress etc ( I know everyone has stress in all jobs but grass is always greener) but I cant fecking afford to drop wages, have two mortgages to pay so have to earn a good salary and because jobs/companies are so uncertain at the moment I feel trapped doing a job I hate
SSF - I'm sorry you were made redundant, I hope my post didnt come across as being ungratefull or anything.
I know everyone has phases where they hate their job - but I've hated my for the last year, is that a phase?
Ah dont mean to whinging and moaning, its just a horrible feeling knowing that your stuck and knowing nothing is going to change unless I manage to find a new job.
I'm looking all the time, so fingers crossed.
