I love my job but they hate me because I set the bar too high for the rest of the employees.

I'm both. I love what I do, for now, however with a side project that I am launching this year I hope it takes over as my primary. Then, I will LOOOOVE my job. I just keep plugging away at the current job long enough to get the other one going. I just hate the politics of my current company.

I hate what I do (to an extent, other aspects are fun), but I like the people I work with, so it's alright.

cant say that has happened to me lol i rarely do straight oil changes we have lube techs for that i only really do it when i choose to do it cause there is no work in the main shop side so i can try to get up sales. but what pisses me off is the advisors making more then i make when they dont have an education dont know jack and shit about cars they dont gotta pay a tool bill every week and continue their factory training some BS if you ask me but yeah like i said i dont hate my job i like working freely with no one down my neck leaving when the work is done but i do have those days when nothing is going your way and you ask yourself why you do this? hhaha

I don't know if I hate 'my job.' I'm a military doc - I hate what I'm doing currently (family-practice type) because I want to do ER. So the type of work I'm currently doing sucks. But overall I don't think I dislike my profession. And I work with some decent folks.

I can't change b/c my orders don't let me!

I'm so glad I joined the Navy so I can never work on a ship.

I have 2 jobs, like others here, love one, hate the other. Unfortunetly the one that pays the mortgage is the one I hate. Inner city school teacher. Hate it, been a teacher for 15+ years, pay is good but thats about all. Other job, white water raft guide on weekends and summer. Love it.

Been looking around for a possible career change. Envious of you guys that love your jobs.

I'm a full time student. It's a ridiculous job with no current pay, but I'm hoping the pay off at the end will be worth the effort.

My job is a job. It pays the bills and provides me with enough time off to do the things I really enjoy. I work 7-4:30 Mon - Thurs. Some customers are great, some are a pain.

My philosophy is, you should at least love the job you do, or the money it makes.
Some people are lucky enough to get both.
Lots of people have neither.

What is your job?

No official job right now but I'm hoping to become an RN with a BSN mainly because I have a passion for helping people, job security, and can't really see myself doing much else. My dad always told me that "If you find a job you like you'll never work a day in your life."

As of recently I can't stand my fucking job. I enlisted on the soul purpose of making prouder use of my time. That lasted up until about February this year. I need to deploy again so I can separate from the Army on a good note with $$,$$$ in my pocket. See you guys on the other side 23NOV13.

I love my job...and if someone tries to tell me their job is better than mine, I'll give them the finger because it's not true. I truly believe this. It pays for my house, my family and the stuff that makes me happy...and I have 7 fine men that would give their lives for me.
