Hi.
I'm sure this is not a new subject, but I want to know if I am the only one who despises their job, or if it is a widespread occurence (?).
I like what I do, but I have no respect for anyone with any authority in the company I work for. My manager is constantly attacking me and using me as a scapegoat. Well, I could go on...
Is your job something you do just to survive and nothing more?

Hated the last place I worked.The owners son was the manager, and he would come out on the shop floor call us all idiots and throw things.It was almost a relief to be laid off.

I hated my last job and even though I've been out of work over a year, been through hell and back with family illness, lost my financial stability, and am starting to lose my emotional stability... I honestly would NOT go back to that position. Leaving was the right choice at the time.

- definite Medicaid/Medicare/insurance fraud, told by management to "be creative" with my billing

- was recruited for one position, turned it down, was offered another position, accepted, showed up, signed papers, started work and was told they filled THAT position internally and assumed I'd take the original position instead, i agreed on conditions that I'd only have a small caseload, by day 2, I had a FULL plus caseload

- i worked 60 hr weeks for 15 k less pay than my previous job with clients who were used to being able to use their time with me for things other than billable services with NO help from the transferring therapists and with treatment records needing updating for EVERY patient due the first two weeks of my work


The people, despite that one lazy therapist, were incredibly nice and kind and I erally think it was only the owners/upper management who were so dysfunctional. I left with them owing me half of my earnings. They gave me a bad reference one time (said they wouldn't rehire, ha), and I wondered for a while if maybe that's why I couldn't get another job. I started leaving them off of my resume. It was such a short time (8 weeks) anyway that it really added no new skills to my experience.

Anyway, yes, I hated that job, I would literally be driving home singing "I HATTTTTE my job, I HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE My job"

etc, etc.

I rather enjoy what I do for the most part. Some days I get totally mad about stupid, moronic people (be it customers or coworkers), but mostly I can just blow them off.

Charles, are you referring to my grammatical structure? I was in a huge hurry when I started the thread. Philosophically, I'm not suggesting we all declare that we all hate our jobs. What I want to know is that I am not the only one. I have to stay in a job where I am continually debased because I must pay our bills. It would be comforting to know that other people are in the same predicament. I fester about how much I hate my job, but then I imagine that surely I am not the only one.

No, not the grammar.

It is unhealthy to be in a high stress environment. Stress is very unhealthy. I suppose not having a job is more stressful than having a high stress job.

Be grateful you have a job....many don't. And there are probably 50 people in line ready to fill your job should it become available.
