Some jobs blows..
Stay at home parent. I voted “yes”.
Nah, been doing roughly same thing for 21 years now. Mortgage should be done in 11 months and then I'd like to start looking at trying out other job options.
Very lucky, very grateful every day. Love my job.
I recently retired after 40 years in IT. When I started, loved it. But you start to see the same problems repeating, and new executives denying the solutions that experience has shown you will work. Endless meetings with these new executives spouting the same meaningless corporate talking points when the solution is simple - spend $. I told my son when he was starting his working life - make sure you do what you love even if it’s not hugely profitable, and find ways to make it more profitable.
I recently retired from a public school teaching career that I absolutely loved.
Simple Answer...Yes...I've been doing it for 40 years and I still like it. I'm good at it and the management leaves me alone to do it.
I like it most of the time.. It has it's sucky moments though..
I love my job.
Not really. I want to find better paying job in the near future. Right now I often have to use service no teletrack loans to pay off my debts. For me it's the only way to cope with all my credit card debts.
I'm overpaid and underworked.
I guess I can’t say I hate my job. I just hate the uncertainty of having a job a year from now. I work for as a financial analyst, and I’m home 4 days a week. I can basically set my own hours as long as there between 7 AM and 7 PM. I’ve been with this company for 5 years and or staff has dwindled since I’ve started, going from a strong 40-something to about 15, thanks to new excel/access tools being created to substitute some of the work, and other position being moved to India (whole thing has been a $hit show).
So do I like my job? Sure, it’s easy enough. Am I confident it’ll be around in a year? Not really.
