Have you ever been on a job that you just dread coming to everyday I have . I feel like I just can't catch a break or everything I do is wrong . And I look for ways to improve but it's not enough I even tried to switch shifts and that's not working out for me .I even got desperate and tried to move positions but i have to have an appointment and approval for that to work. I doubt that will happened in my case .I just wanted more for me out of life then to be cleaning up after people and treated like crap i have feeling to.

After 8 months of applying to a lot of Admin positions I finally got a job! I was so excited. It's in a great area where I wanted to work for a long time. I'm so thankful and grateful for this job. God is good always. I was down to my last of everything and owed all my credit cards and bills. Before I landed this job I was homeless due to an amazing set of circumstances that I won't go into. Now you can understand how desperate I was for a job. However, since I've gotten the job which was in March, I've moved into a new apartment, caught up on some of my bills (not all and still have a long ways to go) and even managed to start a little savings account. Herein lies the problem. I'm totally and unequivocally unhappy in this new job. The job is great and my responsibilities are challenging but manageable. I started off working for 7 people and now I work for 12 people and with the same salary which is not much. However, the problem is my colleagues. They have their "clicks" and it's very uncomfortable. If I ask for any kind of help with a program or assignment, they go to the boss and tell him that I don't know what I'm doing. I try to join conversations, to no avail. I try to show myself friendly to no avail. I'm excluded from conversations (especially non-work related) there was a company outing and I went and boy did I regret it. We weren't allowed to bring anyone so I spent the time by myself. How embarrassing. No one even talked to me. When I tried to talk to them they were polite but made it clear they weren't interested in talking to me. I was in the bathroom and overheard the other Admins talking about me saying I'm not friendly and I don't talk to them! I'm at my wits end. I didn't get a job to make friends but it would be nice to have at least 1 person in my corner. I don't know what I did or didn't do. It's so uncomfortable that I'm seriously thinking of leaving but just can't afford to. Any advice?????

Worked lots of jobs ,physically and mentally.A sore back is much better than mental abuse even with less money!!! As long as your young and healthy give it the best you got.My 1st jobs as landscaper, meat packing plant,UPS delivery I gave it hell, it was my work out.The mental abuse came with public and management.I love most people but automotive business will wear u out.Pressures daily with numbers and surveys ur pushed to be a person u don't want to be!!! Constant mgmt changes and over-selling to keep lights on.I was very good for many years but to keep my job or have a heart-attack,thank GOD I early retired Before I had to change my personality to succeed!!!!!!!!!!

You really can't get where you are going if you don't see where you are. I started out as a teenager working my first job at Subway. Good people there, nice customers. Was it my forever job? No, but it taught me SO much. Don't put down jobs because you think they are beneath you. There is so much more to learn no matter where you are!

I work at Papa John’s in the kitchen and I always love the rushes when we’re making pizzas nonstop. Sometimes you feel like you were going to fall over but when it’d quiet down again suddenly that’s 2hrs gone and your shift is about to end soon. Sure I’m going home covered in flour but the night flew by and I feel like I put in some hard work. No better feeling.

If you have recently become unemployed and you are in "job search mode", expect to feel a roller coaster-ish set of emotions throughout your day/week: one minute, you'll be "high" from getting a phone screening interview scheduled and minutes later, you may receive a "no thank you" email and feel depressed. Stay the course. Keep the Faith. I recognize you need income and for many, working is closely tied to one's perceived value in life but you need to remember that accepting a job and working in an environment in which you are not valued or respected is very often worse than having no job at all. Hang in there. Persevere. Keep your Chin up!
