Has a job ever changed your attitude?

August 11, 2008 8:11pm CST
I have worked for the same company for the last five years. I have transfered departments once (Climbing the coporate ladder) I moved from one of the field offices to head quarters. I have found that since the move people are just evil. My manager is a real piece of work, she plays favorites recently she and her boss decided I was did not deserve the promotion for the job I have been doing for the past seven months. Som instead I have been booted from my station to a desk on the floor. I tend to keep to myself and do my work like a good little worker bee. I understand that the world is a cruel place but it doesn't have to be. Lately I have found my attitude changing and my thoughts are negative. I recall being at this point when I worked fast food. Doesn't seem any different in the corporate world I'm still picking up someone else's trash. I am doing my best to remain positive

I can know what you feel. My dream is going to be a teacher of my major. But now I was forced to be a teacher of my loath major. Most times I can't feel I am real. I lose my ambition about my job and I feel I am so upset. In the past, I treat my dream with my whole heart, however, now, I can't do my part to finish my teaching job. It's a sad thing, isn't it?

Yeah it is sad, you work hard only to see others rewarded. Never stop dreaming though, it's what keeps us youthful!

I understand how you feel, my attitude changed too, after they put me on the graveyard shift, with no say so in the matter, they lied, said I had the least senority which, I don't and know I don't. I just said the heck with it, I don't want nothing from those creeps, but my paycheck, I don't want no company dinners, no bithday dinner, or cards, nothing they have to offer but my paycheck. I have come to the conclusion that the Motto: is MANAGEMENT DOES WHAT THE H%% MANGEMENT WANTS TO DO. Even the supervisors said that they don't understand it themselves.
