Do your work ever get appreciated?

I have two jobs. One I work at Monday through Friday, 8 hours a day. My friend and I work the best we can, and we work hard enough for every assignment we assigned. We even pick up the trivial work that are not suppose be our jobs. But our supervisor never appreciate our hardwork. We always be the victim of blaming and accusation. Sometimes, it wasn't even our fault. We couldn't defend ourselves, and we must accepted it as it is. At the same time, some people who was too lazy to work, just get a pat on the back. While at my other job, it is a part - time job. I also do everything, even taking order from customers. I always got yelled at. I felt like that I never get appreciated for my hardwork. That is not fair, but I couldn't express it. Because no one would care. Have you ever encountered the same situation?

I know this feeling and we're on the same boat. I also work from a firm more than 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. Then if your lucky enough, your boss will approached you and tell that you need to take overtime to finish the job. If your project really in a hurry, they will require you to work in weekends and even holidays. Every day, your giving your 110% of your capacity to do multitasking jobs and exceed your daily deliverable and you always update your superior about your daily status report. Then by the time there is an performance appraisal, it seems your superior is the one who get credit of all the hard work that you've done and you that one who spend more time and takes more stress in this project did not get a single thanks. And when you tell that in your superior then they will eventually cannot give any comment about your hard work. It ended up that I did not get promoted and the one who gets promoted is my superior. Anyway... It seems that all employees on a company have passed on this kind of situation as ours...

I know the feeling. Sometimes when you do everything you can in a job you actually love, a nasty boss can ruin it for you. I am one of those people who would really resign from a high-paying job if the working environment is not conducive for work! I mean why should I be even working for an employer who don't respect me as an employee. Sure the wage may be high but if my work remains unnoticed or I get no validation for it, it still makes me feel empty.
