are you loving your job? they say that if you learn to love your work, then you will never work at all. because you feel that everyday is a fun day, a stress-free day. well, sometimes, i love my job. sometimes not. maybe it is our boss? or what? anyway, i feel overworked sometimes, maybe i find my job as a workload not as a stress-free job. how about you? do you feel overworked?

Hi garybao! i used to have the same problem with you. The company is too free and the people have nothing to do. So i changed my job. It will be a good choice for you to change your job for your future. I am sure you will find some good job you love. Have a nice one!

well i just started my job and i really don't like the girl i am working with. she is supposed to be a team leader, but she has such a crappy attitude that i don't see her leading anyone.

you don't like your team leader? i can sense that the boat is sinking now. i think that will be a problem now. working all day with a person that you don't like. i hope you can handle your work day well. thanks for responding.

Yeah isn't that always the way? Why are the incompetant fools put in charge of areas of expertise in which they neither exude or practice. Welcome to the office.

My job is what it is. I work at a veterans home so I can interact with all of the veterans. I enjoy that part. However, every other aspect of the job (depending on what you are doing) is back breaking. I am on my feet for 8 hours straight so it gets a little tiring. Oh well, it's a job.

When i first started my job I loved and looked forward to it everyday, but the last 5-6 years of the job it became a daily grind. Now i'm retired, and glad of it.

I love my job about as much as I love having bamboo shoved under my nails. I work in a busy call center dominated by bureaucratic idiots and angry stupid customers. I feel stressed after my first few hours of being there. My time is micro managed to the point that I feel like a 3 year old. But there is a recession so I guess I am supposed to be greatful that I have one. I just can't lie anymore about it. I'm not. And am currently looking for other oppurtunities that don't want to make me poke my eardrums out.

My job is varied, so I don't mind it too much. I get to do several things so that it isn't boring, but it's not so challenging that it's stressful, either. I'm getting close to retirement, though, so I'm looking forward to that "job!"

I do like my job, but some aspects of it are stressful and make me feel overworked. I want to do a really good job. Yes, I do feel overworked, but also grateful to have a job.

Right now, i have two jobs and i love both of them... i work full time as an assistant to an old lady... it can be quite difficult dealing with her... but i manage because she lives in the city and the office is in the province... so i only get to talk to her throught the phone... my working hours are flexible so i do not need to wake up very early in the morning... My part time work is as a teacher in a community college... i go there 3 times a weeks so there is little pressure to meet deadlines... and college students are more responsible then high school kids... so i am currently enjoying my time there...

I would say in general I enjoy my job, although at times it becomes extremely boring and can kindn of be isolating because my office is not really close to anyone's, but it is the work thta I think I was meant to do, and it helps to make a difference in people's lives so from that perspective it is a good job.
