I am only force to love my job although I don't like it. I don't have any choice because I need job due to financial needs. If my contract will be finish next year I will find another job that I will truely love. I mind set my mind to love my job so that I can concentrate all my task everyday, I remember when I was still newbie, I always make mistakes because I don't like my job. After I learn to love my job, I did it well and because of that I receive a recognition from the company as Associate of the Month and Chairman Club award.

Well, in my case I don't really love the company but I do love my team. They're one reason why I'm still working for my current company. Don't get me wrong though. I love my job. It's just the pay that sucks .

I totally agree with this.. Everyone must love their job but not the company. I don't like my job right now and I feel bored every time. Hehehehe.. But I'm trying my best just for the experience and for the money of course. Soon, I'll find a better one in which I will find enjoyable. If you'll love the company, you might find it difficult to leave and why love the company where in fact, you will not get rich if you do.. The only one who will get rich is the owner. So, better, just love the work to stay happy. Hehehe

I don't know if I exactly agree with this. If you don't love your company,how can you love your job. Your job and the company are so closely related, it is hard to believe you can love one without liking the other.

A pleasant day to you Ritzz07, Indeed we should love our job. As this is one way for us to earn money. Aside from earnings, it is also from our job, that we are learning. Only there are times, we never noticed that. Thus, aside from the earnings that we get, we also learn a lot of things from our job. For these reason, we should know how to take care of our job and love it since we can get other things from it aside from the monetary equivalent of our service being given to the company.

I have never actually thought about this before, but I guess this is true - you should of course try and enjoy your job, and you are lucky if you are able to find a job that you truly love. But circumstances change, and you may not always be able to have a job at that company forever! So yes, this statement is then true - you should love your job but don't get too attached to your company!

Hey, if you really love your job, it is no longer a job. It's a hobby, a passion. Depends how you look at it, you can "love a job" that you lose sight of life. I think I prefer to love life. Love the company? I won't even need to go to this question, would I?

Humm well pretty good statement, but i think loving job will make us very hard to resist to fall in love for the company, say for example you working in Microsoft and you love the job of software engineer it will be obvious that you will fall in love with the company because of great nature and professional staff, but that's a good aspect in loving your company, as you said in your discussion, there may be also bad effects of getting in more touch with the company because you can get kicked out, if you are too lineant they may even take you for granted, and get you to do more work, so there are good as well as bad effects, but how we deal and what kind of attitude we have will surely give us the positive and negative results from the company.

Hi Ritzz, Well said! We need to have a passion towards our nature of work. Or else choose a job which we like. But loving a company is not necessary, as it pays you for the work and not need to be so attached.

Hi ritzz! I don't think the company will kick you out if it feels you are an asset and your loyalty is excellent. Honesty and loyalty are qualities that a company is looking for, but of course you also are effective and efficient with your job. I don't think the company will just kick you out without any deeper reasons, unless if it is getting bankrupt.

It depends by whoever said that statement. If you are being paid well with good benefits then there is no reason why you would love working for that company. We don't have such kinds of company here. There may be some pros and cons of working for companies. I do try to love my work though so that I won't feel that it is work.

This is every where.Always we should trust in ourselves and the work which we can or able to do.When we have the talent and do the job reponsibilities ,we can anywhere show the working abilities so anyone would love to employ.A company after sometime we may not like or have interest and sometimes the company doesnt like us.So its better we work and learn the work,do the work we like and we are able to ,so that in future if problem comes we can stand and look for another.There is no sure anywhere.Nothing is for us everytime and everyday.We should depend on us not on anyone else.

i am thinking that if you love your job, money will just follow.... have a business of your own while you are still on the power of your job position... you must take chances.... and by the time you're been kick out by your company.... you already have a money making machine.... and try to remember.... 9 out of 10 businesses failed.... therefore, you must start now in order to find out what is the best business that truly compatible to the likes and dictates of your brain.... whenever you fail, you are still on the position of your job in your company, do find another alternative new own business, until you find the most perfect for you.... it must be start today.... tomorrow? there is no tomorrow, only start today hehehe

I agree with this statement. I actually fell into this trap. I worked for the company for 11-years. Never missed a day of work. I was wrongfully fired by the Director of Nurses for a false report written up about me. I was never asked about this report. I was just sent packing. Sad thing is I would've done anything and did for that company and my boss. I saved them a lot of money. My brother works for the same company and told me they've hire 4 people to replace me. I guess they paid for wrongful firing me. I still would recommend this company to anyone. Best Wishes!

Hi ritzz07! "Love your job and love where you work at but not too much" That's what I personally think it is. If you love your job, you'll get motivated to come to work all the time and make the best out of you same as loving your working environment. If you love where you work at (location, facilities, stucture, collegues, boss, etc.), you wouldn't mind your shift whether it's too early or too late. "Not too much" - yeah, 'cause you'll never know if you'll be working at same place tomorrow specially nowadays where companies are having mass lay-offs. Just enough love and satisfaction with what you have for motivation. :)

Your point is correct. The company may not retain for all the years to come. Or you may not remain in the same company for all the years to come. Nowadays the existence of company itself is in trouble. so love your work. Whatever you are doing - including mylotting. then u will achieve greater heights

"Love your job but not the company you work for." That sounds fair to me. After all, like you said, you never know when you'll get laid off or fired from that company. Enjoy the work you do, but don't get too attached to the company. I love a certain type of job, retail, yes yes it's hard, but I've had other jobs and retail seems to be much easier for me.
