did you ever have a job you hated? what was the worst job you ever had? do you like your current job? i had a job where i was asked to do more then my fair share of the workload and i received no extra for it this in turn made me hate my job to the point i had to leave cause it was making me not a nice person and i enjoy being a nice person and try to be nice to everyone has anyone else had a similar experience?

I don't remember having a job I positively hated because most of my jobs have been via contract and had a start and finish and then I moved on to the next one. I was never a regular job kinda gal until recently and I still only work part-time.

My first job may have been my worst one because it only lasted a couple weeks. I had a work permit because I was underaged and I was doing a sort of telemarketing gig asking people to give money for some Jaycees project. The place was run by someone unreliable and the office would be closed when it was supposed to be open so I only actually put in a few hours and I don't remember if I ever even got my paycheck.

when i first started that job i had just finished high school and i was still under 18 and also had to get a work permit the last thing i wanted to do was go back to the school to get a work permit i was so glad to get away from there. and at that point as i recall you could only work so many hours and then you had to take a break by law or your employer could get in trouble was only a couple months before i turned 18. i just remember that being a pain because i didnt care if i took a break or not.

I am not a person who love being in a room 8 hours a day or 5 days a week and whole year round, the staff, clerk kind of jobs, I have been with those kind of jobs for more than 5 years time and it did bore me, I can't grow on that I mean, I can't explore to something else. I am much comfortable with a job working with people on the field or being with the community or any job that would allow me to get into the lives of the people and not confineded in the four corners of a room would made me much better person. While it is still fair enough to work within a room but in a minimal number of hours and I am in charge with what time I should get there, like online stuff and being a boss perhaps of my own business (hopefully, in the near future).

I share the same sentiment. I got a job and actually stayed for only two weeks. I had to teach 8 hours straight, the salary is delayed and the boss didn't keep his promises. I had to leave though I love the students.

my boss would keep telling me i couldnt have a raise because i had medical insurance so at one point i told him he could cancel it and he said that he didnt want to do that he was always looking for ways to keep labor costs down.
