Anyone hate their job? almost everyday i wake up and literally dont feel like going to work and i think about pulling a sickie! but who's gonna pay the bills?!?! money doesnt grow on trees as the saying goes. I hate the managers at my work u cant even reason with them like u would do a normal human being all they care about is profit nothing more and nothing less:( to make things worse i wanted to have 4 weeks holiday in march and the manager turns round and says to me you are only allowed a maximum of 3 weeks in a row wtf?!? these are my holidays which im entitled to take when i want!! but then a girl from my department goes to the manger & tells him she wants 4 weeks off around about the same time as me and the manager gives her the holidays no problem this is what u call favouritism to cut it short my job sucks!! bigtime

No I love mine. Its well paid and I am on a PC at home some of the time..Other times I am all over the country visiting people...Life couldn't be so sweet
#2
What is it you do ?

Maybe look for a new job? But don't leave this one before you get one or you will kick yourself ;-)
#3
sorry to hear that. where do you work?
ask the manager for a leave again and say why has she been allowed to?
maybe a diffrent manager allowed her holidays?
#4
i consider myself very lucky to be in a job that i love with really cool workmates and a sound boss...
But know how you feel as i've had some proper rubbish jobs in the past, stick it out but get looking for something better,

Hope things get better :)

Didn't like mine 12 months ago, but then I got a promotion!

It's kinda sweet now as I have the freedom to do whatever I want, how I want as long as I delivered results on whatever project I'm given. I generally have about 5 projects on the go at once and I can chop and change between them whenever I get bored!

Researching projects on the internet is great!! :)

I wish I could get one! I have been an house husband for the last 6 years and loved it but it is now time to get a job again.

I must have applied for over 60 in the last 12 months and had only 2 replies and no interviews. All have been low paid warehouse type of work as I am basically unskilled and worked in a warehouse previously. I am 39 and dont really want to do warehouse work again as I hated it at the time. I just do not know what else I fancy doing or I would get some training or study. I have always been the same and never known what I want to do lol.

I think I am being penalised for being off work so long even though I have not been unemployed or claimed anything and I have deffo not been lazy as as well as seeing my lad from a new born to a six year old I have done every other job in the house. My wife has only had to work only which is the way it should be when the other is at home.

You may hate it but dont do anything rash:thumbsup:

No harm in enrolling on a course and getting some more qualifications if you feel you are unskilled....... plenty of oppertunity to learn a trade or gain skills that an employer wants :thumbsup:
#14
nope - loving mine right now, gets me out of the house and communicating with adults, just been given a better position and enjoying the training - good stuff and can only get better! :)

I agree but I just have no idea what. I did think plumber as I already do all my own plumbing/tiling/fit my own bathroom etc but there are probably too many chasing jobs already plus I will be up against the young uns which is not so easy.
#16
I love my job...yeah sometimes its not so good....but in the last year since I started theres never been a bad day....its not an easy job by any means and I am busy from the minute I go into the office until the minute I leave but I work with good people and work in a good supporting team and look forward to going in every day as each day has a different challenge.

Been a Surveying Graduate since July and can not find a job!. Been plugging away 9-5 every day to no avail. Everyone seems to want 1st degrees or nothing now :(. So now I have to resort to applying for estate agent jobs (which are ok but not what I did my degree for). :(

these are my holidays which im entitled to take when i want!!

The basics of holiday rights
There is a minimum right to paid holiday, but your employer may offer more than this. The main things you should know about holiday rights are that:

you are entitled to a minimum of 5.6 weeks paid annual leave (28 days for someone working five days a week)
part-time workers are entitled to the same level of holiday pro rata (so 5.6 times your usual working week, eg 22.4 days for someone working four days a week)

you start building up holiday as soon as you start work
your employer can control when you take your holiday
you get paid your normal pay for your holiday
when you finish a job, you get paid for any holiday you have not taken
bank and public holidays can be included in your minimum entitlement
you continue to be entitled to your holiday leave throughout your ordinary and additional maternity leave and paternity and adoption leave
#21
If it is 28 days how do companies get away with offering less like a job currently on the job center website. Part of the text is below, unless it is a typing error!

"There is a 13 week training programme and the chance for progression within the company. There is 13 days holiday plus statutory. The wage is National minimum through the training and then is negotiable. This employer is Work Trial Friendly."

"their" not there


who's not there tell me;-)

"There" indicates a place as in, "I live here not there." It is the opposite of "here." "Their" is the possessive of "they", as in "They live there but is isn't their house." Here you want to indicate that the house belongs to them. "They're" is a contraction of "they are", so that to say, "They're over there in their new house" means "They are over at that place in the new house that belongs to them

It says 13 days plus statutory which could mean anything really but i would guess thats 13+ 8 bank holidays +7 forced days from the company after christmas.

My staff get the 28 days per year, 5 need to be when i have a holiday and this year its 7 days for christmas 25/12/10 - 4/1/11 (7 working days on my schedule).

Ive seen time and time again, if your good at your job you get taken advantage of and end up working harder for the same amount of money than equivalent colleagues - it also backfires if you want promotion or even to side step to a better similar paid job as your boss knows it will be hard to replace you.

If someone is crap at everything, they usually end up with the cushy job you wanted.

So, learn from my mistake, be good at what you do, but not too good.

i work for a band sometimes its great sometimes its guff like this month im off for another 3 weeks before the next gig but then again the whole industry is suffering and i dont mean bands i mean entertainment , more people are sitting in , pubs are getting too dear and most people dont have the disposable cash the seemed to have 12 months ago

A lot of bands i know blame it on the smoking ban i dont agree but i have felt the effects of the downturn on average we would be out 2-3 nights minimum this time of year now its pitiful going from 12-15 gigs in october to about 5 im ok because a few covers my bills but my purse strings have definitely been tightened still though beats doing a ''real'' job lol

for now when you leave uni and have to stand on your own two feet its a different story providing mummy and daddy dont still wipe your bum

All in the eye of the beholder, I've had jobs with travel in the past and I hated it - the horror of stress with traffic, not fully knowing where you are going - parking and then not knowing what time the job will be finished.

Whilst my current job doesn't involve travel, it's not so good - I'm going something that I really don't have experience with (somebody had to fill a gap) and that causes stress.
