They have all been put in charge because of who they know.

ah, nepotism

there was a lot of that at the last place i worked. just every single one of them got the job simply because they were a son, daughter, cousin, nephew, niece, etc. and none of them knew anything about actually having a job. they just came in, did nothing, and got a paycheck. and let me tell you....their paycheck was a HELLUVA lot more than most. like they were making about 5 times more than people that did actual work.

I’ve been out of work since April 2018 and I do miss it. I was in a bad accident and was electrocuted at work with almost 30,000 volts of electricity. I almost died twice, and had to get over 250 stitches on my head, had 3rd and 4th degree burns on 24% of my body (arm, back and bottom), lacerated my spleen, broken ribs, and broke my neck in 2 places.

After something like this happening, I am grateful for every day. Even working, I liked my job and most of my co-workers, and miss it.

I like my job, bossís and schedule, but hate, HATE, a couple of my accounts. I work 4/10 hour days and as long as Iím there by 0630, complete my resets and donít go over my 10 Iím golden. Unfortunately, I donít think some of these stores realize the amount of work we do there. I honestly want to ask them, ďWhat do you expect of us? Because you need to be less focused on what weíre doing and more on what your crew is doing at this point.Ē Especially now that I know my company will no longer be servicing their stores.

Sure, maybe another will hire us on, but Iím not sure the pros outweigh the cons. Last week I had a perishable manager come up to me wanting a tag made for something I set over a month ago. Iíd be more understanding if heíd brought it to my attention the week after, but a month?!?!?! ***** please! The photo I took after the set shows the tag there. So do your job, stop changing my resets and get the pricing specialist to make a ****ing tag instead of me

If I wasn't working, I'd be in a state of perpetual boredom at home. So yeah, work is what breaks my monotony in life.

Wow, I really hope you are doing ok and at least relatively pain free.

I liked working more then I like looking for a job. So many emails from the job searching apps, applications that take up to a hour to complete and ask for all sortsa personnel information and then have you take tests to asses your personality and job skills, scam/spam emails offering work from home jobs.
And I haven't even gotten to the interviewing portion of trying to find a new job yet and I'm sure I'll like that even less.

I like my job. I work in the field of Internet sales and spend with a robot just a few hours a day. But I have long been building this opportunity for myself. In parallel, I try to make money on the Internet

Working is stressful and can be very intense at times. But like you said, it gives me more self-confidence and self-worth. And at the end of the day, I'm tired, but I am satisfied to have accomplished something in my day. And that's why vacations can be hard for me sometimes. I always looks forward to vacations because I get to finally rest, go away and do things that I didn't have time to do because I was always working. But them, my confidence and self-worth starts to go down the drain and I'm like, "I'm having all this fun and relaxation. Now, what's my purpose on life?" And then I end up being in a funk. This is why work is something I can and cannot live with. I need work to keep me going in life, but then again, I hate work because it's stresses me out.
