I cannot believe how much I have come to hate my job. My company downsized considerably last year and I felt fortunate that I still had my job. My raise that I had earned anyway, got blown away by the workload I now carry. I am our receptionist, accounts receivable, customer service, dispatch, shipping/receiving, and warehouse manager. I used to love my job and love being here, but now it is impossibly oppressive. Our owner wants to sell our company, but was too greedy to get out last spring when he could have gotten his asking price, now he is trapped and lets everyone know. His mood swings are horrible. Right now I am on my 5th day of the silent treatment ( I know, VERY mature) because after spending 4 1/2 hours trying to get to work during a freak snow they closed the road and turned everyone around. By that time it was 12:30 pm. I phoned in to say I wouldn't be in because it seemed futile to spend 3 hours at work to spend another 2+ hours in traffic on the way home. To which I got a very terse "FINE". Our owner lives 4 blocks from our warehouse and can walk to work in about 5-8 minutes tops. I just hate my job lately. This incident is one of many where I feel underappreciated. My boss does not hand out praise but is very public and vocal about the criticisms. I have looked into leaving, but I would have to take an $8-10/hour pay cut. Right now living on Top Ramen and giving everyone cookies for Christmas sounds preferable to coming in here everyday. I just want to scream. It takes everything I have to sit here for 8 or 10 hours a day and deal with him glaring at me, blaming me whenever he or my other coworker lose something that always turns up on their desk. I would like to resign from thinking I have to work in an environment like this. I know why most of our installers have drug and alcohol problems.AHHHHHHHHHH. Alright I think I'm done venting now....did I mention I hate my job, especially today?

I know you gotta have money to live, but is it really worth the $8-10/hr. to suffer like this? Or write yourself a good resume and maybe you could find something and not take such a drastic paycut? Peace is priceless....

ya know I'll buy, but were going to have two rounds, and then a thick gewy pizza.
You just gota get on line, get your resume out to the placement centers, and be proactive. Don't take that pay cut, your next job will be better than you ever imagined.

Thanks guys. I have been sending my resume out all morning. I got woken up at 6 am this morning to my boss yelling at me because he couldn't find something for our route today. "I" put down the wrong warehouse location. I didn't, my driver had already loaded it on the truck. So as soon as I got here this morning I set up a professional hotmail account (my personal is too cute) and began sending out my resumes. I feel better today because I have decided in my mind to quit as soon as I have something to go to. At this point I'm even looking into bartending full time again just to get by, and then I will have days to look for a new job. Much better personal attitude today! And Molly I believe we have some wine we're supposed to share also (Randy's threads;)). You guys are GREAT!

That's what you do - you quit. Life is too friggin' short, especially when the pay isn't exactly - a mil a year. So, no being the victim here, or being trapped. "Make" something happen for yourself. Be determined to do so. The law of averages are with you - sooner or later. If you keep plugging - you will find a job. Just be sure that "you interview them".... Don't just go into it like please hire me. You do the choosing this time, be very inquisitive, look around, study people, notice what's up.
