I hate my job so much. I hate my manager and my supervisor too. They manipulate and use scare tactics to "keep you in line"
They remind you of all the good things that they give you so they can use it against you while in reality, they don't do much, really. I want so badly to get a new job but I feel so stuck here. I work the night shift in hospital E.R. I am a Patient Business Rep. It is not what I want to be doing AT ALL but it does have it's good points. I work 3 14 hour shifts. Monday, Tues, and Wed and I am off THurs, Fri, Sat, Sun. I live 8 minutes from work so if I am needed at home I can get there quick. I also get a 35 percent differential on top of my base pay for working the night shift which is why I do nights cuz I wouldn't make it financially otherwise, but I AM SO SICK OF IT!! I have been doing this for 6 years now and I am growing to hate it more and more everyday. I hate staying up all night. I hate coming here. My boss is a fat bitch and I just hate it!! I am really unhappy but in another 6 months I will be fully vested so I at least have to make it til then...BUT HOW??

OK! Thanks for letting me vent.

glad that you could vent, and yes, it must suck going to a job that you hate, this may sound crazy but have you tried looking elsewhere for employment, or are you kinda stuck now at the job??? keep venting, it helps!

Thanks Camer,

I am pretty much stuck where I am right now because of the money factor. I called H.R. today and inquired about making an appt to go in and talk to a H.R. counselor to find out what options I have, if any. I know what I need to do but I am just scared of putting myself in an even worse financial situation than I am already in. I also am thinking about going back to school. If I can go part time or pool at work I could go back to school so I can work somewhere else or at least in a different dept. School has never been easy for me so there again you have the "fear factor" on top of the money factor.

I will figure it out sooner or later.

Thanks for listening.

Hi!
I do not hate my job, I love my job but my boss makes things really hard for me. 90% of the people where I work are really, really nice--you couldn't ask for better, but I really think sometimes she hates me. She has been rude, yelled at me, embaressed and humiliated me in front of others. Fortunately, she stays 4 floors down most of the time. I do not know why she needs to do this to me, except that she must hate herself and need to make someone else feel miserable too. I know I am doing a good job for my company. I could do a lot better if I were not being abused some of the time. THANK GOD she works far away from me! There is always a positive in every negative! I am increasing my computer and relearning my legal secretarial skills, not because I want to quit my job as receptionist (I really like it) but if she doesn't get over this, I don't know if I can take this treatment. I am pretty new on the job so I am hoping "this too shall pass." Hang in there I know it is tough. Thanks for letting me vent too!!! I love this site.

I am miserable in my job too! Most of the time I have no work to do at all and spend the day on the internet on message boards. I feel useless and poor morale. My boss dosen't care that I don't have any work. He just wants me here so that when he does have some work for me I'll do it.

And the work itself is not using all of my talents and skills. I feel that it is beneath me. I feel unproductive.

I've been looking for another job but haven't been able to find one that fits my background yet at least. I feel like crying I am soo unhappy. It sure does feel good to vent! Maybe one day I'll be out of here and in a better job.

Me and my coworker were just sitting here talking about how great it would be to win the lottery and not tell anyone, then one really busy night at work, just get up and walk out. but pay our other coworkers not to come in if they are called so our supervisor and our manager has to work all night. And make sure that the computer system was down so they would have to do everything on total downtime procedure ( which is a real pain in the ass) and take all the office chairs and hide them so they would have no where to sit. My big fat boss wouldn't like that very much. Then on the way out, have someone video tape us walking out the door in nothing but our underware and bras, singing a kiss my ass celebration song with our middle fingers flying! video tape it and send it to fat ass as our farewell card.

Then we would have a big party waiting for us downtown with all of our coworkers and friends waiting for us and we would never have to think about this hell hole again!!

ahhhhh, Dare to dream!!

Uptoolate and Incense,

My boss was very verbally abusive to me at the beginning of the school year last year. It hurt me to the bone. I do A LOT of extra things at work that I don't get paid extra for. I know that I am a good employee and others tell me this. We used to get along great. I think that she was getting so many kudos from the school board and parents because our test scores went from worst to first that it just went to her head. She HAS done a great job in many ways. However,
1) the teachers did most of the work and she got most of the praise 2) She plays BIGTIME favorites with her employees 3) She is totally lax on discipline and it's coming back to bite her in the behind. Student behavior has been totally out of control.

I was able to finally confront her (as a result of my therapy). It stopped the abuse but she's still not at all friendly to me. I said all that to make this point: I truly believe that people in power have a kind of radar for people like me. I'm passive and easy to pick on. She can treat me like crap and I guess it makes her feel more powerful. She has done this to others (I finally quit focusing on me and started to look around). Guess what? Most of the people she picks on are people who won't stand up for themselves. The really assertive people that I work with don't seem to have this problem with her. But they DO recognize how she can treat others and it makes them very angry! Only a small few really respect her. The other 60 employees think she's a total bitch. She's also a workaholic. Back when we were getting along she told me "the sad thing is that this is all I have in my life." The things that she has said over the years have shown me that she is willing to do ANYTHING to be number one and have our school be number one.

The only part of my job that I truly hate is dealing with her. I'm not a person who says "I hate this person or that person." I have said it about her and it is disturbing to me. I have just decided to focus on the good things about my work. I love 95% of the people I work with. I feel that I have the respect of my peers. I have the respect of students and parents. What I do is very rewarding. I know there have to be some good things you can think about when you feel like it's all crashing down on you. Try really hard to focus on those things and maybe it will help. Perhaps you could transfer to another department and not have to deal with her anymore. You could look in the newspaper for other opportunities. You are fortunate to have so many days off maybe you could spend some of that time interviewing for another position. I don't know if you feel that this is feasable for you....you mentioned the money factor. But you don't know until you try! You sound like a talented individual with a lot to offer!

Keep your chin up and don't give up!
Good Luck!
