Had a "dream job" back home, with a complete jackass for a boss. The work, for this industry, was great. Fast pace, high pressure, problems to solve, people to keep employed,...I loved it. The boss made the average workday intolerable.
Moved here for a better job, and then the economy went in the tank, and my job (and others) went with it. Uphill battle ever since.
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Sorry dude. I didn't realize who the guy I quoted was talking about. I know you are good people. I apologize for the douchey comment.
Your a retard.
no problem. I know where you were coming from. ha. We're good. As always.
If it's any indication is better to be a volunteer moderator on this board.
Sparty is our mascot, we are Spartans.
I would say most of the time 3 or 4 but there have been days lately where I can't stand it.
Everyone in the office talks behind your back. Can't even socialize with someone anymore without letting the boss know you are on a break or taking the conversation to the bathroom. I've been called out multiple times for "not working" because I was having a 2 minute convo with the person in the cube next to me.
There is also the employee who doesn't do SHIT while she works. Always on her phone and Youtube instead of getting her work done. She brings our metrics down every month. The boss tried to turn her in but she pulled the race card so the entire thing was dropped.
Currently looking for a new gig out of state. Can't wait to get out of the toxic environment.
I asked my wife this question and she answered with "about 1.5"
She works for a credit union.

This. I'm on the tax side of things and am already sick of Saturdays but am looking forward to a slower summer. Already have a few vacations planned to look forward to and help me get through tax season. It definitely could be worse!
Day to day, my job is fine. I've only been working out of college for about 6 months. The concern comes in when I question whether I should be doing something else. I'm in a good field with a chance to make very good money down the road, but it's also a field that I could get pigeonholed, and at 23 can anybody really be super confident they made the right choice? I just sort of chose a major in college, had no clue what I wanted to do. These concerns take it from a 1 or 2 to a 5.
In the same field as the guy above me.

7. Decent title, decent purpose. Crappy pay, idiot management. Culture of people not able to wait to get out.
Wouldn't be half as bad if I hadn't already tasted the good life. Beats gaps in employment I guess, but if any of you schmucks works for Lilly, Pfizer or Merck I'll suck you off for a job
Only been about 6 months for me as well, did do a busy season internship though so feels longer. But I hear you on the second guessing on career choice. I will give this a while before I would seriously consider something else but can't say it hasn't crossed my mind.
I hate my job 13 out of 14 days
I'm about a 9. I just loved having the highest degree out of everyone but getting paid the lowest and being a glorified secretary. However, as much as I hate it, it's a job and I have insurance. So I am grateful for that, and most of my awesome coworkers. I am currently looking to change careers, and just keep my options open.
anywhere from a 1 to a 10. If I had control over everything including ass retarded dipshits that thing the world revolves around them (that refers to 95% of all people) it would be a 1/10 every day.. Based on one being super awesome.

Good luck to you buddy. Keep me updated!
Yea my busy season internship was in 2011 so I had a big gap. Like you I plan to let it ride for a couple years, like I said I don't dislike the job, and evaluate the opportunity from there.
-10. Love my job. Great company, great boss, great balance, great location.
Hasn't always been this way. Glad I'm here.
It's Friday night. I'm good until Monday.
I work for myself. I am at home in sweat pants almost everyday . But my boss is a drunken ahole.
Fuck off, Nucky!
When I started at my job in 2000, it was a 2 until 2007. Then things changed.
From 2007 to present it has progressed from a 2 to a 5, then a 7, now a 9. Not good.
Seriously thinking about leaving a job I used to love. I see others out there in the same industry doing much better than I am, with much less stress.
Gotta start putting feelers out to see what might be out there. I can't take much more of this even though the money is great, have a pension, and great retiree benefits. The pension and retiree benefits are the only reason I have stuck it out this long. Awful work environment right now, no support, been that way for 5 years and gets worse every day.
Just started my first real job this week. Co workers are great and boss is a friendly, fun guy so it is off to a good start. Combination of paperwork which is a bore but also science-y benchwork which I enjoy. I am gonna peg it at a 3 but only because I have to get up early in the morning.
8. I get paid by the Navy to go to med school, which is certainly a privilege, but I'd rather be a line (combat) officer instead. Really becoming disenchanted with medicine.

I was at a 10... I hated my boss he had little man syndrome or a napoleonic complex. Whatever you want to call it the guy was a total piece of shit. I'm in construction, and he couldn't even say hello to you when he came out to the project. He was based out of Pittsburgh, and the job I was running was near Philly.
I didn't hate the job, I just hated him, and a few select individuals in my region, who were complete kiss asses. All they were concerned about was climbing the corporate ladder. They would partially do their jobs all the time we're trying to build a 150,000,000 dollar job, and it's like pulling teeth trying to get some cooperation.
My review last March was hilarious. I'm sitting in my office and my boss didn't even have the balls to confront me in person as to what I wrote about him, the job staff, and his lackies. He in fact sent one of his lackies in place of himself and hid in Pittsburgh, trying to conduct my review over the phone.
This shit had been going on for about 3 years. I agreed with him that I had a bad attitude, we parted ways, and I took my compensation package and ran. I was out of work for ten months.
Best decision I ever made. I left a mid 6 figure salaried job, company truck, and a bonus. Money isn't everything. I found a new job a month ago and things are great.
Hours are way relaxed, people are cool etc
Sometimes you just need to regress in order to advance.
I'm also an auditor. Busy season sucks. Oh well. I like public accounting and working in a team environment. The pay is alright for the amount of work but being 27 and doing better than most people ever will in their lifetime is kinda nice. Plus, it's a spring board to a better job whether you become partner or a controller in industry.
