I Hate my job!

Never thought I would be saying this on the 4th day of my job...but what do you expect when on the first day of the job your given tonnes of work (which you had no clue how to do) and your first deadline is after a week?????????

Which company does that??????????...Apparantly mine does!

Well as they say..Your job is only as good and bad as the people around you...Could never have proved more true. My Current boss is a "B****" of the first order and I will not feel guilty even if I have to murder her.

Ok so this is a major crib post--looks like I am the latest scapegoat in the office who gets dumped work that the "B****" doesnt "like" to do (mind you this has nothing to do with if she has the time to do it or not)....

Am very very tempted to walk out of the job and say..."find someone else to screw"!...but am picking up excuses like..."something is better than nothing"...or "atleast am getting paid"...ahem....maybe coz I dont want to be an escapist.....

Hoping to get through each day one at a time....wishing theres something better in store....praying its all worth it!...sigh!

Ohhh. YOu poor child. I have been plagued with bad women bosses right from my first job. Thankfully the scene is a little different now, my current boss is quite ok. Thats one of the worst things to deal with at work. Keep looking out, hopefully something better will work out soon.

hang in there and you ll be amazed wen u look back at things in life and realize how much of shit you can take and still survive.

When you are dumped with work that no one wants to do - you pick / learn a skill set they obviously failed to master! Which btw becomes an opportunity. Speaking from experience! :) Unless of course they are asking you to photocopy stuff, in which case all bets are off unless you want to start the next big copier company! :P Best of luck and smile!

My first day was something like that. My friend indradeep on the other hand was very lucky. On his first day, we had a power outrage. we went out to watch a movie, courtesy our company :D

Hie...

This is something I understand too well... but I guess, you must get on with it until teh time you find the better option to keep your self occupied...

I remember something about work satisfication.. either you have work or satisfaction but seldom both :-((.

Wow - I know this feeling well. Two jobs ago, I got yelled at at my third day on the job. I think it was the first time anyone had yelled at me since high school. I was broke, the economy was poor and I needed the income -- badly.

Today, I would have walked right the hell out.

I hope you find a solution soon.

That's bad. Start looking for another job ... it's no good working with a b**** if that's not doing any GREAT wonders to your career.

I have faced such terrible times, but luckily it didn't last that long!

And remember not to give in to your boss always ...fight and kick the hell out of her :-) he he

Does a woman make a Bad boss? ... hmmm ..need to think now. I have exp. before i retired.

Ekta, it is very essential that you are happy doing your job ( stressful or unstressful) and first and foremost you should feel happy/comfortable about your work place, otherwise it's a drag every morning.

Enjoy one's WORK should be the motto, (high or low or no pay)

bye

At 11:26 AM, Blogger artnavy said...

that sucks. but hold on and hang in there- it is too early for u to judge your boss
have a heart to heart with her or with the HR person

 
At 12:20 PM, Blogger Arz000n said...

Ohhhh man :(

I went thru the similar phase in ma second company n within a week I realised that I did a major blunder by leaving ma first company...

afta that it was just a frantic search to leave the current company..somehow....though it took me 5months and lotsa mental torture...that was sick..

Hope you are not blogging this from office :)

Take care...

Ekta u are a brave girl. Take this as a challenge & prove that there is no "impossible" word in your dictionary.

Mind this baby, when there is a challenge or a tough fight in life, u are filled with power to face it.

All the Best.

Bad bosses are just not worth it in the end. So give it a shot for a few months but if it is making your life hell, get out.

o boy, looks like most of us 'hate' ur jobs! It's comforting and at the same time unsettling - if all hate our own jobs, then it means the matching of joba nd personality checks are so screwed up?!
I hate mine too btw. Any day now, am tempted to say - ok, am done, bye-bye.

hmmm...u dont seem to like ur new job or boss very much do u ??;p
dont worry dear, whn things cant get ne worse, thrs only scope for better...:)

Just 4 days and you hate your boss .. May be she is a real B I T C H .. But it would be only fair to give her / the job more time..
I always tell my self that its our family that we must like and love.. Not our colleagues !!
We must respect and work well with our colleagues..
Maybe take it up as a challenge to break the ice and make the relationship work..
If she remains “unfair” ..trust me she will not last long.. Such people do not..
But then you are the HR expert.. who am I to tell you !!
