Erm.... The title says it all.

Does it have to be your permanent career job?

I work in a very slow restaurant so I get to sit around for $5.75 an hour and goof off. I like it.

It's an ambivalent relationship. I hate how exhausting it is, but I do like the work I do.

I love my job. I'm a waiter. While my company-paid salary is sh!t ($2.83 an hour)...the tips aren't too bad at my restaurant and I almost always come in over 12 bucks an hour. I work a lot of 10 hour days so that works for me. Anyway, I love serving people. I love interacting with them. The job and my personality go very well together.

Depends on what day it is. I like my job on Tuesdays and Fridays, when I am out of the warehouse for most of the day doing my delivery route. Mondays suck, well because it's Monday. Wednesdays suck because after 12 pm, there's usually only two of us working in the warehouse, and we end up having to pull any order that comes in (it never seems to fail that I end up having to pull a 500 piece magazine order by myself, why our other warehouse clerk is pulling book orders). Thursdays suck because it's just a madhouse, as we've got a truckload of new issues of magazine titles to unload off of the truck and a bunch of old titles to pull off of the line, and I can't start loading the old stuff and any retail returns onto the truck until the new stuff is unloaded. Then after lunch, I have to drive up to our other warehouse on the other side of town to pick up some titles because they haven't changed the distribution draw on some titles since they moved 6 routes down to our warehouse. I end up spending about 3-4 hours total on this, including drive time (the return trip is during rush hour traffic, so that really sucks). It would take a lot less time if I didn't have to wait for one title (a title we receive at our warehouse earlier in the day) to get to that warehouse.

My job: yes. My schedule: yes. I am training for a new career so the whole thing will suck for about two weeks more.

Right now, I am working Taco Bell from 11pm to 6am then at school from 7am to 3pm. Yeah, it sucks. I hope to be driving truck by the end of the month. I already have leads on some jobs.

I love my job, I work at a car wash makin anywhere from 5.00-16.00$ an hour. only 1 out of 3 of the bosses is strict, and he never stays past 4. I love getting paid to skateboard out in the parking lot on slow days, like summer always is. It's also in the ghetto, so I get to work with some characters, fun times all considered.

BTW c'mon people don't wash your own cars in the driveway, support your local wash boys.

I hate my Part-time job. I work from 0500 - 1000 four days a week. I get paid $10US/hour, plus benefits. I stock shelves of shampoos, deodorants and other toiletries. It still beats working at a restaurant or fast-food place. I only hate it because I get paid so much for doing nothing, weird eh!

I work as a Telecommunicator (Dispatcher) in the Communications Bereau of a city Police Department in Florida. I love my job! I have been a janitor, a sandblaster and a retail salesman and I have to say this job beats them all. I answer the phones, 911 and take complaints from citizens. I also communicate with the officer's over the radio and run tags, drivers licenses ect for them. I have been doing this for 1 year and I work the Midnight-8:00 AM shift. I am also enrolled in the Police Academy and I graduate in February. After that I am going to become a police officer at a city agency somewhere in this area.

My previous job - which I held from the beginning of February to mid April this year (selling SAN/NAS/Backup-Storage-Solutions): I absolutely hated that after about one week on the job...

Now I'm back in the travel business, at STA Travel here in Frankfurt, working in ticketing - and I can only say that I absolutely love it!!!

Neither.
If I had won the lottery I would be doing something else (i.e, raising Lapinous) but I don't come in the morning just wishing the day would be over either.

I have always dreamed of working for an airline in a airport.
And now here I am. And I'm also in charge of this office, so thats pretty ok.

I like my job as well, most of it anyway. Doing lavaratory services on biz jets and cleaning up around the place sucks. Working outside in the blazing heat and humidity sucks too. But working around airplanes is awesome. I am a line service guy at an FBO at an airport in Jacksonville, FL.

While my dream job would certainly be for an airline, it would be in the IT dept. for sure!

I switched jobs a year ago, and love the company I work for, the travel it provides, and enjoy the structured, consistent schedule and expectations.

Despite the fact that you're only needed when something really bad happens, I love being a network engineer and working on a largely Cisco-based network.

On the whole, I like my job and my company as well ...

As Teva says, I do not like the micro-managing that my management seems to like. ("What are you doing, why are you doing that" at every minute lol.)

I just put up with a lot of $hit and get little appreciation in return. Oh well!

I REALLY love but job. I enjoy getting up in the morning to go, and I look forward to going. The co-workers, and management really make all the difference. As much as I DO love WHAT I do, the people really make it. My co-workers are like family and management treats me really well.
