How do u know when a job is wrong for u?

Is it when you dread driving to work everyday? Half the time you're late? Or maybe when you try but always feel like you're stuck in slow motion and cant get anything done? Maybe when your boss acts like a 12yo like he owns the place? Could it be all the politics you have to fight through just to get what little you have done?


How did you know your old job/present job is wrong for you? Have you found something since you left your old one? Is it better/worse?

It sounds like you're there. I think the dreaded drive to work happens to everyone at some point, but when it's nearly every day, that indicates something's wrong. And if you get that sort of depressed/frantic/desperate/I want to cry/why me? thing going reguarly every Sunday as the sun starts to sink below the horizen that's a sign too.

+1 For various reasons, it always seems easier to get a job if you already have a job.

The only reason my company kept me on this far is to use me to contract back to ATT. They pay me , and I am tired of it. I cannot live off nothing and have been spending my own money to live.I am not going to live off my wife and make her pay more. So I feel ya, but with a house note and all the other bills I cannot just say screw you at this point, unfortunatly
I can totally identify. At one point I was keeping over 4k just in my checking account. Paying bills was no worry. Now I am reduced to shreds from slowly but surely draining my bank account. Havent had a raise in 4yrs (since I started) and I was NEVER offered one. U basically have to threaten to quit & they would just let you if they didnt wanna keep you. The place is just the EVIL empire of dealer owners and unfortunately they own half of them in houston.

Thats not an option, but in my line of work people are always looking for guys. I can just about work anywhere (I know of at least 3 places that would hire me right now) that is, if Im not picky. I really wanna move to the oil field side of mechanics/electronics anyway. I wouldnt mind the 2 on 2 off thing either.

That'll pretty much do it.

There are too many jobs out there to put up with that . I've walked off plenty of jobs and never regretted it.

If you think about having to go to work and hating it, The Night Before, then you hate what you do... if you feel like going to work is the same as making a hypothetical trip to the electric chair than its time for something new... but do have something lined up first... GL

Love what I do. Hate where I do it & what I had to put up with (and yes I know that goes along with all jobs) but I know for a fact that more than a few employees feel exactly the same way. Just can express it for fear of the same happening.
