Happy workers don't go on Fark during work hours.

And it's not like this place attracts the happy, well-adjusted type who enjoys work.

Well duh. Work has always sucked.

But the older generations sucked it up and did what they had to do.
The younger genrations are all like "but they want me to work and won't give me an hour or social media time. Nor will they give me a 2 hour tattoo color fill break."

The job would be okay if I was paid a couple bucks an hour more.
 
2013-06-25 08:11:14 PM  
As someone who lives abroad, has work pay for my housing, and I get to travel a lot, yes I do like my job thanks

Not too surprised. Half the responders on Gallup should have been retired years ago, but instead are working as Walmart Greeters because their 401ks were wiped out during the last crash.

NO! I work for a small PC repair company. We will lie till high heaven to squeeze all we can out of the customer. A laptop charger that will got for retail at $20, we will charge the customer $120. Simple virus removal? That will require the re-installation of the OS. Oh, you want your files saved? That will be extra.

My job is unbelievably horrible.  Somehow we have this culture in which we have come to call the people who actually work "scape-mules" because they are the ones doing everything and get ridden like a beast by the carpet bagging management, and then blamed and fired when anything goes wrong.  There is no management or accountability whatsoever, but those fools still get paid big bucks for absolutely no contribution.  At least they pay us well, but if they would actually hire enough competent people to accomplish the work dumped on all us "exempt" status slaves and got rid of the dead weight "management" then we would all gladly take less pay.  What a hellhole. (2 more years till the mortgage is paid off.)

Next biatch Session Up.

What a rose-tinted view of the past. People protested all the time against work conditions, demands, pay, danger, everything. People have always hated their jobs, but we've grown more complacent and stick to complaining on the interwebz about it instead of starting up a mob and breaking shiat.

Peter Gibbons: So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life.

Dr. Swanson: What about today? Is today the worst day of your life?

Peter Gibbons: Yeah.

Dr. Swanson: Wow, that's messed up.

I do accounting/finance and insurance for a Chrysler dealership. Tedious work, but my boss is cool (and more than a little technophobic) and he treats everyone square. Compared to retail, I'm much happier (that green stuff with the pictures of dead presidents on it is amazing!), but I'm not looking at the car sales business as a long term career. For the square deal I'm getting, I consider 4-5 years of solid work an acceptable trade off. Gallup can go fark itself if it thinks that I'm unhappy (bored at times and completely overworked at other times, but not unhappy)

I work for a multinational corporation that would fill our cubicles with boiling acid and herpes-ridden pirahna if they thought it would increase the dividend they can give out by 1 cent.

While the work I do is somewhat unique, like is not the word I would use to describe my job.
 
2013-06-25 08:39:29 PM  
I am a maintenance manager for a public pool.

I wear shorts, t-shirts and flip flops at work and frequently get to work in the pool on hot summer days.

I have 100% medical/dental for me and my wife

I work with many gorgeous female lifeguards.

I make less than 1/2 of what I did when I was a Corporate Security Director but I am twice as happy.

The older generations also had pensions, healthcare that they could afford, and in general felt like they were valued workers instead of replaceable drones doing the work of three people. Not to mention the increase in the cost of living while wages have gone nowhere. Oh, and lets not forget the government taking out taxes every paycheck for benefits I'll probably never see in my lifetime.

Whoa! What makes you think we want to be saddled with your hack(more)opinion? Rein it in a bit! Halter complaining.

I'm retired.  I get paid to breath, so I can't really complain.

Is there any Gallop poll regarding the number of times this Gallop poll is going to get frontpaged?
 
2013-06-25 09:00:11 PM  
This same poll has also circulated around where I work. Hell, no, I didn't answer that. Malcontents are easy prey if we ever get budget cuts.

I should like my job. The salary is comfortable, benefits are great, stress is low, there are no deadlines, the hours are flexible, management is friendly, there is no competition for the position, and for the most part I sit in my cubicle and browse the web all day. It sounds great. Except there is no career growth. There are no learning opportunities. There is no incentive to improve or excel - or to work at all, for that matter. Forty hours per week of thumb twiddling for years on end, and everyone here is in on it.

I'd love to quit my job and go do something meaningful, but it's downhill in all directions from here. Anywhere else, I'd have to work harder for longer hours, and ultimately get paid less for it. Forget about paid leave, medical insurance, and retirement funds.

That's crap. I was happiest at jobs where I could fark for a good chunk of my day. It was jobs where totalitarian pricks blocked websites and demanded I look busy even though I got my shiat under control was where I was miserable.

Love my job, hate the commute.  Love my immediate boss, the rest of upper management can go fly a kite.  Love my co-workers, hate the fact that I got written up for missing work due to pneumonia (3 weeks outside of FMLA eligibility, brought in 2 Dr notes, my boss even took me home one day because he didn't want me on the floor, but I still got dinged for it).  Rules aren't the same for everyone in my office.  Oh, if only I were one of the "pets" but I suck at that kind of thing.  I wouldn't drive nearly 2 hours a day round trip if I didn't love what I do, but I've been questioning my decision as of late and may have to look for another job soon just out of self-preservation. I haz a sad.

Furniture maker with a nice list of customers....  LOVE my "job".
 
2013-06-25 09:42:15 PM  
Yup.  Manage a real estate company, and 5 years ago I took my love of photography and started shooting homes for Realtors.  Now I do about 15 houses a week, and add quite a bit to the yearly income.

I must love it, I do it from 7 am to 9 pm 6 days a week, and never wish I was doing something else.

bingethinker: The job would be okay if I was paid a couple bucks an hour more.


I have research that says otherwise.  Pay is around the 4-6th most important on the list of items that contribute to job satisfaction.  Getting paid more means you'll tolerate more, but your still just as unhappy as before.
 
2013-06-25 09:46:44 PM  
My company actually hired Gallup to conduct intra-company polls to see how the company can make employees happier and more productive.  The managers all hate it, the employees (at least in my area) are meh, and some of the questions we get asked are bewildering.  Apparently, having a best friend at work correlates highly with feeling engaged.  I wonder if they calibrated these questions on engineers.
 
2013-06-25 09:51:07 PM  
Hate it. Every stinking damn minute of it. Stoopid hours....stoopid rules. The worst part? Constantly feeling like I'm participating in the exploitation and ripoff of people who can least afford to be ripped off.

Yeah, I work for a "for profit" school.

It absolutely friggin' blows.
 
2013-06-25 09:55:21 PM  
Have a MS in geographic info science but I drive for a living. Started out in insurance as an independent agent until I joined the Occupy crowd, then became a truck driver. Now I'm trading it in for a cargo van so my wheelchair bound girlfriend can join me on the road. I have to pay for insurance and my extra money gets split between cash reserves and investments. The open road is my office now, I'm an independent contractor with less than 700 a month in expenses and my gf and I can take our monthly hometime wherever we please. GenCon in Indy, fetish conventions in SF, maybe a week in Orlando taking in theme Parks or in a remote cabin at a state forest where we can take in nature.

Love my job. And I get to write as well.

I don't get paid enough to live anywhere near comfortably here in DC, but I work in politics and am getting to get my hands in a bunch of stuff, which should be valuable experience for later in my career, so I'm pretty happy right now.

I fell into it, really. My buddy is the customer service manager and he got me a warehouse job. I took over the returns when my boss got too busy to do them. It's a whole department now.

Hagbardr:

Los Angeles, five minutes from Venice.

The running joke is that if you pass a drug test, you'd be fired from the company.
No, they don't test.

I love work. I have a 40-hour job plus a side business (marketing consulting) and an invention in development. When I'm not working on those, I build furniture. Work allows me to make my world what I want it to be, and I find it fulfilling in itself.
 
2013-06-25 10:29:46 PM  
Forester by profession. I manage trees, lots of trees. and critters too.
The job is great, except for the pay. 
This time of the years sucks, the heat is bearable, but the dang chiggers, snakes, and scorpions.
are hard to deal with.
I wear knee high pantyhose over my socks to keep the seed ticks and chiggers out, and knee high snake boots for the snakes.
 
2013-06-25 10:32:26 PM  
Retired 7 years ago. Can't say I really liked my job.
