So whether you're studying or working, I'm just curious what is it that you do and if you enjoy it. I work in a large cultural institution and I'm getting really tired of all the people that come here. I drink a lot of energy drinks to stay fit. Sometimes the only way how to forget this job is to finally fall asleep in bed.

But the thing is I cannot quit. Where I'm from, you can find a lot of shitty jobs, but nothing as stable as this one. I do it for almost seven years and I already faced burnout a couple of times, but always found the strength to get back. As they say, working with people is the most difficult. But it took me a lot of time to find and maintain this job and I need to keep it.

How about you?

I'm with you on the crappy job market. I work compliance for a medical testing company. Basically I make sure all the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed and make sure all our customers' policies and procedures line up the way the law says they should.

Physically, it's the easiest job I've ever had, but I've never had one that's more stressful. The pay's not great, but it's stable.

Before this I was looking for work for almost a year. Just on Indeed I submitted more than 80 applications before this place finally gave me a call, so leaving isn't an option because there's no guarantee how long it will take to line something up and I've got a family to worry about.

Overall, the job's not bad. I do get tired of feeling like I'm dealing with children all the time because you've got doctors and nurses - pretty intelligent people - who either can't or won't follow simple instructions for months on end, and then they panic and try to blame us when they have to scramble a week before an inspection to make sure they don't get shut down.

Man, you just took this straight out of my mouth. Very Happy

I have also worked here and there before, I have tried a lot of jobs before. This one is the first one, where someone appreciates what I do and planned to keep me from the very beginning. The pay here isn't great either, but since I don't have no wife or kids, I guess I'm OK with the way things are.

But yeah, as I said before, the everyday reality is just my head exploding at any minute. I have hundreds of people knocking on my door every day, people, who don't care that I'm tired or in a bad mood. I simply have to serve them all.

I work in a water quality lab for a city's water supply. I get out and collect water samples, do data review and in the lab, I analyze some samples and make simple solutions. The pay and benefits are decent, and I have healthcare and a pension.

For the most part I like it. I don't have to flip burgers or clean bathrooms anymore. I'm expanding into doing some research and presenting at technical conferences. What I DON'T like is the nitpicky nonsense done by managers and sometimes other people who are not understanding what's going on.

It's 50/50...I been here for a few years and only complaint is usually the customers, weekly paying, and never really needing to travel far for work is honestly within my range, and when it comes to working? I am always looking to work so I'm not disliking at all at what I do for right now but it MIGHT change depending on them.

I'm glad I'm not in retail anymore. My expectations have changed over the years. I used to have to work in retail because I was in college and you had to deal with customers. I got very tired of dealing with people who looked down on me as a retail guy, but when they wanted something, I must know the cure to all exotic diseases.
