Do you like your job?

Postby acsguitar » Thu Mar 23, 2006 12:08 pm

Just wondering how many of you actually like your job.

If you do like it how many jobs did you have to quit before you found it?

I left a job for more money and it is not what I hoped it would be.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I like my job, though it can get boring if I don't have projects to manage and I have look to do adhoc jobs for others. I wish I had never left my AOL job though. But that was like 3 jobs ago.

It's decent. I broadcast and web stream ASU classes to people who aren't at ASU, so I get to play with a lot of fun technical equipment.

The reason I've kept it for so long- as an ASU staff member I get to take classes for $39 each. 8-o

I also get tons of Internet time while a class is in session, which is nice... explains why I have so many posts I guess. Going on 5 years now.

No complaints here. :-)


Had a few jobs in the past, and my favorite ones were incentive laced, not hourly pay. B-)

Just wondering what type of engineer?

I'm in my 3rd year of a civil engineering major right now.

I like my job very much. I like the work and the people. I'm not loving the hours at the moment, but we're understaffed and it's busy season, a bad combination. But I'm quite happy where I'm at. ;-D

I went through a few jobs just to make money, nothing more, before stumbling on something I enjoyed. Did that for 7 years and now I'm in something totally different. Been here for 6 months and it gets a little frustrating, because I don't usually know what the hell is going on, but the people are great and I know I'll get the hang of it. Plus, the expense account and company car ain't bad either...
