Would you rather leave a job you hate and go to a new one, or wait it out until a job in your field accepts you. I'm angry all the time lately and it's deffinitely work driven. Looking for any advice.

Hi guys wondering if anyone has any tips. I'm looking for a new job and need some advice should I declare my general anxiety disorder at interview stage or after I'm offered a position (if I ever get one)

I always thought if I got a job I would be happy. Now that I have one I've realized I'm still v unhappy. I just want to cry I don't understand what the meaning or point of life is I have no direction. I wish someone would just come to me & tell me everything in my life will work out & I'll finally be happy.

Absolutely drowning in work and I am not sure when it will slow down. Getting a lot of pressure from everyone. But all i can do is my best

Such a waste of life to go somewhere everyday you spend a lot of time in just wanting the day to be over

Got hired this spring. Since then someone new has started with my job title but a better salary. Now they want to hire another person, same job title, but she doesn't have a masters degree and will start on more money than me. I feel like they just shouldn't have hired me if they really wanted these other two, and are giving them more money, even with fewer qualifications.

I've been a teacher for 8 years and I'm exhausted. Nothing I ever do is enough, especially for parents. Within the first week of the new school year a parent went to my principal about an issue that I tried to contact her about but got no response. I'm so sad that all of my efforts go completely unnoticed and unappreciated.

I am glad that I wasn't a pushover at work last week. I stood up to my manager telling me to submit a report that didn't make sense to me by citing her as the person making the statement. The next day she went out of her way to make peace with me, but instead of admitting she was wrong she scapegoated a coworker. The coworker is someone who's be sabotaging my work.

Why do supervisors and managers like to harras their staff, nit pick on thier work and bully and intimidate them? Why are they able to get away with it and why do they do it in the first place

I am a nurse for a very busy family practice, I recently realized I am more moody, even angry because I feel powerless to help everyone all the time. I want to meet others how/where I would want to me met and it is really difficult sometimes to accept I can't make things all better or situations/illness go away or give all resources that are needed

I am worried about tomorrow. There was a drinking outing that was a moving away party for a coworker even though he will still be working with us... I didn't want to partake in it for many reasons and didn't go mainly because of the inconvenience. In the past I have gotten a rude lecture for not attending these inconvenient events when I have too much in my personal life going on.

I have always been an exceptional employee and have always worked hard and put my all into everything. I was told today by my bitch of a manager (after putting blood sweat and tears into the job) to be told my probation has been extended until the end of November because they 'need more time' to asses my capabilities' although my supervisor never trains me. I was told I need to take the time to think if this job is the right fit for me. I have no motivation to do anything I dread work

My coworkers probably think I'm some wierdo. I just don't know how to react to people socially, I freeze up and can't think of how to respond. I try to say hi to ny coworkers and all but sometimes it is like one sided that I just kind of gave up except to people who seemed to make an effort to try conversate with me. I wish I didn't care but I do.

I am so distraught. I've been battling depression and anxiety for a while now and my employer has adjusted my schedule as an accommodation, but I feel like I'm suffocating. The environment is toxic and we're understaffed and stressed out of our minds. I've been searching for a telecommute job but no luck yet. Very disheartening. Hope my luck changes very soon!

My supervisor was cordial to me today now that she knows that next week is my last week. Wondering where I am going to work next.

I got a call for an interview today! It's basically what I've worked towards. Going to college for. I'm super excited but also extremely nervous.

Recently stepped down from a toxic work environment, and although I intended to be an adult concerning the situation, somehow one individual was able to take my experience working there and twist It into a regrettable decision I wish I'd never made. im glad I decided to focus on myself and step down before it was too late

My boss made a snarky comment today after I made one spelling mistake. He pointed it out in a public forum and I realized it made me mad. He can be a jerk sometimes.

Super frustrating having a supervisor/coworker tell me to do something one way. Only to see another coworker doing their job and so we did double the work for nothing. My supervisor usually jumps the gun..and it makes things messier than they should be. That's my rant for today!

I just lost my job, I don't know what to do now because every time I think about it I feel panicked and confused, it just makes me stress because it's just one more thing that went wrong this year it's just getting harder
