I didn't read everyone else's posts, but I was in your exact position a little over a month ago. I detested my job with a passion. I realized what I didn't like about it, and looked for employers with opposite patterns. I have new job I like now. Am I gnawing at the bit to get there every morning? No. But I do enjoy it.

Just look for another job with some specific criteria. If you hate working, then don't. If you have to, put some effort into finding one tolerable. If you hate working, will always hate working, and won't ever do anything but hate your job, then get some anti-depressants or a sugar-momma...

I don't hate my job, but it does cut into "my" time. I did, and still do, jump through a lot of hoops to keep my job, but I feel fortunate. I try to teach kids to use their hands and brains to acquire marketable skills. It is busy and stressful but I don't hate it.
I took a lot of risks and worked very hard to get my job. Some things take work. I'm 56 and I just signed up for a class to keep my skills up, so I'll be working and going to school. No time for beer. Cycling is fun and it keeps the blood pressure low.

Don't worry though the day we run out of oil will be the most interesting day anyone of us has ever seen, I hope i do live to see the day their isn't anymore oil anymore since we can make urethane from hemp based resins i truly look forward to riding carless streets.

Oh that's lucid.

I hated my job in 1991. I figured out a way to start this business. I've been doing this for 20 years now. Sometimes if the jobs available to you all suck, it's better to create your own job. It's not easy and it does require some hard work and some luck. It can be daunting of course. It helps if you don't really have so much to lose, and 20 years ago I didn't.

Of course this economy sucks very hard, but there are always opportunities in the USA. The trick is figuring out where they lie.

I know this won't help either...but I love my job. It pays well, I do innovative and creative work, am respected and liked by my peers, the clients are appreciative (one is throwing a catered party in a couple weeks, just for the crew), I get to show both leadership and teamwork, teach young apprentices, the locations change yet are all within a few minutes of home, the projects are invariably in a beautiful setting, I rise early to finish early and still have plenty of the day left to myself, and every day I can see tangible and positive results for my day's work.

Getting a good job is tough, but people who use that as an excuse will never get one. People in my same building who've worked there for 10+ or even 20+ years whine constantly. I'm sorry, but if you can't find something in that much time, the problem ain't the job.

Once you have one, you gotta work at them to make them good. Just as there are some people who can't find any good women/men out there, there are others who have the same issue with jobs. Satisfaction typically has more to do with attitude than the job itself -- that is true even for the vast majority of crap jobs.

My best friends next door who bought their house the same time I did lost their jobs a couple of years ago in March and May, respectively. He was doing air conditioning units on top of large buildings for 25 years. She was in home medical care for invalids 23 years.

Since no buildings were being constructed, he was laid off in March. New lower wage people fresh out of training were being hired to replace him and others that were at top wage. His age: 52.

She was laid off because they sent her to homes with people who she physically could not handle alone. The homes were two hours away. Although she was able to make it there on time, the patients she had were very large and she could not pick them up without endangering herself. She found herself driving four hours back and forth only to realize she could not help her assigned patients. When she asked the company for a patient not so large, she was laid off. Her age: 55

Although they both waited to be hired back on, in the meantime they both applied for jobs in their area of expertise. What it came down to was: They were too old and cost too much.

They sold both of their cars, some furniture, they even sold a mature palm tree that they planted when they first moved in....all to make house payments.

Within those months, she got a few odd ball jobs at minimum wage to try to make ends meet and he ended up having to apply for early retirement in order to save his house. Retirement takes 45 days to kick in, they lost their house at 30 days...15 days before his retirement kicked in.

They lost their house. It had TWO years to be paid off.

It's not easy to just bust out and get a new job, hate it or not.

Here's the rub. A geographically bound search for a position requiring expertise is probably not going to work out. Finding two jobs of that type is even harder.

Losing a house sucks, but it sounds like they are not destitute. Being able to retire at 55 is a luxury few people have now, and it is becoming far less common.

Age discrimination is a serious issue, but there are also plenty of cases where younger competent people who make huge sacrifices and are already in a financially precarious position get dumped (or never have a chance to be hired) for someone else has held a position longer and gets paid more just for that rather than for actually making a greater contribution. This is especially true in government and union shops.

Getting a job is not only hard, but it often requires leaving people and places you love far behind. What you wind up with is function of priorities, effort, and luck. Most people have to give up something they really value in the process.

No it doesn't work out. But that's all they were ever trained to do, which is why she took the jobs that were minimum wage.

Because the bank told them they would wait for his retirement to kick in, then changed their minds, they had very little time (less than two weeks) to find a place to live. BECAUSE they were not employed and did not pay two months mortgage in full (they sent what they could) nobody would rent to them. They lived in their 1990 single cab pickup truck until he got his paycheck that was sent to my house. With help from friends, they were able to secure a place to at least take a shower and sleep.

He was forced into early retirement in order to save his house, which means he was not qualified for the full benefits should he waited until he was of age. As of this day, they are still scraping by.

I'm not as blind to reality as I may let on.

A buddy of mine that I've known since third grade lost his job a couple years ago. He's an engineer in his mid 40's. Lost his house as well as everything else (retirement funds are fully depleted) and has been homeless for awhile. He was staying at my parents' house as recently as a few weeks ago. One subject of frequent discussion in our house is what we can do for him.

All these things are partly a matter of how you set yourself up and luck also plays a significant role. I think it's nuts for anyone to assume their job will last long nowadays. Employees are disposable, and you have to plan with that in mind.

Fortunately, the story with my buddy may have a happy ending. Just yesterday, he found out he was accepted into school and got an assistantship. He's scared that he doesn't know enough, and he is starting on probation because his grades were not up to par. He'll definitely be miserable at first, but I'm hopeful he does what it takes to get back in the game.

Part of me thinks I should just completely change careers, as I don't think I would like any job in IT. The question is, what would I do? I've been in IT for eight years. I wouldn't even know where to begin.

Think of it this way. The 20 somethings are starting out with no skills, experience, etc.

You're essentially in their boat, except you'll have an advantage if you can find something where your experience even tangentially helps. Switching almost always requires you to take a massive pay cut while you retool. But after you retool, you'll be even more versatile.

I put a Craigslist ad for one day (cost me nothing) for freelance help and got about 40 qualified responses. Amazing. It sucks out there.

Yep. I got my foot in the door at my current job by washing floors as a temp and worked my way up. I've been an auto mechanic, a waiter, a barista, worked at a call center for three years, and for the past seven years have been working in a GMP production facility. All pretty sucky jobs where I'm surrounded by whiners. I find the positive people and try to gravitate towards them, it makes my job a lot more enjoyable.

I've never hated any jobs I had except for this clothing store and grocery store but then again these are things I'm not trying to make a career out of. Most of my jobs have been fun and I learned a lot even though the pay wasn't as much as I expected. At least I got connections and good references.

I'll add one to your list. And the US Govt subsidizes US farmers who sell their stuff on the global market who in turn put african farmers and other third world farmers out of business. These third world farmers can not compete with the cheap crops coming from the USA so they have no choice but to close their business down. It creates even more poverty and starvation.

I have always hated my job. I work 6, 10-12 hour days without breaks, I eat my lunch between jobs. In the summer there is no air conditioning, two weeks ago we had a heat wave and it was 104 degrees the shop, In the winter I am kneeling in 2 inches of water in a 50 degree shop for 10-12 hours a day and at christmas time I work 7 days for 8 weeks between 12-16 hours a day. I havent gotten a pay raise in 3 years, I dont get overtime and no christmas bonus in the last 2 years. I am working on getting a state job, wish me luck.

Consider yourself lucky.
There were a lot of Republicans at my last job, both fiscally conservative and fiscally liberal. Either way, they complained about taxes all the time (the Dems complained about not having time). I always pointed out that 1) If you're paying taxes then you're making money and 2) Their paychecks came from defense contracts, which come from the feds....which come from federal taxes. Given that we were ~50% DoD development for a while, we were taking in way more than we were paying out in taxes.

I don't mean to be rude, but in some cases that may well be true. I had three jobs lined up before my last employer stopped paying me (5 weeks). Now, I have friends from school who still aren't properly employed 2-3 years after graduation. They are all good people, and most of them are smart too, so I'm not saying it's always easy. However, if I quit my job tomorrow I could be employed next week, so I'm of the opinion that loving what you do is very important. Additionally, I find that people perform better when they are happy with what they do.

Good luck! That job sounds terrible.

Now I feel bad about complaining about my 40 hour / week job in an air conditioned office...

I hate my job. I wouldn't hate it as much if people weren't so rude. I talk to an average of 45-50 people a day and 75% of them are angry, screaming, yelling, being rude because they can't take the time to analyze and figure things out for themselves. Or they just want to be angry because they made the mistake of going over what they were allotted and they shouldn't have to deal with it. I'm looking for another job its just impossible right now.
