SECRETS QUESTION:
What’s the worst thing about your job?

  • TQOTD: the worst thing about my job is Robin. She does whatever the frog she wants, and nobody questions it. She's in a position of power if you will, which makes it so much worse. Over the last few months, our company has hired 3 of her relatives, for positions she magically created. Can we say nepotism?
  • Well, there’s a looming possibility of a strike in the next few days. #IWorkForGM
  • The elderly move slow and don’t answer their phones or check messages. I love my job tho! They just put the schedule behind
  • The pay. Otherwise, my coworkers and boss are exceptional.
  • Cleaning public bathrooms.
  • Nothing. I love my job. I get to work full time from home while taking care of my 2 year old!
  • My job is the worst thing about my job. I'm so over it. Been a cleaner for nearly ten years. People can just live and work in their filth. I'm done cleaning up after them.
  • I guess it would have to be if someone cancels me cleaning their home at the last second because then I’m out money.
  • Nothing!! I love my job and my clients! It’s like hanging out with my friends all day and making them look pretty. I love it. ❤️
  • The difference between work ethics between generations. My paycheck relies on a entry level positions productivity. Mostly younger aged
  • The daily 2 hour commute from Grand Rapids to East Lansing.
  • Health insurance companies.
  • Management! It's a solid company but its easy to be forgotten about if you never listen to your employees...
  • Having to go in every day. So over rated!
  • Which one? The full time is an hour drive one way, the second is cleaning in over 120* temps, am too old for this but gotta pay the bills
  • The loud machines
  • My lazy coworkers.
  • Having to show up every day!
  • Rude customers, working holidays.
  • the paycheck
  • Gossip, Who do you trust or believe.

  • My alarm
  • The fact that it's not what i went to school for.....but the pay and vacation time are hard to beat so I stay...lol
  • Too far of a drive
  • Being a stay at home mom. Thinking of meals, No one knows what they want to eat.ugg.
  • Ppl thinking u make a crapload of $ but in reality ur pay is so low even ur dog & cats could qualify for food stamps!
  • People who never have worked in the food industry.. we eat at 2am.. after feeding so many others. I love my job... but sometimes I get hangry lol
  • Politics
  • Poison ivy!
  • Getting up at 2:00am
  • Never knowing if we have to work Saturdays until just before. Lack of raises is a total moral buster.
  • #secrets Worst thing about my job is people running my flashing red lights! I'm a school bus driver, you don't know if that kid is crossing the road. The next worst thing, is stopping at a stop staring up the driveway with my reds flashing waiting for your kid to come running down the driveway while I hold up traffic for what seemed to be no reason, but you didn't think to call the bus garage to tell us your kid didn't need Transportation today...

  • The worst thing is working for a snot nose punk engineer who thinks he knows everything. Dude is literally a gift from God with a masters in no common sense.
  • Worst thing about my job. The lack of work. I work about 5 hours a week in a 40hour work week. It makes for a long day just doing nothing all the time.
  • Owners of companies and current company I work for don't like the truth being told to them ever they think they're always correct they are never wrong
  • The worst part about my job is that we are a small shop of just 8 people. Everyone is so jaded because of wages haven't kept up with cost of living, and work place perks continue to get cut. This causes everyone to have a negative attitude and to talk behind one another's backs. The negativity is very draining.
  • Worst thing about my job is the annoying coworkers.....just let us work from home. Would be so much better than being around ppl you don't care for all day...especially ones that don't shower on a regular basis
  • The worst thing about my job. I have to work with slow lazy people who do not care about the product we are making. Lazy people drive me nuts

  • The worst thing about my job is also one of my favorite things. I'm the only woman who works where I work and I'm constantly getting customers asking if they can speak to one of the guys. But my favorite thing to do because I know more than any of the guys is to go get one of the guys and let the customer asked them the question that they don't know the answer to and then I go ahead and answer it for them
  • #secrets worst thing is that we are pretty much always behind because *they* keep piling more and more on us and then refuse to properly train new people...because we are behind...which makes us fall behind more. Help! Please send new managment!
  • I work in a school, and the worst part of my job is unsupportive parents. #secrets

  • Worst thing about my job is listening to one person complain about everything and get away with some pretty shady stuff for months even after our boss was made aware of it....
  • Our management is the absolute worst, they hold periodic meetings to ask us how they can improve and then change absolutely nothing
  • My job---- Welcome to the jungle it gets worse here everyday.
  • Tqotd: the worst part about my job is coming home smelling 90. I don't know why we get stinky when we get old but yeesh
  • Having to show up to get paid. But really, the industry I'm in has changed so much in 20 years that it is nothing like what I signed up for. The new changes aren't fun to deal with.
  • The worst thing about my job is definitely my stupid boss that knows nothing and the pay!
  • TQOTD: the worse thing about my job is an incompetent co-worker worker who passes the blame and can't take responsibility for their mistakes. So now there are all kinds of new policies and procedures put into place, that we never needed before, because one person can't do their job.
  • When coworkers stink and try to cover up their stank with perfume and just end up smelling like Victoria's fish sticks

  • I'm a lady electrician and the worst part of my job is working with all guys! They are more drama filled than girls! we need more females in this field !
  • The worst thing about my job is that we're understaffed. There is a guy who works with me that likes to make a lot of religious and political comments that are inappropriate in the workplace we usually let it go and ignore it but now he now is under the assumption that I'm trying to get him fired and has made my life hell at work. Now he is telling everyone at work that they will hire anyone to run a department who has no talent or skill. #HeadphonesInAllDay
  • In the words famously spoken by Taylor Swift "You need to calm down!"

Here's what I mean.. my boss and i are in a relationship and working all day with him and coming home to him is hard. While at work i have to keep it a sercet so no other co workers can find out. Click of 6, would you find another job to stay in the relationship with your boss or end the relationship? ( please dont use my name)
  • #tqotd I love my job most days, but the constant flow of people in my office asking questions about how to do things that my 4 year old could handle infuriates me. I'm an HR manager.
  • I have a co-worker that wears the same clothes everyday and she is a smoker. This has been going on for years
  • I work in child care and the worst thing is... Call in's and people leaving on break and not coming back. We are a ratio run business and when coworkers do this... It really puts a strain on relationships.
  • We have a coworker who is somewhat of a second boss. Consistency is a huge issue and drives us crazy. One day she wants us to do something and the next we get yelled at or scolded for doing the thing she asked us to do the previous day and told it's not our job, and then the following day or week it's all of a sudden our job to do again....‍♀️
  • The worst thing about my job is the people.... most people in my organization are self serving, back stabbing and manipulative and I feel like the only way they know how to get ahead for promotions is to make others look bad rather than just stand out in theirs.. the good ones get out. I have less than 3 years until I can retire from here and move on with my life!!
  • Worst thing about my job is the front office. Working with kids that have been through trauma or kick you bite you etc. And Front office doesn't care about our health
  • My job sucks because I go week to week not knowing if I'm going to get paid
  • I am a dietitian and the worst part about my job is people assuming I will make them a full on meal plans and help them lose weight. I like helping people, but you got to pay me for that shit
