Do You Hate Your Job?

By Scot Herrick | Cube Rules Commentary

A long time ago, MSNBC ran an article called Do You Hate Your Job? It’s an interesting article in that they offered a few things to do if you, in fact, hated your job.

A quick summary of their suggestions:

  • Move to a more acceptable job within the company.
  • Suggest a better schedule to your supervisor if that is what you want.
  • Negotiate an intern if you feel overwhelmed with tasks.
  • Take a training course in an area where you feel weakest in your job skills
  • Negotiate the modifiable items of the job: discrepancies in pay or promotions, problem co-workers, job tasks.

I didn’t think these were such hot suggestions for fixing things that you hated about your job.

Have any of you successfully negotiated any of these items? Did they make you hate your job any less?
