I wish I had a crystal ball…
Last year I after some hesitation decided to leave the job I was content with for a new job. A friend of mine encouraged me to do this, thinking it was a better opportunity. Reluctantly, I agreed to, and did it. I really wished I listened to my first intuition.. I regard this as the biggest mistake I have made so far in my life…. I have said that I hope this is as close to hell as I ever get.
I am at a place that makes parts for the auto companies, mainly General Motors. But that is not the problem, it is just a miserable place to work….
They work people like a slave, and the next day expect more and more. One person bitches at me to do something one way, and someone else comes by and bitches at me to do it another way. If something isn’t running right, and I’m making a lot of scrap they get pissed off at me for bothering them, as if I am supposed to know everything about a machine and part that I have only done twice. If I knew I wouldn’t ask for help.
I work at least 6 days every week, and some days 10-12 hours, and come home with no energy to do anything but lay around miserable and depressed.
I tried more than once to get my old job back, with no success…
I live in the state with the highest unemployment rate in the USA. Even though it is bad here, I would like to stay here. I have known others who packed everything up, put their house up for sale, and moved away to some other state, just to end up coming back with more turmoil then when they left.
I never went to college, and after working in this hellhole with other people who have college degrees and such, I have to wonder what is the point of college when they just end up with a miserable low paying job like this. 4 years ago
