Stress at Work

I've been stressing about my job. The place is tolerable but I feel like I'm not making enough money

I just finished my 5hr long interview! There’s probably 70% chance I’ll be rejected since I didn’t do perfectly, but I am proud of myself for not embarrassing myself. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

There are only so many times that I will try before I give up completely

Do you ever feel so fragile, like you're weak and frail, when you think about having to return to work?

My layoff notice went into effect last week. Supposed to transition back to a shitty shift work position on a unit I have not worked on in ten years. Really wanted to have found a new job by now. Feeling very unready to go back there. Lots of bad memories. Spoke to my doctor about taking sick leave. Worried I am just avoiding the problem, but I really need more time to accept this.

Does anyone else have a coworker/boss/partner who cannot give any positive feedback w/o attaching “but...”?

I got my dream job about a year ago. I was so, so happy. My hard work felt like it had paid off. Then a person on temporary assignment came and ruined it all. Their incompetence and ability to charm those above him lead to the near failure of/three/ major projects, and there is finger-pointing and politics brewing like mad. I feel so stressed and upset. I just want it all to be over.

My boss is a bully. His feedback is valid, but it comes from a place of hostility and judgement rather than from a place of encouragement. I need to build my self confidence and recognize my self worth.

I wouldn’t say I’m stressed, but very nervous for this job interview. I haven’t done an interview since my last job which was 5 years ago. Please pray for me!

I have an interview today and while I am pretty excited, I am also VERY nervous.

If I take no days off work for the next year and a half, I can save enough time off to quit three months early.

And today I took three pills to try to calm down enough to walk back into my office.

Can’t stand working with people who are completely lazy and do the complete minimum at work and make the same hours and pay as me and I bust my butt. It makes me cringe.

I feel I just eat , get ready for next day sleep 8 hrs and back to same stress , customer service call center is a pain in the ass I have to listen idiots every day. No choice I have to keep in this, for at least 9 more months - I’ve been there taking calls for 5 years and a half.

It’s stressful being interviewed, but it is also stressful (for me) to interview people. It’s also hard to talk well of my company to the interviewee when honestly, I don’t like working here at all!

This time of year is so busy

It’s really hard to try to work with people who want to walk all over you, blame you for not doing their work and then say “oh I did my work” when they didn’t. Or they don’t abide by what they are assigned to do.

Been working many hours with little pay and I’m so exhausted. I finally have a break as I have three days off this week and I’m going to spend time with my friends and enjoy my own company:)

People keep quitting at work, and instead of hiring someone new, the university is trying to save money and spread the work load. Except it isn't spreading. I am currently doing 3 people's jobs with no raise. Trying to keep up with it all when students are about to come back is about to kill me. I feel like I am having a panic attack non stop all the time.

You have an interview tomorrow. But you can do this. You are just as deserving as the other candidates. You have worked hard, prepared and prayed for this. You will not let anxiety take over again, for once you’ll take control. You will take the confidence because your life depends on this job. You will be confident during group discussions, you will go in there fighting for your dream job. You will not be defeated if you don’t get it. You will try all over again.

Went to my interview the other day only to find out it was one of those pyramid schemes. Wasted my time and gas. Been applying everywhere to get some sort of second income.. never been so stressed!! Hopefully I can get this loan to go thru so I can consolidate my bills and not worry too much bout anything else.

I'm moving forward after getting word a job I really wanted will go to someone else; I waited weeks for their response.
