The title says it all.
I like some of the people that I work with. My supervisor is so awesome, she totally has my back and understands all that I go through in my position because she used to be me 15 years ago (a temp for years before finally getting hired). My boss is the best, he's allowed me time off and opportunities to work from home when my daughter or mother were extremely sick (as a temp). And he's just cooler than a fan in the wintertime.
I like being able to travel with my job. In the last two years I've been to the Chicago area and Pittsburgh and loved every minute of it. I was supposed to go to the west coast a few months ago but because of issues at home, I wasn't able to. But just having that opportunity is something that I like about my job.
My favorite "B" word is benefits. I love 401(k)s, 403(b)s, health, dental, and vision insurance, life insurance, workman's comp, free flu shots at work, paid vacation time, paid sick days...if it's a benefit you are damn right I like it and I love it.
But my job? Not so much. Even though I do different things everyday, they are the same five or six things everyday. It's monotonous and so not exciting. I used to teach and being able to experience something 100% different from yesterday is what I'm used to and is what I like about a job. What I'm doing now, despite the traveling and occasional visiting employees or companies...I don't like what I do.
