My last post talked about a job that I actually was quite reluctant to take up but due to money issues, I decided to take it. As expected, the job sucked big time. It was the third time in a row that I had little things to do at work. The pay was lower than my last full time job stated in my resume, but I think it was fair (and I did mention this to the HR manager during my exit interview) to pay that salary to me with that kind of jobscope. My boss was good though in terms of flexibility. In fact, he was too lenient for the good of the organisation. He allowed me to take time off and never mention anything when it comes to long lunches. I had a good time with non-work aspects in this job frankly speaking. Unlike the insurance company that I entered, where I felt alone, the colleagues in this organisation were on the whole either ok (those that didn’t like me, I did not have to work that closely with them) and during lunch time, I have a fixed small group of colleagues and interns to have lunch with. My friends and sister were working nearby as well, so I was okay. However, it was unbearable after working for five months where there were days when you literally just spent the whole day watching two movies and some cartoons to while away the time.
I believe it is normal for most people. I would like to reiterate, although no one likes a busy job that literally force you to plan right down to the minute to FULLY make use of the time to finish the ever-piling work, it is NOT happiness nor luck to have a job that trains you to read all the reading sites as much as up to eight hours a day.
