No option for "meh, it's ok"
I was a florist for 10 years, then i moved to Denmark and couldn't find work due to the fact I didn't speak danish...
So I fell into cleaning work, and now I do that full time, the moneys decent, I get to work alone in peoples houses or a doctors surgery with ipod on, it's pretty hard work though, although I guess it helps keep me fit!
I despise my job. The only thing I like about it is the people who work with me. I was hired on as a cashier at the Dollar Tree, and a week later was offered a position as an Assistant Manager. I took it for the pay raise (+1.75/hr) which I'm thinking now was a mistake. The hours are consistent, but my shifts are randomized, the clientele is incredibly bad, the pay isn't very good, and the stress levels are ridiculously high.
I love doing my animation contracts, i'd do a lot of the concept art for free but I get paid so it's super awesome. Otherwise I enjoy building computers but it's so mundane I could leave it behind and I fucking hate working security but the work is solid and pays well, but the drunken idiots make me want to just find a solid source of income in animation.

Working as a Chef at a restaurant with people I don't enjoy working with doesn't cut it for me.
Alright, I earn a lot of money. Enough to get by without much of a problem.
But the people I work with show a complete disinterest in showing proper customer service and making the food properly. They are here for the money, not the job.
That makes it unpleasant for me to work there, as I firmly enjoy listening to Customer feedback and making everything as good as I can.
People with dead eyes working just for money is not fun working with basically.

Obviously though, there will always be better jobs out there, but I'm not in a hurry to go pursue those yet.
I'm a brewmaster! Working in a brewery in which I am able to drink if I want to So yes, Im pretty happy :b
I'm a Student Representative for a large electronic corporation that also makes video game consoles, I demo brand new products to other students and host events that involve students on my campus. My boss is in another state and my hours are chosen by me, but i have all the responsibility that comes with having to set your own hours.
I don't like it much at all.
I would say I love my job 80% of the time. Majority of the time it is great to interact with students, it's extremely rewarding when a student finally understand a concept and you know you are responsible for it. It is one of those jobs that when I am 80 years old and sitting in my recliner half asleep, I will be able to look back at what I did in my life and feel like I made a difference.
The downside comes from the administration. Occasionally, at the school I am at, the administration likes to schedule long meetings after work to explain something that could be done in 5 minutes. Also they are obsessed with professional development right now and keep assigning projects that take away from precious time I could be planning better lessons.
Heh i dont currently have a job now that im fulltime student at the university. But before i started, i worked for a few years at a store to save up money for apartment etc. Anyway that job will haunt me for the rest of my life, i had no idea how crazy, ungrateful, disguesting people/humans could be. Never in my life seen so much rudeness etc, and the blindness of people. But ofc even with people screaming at your face, i had to smile and be all nice, and sorry for your trouble and welcome back and what not. While inside i wanted to right out crush them, ooooow so much anger inside, but smiling on the outside. Wonderful time! Not. There was only 1 out of 1million times a raged back at a person while working at the store.
But since im soon an archaeologist, and i love archaeology, and i have tried being out in small jobs in the field. And i loved it. Totally worth all the studying, and i will not go back to hell in the store ^^
Now go forth... unleash the tides of Doom... Upon all those... Who would oppose us.
Personally I can always find something to keep me interested; I've taken a year off between contracts a couple of times, and only went looking for another when the money was about to run out.
