      I actually like wht I do right now.
      It's not a sit at a desk type of job and I have flexible hours.
      I've been thinking abt the jobs tht I can get when I graduate and besides the higher pay am also looking at would I really like being in an office in a managerial post.

      yuh was going and say a "blow" take yuh mind out of the gutter young man :roll: :shock:


      Any way, I have always laid emphasis on the quality of my work and it does not matter what the job is. For me there is nothing more satisfying than knowing at the end of day I did my job and I did it well. I have and will always maintain that next to your children, the way you do your job is a reflection of who you are.

      job satisfaction - hmmmmmmmm......... an understandable boss, compensation for hard work, flexible working hours, promotion by merit instead of seniority....

      Look how they spam!

      Yes I agree with having and understanding Boss and supervisors.
      My previous supervisor and I never got along and things got so bad I considered a transfer. I hated HR and senior Bosses becos they did nothing to help. The person wud shout and bray at me etc in front of members of the Public and clerical staff members . They just moved the problem eventually without fixing it.
      I wonder if the Govt service wud ever have promotion by merit than by seniority. Then many of the older people wud get left back.
      I know people who wud work all their life and not get promoted becos of their seniority or lack of.
      In my workplace within the past few yrs we have had a lot of young persons coming in( with bad working habits but thts another story) so therefore the others behind them wud have a long wait for promotion.

      i think its because of the lack of a proper Perf App system....if ppl got increments based on their performance....they wld work harder...they don't ....they get it based on PSA negotiations with the CPO.....

      i think alot of them don't really care about getting increases since they satisfied about the fact that they get to leave early and stuff like that

      Are people really supposed to be satified in thier jobs, or is the most you can hope for plain contentment ? I have seen people change jobs looking for greener pastures and end up just as miserable in their previous job. Can we ever truly be happy to have to get up each day and come to work ?

      We have performance appraisals with recommendations for increments. Without tht appraisal I don't get an increment.
      My previous supervisor chose to give me bad reports and I said to hell with tht. Everyone knew he was personally attacking me and wasn't giving a genuine report.
      I am a Public Servant and I treat the people whom I serve as best as I can. But no one is going to come to me and give me attitude and feel I wud help you to the best of my ability. Alot of people come in and look down at us 'lowly' Gov't workers.
      I get my job done becos if I leave it today I wud still have to do it tmrw. I work alone with no assistant although everyone else in my section has one. But I still get the job done.

      i am unhappy in my current job with the slow pace of things..the process takes too long for things to happen...

      another reason ppl are unhappy adn may be the biggest reason is their bosses..most ppl leave their jobs because of their supervisors....actually there was something last year about this in the newspapers...

      People are unhappy with their lives so then tht seeps into being unhappy in the workplace.
      My ex supervisor had issues at home and saw me as an outlet to take out some of his frustration.
      Many people are in a job just to make a few $$$ to survive. Find something you like doing as a job and you wud have less unhappy people.
      Those who criticise our generation forget who raised it...
