Hate my Job, Love my Crews.
Anyone else hate their jobs but love the people they work with?

I flag for utility roadwork (mainly gas, but water, sewage, powerlines, etc) and while I absolutely hate standing in one spot and not actually DOING something, I love the crews I work for aside from a couple few.

I get hollered at for talking to my crews most times my supervisor comes out, but I'm always specifically requested back to many of the jobs. The crew I'm working for now talks to me like I'm on their crew, joke around, etc. The foreman today just told me he was gonna kick his operator off the excavator and throw me on it to dig for him, lol. That already made my day, lol. I know how to run an excavator and I can dig a nice, clean hole in the time it takes most of these operators to dig a messy hole that makes clean-up harder at the end of the day. I just have to get into one of the contracting companies, lol. I was told one foreman/owner of a different crew won't hire a female operator because "if they rip out a main or service line the whole company is done". Which, sexist, but okay, just gives me someone else to prove wrong :p

Anywho..I get to stay on this job with this crew for a good while and I'm glad.(: I am glad their newest operator went to a different job though, all he did was complain about how he's overqualified, lmao. Honestly, I'm overqualified for my flagging job, but I'm not complaining, I'm just trying to get a job I'm qualified for, yet not overqualified.

But..anyone else have any stories about disliked jobs but lovely people to work with :p

That's like the story of my life xD I've worked in the service Industry (Restaurants, specifically) since I was fifteen. I always love my coworkers, but the work is absolutely awful.

working in jobs.
hiya i work for the railroad here in england.
im in charge of a gang of guys and we have a good laugh every day.
it makes the time go quicker to we do a thoughtnight on days and on nights.
the way life is going companys want you to act like machines and have no other life in the job.
i think we can all have a laugh and a bit of horse play it livens up the spirit and the team has a good laugh.
and the work gets done quicker.

I'm the opposite. I LOVE my job and my patients. (Dialysis technician) But I can't stand the people I work with! They are lazy, tattle-tales that complain and moan and whine and cry about everything.

Yout show up to work, do your job, and go home. Simple as that.

we are supposed to be a united front, calm peaceful, and stress free. These patients are already sick/dying/stressed enough with not kidneys. They don't need to come to the clinic 3 Times a week to attitudes, drama and complaining on the treatment floor.

As long as the paychecks there on Friday and it's correct I'm good.

It's far better than being on the Obama plan.

LOL! Better than top pay, "Cute guys, nice butts."! Not everyone has such a good view out the "office window".

Iseul 08-21-2013 11:10 AM

I'm really lovin my view out here, lol. Boss with a great butt gets pissed at his workers an comes over to me to complain since I'm the "boss" of my 1-3 partners and I know how he feels, haha.
And his smile is just to DIE for, lol.
