What do you like best about your job?

At the end of the night, I get to go home

Melodi, 19
, OH   USA

What I like best about my job is that I can basically wear anything I want to the office. I even walk around barefoot to which I feel the most comfortable.

I work at Target. It's just part-time. I guess it's all right.. we get a lot of hot guys from Oakland University who shop for razors and milk and stuff, so that's a bonus.. other than that, probably the Hudson's discount or the flexible hours.

There is nothing to like about my actual job. All I do is answer the phone and talk to pissed off people about their defective purchases. Yeeehaaaaawww! But the people I work with are awesome. The office is full of smart, funny, laid back people and I actually have a good time at work. And they don't look down on the wierd girl with maroon hair.

Well, I'm not currently working, but I will be starting a new job the first Wednesday of June and I think what I'll like best about it is that I'm getting paid to do something I usually would do for free (helping out with kids at the church).

Angela, 16
Bella Vista

Yuck. Very little. I hate this job. I suppose it's good that it's rather informal and there aren't many people here - if one or two of them are out or at lunch, I've got the place mostly to myself. Also I can pretty much slack off most of the time. Technically this is a decent job, but it's *so* not what I want to be doing.

I don't have a job, and there is absolutely nothing I like about school, except maybe for the fact that it makes 3:15PM seem far more significant.

Shanna, 16
Cardiff  ENGLAND

I work out of my home, so I'm here when my daughter leaves and comes home from school.

Cathy, 26

I don't know.. any number of things. It pays well - it'll get me travelling to the mediterranean four-five times this year.. people are nice.. they let me start late, if i compensate in the evenings.. its for a good cause.. topic is one i'm well acquainted with, and much interested in, through studies  etc... i'm continuing something of a family tradition..colleagues are all colours, from all cultures.. work is content- heavy, and you're invited to think along in what is a not-so hierarchical structure..

i guess i should love this job.. guess i should.

I really like being able to create or foster environments where others can really shine as individuals. I like that I can see concrete results my work.

Felicia, 35

I do home care for a lady with alzheimers and the best part of the job is that I am helping her have a better quality of life than if she were in a nursing home. I really like my job although it will not last forever

Becki, 49
, OR   USA

I'm just-a-housewife which gives me a very flexible working schedule and a great deal of freedom to make my own plans.

Jill, 60

I'm not in a job, but I'm a university student of law. What do I like best? For everyone not in a legal profession, this will sound strange - the beauty of the law and of the science of law. It makes one realize that most of the time the lawmakers actually thought about what they did, and that they tried to find a good solution.

It is our obligation to make sure that the law actually works and is applied in a just way.

Holger, 21

the money


I have a part-time job at a pizza place where I make hoagies and wings and stuff like that. What I like most is that I am in the back in the kitchen and I don't have to deal with the public. I know that sounds bad but I have very low patience for some people. Not everyone, of course, but some can be so rude. It's nice to just be able to do your job and not have to have a smile plastered on your face and put up with those people.

Jennifer, 19

I like that I don't have to "hide" my faith. The nonprofit that I work for is unabashedly Christian.

Laura, 36
, MA   USA

I guess the thing I like best about my job is the fact that I HAVE one. It's not a great job by any means but it pays the bills, and if I have to work, I guess I'd rather work here than most places. And Eva and Ernest make it bearable.

Reba, 51
, MD   USA

I love the challenge of taking a complete botch up created in our lab, and not only solving the mystery of it from beginning to end, but then the wonderful pleasure I get from calling and informing the customer that the problem is solved. I also enjoy the fact that I get a chance to be creative from time to time.

Fisch, 45
, CT   USA

I get paid. And sometimes the calls are slow. Other than that, it's a total whip.

Firelady, 23

The diversity! Application development involves both working with people and working alone, intense coding and more relaxed design of forms and reports. No two days are the same. And as a contract developer, I move from project to project, having the opportunity to learn about different types of business and work with different types of people.

Jane, 60
West Linn

I like best the freedom the owners provide. It's like not, worrying about what you did wrong, more like heading in the right direction always. It is wonderful.

Fish, 40
Port Dover  CANADA

No one's looking over my shoulder all the time. I can fool around for hours, as long as I get the work that needs to get done, done in a timely fashion.

Talia, 23

I don't get paid for my job, and I regularly spend a lot of time outside of work. I do get to live in a dorm with other college students, and I do get free meals. It balances out. =)

Eric, 19
Beverly Hills

The people. : )

Karen, 21

I like the money a lot. Also, I work with a lot of really nice and funny people so that really adds to it.

What do I like best about my job? You mean, besides Taco Salad? Well, of course I like the people I work with (they reek of awesomeness). Of course, the parts reeks of awesomeness as well...

When I'm teaching and I can see the light bulb go on in their little minds.

Tracy, 24

I like watching suggestions people have become reality.  Sometimes it happens slowly but when it does happen it's exciting and rewarding. Rats! I guess I lost my chance to use the word "fruition" again. Oh well.
