YUP IM BORED TOO.
Sounds the same as my job. Not only do I not get paid very well, and even though we are sometimes very busy, I'm so bored that I can barely bring myself to do the work. I will do a minute of work, then go online for 5 minutes.
When the work piles up I do it all really quickly then just go back online. I am good at my job and can do it fast but its not a challenge in the slightest.
I have a lot of potential and would like to feel satisfied at the end of the working day.
I feel useless, unvalued and just another office worker. And I work for a massive American company in the UK, you'd be surprised at how much they do not care about their staff.
The managers are rubbish and check up on everyone constantly which is sooo annoying so you have to pretend you are busy when you aren't.
I do prefer it when its busy but its still boring.....
I don't think we should have to keep saying sorry and excusing our thoughts for the people who havent got a job 'in this climate'. We still have the right to hate our jobs and be bored!
of course I am grateful for my wages every month, who isn't?
The rich get richer and we are just the workers. Things don’t change!
Rant. Over!! Thanks for sharing everyone.
Hi, unfortunately office work is boring. I was an admin assistant and then team leader for 15 years. During that time I don’t think there were many days where I could honestly say it was fun.
I work from home now and guess what? Most days are mundane and boring but at least I am my own boss.
The trouble is boredom can be very stressful, I know. Now that I know the dangers of stress I make every effort to make my days as varied as possible to relive that stress. I know this can be difficult in an office environment, but there are little things you can do to make things a little better for yourself.
