As the title states do you love the job you have now or do you hate it? If not already in your dream job, what would your dream job be?

I'll go first, Cable TV/Phone/Internet install contractor (company not to be named at this time. I hate this job more then any job I have ever had!! The hours are beyond long(up at 530 in at 630 till your done) and the pay is ****!!! Never see my family anymore or for that matter I no longer have a life working 6-7 days a week.

Dream job would be a Chef or a Police office. I have always loved cooking and if forced to choose just one I would choose to be a chef.

Plan on returning to culinary college vary soon for my BA in cooking/restaurant management.

Feel free to name the company you work for, or feel free to not name it.

I drive a truck, and miles lately have fallen way off on my daily gig.

Dream job? OK: I go to a "school" to learn reloading, survival, handgun/rifle/shotgun tactics and practices, hand to hand fighting (geared towards older guys). Now, this school is paying me $4000/wk that I attend, has outstanding benefits and very good looking teacherettes and will go on for 20 years right here in my home town. Also, we'll learn auto mechanics, household handiman essentials and so on. I go from about 0900 to about 1400 M-F, with 4 weeks of paid vacation a year, five personal days off a year and a $5000 bonus on my birthday. THATS my dream job.

It's a love/hate relationship. I definitely enjoy working on cars but sometimes the people and lack of work make it bad. My dream job would probably have be a fishing guide.

I would not mind testing guns for a living, or work in the gn industry en large. Dream job would be multi-millionaire, sorry, but that's just it.

I had my ideal job before I retired. USAF jet fighter pilot. Unfortunately I got too old. That's a young man's job. I find retirement to be an ideal job now. I do what I want when I want. I have many interests so I am never bored.

Sig fault.
My dream job was getting paid to ride a motorcycle. I worked for a Central Ohio Funeral Escort service. Civilian position using yellow lights on the bikes. Loved the work, loved the people I worked with. There were other issues that led me to quit after almost 7years.

Right now I work for ServiceMaster clean. I mainly do disaster restoration work. My dream job is to be some sort of wildlife resource officer out west in colorado or montana.

Generally speaking, I tend to take the mindset that work will be a "mixed bag" of good and bad, like anything else. I find that even hard work can be manageable and likeable at times, if there are people around me to support me and back me up. Some places where I have worked the same type of job have done this reasonably well, and other have failed miserably, in my opinion.

I've always wanted to be a personal exercise trainer. Get paid to hang out in the gym. :biggrin: I may get the opportunity to give it a go. I need to get CPR certified first though.

I'm retired, and a job is only a means to an end. There are times when you must repeat this mantra.....

"IT'S ONLY A JOB, IT'S ONLY A JOB"

Dream job... Humm, shooting as a pro where you get free guns, free ammo, paid expenses, could be a hoot, but then I have never walked a mile in their shoes either....

I have been in the auto service business at dealerships for over 25yrs and I HATE it. Just stuck in it. My dream job is to fix and flip houses. Love that type of work.

I have done just about everything under the sun in a relatively short amount of time. I suppose I would like to retire as a college prof.

I gotta agree with the retirees. I retired about 10 years ago and it beats anything I did before. My only complaint is that we do things backward. I would prefer to have retired at age 18 and then gone to work at about 65 to pay the bills I accumulated.
