    Taking a shot because I HATE my job

    Advertisements
    loathe it, really.

    Everyone picks on me for every damned thing, and I know it's all in good fun and they mean to harm but to a self conscious, timid, anxious person like me it's pure hell.

    Every day I feel worthless because I'm not good at my job, which is on me.

    Then I feel embaressed, ashamed, belittled, ridiculed,etc. because of all the little things I get teased for...and I'm not sure who that is on

    At any rate, I am cooking a burrito and drinking a beer after my 1 shot..no, I'm not getting drunk, just a little buzz

    Isn't this a fairly new job? Thats stinky that you feel this way after such a short time.

    Logistics; customer service and dispatch. It's not even that I hate the work, I am almost enjoying the work, it's just the environment. Maybe I'm being picky and it's like any office setting but I'm not adjusting well. And I'm not detail oriented, in the least. I'm way out of my league. I understand what I am supposed to be doing but I feel like I can't do it quick enough or learn quick enough.

    I have a 30 day review tomorrow and if he asks how I like it or if I think it's for me or anything of the sort I'm going to be honest and tell him that I'd like to stick it out (ie: I have been applying other places) but that I don't know if it's a good fit and I feel like I'm having a hard time transitioning from a very active job to a desk job

    One way or another things will get better. A month is not that long everything is still new. You havent developed a routine yet maybe. Or one of the jobs you applied for will come through. Good luck.
