I quit my job a week ago and started a new one this week. I'm super confused because the new job isn't what I thought it was.
+Worked with computers
+worked in NYC
+my boss and I became friends
-3 hour total commute daily
-I worked every single evening from home and a lot of weekends.
-no commute pay
-no time to pack lunch so I spent $15-20 a day on food alone
+Union, no chance of getting fired
+after 6 months, great benefits
+manly job that does cool stuff
+Dad is so proud of me
-I don't like the job itself. the work is not challenging or stimulating
-dirty. wet. cold. outside.
-wake up at 6am
-no computer to play with when it is slow
It sucks because my old boss said he was ready to give me a raise and everything. And this new job just...feels wrong. I have only been at it for 3 days but it just feels wrong. Maybe I miss my computer-skills. Maybe I am just nervous. Maybe it really is a bad fit.
I could try this job out a bit more and see how it goes, or maybe try to get back into that field in the future. Not sure what to do here. Can you guys help? (More info on request).
