How long would you stay at your job if you could be guaranteed the salary you want plus the benefits you need but would have to do very boring and repetitive work?

If you could be guaranteed you would find a new job within a month that paid about the same but had a very different yet equally repetitive assignment, would you leave?

  1. As long as i can put up with it. Everyone has a breaking point, when you get there, you'll know. Money isn't everything.

  3. Then do it! Once you feel you've done your time and you've made your mark then its ok to do what you want.
    If more people had jobs they actually loved and enjoyed, the world would be a happier place.

  5. The trick seems to be to have some kinda OTHER thing that you do to take your mind off work. Those people that leave work as soon as its closing time are probably going sky-diving or running with the bulls in Mexico.

  8. In these hard times, I would stick with it until I can find something better... but hey aren't most jobs like that? But having a roast or hobby on the side that you love helps!

  9. Well honestly I was in just that situation the other day and I quit. not only because it was boring but some darkness that was going on as well. At the end of the day I realized that it was either I quit or they'ld fire me because i wasn't motivated to do my job anymore (sick n tired of it). As a result I switched things up. I"m happier now, I"m doing what I really want to do, with some of what i used to do on the side (but in the minority of my time).

    Yay for me.

  12. Make the switch. Make the switch. Make the switch. Typed thrice because of Owen's dislike of succinctness.
