Work Ethic

I work in a call center. I don't like it, and I don't plan on doing it longer than I need to. I probably won't even put it on my resume. However, I believe that whatever job you find yourself doing, you have an obligation to do it to the best of your

I work in a call center. I don't like it, and I don't plan on doing it longer than I need to. I probably won't even put it on my resume. However, I believe that whatever job you find yourself doing, you have an obligation to do it to the best of your ability. It's called work ethic. It doesn't matter if you hate the job. It doesn't matter if you're underpaid. You knew what the wage was, and what the job entailed, when you accepted the position. You made a committment. By all means, look for something better. But in the meantime, do the job you're being paid to do. You may not like everyone you have to work with. You may not like some of your superiors. But you're in the workforce, so presumably you're an adult. Are you going to act like one, or are you going to act like a 14 year old who has to sit next to her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend in class?

I watch the behavior of some of the people I work with, and I think, who raised you people? TV? The internet? You have no work ethic whatsoever. You wander in late, you sit there in "not ready" for way longer than you need to finish up your case notes. You call in sick when you're really just hung over. And you mock people who actually do their jobs.

I am starting to think that some people work in call centers because they're not fit for anything better.
