Your not alone, I know how you feel! Everyday, it is so frustrating watching ungrateful people sit around all day on their asses like a bunch of chickens sitting on eggs about to hatch. While a handful of us work our asses off to run the show, our small organization gets gold stars as a whole...WTF?! Poor management to say the least.
I love what I do. but there have been days when I thought screw this!...oh well, those who work keep their jobs. I love my job aside from the worthless slackers...

I still think what you do is cool. I like machines...
Thanks. I had to remove 56 vanes last week in an LP vane assembly. Theres like 75 total. Usually the part is scrap with that much damage. Took a week to complete the first run. I can't remove more than 2 vanes in a row or it could weaken the shrouds. I'll be getting that part back again soon. Can't wait

Same. But I'm taking steps to change my scenery (noted earlier in this thread).

It's frustrating, tiring, and demotivating.

I guess I could be called a slacker . But I get paid to sit or stand and watch people work all day. I try and make sure that the people doing the work go home safely and still have all their body parts attached

"slacker" should be a job title, know matter what to do or where you work there's always one or two of them. We have one guy, I call him "chris" oh wait that is his name he does not do a thing all day. Everyone bitches and moans how this guy does nothing. I just don't understand how these people get away with it

I believe that if you include that info on that part of the application (where it asks if you've ever been convicted blah blah blah), and be honest about it, and you meet the minimum quals, you may still be considered. That of course doesn't mean you've got the job. The process our PD uses when hiring a new officer is very extensive and they dig deep into your past and present when it comes down to the background check. But if the charge was from yeeeeaaaarrrs ago and you've been clean since, then yeah, I'd say you have as good a shot as someone else vying for the job.

The bosses were off today so I did a little "Office Space" experiment. I did nothing all day. I sat at my computer and watched every Jeep video out there on YouTube. I feel so worn out tonight from not doing any thing all day. I also feel like I cheated the company out of a days worth of pay. That in my book is the same as stealing.

I was raised to have a good work ethic and will continue to be a hard worker. I know some people that literally work harder to get out of work than if they had just done their job in the first place.

So now that I know how it feels to be a worthless slacker, I'll have more self gratification at the end of a "work" day.

I am a Missouri State Trooper. I did CMV Enforcement for 5 years and have now been a regular road Trooper for a little over 3 years. It's good to see so many LEO's on here.
