If you're stuck doing a clerical job and all they make you do is Dust, Vacuum, clean..should you quit and how?

I"ve stayed for 1 year and 1/2, and although it was advertised to be a Scanning project all we do is clean, dust, vacuum and move boxes.. This was not what i signed up for and i always question why the dumb boss makes us clean a dirty house , clean toilets etc. The only reason i've stayed this long is cause I need money and prior to this my job search was failing badly. But the longer i stay the more i question why i'm here. I dont even use any of the computer skills i have and we dont do anything that requires much brainwork. Also because of this job, i got my shoulder injured badly and my knee too(i'm didn't tell but i'm fine now, just with pain and abnormalities but whatever). now i have permanent injuries and it's not even from a Job i liked. I dont know how to quit though, if i quit im jobless and won't hav emoney. I'm debt and i need to make monthly payments: Rent, school loans, car payments. I've had some co-workers that got better jobs elsewhere after a while of working here. But i dont know how they did it. Plus they were studying in some technical schools and they new they have JObs guranteed upon graduation, that's how one of my coworkers managed to switch jobs. I'm 28 male. thnks

if you are that unhappy you need to look for another job. but don't quit until you find one. don't put yourself in financial difficulty and add that to your stress. life is too short to go through it unhappy.

Okay I understand your situation. What u do is you sit down and talk to the manager. U tell him/her that u aren't exactly happy with what they are paying you for. If u don't feel comfortable saying that u can always say u have found a better paying job. Once u quit, go online and file for unemployment. My bf have the... More
