    About 5 weeks ago I started a domiciliary care job. This means I care for people in their own homes. This

    The reason why I hate my job is because of certain clients needs being too much and the fact that I have to travel a lot from place A to place B then to place C and I do not drive. The jurneys themselves make me sick sometimes. I also sometimes do not like the people I work with if I have to be pared up with someone.

    I am doing this job because I am on a gap year and want the relevant skills and experience needed to work in the Health and Social care sector possibly in the near future(I am still not sure if university is for me)

    The thing is when I started is was not half as bad but now the manager seems to be putting me on call like today because the agency is short of staff.

    I am not superman, I do not drive, it will obviously take me more than 15 mins to get to each clients house by busy especially on rainy days like last week or days where there is a lot of traffic.

    My parents want me to stick it out because they do not work at the present moment and we are kind of in a financial limbo.

    If I was to apply for a new job it could take ages and it I know it is better to stay rather than quit suddenly as I only started a few weeks ago.

    I guess beggars cannot be choosers

    I don't know what outcome to expect out of this thread but I guess I just wanted to let my feelings out in writing.

    Any advice will be much appreciated in advance.

    Stick it out if you can whilst applying to other jobs, perhaps a care home job with no travelling would be a better idea?

    I have heard that care home/ nursing home jobs are even more stressful as you work with more people and there is lots to do.

    I am really in a limbo

    Dear Friend! Hectic commuting and lousy bosses are very common phenomenon in jobs now a days. Which makes it feel like hell even the job you really love. I had pretty much same experience many times that you shared. I love work, my profession but high targets and unnecessary taunting behavior of the bosses put me under so much pressure that I had to leave the jobs one after another. Therefore, I decided to turn the wheel, and decided to live on my own terms. There are some very good online business opportunities that you can consider. Especially when you don't drive it would be luxury to work while staying at home and avoiding all the travelling hassle. If you need any help to make a best choice, please let me know.
