You may feel like an underachiever and at the bottom of the employment food chain working at a job you hate like McDonalds. You may feel stuck and embarrassed. You may be living paycheck to paycheck barley getting by, wondering what you did to get you in the tough situation you are in.

If you are working at McDonalds, or any job you hate? Don't feel shame or lower than anyone else. Give yourself a pat on the back for putting up with this tough work life you have been living. You are working and you are trying to get by. In fact, it takes a very strong person to put up with a job they can not stand with little to show for it. You could be sitting around feeling defeated looking for free ways to make some money. Instead you are taking on the struggle and fighting your way through life. Even though you feel like you are living a nightmare working at a job you hate. Don't give up just yet and realize that you have only benefited from this tough situation you are in. There is an advantage of putting up with a job you can not stand like McDonalds. Here are 5 advantages of working at a job you hate.

1. Working at a job like McDonalds has given you a tolerance for working at a job you hate. It has put your spirit to the test and has tested your level of effort and how much you can put up with. Getting yourself up every morning to face a job you dread is an accomplishment and it has only made you stronger. You may feel negative about the situation you are in but, you should try to be optimistic and know that it is not too late. You are not going to be working at this job for ever.

2. The experience you have gained from a job like McDonalds will show in many other jobs you may have. Customer service, counting, inventory, working in a fast pace environment, putting up with a stressed out angry manager. It is funny how much you have learned in such a small work environment. Think of the job you are working at as a little boot camp getting you prepared for your next step to a better career.

3. Living small and not having that much money is only making you a more responsible person. You only have so much money, so you are forced to find ways to live cheap. No one wants to live small but, it really doesn't matter how much money you are making. You can make 3,000 dollars a week and still blow it in the air. Living small and barley getting by is a lesson that will help you manage your money in a more responsible manner.

4. Working at a job you can not stand is making you eager for a better opportunity. Your brain is getting stretched and it may be pushing you harder to put more effort towards finding the job you love. We all have an idea of what we would really like to be doing for work. Although some jobs may seem far fetched, you still have a chance to put yourself to the test to find the job that is right for you. Working at a job you hate will give you more push to find a job you love.

5. You have faced a job you hate and it can not get any worse. You have figured out what you can not stand and how much you can take. The job you have, has been an experience and a story to tell. If you are not sure what you want to do with your future. It has helped you to figure out what kind of job you really need.

If you are dreading the job you are working at, understand that our attitude has a lot to do with our motivation in giving our selves a better opportunity for a better life. So what if you are working at a job like McDonalds, you are working and you have a job. Try to be positive and make the best out of what you have. This is not it and your life is not over. The point is that, hating a job may be bring you down to the feeling of defeat and depression. If you can utilize the situation you are in into a positive outlook. You will be giving yourself more motivation and a better spirit which will help you get a job you love.

This economy is rough but it is getting better. Listening to negative facts and feeling stuck is not getting you anywhere. Start applying for jobs online and aim higher. You may be surprised to see the opportunities out there that you are missing.
