What makes a job great?

I've worked at a few jobs that I've really hated -not because they were particularly difficult, but because they were deadly boring. I've also have jobs I've enjoyed immensely - but only in part. I've had jobs where the people were great but the work dull or unpleasant , and vice versa, I've never ever had a job where every aspect was something I totally loved. Does anyone have, or has had, a job that they really relish in every way - something that they can't wait to get to in the morning and never want to end at night? We all like doing different things but even so, do such jobs really exist for some people or are they figments of imagination or hope - the one day, or grass is greener type syndromes? What makes a job great?

I just need a Job.I was doing home Corporate catering for awhile before the recession hit and lots of companies halved their budget,so ended up with orders drying up.
So I need to find a new Focus...Just find it hard motivating myself at the moment.


....the type of job that makes you get up and ready to go in the morning....and exciting with getting and working there....surrounded by liked minded people...all motivated to do their best....unfortunately am yet to work with such an organisation have come pretty close though which is better than the alternative.......


My last paid work was pretty good. The people were fun, the work was stimulating & it was a charity so had some challenges. It wasn't paid overly well but I wasn't worried about that much.


A great boss makes the biggest difference


Being appreciated certainly helps a lot no matter what kind of work you do.


doing what you enjoy with great people around you, getting paid a reasonable amount and a good career path


SMILE .. IT ... confuses an approaching frown. & You are not fully dressed until you wear a smile. & If you’re not using your smile, you’re like a man with a million dollars in the bank and no checkbook.


''Love for the job/work'' is also one of the things that makes job great!


Yes, we all know the cliche "Find a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” (Confucius) However, what I was asking is "has anyone actually found that job and what especially made you love it?"


What makes a job great? - is the bonus of getting paid to do it. Find a job where this happens as you should be happy, if you're not then find or do something that does.
