Lots of jobs pay you to do nothing. Haven’t you ever heard of CEO’s?
@I Are Lebo, or government jobs, like dmv worker!
@Poisonwolf, those don't pay you to do nothing. Those pay you to have your soul slowly rotted away to the point where you hate everyone and want nothing more than to ruin their day.
@masonharte, I'm a gov worker who rebuilds aircraft but I can confirm my soul has been slowly rotting away even though I do bust my ass.
@I Are Lebo, as much as I hate most CEOs, they’re certainly not doing nothing. People who get that high up in a company are the type of people who like to spend all their time working. Like it’s not uncommon for a CEO to work 7 days a week, anywhere from 10-16 hours a day. People like this are just built different. They don’t need breaks and they don’t want them.
That being said this obviously doesn’t apply to all CEOs, I just think people underestimate how much work is required to make it that high let alone how much work is required to stay that high
@Duncan5769, exactly, CEO's may not do traditional work, a lot of it is meetings and networking, to drive the company in the direction of their mission statement.
People just assume meetings at that level mean chatting with work colleagues, but they are making important decisions. I think it just annoys people how much they get paid for seemingly doing no "real work" compared with those at the lower levels of the company.
@Albatraous, yes it’s certainly a different type of work. If you like leading it probably is a pretty good job. I hate leading, I’m a basic ass assistant manager and I hate it
