You May Get

The 110% Employee

You are internally motivated and ambitious. You care about your job and like what you do. In life, you gravitate towards activities that you are passionate about. You are a strong-willed person with good intentions. If there is not enough work to do, you will create something to do. Your boss loves you, and your co-workers are often skeptical about why you like your job so much. They are sometimes jealous of your positive attitude and work ethic. 9 to 5 has nothing to do with your schedule. You work until the work is done! Your career is taking your place. Keep up this pace, and you will be noticed and promoted for your efforts.

Supportive Employee

You give a lot of yourself to the job. You work really hard from 9 to 5 or whatever your hours are, but your employer should know better than to ask you to take on an extra task or to stay an extra hour without discussing compensation first. You are consistent, rarely call out and get the job done! You have been burned in your profession before, and you are always skeptical of the management. You have a strong ethical code and care about your job performance, but you don't expect it to go anywhere, and you are surprised when you are recognized for your work. There is a leader inside of you that wants to do more, and sometimes you are inspired to do so. If you push yourself to add about 25% more effort to your job, you could be running the place yourself!

Along for the Ride

You are pretty happy with your current job. It's not an easy profession, but you don't stress about it. You watch as your fellow employees buzz around you with so much to do. You take it all in stride because you know the secret. You just don't work that hard! You are well-liked for the most part because you have an easy-going personality. You need to be nice because that's the trick to get other co-workers to help pick up your slack. You don't hide at work; well, you don't hide the good stuff that you do. You make sure you do one good thing every so often and make sure everybody knows about it. You are intelligent because it takes some skill to make sure your boss sees you at the right time. 9 to 5 is for those people that don't know how to do the minimum that needs to get done so that you stay off the boss's radar screen.

The Anchor

You work very hard and are never appreciated for it. You come in every day when you are supposed to and leave exactly on time. You can't be bothered with the overtime that is offered because this job is so miserable that you would rather let your boss keep the extra cash. You can't understand why your co-workers can't get the job done in the time allotted anyway. There must be something wrong with them. You certainly are not going to be doing extra work because they can't keep up. It's not that you don't want to be a team player; it's just that you are too smart to let others take advantage of you. You like to keep a strong, consistent routine, and you are not interested in changing it. You do not trust your boss. You are pretty sure your boss is out to get you and watching your every move, just waiting for you to make a mistake, but they can keep watching because you don't make mistakes. You hear that you are not that popular at work, but you don't care about it. It's not like you actually want to spend time with these people anyway.
