This week we're showing the results of our poll Grade Your Job: Help Desk.

Here are the other job poll results we've covered so far:

From the discussion after the poll on Help Desk, we learned that some of the good points about the Help Desk position are:

  • You get to hear gratitude from thankful users.
  • It has a fast, interesting pace.
  • The large variety of questions keep one from getting bored.

Some of the drawbacks include:

  • There is a great deal of interference by management (some treat you like a piece of furniture).
  • You get the dirty jobs nobody else wants.
  • You're expected to know everything about everything and have to master more and more.

Here are the results:

How would you rate the overall stress of your job?

How would you rate your compensation?

How easy is it to find a job in your field?

How would you rate your overall satisfaction with your job?
