Not all agricultural jobs are created equal. If you have a job in this field you don’t like or is not a good fit for you, you don’t have to stay in your current position. You have plenty of opportunities to find new work in the agricultural industry that will be better suited to your skills and you will prefer to your current work.
Sometimes, it can be difficult to make the decision to move on. After all, you probably know the ropes where you work now and may not be eager to have to start all over again with a new employer. Still, there are a few signs you should not ignore that suggest it is time to move on. Some of the signs suggesting you need a new job include the following:
- Your employer doesn’t take safety seriously. If your employer is not prioritizing your safety and the safety of your co-workers, start looking for another job immediately. Agricultural workers often do demanding physical labor that creates a risk of heat-stroke, repetitive stress injuries, or injuries involving machinery or equipment. You must be confident your employer cares about avoiding workplace accidents and keeping you safe. You cannot afford to risk your health or your life for your job.
- You are feeling stressed about going to work, and your stress is affecting you outside of working hours. If your employer’s demands or your working conditions are causing you to feel so much stress you dread going to work and cannot enjoy your off time, consider looking for another job. Workplace stress can impact your overall health and make you more prone to serious conditions like depression or heart problems.
- Your time is not being respected by your current employer. Your employer should pay you for all your time worked and should respect your time when it comes to demanding overtime work. If you aren’t respected or appropriately compensated for the work you do, it is time to find a new job.
