Yes and no… Some weeks (like this week!), I’m so busy that I hardly breathe, and my pay doesn’t really reflect the amount of hours I work. And yet, most parts of my job are so fun, I would almost do them without pay!!!
I think I get paid a good amount for the job that i do. I work 37.5 hours a week, I get plenty of holiday every year, and I get to leave early on a Friday so I get a nice long weekend.
The thing that makes my job not stressful is that I don’t have to bring any of it home. When I leave the office I have all my spare time to myself which I like to spend with my wife and seeing friends and family.
I wouldn’t class my job as very stressful, and I don’t think I do long hours,so I don’t think I need compensation for that.
My pay also allows me to live comfortably and afford to treat myself, so I’m definitely happy with it.
