Editor's Note: Congratulations to Sam, Therese, and James for winning this week's contest!

For people who work a 40-hour workweek, almost a quarter of their lives are spent working. Many of people end up working more than 40 hours a week. Regardless of how many hours a week you work, most people have one thing that they absolutely love about their job.

What do you love most about your job? The hours? The benefits? The people? What about your job do you hate?

Tell us what you like most about your job and we'll enter you in a drawing to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card!

I love that I'm part of a community that I've always wanted to be a part of, contributing to something bigger than myself. My job is only a tiny little part of the whole, but I know that my work is going towards something greater. I find the whole field exciting! I'm only at the start of my career and I can't wait to progress further and take on greater responsibility and influence in the industry.

My husband and I own our own business. The part I like best is getting up in the morning and being excited about what I am doing for the day.

My job is sort of part-time educational consulting. I tutor adult, ESL, graduate, undergraduate, and high school-level English composition, GRE-, SAT-, GED-prep, and study skills, as well as freelance proofreading and editing. I love it because this flexible work gives me a chance to meet one-on-one with people working toward their goals, and also because my job gives me a window into other's worldviews.

In my small corporate department of 9 people, the boss hires as much for compatibility as skill set. Unlike several jobs I've had, we all get along great; there is no gossiping, back-biting or backstabbing. Going to work every day is a joy now!

I love my job because I get paid to take care of dogs and cats, which I love. I love the people I work with and have the oppurtunity to learn new things daily. Some parts of the day are the same, but when I walk in the door, I never know what I'm going to walk into.
