Most Helpful Opinions
I'm retired, but when I was working, I always did quite a bit more than required. When I was finally promoted to the position I had wanted, I did as much as I had to do, and delegated the rest to subordinates.0
I don't have time to do extra. There's always a specific task we're working on. If those run out, we leave early.0
What Girls & Guys Said
It depends on how much I enjoy the job. For the majority of jobs I only did what was required and a little more, but for teaching I do quite a bit more than what is required.0
I'd do extra if they pay me for it. My last job I would get a full days work done in an hour or two then do whatever the rest of the day.0
I clean fossils, so sometimes it’s easy peasy and other times it’s super slow and tedious0
I work more than the basics. I want them to see my value and help my team success.0

When I was in the military I went above and beyond the required standards, both because I gave a damn and because the military frowns on those who just skate by.
When I become a police officer I will give it my all as well because it is my dream job.
When I was a Corrections Officer there was not really an opportunity to go above and beyond in my roll. The rules and regulations are so strict and tight as a CO that there is neither much room for deviation nor a chance to really excel. Advancement is all about avoiding write-ups and getting to know your bosses and them liking you.
The little shitty civilian jobs I've worked since the military I only do what is required. No need to waste more energy than necessary at a job I could care less about when that energy can be saved for after work to progress my true goals. After the military I promised myself to never let a job interfere with my goals in life. After all, why give my all to a job that can replace me within a few days?
