Employment standards and what should you do if you hate your job?

Vote on what you think is the best choice to make if you hate your job and answer questions on the current state of work in the 21st century.
If you were in a position at work that made you frequently unhappy or were to find a job and come to the sobering realization that you hate it - what do you think is the best course of action to take?
Remain in the job and try to tolerate it for as long as you can.
Remain in the job, but understand that you can leave whenever you feel like it.
Try and negotiate a department transfer with your employer so you could remain in the company, but have a new role and see how that goes.
Work there, but avidly look for a new job at the same time and then leave when you find one so you don't have to be unemployed.
Leave immediately, as it's not worth the stress and unhappiness or the potential damage on your physical or mental health.
What are good reasons to leave a job? Pick as many as you like.
Workplace bullying
Abrasive, controlling or tyrannous bosses.
You hate your boss.
Unnecessary or restrictive rules and regulations that you have to follow.
You feel that it vandalises your dignity.
You have too many or too few hours.
Low pay
You feel incompetent or you struggle with the job.
You don't think that the job is a good fit for you.
It makes your home life unhappy as well as your work life.
You don't like the schedule and you're always working times that you don't want to work.
You hate your colleagues.
You feel generally unfulfilled and feel that you are better than the position you are in.
You feel you are under too much stress.
All of the above.
If you were to start a new job and after a week realise that you hated it and were unlikely to enjoy it - how long should you stick around before you leave?
As soon as possible, as it's not worth the stress and there are more enjoyable jobs out there.

Do you have any experiences of working a job that you hated that you would like to share (infomation will remain private and I will not share it with others) or do you have anything else that you would like to say or add. This question is not required.
