No, I wouldn't. Because I left it for a reason. And that's what you should always keep in mind. And I was lucky, last week, an old colleague of my previous job sat across me on the train, and we started chatting. And besides being a friendly and nice conversation, he also confirmed every single reason for which I had left my previous job.

No way, my last job was roofing, and I'm terrified of heights, but that isn't why I wouldn't do it again. 

I've lived a life working laborious jobs, from foundations to roofs, prior to that I worked factory jobs, and prior to that I was a military man. 

One thing that all of these jobs had in common for me, was the lack to mental capacity required to perform in these occupations. It wasn't that I really disliked working jobs that required little aptitude, it was the fact that I had to work with hoards of people who harbored little aptitude. 

I enjoyed solving problems, making my job more efficient, and faster. I would put tons of thought into how I performed tasks, only to have some half wit tell me to do it a harder, more inefficient way, because he lacked the insight to understand what I was doing. Most of these jobs weren't paid hourly either, so it was even more of a conundrum that time management wasn't a factor. 

In the end my body started suffering, and I felt it was time to work with my brain. I haven't found amazing success at it, but at least I am not a slave to profession I can't stand anymore.

Honestly Yes!! I would love to go back to my old job. My earlier boss was a very nice person. He treated me well.

But my immediate manger was a waste, he was so conscious about himself and was always worried about his reputation. I was not able to mingle with him well. Ours was a small company. So dealing with him everyday was very troublesome for me.

I would love to go their for the amazing salary I received, plus  I would also like to meet my boss and colleagues.

I have to admit sometimes I regret my decision of leaving the job. I would love to go back of course but without that manager sitting on my head.

No, I hated my old job. The leaders were very toxic and always tried to belittle the workers to keep them there by making them feel no other place would want them. It was very sad and I did stay there far to long.

No I wouldn't. you should always go forward and there was a reason why you left in the first place.

Why go back to something you left. That would be like taking one step forward and 3 steps back. The grass isn't always greener but one should never go back.
