You need to learn this magic formula about Frustration:

Frustration = (Expectations - Reality) * EGO

It simply implies that the bigger the difference you see in Reality vs. what you expect, the more Frustrated you will get, and your EGO only makes it worse.

It also shows: The fastest and easiest way to avoid frustration is to lower your expectations to what Reality is! Or simply become EGO-Less (EGO of 0). Because it is hard to be frustrated about something when you don't truly care, because you are centered. This is the hardest thing to truly change.

My first programming position was UNPAID. My Second one was just $5/hr (In America, and since that was more than Minimum wage. I was happy. My expectations were pretty low back then).

But you have to start somewhere. Make a plan, get the experience, and be the employee they want to keep... Or find another company after you have enough skills to move on for much better pay.

Good luck.

PS: A Corollary to is that Frustration means you are on the verge of learning something.
(Typically it is a Reality Adjustment!)
