BumpInTheNight: 52 years! I've been a walmart greeter since I was 16 and I can't retire because walmart.Please kill me!
Gene Masseth Jr.: 7 years as of August.Haven't had a raise in 4 years.I've applied over 100 places in the past year and gotten nothing. I want out, but I can't get out until I get something else because I can't have no income in life. So, instead, I just stick it out and slowly die inside more and more every day.Ask me if I'm bitter.
StopLurkListen: Software developer - in 20 years, only one job lasted longer than three years. I gave up caring about doctors/dentists because health insurance changed every year even when my job didn't change. Also, having to wait a year to start contributing to a 401k? Whoever wrote that rule needs to burn in Hell.
cryinoutloud: I've never had a full-time, year-round job. Never. Part of it is my career field, part where I live, and part you don't even want to know./I HAVE worked seasonal jobs for multiple years. And a lot of those I only did it because I couldn't find anything better.
