How long have you been consistently employed for?

Another words, how long have you had a job, whether it be the job you have right now or not. I've had a job since August 30th, 2011, so in a little over two months, I will be employed for four straight years (with ONE week of vacation from work, mind you.) However, I have had six jobs in this span (it's a long story) but either way, that's as it is. If you could, besides voting, state how many jobs you've had in your stretch and how long it's been.

What about you all here on GAG?

  • I've had two jobs consecutively for the past 15 months. Before that I only worked summer jobs while I attended school. I'm still in college, but summer jobs just aren't enough at my age. I also recently enlisted in the national guard for the next 6 years.

  • E. I would have been employed for longer but I had too many issues to deal with. Besides, long-term employment is pretty much a thing of the past now. Switching jobs is where it's at.

    • You're right about how hard it is to keep a long-term job. I feel you on that one. It's the same here in the United States.

    • Yeah.. I don't necessarily mind it as I believe life is too short to be working for the same boss until you die or retire. What I do mind is how discard-able workers have become and the push companies make to make lay-offs even easier to do.

      Our national post company employed a particularly nasty tactic where they fired their delivery men, then offered to rehire them under much worse terms. It's been criticized a lot in our media and finally the company has promised to offer their delivery guys steady jobs again. At least sometimes the common man can win against the corporate behemoth. :)

  • I usually quit a job shy if two years still working on my degree it's a job not a career even though I got paid more than one would with a degree
