I started here in December of 1995, so a little over 16yrs now..

vote-for7vote-against

The same job for 22 years. The same company for 10 years.

vote-for9vote-against

Four years next month and still loving it!

vote-for6vote-against

Will be 16 years in July at my current company/job.

vote-for6vote-against

Going on 6... it's a love/hate relationship depending on the day and/or the weather.

vote-for6vote-against

Going on 5 years here. And still love it!

vote-for7vote-against

right around 7 months, and I hate it. Unfortunately the bills have got to get paid somehow.

I started in December 08, but I say 4 years. Technically it is the 4th year, but are you ever really asked what month you started? :)

vote-for6vote-against

@jordan711: Yes, the month you started is important when determining eligibility for severance, pension vesting, vacation weeks (etc).

vote-for8vote-against

Nearly twenty years in this position, with thirteen years for the same employer prior to that. Egads! That's 33 years! (I started here when I was only 6.)

This is my 28th year working for the same boss (me) as a contract physician, but I've also been working in the same 2 places all those years.

No plan to change now.

vote-for5vote-against

20 years and still counting...

vote-for5vote-against

Been here a little better than a year and will stay until the contract runs out or something else comes along.

It's fun, I mostly work for myself, and it pays pretty good.

vote-for5vote-against

@cengland0: You're right :) I had to wait 3 years to-date to get fully vested in my 401k. I guess I was going for a semi-humorous response.

Sitting at the ballpark talking with the guy behind me, he is getting "it's my 4th year".

vote-for4vote-against

It will be 6 years in June.

I have worked here for 27.5 years, and for a different department with the same employer as a temp two years before that. I didn't like my first assignment, but I love my current one. I am privileged to be able to help people who have less than I do every day, to support people who have dedicated their lives to community service, to make the world a better place. I have a big office with big windows and the respect of my peers and the members of the public with whom I work. I earn enough to pay for my small house and my small car and still dine out too often and travel to tropical locales once a year. It is a very good life. And I get to retire in 2.5 years with a full pension. Yippee! I plan to volunteer with some of the community services agencies I work with once I retire, so I won't be giving up the mission, just the alarm clock.

vote-for5vote-against

Retired with a pension in 2000 after 21.5 years to raise my kids. This year it is a tie between educator and mother.

vote-for6vote-against

I work at a college, where I started part-time in 1986. I've worked for a total of four different departments, the longest since 1987, where I've been full-time since 1990 (over 21 years full-time). Mostly IT, some teaching.

I mostly love it (I tell people I'm happy to get paid to do my hobby), though there are bad days.

vote-for5vote-against

Just passed the 1 year mark last week. I can't complain, it's a little rough joining a huge company with so many standards documents and government regulations straight out of college, but when I get to sit down and actually do some engineering it's fun. Also the pay and benefits are pretty good. I'll probably stick around for at least 5 years so my pension is vested. Some people here have been here since they graduated 30 years ago, but I don't think I can stand the way the regulations oppress creativity and efficiency for that long.

vote-for5vote-against

Opened my business 2 years and 9 months ago. Good things for 2012! Having a boss is dumb :)

vote-for7vote-against

The original company, where I had worked for eight years, sold me and all of their assets to another company and I have been there for ten years (slaves can't quit or be fired - they have to be sold).

vote-for4vote-against

@apocello42: That's what's making me itch for retirement. We are HUD funded and there was a staff rollover a few years back at the regional office and they replaced all the rational people with whackjobs and beancounters. It's getting pretty hard to get past the restrictions to actually do any good any more.

vote-for4vote-against

4 years. I'd love to retire here, but that's a long time and its not nearly as easy to be to stick with a company for life.

vote-for4vote-against

Almost 14 years with the company. Just over 10 years in this current job. Wow it doesn't seem like that long. I do enjoy it most of the time.

vote-for3vote-against

1.42 years. I like my job, overall, but I wish that it felt more stable. One month, I am the best employee that they have. The next month, I have to worry about being fired. It's a bit of a roller coaster, but I'm thankful to have it.

vote-for3vote-against

This time or all together? I just passed my 10-year mark for this go-around. (Finally get the diamond ring!) If you don't count the 4-ish months I worked somewhere else, it would be 14 years this summer.

ETA: My dad has 40 1/2 years in where he works. Technically he could have gone the "80 and out" route the year my youngest brother graduated from HS, but even nearly a decade later, Dad still has too many years left before he's eligible for Medicare to make retirement feasible.

vote-for6vote-against

Since May 9th of last year. :)

vote-for4vote-against

will be 14 yrs this coming may 29th. loved it for the most part, lately just gettin itchy for a change.

now if i can just find something where i can start w/ similar pay/benefits..
(it's a crappy retail job, but i'm topped out in pay, and i am up to 4 weeks vacation)

vote-for3vote-against

Almost 10 years. First job out of college. It's been a good company to work for and with the automotive market beings so turbulent, I haven't been interested in looking elsewhere.

vote-for4vote-against

2 years... seems like a lot longer though, cause its dragging

vote-for4vote-against

12 years with the company and 4 years in current position.

vote-for3vote-against

I've worked for a major luxury car company as a Parts Advisor for 10 years.

I like my job. They pay me very well for a job that is easy because I have so much experience at it but if they stopped paying me, I'd stop showing up.......

vote-for4vote-against

Started June 2006, so 5 years 8 months. You'd have to ask me how I like my job each day. Some days I love it, some days I hate it.

We recently merged, so I've been with this new company for 1 month 22 days. But, I did get to keep my seniority, so for all intensive purposes, I've been with this new company for 5 years 8 months.

vote-for4vote-against

Almost 4 years so far, and I generally enjoy it. I got incredibly lucky. It's my first job out of college, and everything I've heard from coworkers tells me that the corporate culture here is much nicer than most other places I could work. I'm planning on staying as long as it pays the bills.

@bogie21: "For all intents and purposes", right? I hear you with the part where it depends on the day. I love every second of some days, and sometimes it just makes me hate my life, haha.

vote-for3vote-against

10 long long loooong years. Getting looonger every year....

vote-for3vote-against

Self-employed part time in various aspects of one job for 35 years. Wouldn't say I love it, but can't think of anything I'd rather do.

vote-for3vote-against

At my current part time job, since the end of October 2011. At another weekend job, since January 2012. I make some money to use as a broke college kid! I love it.

vote-for3vote-against

13 Years at the current job. My daughter works at the same place, which can occasionally be a bit weird.

vote-for5vote-against

2 years so far in the Marines, 2 years to go then off to the Med field

vote-for1vote-against

On year 30 in the family business. I mostly enjoy it, but some days...sigh.

vote-for1vote-against

11 years, and I kind of wish I didn't have such a great job. We would move to be closer to family if I didn't have a dream job here.
