    Retail For 8+ Years And Time To Move On

    I've been in retail for 8 years and it's time for a definite change. So many college graduates at my job with bachelors, masters, and PH Ds. It's not really too much of a shock ,considering the economy. The pay is low and most of them ended up working part-time. For me, I'm back...

    8 hours a day, 6 days a week,

    2 days off per month, no lunch break and no additional benefits. I think is slavery. Minimum wage; only unemployment could be worse

    Grateful to Have a Job But...

    ... it's driving me insane. It's an ok job, but it's a dead-end job. This was supposed to be a temporary job for just a couple of months. Well, I've been at this job for 3+ years! Anyway, everything happens for a reason I guess!
