What is the longest you or DH has held a job with the same company?

I have been at the Vet;s office I work for for 11 years and 4 months. This seems like a really long time. Is it?

  • My father had the same job for 28 years. My husband has been with his company for 7 years now. 11+ years is a long time though.

  • My husband has worked for Southwest Airlines for 10 years, 2 months.
    My longest was 4 1/2 years (the cafeteria at my college). I then worked 8 months at Wal-mart before quitting to become a SAHM. Those are really the only jobs I've had.
    My dad worked for Amtrak for like 25 years before retiring (and with freight railroads before that for a total of 35 years working for the railroad).

  • well, we're only 23. I've never held a job for more than 6 months, but only worked in retail and with temp agencies before getting pregnant and becoming a SAHM. My husband has been at his job for about 3 and a half years....6 months as a temp, then got hired on...then in August they sold the building to a different company, but most of the employees just got hired on to the new company, and were told to still use their original start date. *shrugs*

  • DH has been with the same company for 8.5 years. He is trying for a new job within the company. Please send him good vibes. He really needs to switch positions.
