I work full-time, make decent money and get pretty good vacation time. The only problem is, I work 4 days on, 2 days off. I get only 1 weekend off every 6 weeks, I work evenings from 1pm-10pm so I miss a lot of family functions, church gatherings, birthday parties. Next year my daughter starts school and will have school programs, sports, activities etc.
Is it worth the decent money (which I've needed to carry us through when my husband is out of work) to miss so much family stuff? I don't make extra $ to play with, but it pays the bills.
Or should I look for something in this economy where I can work a 9-5 Monday through Friday. And how do you find those jobs?
I work in emergency services now.
