How long have you been in your current job?


#1

Me: One year and six (6) days.

How long was your longest stint somewhere?

Me: Two (2) years.

Am reviewing CVs at the moment and some people have been in their job for like eight (8) years. Is this impressive or unimaginative? I don’t really care either way tbh.

Chat away.


#2

3 years 2 months

This is my longest stint.

Someone just left my work who had been here for about 35 years.
What the actual.


#3

Current role: 2 years 6 months (give or take a few days), although 4 years and 5 days with the firm.

Longest stint: 8 years 1 month. Man, should have gotten out of that a LOT sooner. Sunk into a degree of comfort even though the role was totally dead-end. Felt like a huge risk trying to get off somewhere else.


#4

Too long baby…

Eleven months.


#5

1 week and 5 days. Still being shown the ropes.


#6

oh yeah i just remembered in one of my old jobs there were HUGE financial incentives to staying a lifetime, so a bunch of people had been there like 20 - 30 years. fucking insane, but they must have been RAKING it in.


#7

Just over 6 months currently.
Longest is 5 1/2 years, just kind of happened.


#8

Longest in one role was 4 years, longest in one company was 6 years.

I’ve been in my current role for 10 months, and current company for 1.5 years.


#9

Nearly 6 years I guess.

But in this organisation for nearly 14.

Yeesh.


#10

This is my 10th year at this school. Best school food I’ve ever found; I’ll be here til they take me out in a box.

#12

Three and a half years.

I was at my last place for nine years, but that was across four different teams/offices, so it never really felt like I was treading water.


#13

2.5 years contracting for the same company. Keep thinking I’d like to look at other jobs that are a bit more stable but I’m a bit short on transferable skills (I can type fast and accurately, organise my time and do research, anyone got any jobs?).


#14

Thirteen years. By far the longest I’ve ever worked anywhere (next highest was 4). Still got another seven before I can realistically jack it in.


#15

A little over three years now.

Longest was four years, at the old place. It felt longer.

I don’t have any plans to move on, but who knows what could change in the future. There are a fair few people who have been here for decades.


#16

Three years… just over two months.

Was somewhere for just over five years which is my longest.


#17

Didn’t know you used to work as a gardener


#18

since about quarter past nine LOL


#19

I’ve had plenty of joe-jobs; nothing I’d call a career. Let me put it this way: I have an extensive collection of nametags and hairnets.


#20

In January I will start my fifth job in 9 years. Longest ever stint is about 4 years, but I think I’ll be in the next job for a while. I’ve changed jobs a lot for progression to get to where I’m about to be, so I won’t need to move jobs anymore which is good.
