    What's the longest period that you've worked for a company? Why did you leave?

      I worked for a church for 12 years. I got separated from a horrific marriage and I got fired and he got promoted!!! I was told they were making an example of me. I haven't regularly attended any church since. And that was over 20 years ago.

        I'm so sorry MamaDuke. I left man-made places of worship for a very similar reason. You'll find me in the trees with sunlight filtering through the tree canopy instead.

            I am doing now, and don't plan on stopping. My dad started investing in real estate in 1992. Got out of the rental house business and into storage in 1996. All this was started while he still worked full time so it was all nights and weekends. Which I was along pretty much all the time. So I got started working this job when I was 11 years old. I did move out of town for college for 5 years, but would still work the summers, breaks, and some weekends as needed. I moved back in 2004, and within a few years my parents pretty much completely retired.

            So at 40 years old I have pretty much done this my entire life.

                        I was at a major university for 14 years. If I told you why I left you wouldn't even believe me, or you'd think I was crazy. Let's just say the department was shut down, I was so traumatized I didn't work for a few years and suffered from PTSD and anxiety. I would have a panic attack even clicking on the Indeed app. After a few years of intensive therapy I was able to look for work and fell into the storage business. I love it and am happier than I have been in years. I have been at my current job for about 2 years.

                            Home healthcare is a hard job! Kudos to you.

                              Thank you! It's definitely a skill. I got my CNA license when I was 17 and started in a nursing home in the Alzheimer unit, so it's been off and on for 20 years!
