    Back in the old days it was pretty common for people to work at the same company for 20, 35, 50 odd...years before retiring, but nowadays it seems like people change jobs more often.

    What's your longest stint with the same company?

    I bounced around from job to job in my teens and even had multiple jobs at the same time, but when I was 21 I started a job that I stayed at for 20 years before I quit. I think I stayed there so long because they taught me a lot and then let me run a truck like it was my own business with little interference.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with jumping from job to job either. A lot of time employers will pay you more because they don't have to train you and they don't see you as the kid they hired right out of high school/college.

    Started when i was like 19-20 and they always take real good care of me and i make them lots of money so it works well for both of us. Winter was slow and they actually paid me for work i wasn't even doing just so my checks didnt suck during the colder months
