I'm a bit transient because of my husband's military career. I will have my 2-year review next week at my current job and that will be the longest I've worked at one place!

do you like moving a lot, I would hate that but I think it makes you a stronger person who could adjust more easily to about anything

I'd say yes and no. I dislike it because I have had some pretty amazing jobs and made great friends over the years that I was sad to leave, but it's also nice to get to see new places and new things. Plus you're never really anywhere long enough to get bored of your situation. Right about the time that you start to get "an itch", you are preparing to move again.

6.5 years at my current job. I have been a nurse for 30 years. I get bored easily and have to move on. So much so that I was a travel nurse for 8 years working somewhere new every 13 weeks.

DH has been at the same job at the same location 41 years. Unbeilevable.

19 years this June. Working for myself.

11 years before that, my first job in the business. So, I have clients who I've been doing their hair for the last 30 years!

28 years as of this May. Ouch. I'm the oldest guy working there. I'm even three years older than the owner.
