I've never tried a finance roll, is that like a baguette? Or more of a brioche?

Though I have had about six finance roles in sixteen years. Some have come with significant hour requirements, and some have been pretty close to 40 hours. It really does depend on the time of year (audit, budget, physical inventory, year-end, month-end). My current role can be anywhere between 40-50 hours, it's not too bad. Granted I could probably work almost 60 and get everything under the sun covered. But I don't want to put those kind of hours in.

The unfortunate part is we don't get coddled with overtime pay like some of these other Mary's do.

Again, this is just delaying the inevitable. But buys us employees some more time to get out.

Then go home and shove some food down my throat and get right back on the network until I get kicked off around 12:30. The only difference is the weekends I tend to stay home. But there have been times where with many of our large files, where I've just broken down and come in. Now one perk I do have, is that during off-hours, any employee that comes in has to come in through the main lobby entrance. If any of you have been here, we have 5 massive 5 - 6 story buildings in the complex. So the lobby is a mile away from my desk. Years back, I got special security clearance to where I can come in any entrance any time, anywhere in the complex. So essentially I can park in the garage like normal and come in normally.

I worked Thanksgiving (I actually have to come in that morning...), worked Christmas, etc, etc...

Seriously man, reads like you need a vacation from this job

What is the benefit of you working yourself to the bone for a company going under? Are you getting extra pay to be putting in this many hours? Is there some other fringe benefit of you busting your ass or will this put you inline for another position with another company?

If I am hourly and I am banking extra OT...then all for working all the time, if financial its worth it.

If i am payed over 200k+, sure 24/7 on call might fly.

If i am salaried for 100k or less...40 and out. I aint breaking my back and wasting my life for someone elses gain.

Way too many options out there to deal with that shit.

No there isn't. but this is paying the bills right now. None of those options are calling me back. You either get the rejection right away or never hear anything back.

Yes, actively. I posted many jobs I've applied to on here before. And I'm not just keeping it in Chicago anymore. And I've even applied to roles that are a step back if it means getting off the Titanic.

Change fields. Exaggerate a bit on your resume and learn fast.

So, I know I said I was going to get out of retail, but I just applied to an FP&A role at Amazon in Seattle.

They do offer working remote. That's pretty trendy. Actually they're pretty liberal about it here too, problem is, some of the stuff I'm doing, it's just sooo much faster to work here than at home.

I wouldn't mind randomly working from home, but full-time? I'm not sure I'd like that.

I work full time from home now. Most days its ok, but on days like today where I just feel utterly wiped, I just stare at my screen or out the window. If you have ANY slack in motivation, the day can quickly go to shit.

I ban myself from going upstairs and turning on the tv until at at least 4....so at least I have SOME discipline.

That would be part of it for me. I would lack the discipline on slower days. Then it would catch up with me at the end of the week when I wondered why nothing got done. I'm distracted enough by TCG when I'm in the office.

Ive been at home for almost 2 weeks now, back to the office on Monday and I am ready.

My animals think I am home to pet them and constantly remind me. I also don't have a home office so I think that contributes to it as well....

Especially around the holidays, they kept saying "Oh go home and work..." And I keep saying NO, NO, NO!! Then they look at me with a puzzled look of "why?"

Why? My office is down in the basement... so my kids are home, the dog is home, the wife is home, all stomping around upstairs, the house is a zoo, our network firewall is slow and I'm going through my wireless.

Yea, It's peaceful here at work. And things move fast.
