Don't want to do it anymore...

My job.

I am so tired of this place. I've been here for almost 7 years and I've overstayed my welcome. I need to get out of here. I have been lied to and screwed over so many times to count. I've been promised jobs that were "forgotten" about or "it was just talk we don't have the budget nor need for that position" at least three times. Then I have been screwed over when it comes to my working hours, vacation time and pay. On top of that I work with the most talentless, rude, sexist, mean, vindictive, uneducated group of people that you can even imagine. Granted not all of them are this way but a good portion who I interact with daily.

My perfermance reviews are stellar and fair yet I have not had a change in title, promotion nor raise in years. The "raise" that they dole out don't cover the cost of living raise nor is it enough to cover the rise in the cost of our insurance. To say it is a pittance is an understatement.

I have been looking for a new position for two years and I have been on two interviews. I have my resume on so many job sites both national and local. I have my info on networking sites at my two schools and still nothing. I have told people in my classes and friends yet still nothing. I've gone to networking events and still nothing.

I am really at the breaking point at this job. I am so frustrated and de-motivated that I just want to quit. But then I can't afford health care nor the daily expenses of just living. I am so upset and bummed...I have no idea what else I can do to get out of here, I just don't know.

Sheesh, I feel your pain. My last performance review, described as "excellent" by my supervisor, garnered me a raise smaller than inflation. Whatever.

I'm curious about what you do, but perhaps you don't want to be too specific. Or perhaps you said it a thousand times on your blog and I just haven't seen it b/c I admit I haven't been thru the archives...

I know businesses lack any sense of compassion and humanist tendencies.

I work in client services so a mix of customer service and account management.
