I hate my job. Don't make enough money to be gone for 50 hours a week. I'm starting not to care and it's showing. I work at bar 2 nights a week making about $200/night and I'm going to start real estate classes in the next month. Would u leave your corporate 9-5 job to pursue something else?

If I hated it and could find something else that paid the bills then yes.

If it were me, no. Mostly because of the simple fact that we can't afford me to not work.

I wouldn't quit without finding something else first. If you can do without that income, then go for it.

No I wouldn't. I wouldn't leave a confirmed job to explore my options. I'd first find another job, THEN quit the previous one.

Do you need the money? I worked for an Ebay seller throughout my teenage years. After a while, it got so bad to the point were I was crying almost every night because it was 3:00 am and I still couldn't finish the work. I was basically running his business & was not getting paid enough. I quit shortly after.



If you are miserable and can afford to quit. Quit.

I work in clinical research for pharmaceutical companies.. Stay in a cubicle staring at Excel spreadsheets all day. Data entry, meeting minutes etc
After taxes I make about $450/week
I went to college so I wouldn't have jobs that kept me broke. Lol.

You're like the billionth person who went to college for that and hate their job. A friend of mine is always complaining about her job too & she does the same thing. Except she can't find anything better so she has to settle for what she does now.

I didn't go to school for that. I was just happy to get a job with benefits but I Hate it and have been here for 2 years and I'm really interested in real estate. I just know I can do so much more with the 10 hours I spend here
