    Don't you directly deal with the general public? Fuuuuck that! There isn't enough pension in the world to cover that kind of torture for ~20 years.

    So, I did get out for a woods ride before dark. Life is good!

    So my boss (owner of the company) and his son have been experimenting with unlimited vacation time. It seems to be working very well for them.

    Can't tell if this is tongue in cheek or...

    Re: Anyone work for an "Unlimited" vacation time company??

    When I was in college I worked at a part time job where the hours were flexible. We were committed to a predetermined part-time schedule (two evenings a week with a weekend rotation), but could work extra hours anytime we wanted as long as it was at least three hours.

    When you combine the work arrangement with my class schedule, I had a tremendous amount of flexibility.

    To this day that remains the most productive yet least stressful period of my life. I worked between 35 and 40 hours a week while handling a full-time college workload. Being able to shift tasks as needed over such a wide time frame made things MUCH easier.

    Bit tongue in cheek, you'd think they had unlimited time off.

    Given the self imposed bottleneck due to the hierarchy of the company, the client suffers, therefore our revenue, therefore our bonuses. Luckily, those with unlimited time off do not have their bonus structure linked to the revenue of the company. Good work if you can get it...

    If you have a genuine natural drive to help people it honestly isn't so bad. There's assholes everywhere and we all deal with them is the way I see it. Normally people want us there, unlike the police, so people on average are generally pretty nice to us. I run into more assholes in general life in relation to my job than people I actually deal with at work.
