I hit 20 years this past October. Different levels of the same job until I was selected to manage the local operations in 2014. It has changed a lot for sure. For the better though. I have a great group of folks working for me and our leadership is pretty good as well. I really can’t imagine myself working anywhere else.

Congratualations. I have been working for the National Park Service for almost 18 years, but two long shutdowns in the last 6 years are somehow making it feel longer than that.

Boss just called to make sure I'm working tomorrow and reminded me tomorrow makes 20 years.

Sheesh. Time flies.
Congratulations. I started the company I run now in 1998 and have one guy who's been with me since 2004. I hope they buy you a Rolex to show their appreciation for your commitment.

Congrats.

I hit my 10 year with my current (second) company a couple of months ago.

There was definitely a time I didn't think I'd be here 2 more weeks vs 7-8 more years...

If your boss had a heart he would've called you, congratulated you on the 20 years and said to take the day off. But no, another day to row the boat for The Man.

I did receive an email with some kind words.

ive never bought into the whole "THE MAN" narrative and possibly why ive been here 20 years. Point being, if you would have told me 20 years ago that in 20 years this is where you will be ( life, career, earnings etc ) i would have laughed hysterically, sipped my Sky Lab and kept one eye out for the next honey walking thru the door.

Its all good, ill row. id do the same for wife, kids or whomever else needed a rower. Might as well get compensated well for it. lol.

That's funny. I'm evidently more than hard on chairs so the guys bought me one of these about 5 years ago. It's uncomfortable as hell and I still haven't figured how to adjust it, but it was so freaking expensive I haven't he heart to tell them it sucks or throw it away.

Congratulations. Its interesting to see a number of long-tenured people on this thread given the transient modern workplace.

I'm just shy of 13 years at my job

I'll hit 20 years on the job in October, and celebrated 20 years married last year (going on 24 years together). Time definitely flies.

Our first "date" was actually the day after my 21st birthday -- invited her over for red beans and rice.
