Please share. I'd want to try and transfer since I'm working more than ever for nearly the same pay as when I started four years ago. The more people leave the more work gets shifted the way of those of us who're still here. God forbid they hire somebody to help us. Why would they when they're getting the same amount of work while paying fewer people to do it? So please, tell me, where are the easy jobs?

Sales jobs if you lucked into a good territory. And have the type of personality where you only work the minimum you can get away with. Like you were a child.
The description of inside sales is spot on. As little as I had to do, my manager did even less. They rarely even showed up. Riding the gravey train!
It was easy for me because I got the fat one on our team to clean up my crm and do my presentations.
I worked in marketing. It was not difficult because expectations were low. I was able to lap my colleagues in volume and quality while still having a lot of downtime. Sure there were crazy periods where I was juggling multiple projects and deadlines. But it was smooth sailing for the most part. Meanwhile I had burned out colleagues doing the same job as me but needing 50 hours per week just to keep up. C and D players were the norm during my time there.
@1gni+1eWwUnoT. Good for them. I know a couple of people who work there. It was always my philosophy that if you made your number and the company was good with it, you may as well take advantage of it!
There are only so many summer CRM clean ups that you can do...and since mass sampling went away, that freed up tons of time.
Inside Sales in Northern Kentucky, truly you can show up late, make a few phone calls or emails, walk around the outside of building for a half hour several times a day, take a couple hours for lunch, then make a couple more calls. There are people that have been here for years because its so easy. You basically have the summer and the month of December off. Working from home somedays requires no work at all. People literally nap or watch movies at their desks hours at a time. Sorry you have to work so hard.
Why haven’t you followed them out the door? Companies are throwing money around trying to hire people. Nothing will ever get better at Cengage.
