I worked at two jobs twice.
First I worked at Denny's. Quit for something better, but when I moved out I was still a minor, and my parents took my car until I turned 18. Started as a hostess, came back as a server. Quit because they treated everyone like shit, never trained me, but expected me to maintain the entire restuarant on my own. Seriously, they expected me to serve 3 rooms of people on my own. The other servers called in, and the manager couldn't be bothered.
Second one I worked for Afterthoughts. Worked there at 16, left because of the above issue--the car thing. They called when I turned 18 and asked if I could come back as management. I did. Quit because they promised me the assistant manager position because they were going to fire the current assistant manager. After a year, they still hadn't worked up the guts to fire her. Since the assistant Assistant manager (or key closer) pay sucked, and the hours sucked I left.

I have also worked at a job twice. For F-ly's and a clothing company. The first time for F-ly's was because I was under 18 and really wanted a serving job. Left for a better job after giving 2 weeks notice (with less pay, but it's a better job!) and went back a little over a year later to supplement my income, left again after giving 2 weeks notice to go to college. I used to close on Sunday nights and had Monday off from both jobs. Was a pretty nice schedule. The clothing company was because I did seasonal work both times, and it has a fantastic discount for the clothes, so why not? Tried to go back a 3rd time, didn't work so well. I think they were mad because I took the week after christmas off. I really needed that week off that year, but oh well.

I did two rounds at Kinko's.
I assure you, that will be all. :o

I just returned to the wine store this week after quitting six months ago.
I got a better deal this time around. Once I left, it became very clear exactly how much they needed me. I always liked the job itself, I just wasn't fond of my hours before.
There are a lot of reasons why someone may need or want to leave a job for a while, even if its a job they liked. And then once circumstances change, they're more than happy to return.

I worked at my last job for a total of 2 times.
I was working there for a year, the pay was good, and I had weekends off. Then I moved out of state, so I had to get a different job. I stayed for a month at that job, and got laid-off. So I moved back to town, and applied at the place, I had before. I was there for a year, and was getting treated poorly, so I quit. And now I am working for my buddy, in his crappy store.

I may apply to work at Target again for the holidays, I still haven't decided yet. I actually kinda miss the place, as horrible as it was. :o Really I just want to hang with my old coworkers again and do physical work, rather than the mind numbing office shit.

...Really I just want to hang with my old coworkers again and do physical work, rather than the mind numbing office shit.
I hate to say it but I've gone back not once, not twice, but three times.
The first time I quit (after giving 2 wks notice) because I found a better paying job at a doctor's office. I loved my coworkers at the store, liked my manager and even enjoyed the work but the pay sucked royaly! ($5.15/hr)
Once I started at the doctor's office, all I did was answer phones and cut up scrap paper for the office girls to use as note pads. I thought I was gonna lose my everloving mind. Walked out one day for lunch and never went back.
So, back to the store I went.
This time I lasted 5 years in the same dept. But we had a new manager come in who was a cocaine addict, a drunk and your average, run-of-the-mill, 25-yr-old she-beast. She made my life a living hell.
I tried to transfer out of her dept but it wasn't gonna happen. So, I gave her 2 wks notice and moved on, without having another job lined up. It was one of the most stupid things I ever did. Took me four months to find work.
The job I found was working at home, paid good money and I was doing okay for a while. But after a couple years my supervisor retired and I received fewer and fewer orders. I needed something else to supplement my income.
So, back to the store I went to work 3rd shift stocking. Loved it - Loved it - Loved it! No SCs to speak of, great coworkers, busy, physical work. I loved it. After 6 weeks they let me go because my position had been eliminated. In other words, they slashed hours to the bone.
I then went to work for Family Dollar but was only getting about 16 hrs a week. I kept going to the store to try and get a 3rd shift job again, but they just weren't hiring for that shift. Eventually, I trained as a cashier and went back for the third time.
I've since tranferred to fashions and hate every minute of it. But at least I'm not sitting at a desk cutting up scrap paper.

I just hit 5 years on my second go-round for B&N. I worked at Store1 for 3 years, then left for a publishing job at a non-profit in Philly; I left that for personal reasons (I actually really liked that job and wish I hadn't left; though if I hadn't moved back home I would not have had several important relationships (friends and boyfriends), so I guess things happen for a reason, huh? at least that's what I tell myself), and ended up back at Store1 for another 3 years, then 2 years at Store2, and now I am just over a year at the Distribution Center. So in spite of the fact that I have worked for the company for a total of 8+ years (since October 1997, minus one year), that year off "reset" my time and I just got my 5-year pin at Christmas (actually, more like March by the time I actually got it).
