I turned down a bunch of jobs because they seem to be the same as pre covid. And honestly I don’t want to go back to the grind/ stress/ commute. And then they say people don’t want to work. Ummm people don’t want to slave themselves while you line your pockets thank you very much

I work with a few people who seem disillusioned by working for the man, grinding away. but they’re still with the company because they’re not sure what to do. So, for people who are tired of the rat race... what’s the solution? How do you break the wheel?

Is this churn happening at other firms too?

I nailed the technical interview, and now have an interview dedicated to what kind of manager I am tomorrow.

I'm kind of scared to answer truthfully as I am a very laid back manager that is not a micromanager so don't want them to think I'm too casual for this position. I also have done very little hiring.
