Currently as a student, and then looking for a job after graduate. I'll leave my own job (if i get one) as soon as my money reach 1mil +++ but I don't think I can make it within 15-20 years.

I think it's time to leave your job when you felt like vomiting every time you thought of your officemates.

It is time to leave your job when you're doing 80+ hours a week and getting no credit or recognition from anyone that is higher up. You work your guts out and they just don't give a rats. If you're doing that many hours a week and they can;t see that youwant to achieve/climb higher in the company then it's their problem and because everyone these days is expendable, they just end up employing 4 people to do your 1 job when you leave. I have been screwed over far too many times by companies to wrok hard. If I ever got another job, it would just be as a salesman, that's it, no more no less. If you hate work like I did, more so the people in your store/office then quit. You become so much happier and can truly remember who you are!

Well, in the previous job i had i've quit because of the enviroment.
It was a seasonal job (an hotel in a summer point) so i spent all autumn and winter working there for 75% of the salary (it was that or nothing) so i was supposed to be the night keeper.
But i had to start cooking the breakfast and all, my boss was kind with me and all.
As soon as the summer started, my boss started to be an ass, it didn't allow me to use de computer anymore (during the off-season he was cool about it) everyone started to fight each other, the manager, the boss, the boss's family, the boss's sister started to bitch about me having the computer on (and worst of all, my boss was pretending that i do some manager work like answering emails, complete reservations and all), i needed to get out 15 minutes early to catch a bus wich frequence was of 1 hour, but even though i was arriving 15 minutes early in the night, no one was coming to replace me 15 earlier in the morning.
Plus the most famous night club of the zone was in the way of the bus, i had to trip in the morning with a lot of guys making noise, drunk, sometimes even there was puke all over the bus, so i got tired and one night i arrived and said to my boss that i would quit in a week.
He learned the lesson, in so many years working with them, i never fell asleep during the night, so the guy that replaced me was falling asleep every night so people had to loudly knock the door for him to open and all....
But i got sick, so i got my money and took a whole month of vacations very far away....

I'd quit my present job when I earn decent income online and is certain that it would be sufficient to support my needs. While this hasn't happened yet, I'll have to hang on with the job I have right now because I personally believe that having this job is better than not having any at all.

its easy for me, when you get bored with your job, when the payment is not enough for living, when always nothing you do right, but don't leave yet, always check yourself, are you kind of highly motivated employee or not

I'm really quite blessed here. I am a freelancer and so the work I do is the work that I choose to do. I am a writer and more and more I only write about those things that I desire to write about. I use to be stuck in the 9 to 5 rut but cut the strings and feel much better now.

Well, if you hate going in everyday, then that's a good sign as to when you should leave. It would be more difficult if you have children to provide for, and you could slog it out for their needs at the job you hate, but then, your attitude and annoyance is obviously going to effect them. So, I would that even with children, you should find a job you like working at; benefits everyone including your kids.

I think you should leave when you're getting mistreated or..Work way too much and don't get credited enough.
But sometimes..Some people have no choice and have to keep the job no matter what. I guess depends on your situation.
