    I'm really depressed.

    I know why.

    I work for a company that will not promote me or help me go further because I work with idiot managers and directors. Its all about sales, not a nuturing, respective workplace where things get done. Evidently, as a new store manager was hired, I get less hours and while the sentiment among all the staff is the same (he's a douchebag and no one likes him).

    Now my real problem is that I want to leave this company. I want to pursue other things and work for a company that will at least acknowledge the work their employees put in. I don't care too much about pay, but you know, I'd like to make enough money to invest, buy another car, etc. But I don't feel that the jobs available here (unfortunately, low pay, retail jobs) are worth my time and experience. And I don't want to stay in that environment of constantly meeting sales goals. I'd rather do more productive things like spreadsheets, meeting analysts, etc.

    I don't know what to do. I'm at a dead end.

    Im not saying you should, but moving to a bigger and wealthier city along with finding another job 'might' improve the situation. It could be a place where people have need for your skills. I just want to add tho, that you shouldn't let the quality of your life depend on other people. Its basically a direction of oppertunity that you should follow, jump in to see where you can be the one who can forfill a need in a job that enables you to grow and move forward financially.

    Don't mean to hit you while you're down, but this country's unemployment rate is extremely low. If you can't find a job in this economy, maybe it's your skillset that needs updating.

    As for finding a company that appreciates you, I think you should stop being so naive. In a workplace, you're there to get paid, not appreciated. Bosses usually don't verbally appreciate their employees just like employees usually don't verbally appreciate their bosses.
