    Well the wage difference between tolerable job vs hated job is not signficant, so it just boils down to a question of if the extra income (after taxes) to put up with the hated job is worth it. It doesn't seem that way from what you are saying.

    My perspective, and I am not a big believer in the whole "I love my job" mantra many people subscribe to, is that you should search out tolerable jobs. So I would quit the job you find less than tolerable. If you really miss the income, you can always start searching for a second 'tolerable' job.

    I had a job where they tried to make me file. I was out within two weeks.

    I'd say I would stick around until they found a suitable replacement, then quit it accordingly. You'd both probably be better off.

    This is a good idea. I might discuss it with her and stay until someone better can be sourced.

    You could even help them find a replacement. That's what I did at my job recently. I just found someone else to take on one of my roles that wasn't worth it anymore and slipped her in. They're happy, I'm happy.

    But overall yes it sounds like you should definitely quit.

    What do you want to do in 5 years? Which one will be more beneficial in practical experience for that?

    i am not sure i understand the problem in quitting... is it because they are your friends? if so kyuuei's advice might be helpful - either find a replacement or tell them that they should and you will stay until they do (within a reasonable amount of time).

    i will say that if you can keep it up for 4 more months and round up the year, it would look better in your resume.
