The best job offer I ever received was from the Mercedes-Benz plant in Alabama. I wasn't interested in moving, but their recruiters were persistent, so I gave them a shot. The one part of the offer that made the biggest impression was they would put my family and me in a furnished apartment for 90 days at no cost while we looked for housing.
I learned about toxic leadership in the military, and when I returned to civilian life as a technician, I promised myself I wouldn't work for such leaders again. Bad promise to make because I started job-hopping, leaving dealerships and bad leaders — including moves from city to city, state to state.
One such move, we spent five months living at a state park in various cabins and the campground, and at a local motel. Another move, I spent four months living in my car separated from my family, which — not surprisingly — was how long I worked there.
