By getting away from working at something like retail, and work as a clerk in an office instead.

I've always regretted being on salary instead of hourly pay. They expect you to be at their beckon call and work ridiculous hours

Salaries can be a trap. They can raise your hours as high as they want knowing you're on a fixed salary, which may equate to less per hour than the employees who are paid hourly.

In some jobs, being "promoted to manager" is a scam.
