Hello everyone,

Are my uses of "be worth one's while" appropriate/common? << request for rewriting deleted >>

a. Well, I quit my job at that company because it stopped being worth my while.
b. Lately, it hasn't been worth our while. We're considering closing the store for lack of profits.

Meanings intended: (a) it got to a point where it wasn't worth my while; (b) it hasn't produced good results.

Thank you in advance!
