I worked at Pizza Hut back in 1975, and I was told by my manager, that I was being let go, because I was to young to serve beer. I was 19 yrs 8 months old at the time, my manager failed to tell me this at time of job interview. I loved baking pizza for the company it was lots of fun. But being let go because my District Manager came into the manager's office and she told her I had to be let go, still haunts me to this day. I never did forgive... see more

I was active duty for 7 years and 8 months in the Air Force and was forced to leave due to downsizing/reshaping of the force and only had 4 months to find a job, so I sprung to action and attended all the job fairs I could find; fortunately, I was blessed to land a job at the Port Authority of NY & NJ and started working only a few months later and now I've been here for nearly two years. I know it's tough for military members to transition to... see more

I've been in the Merchant Marine all my working career, now I am at the age where I am having medical issues which prevent me from going to sea. So every time I have an interview and explain my shipboard duties and the responsibilities it seems as if they become intimidated, I also explain that my computer skills are Linux based, so what's the problem.

Are your Linux skills usable across a civilian companies needs? if not then you need to acquire those skills

Never got upset with the contractors I dealt with. One of my employees grabbed my phone when I started to dial and snatched it out of my hand. Told him to return to his desk and I would talk to him when I had finished.

Good way to handle that situation, Elinor Amee !
