A question to ponder over right?If you're in Management interviewing applicants. Think about what good reviews can tell you about an applicant has a job for a while.
Seniority some promote from within Also no stereotype of a jobhopper
@Florence Love I think this kind of loyalty used to be highly valued and respected, but I am not sure companies or workers see it that way anymore unfortunately! It can look great when you stay at one place for as long as you can, but it seems harder to do now than it used to be for some reason. I see a lot of young folks hopping from job to job these days. 🤔 I miss that kind of stability and reliability being rewarded! 💓
Longevity is a great thing, especially in retail. I started in a retail job as a seasonal employee & worked my way up to a management position in 5 years. Companies love promoting from within!
Longevity is always a plus. Although sometimes you have no choice (like you need more pay or better growth opportunities). I guess if you can explain that it hopefully won't count against you.
Yes the 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 year pin or gold watch pen plaque trophy or broach or Monogramed whatever at the end can be nice at the awards banquet to the expletive's that think they are running the show no more than you do.
As a business owner, longevity at a company is definitely something I would consider to be a positive attribute. However, if an applicant had multiple jobs and different companies that could also be a positive attribute. For example, maybe the applicant switched companies to take on a position with more responsibility that their previous employer couldn't offer. Gaining insight into an applicant's career path would be something I'd be eager to learn. You can see from my previous work experience I've worked for a lot of different companies. In some cases I was forced to seek new employment because the current company I was working for went out of business! I understand that business turnover is a real thing especially in the retail industry during today's climate.
