Question

I have worked for the same company for almost 18 years. I recently quit due to a lack of respect for the management team I have worked with for the past 8 years. Their integrity, honesty, and lack of care for putting in correct information into a program to be outsourced.

Hey, I am 70 and I need to work. I do not want to live with anyone, unless I marry. I saw many seniors discriminated against and treated like crap; even some with Ph.D. discriminated against. One senior hired a lawyer and the lawyer told her the district had to prove discrimination. So this particular employer decided to go out side the country to hire unqualified foreign employees. Another senior hired an investigator and revealed that none of the foreign persons recruited outside the country could pass any exam. So the state dropped the exam requirement for them to get them employed. This resulted with many potential seniors, qualified and over qualified unemployed; discriminated against. But the employer did not see the COVID-19 over the horizon. So I would not be surprised if things GET REALLY SUPERNATURALLY CRAZY by September. Shutting down unemployment for months at a time, and harassing seniors by telling them they don't need to work or monies is going to catch up. So all seniors should continue to look for income anyway.

Denise, you are practically telling my story except the quit part. Is really hard outhere to get an offer. I getting interviews but after that ,silence or a polite rejection. One interviewer even comment "you have the same years of experience as my age". Companies look at age but dont even know that we are still healthy,experienced ,stable and mature.

Ageism in the workplace

I've been a contract Project Manager for several years, having successfully managed large-scale, big-ticket technology projects for several Fortune 100 companies. Recently my contract with a multinational bank ended and I began searching for a new contract. With more than 20 years of solid experience and multiple globally-recognized certifications under my belt I've never had a problem securing my next contract, at least not until now, at 76 years old. I've interviewed at a couple of dozen companies - a few of them multiple times - I've been refused employment for no apparent reason beyond my age. Ageism (aka age discrimination) is alive and very well in hiring organizations today. #ageism #discrimination #seniors #hiring #interviewing #general

Too old to be hired, too young to retire.

I've been in the collection industry for the last 41 years. I was laid off in October of 2019. I do business development. Currently I'm doing a temporary assignment as a contact tracer. If anyone knows people in the collection industry please don't hesitate to share my resume. I have it posted at https://sbtresume.weebly.com. I'm very good at generating new business. I've also got a lot of transferrable skills. Thank you in advance. #resume #nationwideusa #ageism #seniors #sales #hiring

Hi @jamya goff ! According to Publix's career site, here are 9 reasons why you should work there! I think this will give you some insight into what their company culture is like. When you're ready to apply, search for openings near you.

It honestly depends on what location you work at and who the managers are. I’ve had a great experience with Publix until one of my associates drugged me and sexually assaulted me and the store manager defended him, saying I was asking for it, and then spread rumors about me around the store making me quit. Then two months later the same guy sexually harassed a new associate and when she went to the same manager, she also said she was asking for it, defended the guy, and quit as well. Publix in general is a great company to work for, however they do have their favorites and no matter what they do to you apparently there still going to be prioritized. I was forced to work with him everyday after that until I quit while being bullied. So just try to feel out the management and environment before you apply. Because Publix is the only company where I have had this issue.

working after 60

I am in my early 60s with no real skill to speak of other than typing, cleaning, taking care of others and an amazing capability of getting along with just about anyone. I also have a past that even though I have expunged, still stops my opportunities to get hired. Any suggestions? #seniors
