With regular frequency, Optum sweeps the organization of workers >50 years of age. Like others, the sweep is spread across the country to reduce suspicions.
I interviewed two different times with the Santa Ana, CA office. The first time, the director slammed my choice of interviewing there since I had been a contractor and probably wasn't any good if I wanted a fulltime job at my age (60). The second time (at age 61), when I showed up for my technical interview, I was told the necessary technical people weren't available and the interview ended up being far from technical in nature; a few days later I was told someone else who was a better technical fit for the position was hired.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
