They seem to be only interested in putting young adults onto the “bench”. Those people are the only ones who will be in line for promotions. It doesn’t matter how good you are at your job.

For every team member there is 5, 6, or 7 hours of standing or walking. There is no place to sit and no position that allows you to sit. The scheduling is always very erratic. I only know one person in the 8 years I have been at Target that was allowed to work solely the number of hours he was allowed before it was deducted from his social security as additional income. He was not there long and while he was he had to constantly remind HR that he could not work more than a certain amount of hours per week. Plus almost all of the Leaders (Managers) are recent college graduates with Target being one of their first retail or managerial position.

Target has rehired me in the same position and same pay as when I left in May 2014. For every team member there is 5, 6, or 7 hours of standing or walking. There is no place to sit and no position that allows you to sit. The scheduling is always very erratic. I only know one person in the 8 years I have been at Target that was allowed to work solely the number of hours he was allowed before it was deducted from his social security as additional income.

After I had an interview on the phone and in person, the manager acted so impressed with my degrees and people experience. He all but said you got it !....I figured because I was 59 and a little slower than the other younger candidates he never even acknowledged I existed. Employers like this want to appear "fair" and equal, but then attitudes of hiring managers thinking they are selecting the next CEO, they are very narrow minded.

I have personally applied to the Hartford on many occasions. AARP had an article outlining The Hartford's program to hire older employees. The article provided the name of the department and person to contact for employment. I called many times stating my purpose for calling and my experience. No one returned my calls.

Recently the Hartford had a concerted effort to force older employees into early retirement by eliminating the retiree medical plan and ending pensions contributions. Many of those who left were replaced by less expensive, younger people or by offshored talent

Testimonials:

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.
