Zero Employee or Customer Loyalty IT Support Specialist - Florida -Verizon will not hesitate to RIF/Layoff/Fire you no matter your performance. -Employment is ruled by the fear of being RIFed 2-4 per year as your job is outsourced to India -The majority of management simply rely on a few skilled and productive employees to accomplish the important work that actually retains customers as the managers themselves barely understand how things are done from the ground up on a daily basis. -Upper management (Sr Dir and above) are rotated out on a yearly basis and rarely if ever actually deign to speak to the peons below them who get the work done. -In many groups you are "lucky" to hear from anyone above your direct Manager for months or years beyond the usual mass distro mailings that are filled with woke gibberish and business slogans that do not reflect any reality. -Execs on up to the CEO make obscene amounts of money and bonuses while the working peons can expect .5-1% pay raises per year and lack luster "STI" or bonuses. -Hidden and unofficial yet blatant age discrimination in terms of laying off older and more "expensive" workers.

Hiring young tech savvy workers
Verizon purchased the company where I had worked for several years. I was top in sales in my region and laid off within 3 months of company being purchased. Younger non-performing employees were retained.
"RetirementJobs.com Verizon wireless has posted job openings with RetirementJobs.com in the past, which means it has actively sought to hire and retain age 50+ workers.

Surely, RetirementJobs.com requires more than posting jobs on their website as proof companies like Verizon don't practice ageism/discrimination. The certification process used by RetirementJobs.com could easily be manipulated by any company posting on their site. In short, companies can tell you what you want to hear. I think it's a leap of faith to suggest that Verizon is actively looking to hire and retain 50+ employees simply because they post here. Anyone who worked at Verizon knows they are very good at spinning any issue to their advantage. Unless you can see, with your own eyes, the numbers around Verizon's hiring practices (I'm talking HR documentation), anything else, including metrics they provide, are meaningless.

I believe posting on sites like RetirementJobs.com is a Verizon strategy to "show" they don't practice ageism. This protects them legally from their pattern of laying off older workers. Their actions have demonstrated that they seek to remove older, high earning employees either through layoffs. They are expert in this practice, avoiding age discrimination legal action over the years.
Denotes a Certified Age Friendly Employer

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.
