I just have to say this. I retired from ATT (early) 5 years ago. But the economic situation has forced me to look for work again. I applied for a job back with ATT, the exact same job I held for 8 years prior to retiring. I was notified by HR that I did not meet the minimum qualifications required to be selected for the position. I had all the correct buzz words in the resume, answered all the questions, and am "ready" to go back into the position and hit the ground running. Yet, I was not chosen. The only reason I could be chosen is age. I found out the person who got the position was a young person out of college with no experience at all. ATT is engaging in discrimination against potential candidates based on age discrimination
That is all
I got notice today on company website, that AT&T is hiring in your area. 300 Management and non-management jobs. Something is fishy about what you're saying. You may want to check into the hiring spree.
you sucked then, you would suck more now, you think they don't know that?
stop blaming it on your age.
I guess you were stoopid 5 years ago, what do you say to that? You made a made mistake, so you think you're smart? obviously you're not.
they just canned an older guy in lubbock because of his age. he sold me a phone a few days back. he was an ex-minister but they were out to get him because his daughter was racking up insurance claims.
Sounds like you have an attitude to me and are hard to get along with. As an investor in T, I'm glad you wern't being hired back. The younger guy is going to have more drive, and won't be looking to retire when a tough assignment comes along. Kick back and enjoy your retirement -- it's what you wanted. Age and experience are not always a bonus.
I have been with Bellsouth for 3 years 15 years with AT&T, came from the midwest, just informed I am not needed and will be layed off. First thing out of my managers mouth was this is not due to age! I'm 57 what do you think?
I didn't realize Bellsouth was over staffed. Actually I can't imagine any AT&T area in a position to layoff right now,, they need every manager they have for union negotiations and they have the non-management force at skeleton crew level in my area. Are they going to offer you a good package to leave?
So with what Onebubkas and CenCoast have experienced, is it wise for a 30 year AT&T vet to retire? Or hang in there until AT&T strips the non-management benefits back to the pre 1940 work package? And it's not just happening non-management, I'm hearing that the first level managers are losing benefits every year. I've seen many 15 year employees and up throw in the towel and take their skills and experience to other employers and now I'm contemplated changing careers also. But everytime someone walks away it gives our stock a boost and makes me a more valueable asset to the company.
I was forced early retirement from BellSouth on December of 2011. For 25 years, I was a management employee. I got promoted 3 times, and didi some leteral moves.
On July of 2007 I was rehied in At&t Mobility and join the CWA union. I was hired as a Retail Sales Consultant for 5 years. My Operations Manager says I am not manager material.
He doesn't care to much about me. I guess it could have been alot worse, If I started my career in AT&T mobility. No non management (union) employee been promoted in my retail store within the last 4+ years. So who is the idiot, my manager or me,
The votes are in - The manager is always right and non management is alway wrong.
