I need a job, they won't hire me because of my age, they didn't tell me that the unemployment office told me I would have a hard time finding anything @ 59. I was at the local MCD the other morning and some of the employees there have a hard time getting orders correct. I just wonder if they can read or even punch the right button on the cash machine. This is crazy that someone wants to work and no one will hire them. I was with the same company for over 37 years, very dedicated and they treated me like crap. I even had an interview with a company out in a plant starting out at $8.00 bucks/hour. The HR lady said we'll call you back, they did but it was just for show and tell. HR is killing the job market.
Sales, covered 4 states, made good money and was smart enough to put some back. Just stating the facts dude, HR people have no clue, they are told to get rid of older workers any way they can. MCD will not hire me because they think I'm over qualified I guess, but if they did, I would clean house and bring people that would want to work. For every one that I would hire, I could let 3 go.
later.... taking classes? Been there and done that.
