I am over 50, a retired ATT 2nd level, and I applied for a position I was in for the last 7 years of my career and they "politely" told me i didn't meet the minimum requirements. ATT will not higher an older person. You will never prove in a court of law, but in management, they want younger, inexperienced people they can pay an extremely lower wage, work them 12 hours a day on a cheap salary, and hope they will quit before they get to retirement age. Seriously. ATT is no longer a service oriented company. They have no care for customers or employees. Once Ed left the company to his son-in-law, the company started spiraling to the bottom. Randall got his position only because of family, not because he can run a business. And he could care less about someone like you or me.
