Training Program for Senior Citizens
General Office (Current Employee), Spartanburg, SCJuly 16, 2014
Pros: last act of a desperate man
Cons: you work for non profits who are not hiring.
I am not happy at all with this particular program but I do what I have to do to survive. Why aren't employers hiring? So many Americans are out of work right now. It is truly very, very sad and disgraceful.

Great Place to Work
SENIOR MAIL OPERATIONS EQUIPMENT ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Lakewood, COMay 21, 2014
Pros: benefits are great, people are great, what else can one say!
Cons: not sure there was any.
I am fortunate to have worked at AARP for 25 years plus. The people make you feel like you are family and that you are thought of well. there are busy days and slow days. Mail comes in around 4:30am and that's when it all starts, the eagle and opex machines start up being filled by a staff members, the work kick out by the machines are then given to – more... mail openers and other mail opened by machine. The open information is fed to computer so that numerous keyers key the informaton holding membership names, address, membership numbers, amounts of the checks, money and so on.
The checks are banked, and balanced. Checks are then picked up by the bank and we start over for another day. There is more such as corrections, trying to read indecipherable checks and members information. I have learned skills, respect, and I can do more everyday. Management is great, cares, respects and sometimes rewards for doing a great job. Even the Management in Washington DC takes time to learn your name and tell you that you have done a great job when visting Lakewood, CA. The hardest part of the job is catching up with the eagle and opex machines, and also the slower days. The best days are when there is work, and everything goes without a giltch. Co-workers are friendly and caring. – less

Front Desk Receptionist (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAApril 11, 2014
A typical day is answering phones, making copies, faxing, & applying for online jobs, have clients sign in & contact appropriate person.

Someone is very gracious in helping me learn Microsoft Word and introduce me to Excel.

Co-workers are very friendly and helpful.

I do not view this job as hard.

The most enjoyable part of the job is coming to work – more... to learn something new – less

Avoid AARP.
IT employee (Former Employee), Washington, DCMarch 10, 2014
I have worked for 7 large corporations (For Profit and Non-Profit both) over the past 30 years. AARP is the most disappointing organization during my career. Their culture inhibits interaction between business units, which in turn filters down to distrust between individuals. AARP's treatment of their employees is as antiqued as their business model. – more... My advice to potential candidates is to keep looking and by-pass AARP. – less

JOB TRAINING PROGRAM
Receptionist (Current Employee), Merrillville, INMarch 5, 2014
Pros: clean and safe working environment
Cons: not enough work space for the number employees there
THIS IS A JOB TRAINING PROGRAM WHICH HAS ALLOWED ME TO ENHANCE MY ALREADY ACQUIRED SKILLS AS WORKING AS A RECEPTIONIST ALONG WITH OTHER TRANSFERABLE SKILLS. I RUN THE FRONT OFFICE WITH JOB DUTIES SUCH AS ANSWERING THE TELEPHONE, DIRECTING CALLS TO THE APPROPRIATE DEPARTMENT. MANAGING THE WAITING ROOM AREA AS TO SENDING CLEINTS TO THE APPROPRIATE DEPARTMENTS, – more... KEEP LOGS, ASSISTANT CLIENTS WITH FILING OUT APPROPRIATE FORMS, FILING, ASSIST PROJECT MANAGER WITH SPECIAL PROJECTS. I WORK WITH SEVEN OTHER CO-WORKERS. THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB IS WORKING IN AN AREA THAT IS NOT LARGE ENOUGH FOR THE NUMBERS OF WORKERS. THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART IS THAT I ENJOY MEETING , INTERACTING AND BEING OFASSISTANCE TO OTHERS. – less
