Seniority trumps Skill set
lead position, twice (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – August 9, 2018
Big companies have lay offs, I get that. The issue here is seniority is better than any skill set. No matter how good you are at the task, anyone that hired in before you stays and you go.Can any company stay in business with that policy in present day competitive world? The real issue is some people that have been there 40+ years, could retire with full pensions, 401s and social security, they just won't leave. No life outside.. But that is only half the problem, some do nothing but drink coffee and shoot the bull all day, the others have lost drive or will to work, can not walk without a cane, eye sight is gone and couldn't drill a straight hole with a drill block... And yet management has no plan to buy out, disqualify or stay on these people to get the schedule met. Too afraid of a lawsuit, or do not know how to go about the procedure to work the problem. Great company if you hired in 40 years ago. Can you imagine working with people that have never had another job in the real world, the mind set is unbelievable. There are good people there, and a few great supervisors. The great supervisors hands are tied by upper management head in the sand attitude.
