Companies Hiring This Week

Pin It

Last week the latest unemployment figures were released, and the results were a mixed bag. Yes, jobs were created, and we’re happy about that. The unemployment rate was unchanged, and we’re not happy to see it so high but we’re glad it’s not higher. So the best way to approach the  numbers is cautious optimism. Ideally the figures would be much better, but compared to how they were trending at the lowest points, we’re doing better now than we in 2008 and 2009.

We realize that an unemployment rate of 9.6 percent translates into more unemployed Americans than anyone wants. And if you’re one of these job seekers, you don’t care about trends. You want a job. So that’s why we feature this weekly list of companies hiring–to make looking for a job a little easier. So here are 10 companies across various industries who need workers right now.

  1. PEOPLE IN THEIR EARLY SIXTIES CAN JUST FORGET ANYONE HIRING THEM. I WAS LAID OFF AT 63 ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO AND APPLIED FOR HUNDREDS OF JOBS BUT TO NO AVAIL, NOT ONE COMPANY CALLED FOR AN INTERVIEW AND THEY ASK YOUR BIRTHDATE SO IT IS AGE DISCRIMANATION. I WAS A DAMN GOOD WORKER AND MADE A DIFFERENCE WHERE I WAS LAID OFF, MY MANAGER TOLD ME BEFORE SHE LEFT FOR A BETTER JOB THAT NOT MANY PEOPLE HAD MY WORK ETHICS BUT THAT DIDN’T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE WHEN THEY LAID OFF. THEY DID NOT HAVE TO LAY US OFF THEY HAVE HIRED TWICE THAT M ANY SINCE WE WERE LET GO. YOUR OLDER WORKERS ARE USUALLY YOUR BEST BUT THESE YOUNGER CEOS AND MANAGERS DON’T SEE IT. MY HUSBAND WAS LAID OFF FIVE MONTHS LATER AND NO ONE HAS CALLED HIM FOR A JOB AS MY BEST FRIEND, LAID OFF WHEN I WAS. THEY KEPT PEOPLE FROM OTHER COUNTRIES THAT ARE NOT CITIZENS BUT DUMPED US LIKE POISON.

    • I agree with Sharon. I am 59 years old and have been looking for a year with no luck. I was told the same thing…but I made the most money because I was there 22 years….then the last person hired went first and then me the longest hired. This is so unfair..and I cannot get my social security to help us even live. I have been on unemployment for one year and don’t know if they will continue. I cannot even get a job at McDonald’s due to living in a college town. All the young people have the retail jobs. We will probably lose evrything.
