I just finished applying for a job demonstrating food inside CostCo stores. If you’ve read my previous blog posts (and that’s a mighty big if) you read where I complained about birthdates going back to 1900. Now I’ve encountered the opposite and what might be a clear case of ageism.
I had to enter my previous employment and use dropdown boxes to choose the month and year I started. Unfortunately the years only went back to 1980. I wound up choosing 1992, the year I transferred to Alpharetta, and explained the discrepency in a comment box. Still, if you are over 40, I suppose you should have waited to start working.
