Here is some helpful job information for
senior citizens from Yahoo.com
Have you found that your Social Security check does not provide all the income you need while in retirement? Could you use a part-time or full-time job, but do you fear that it might be hard to get one at your age-at least one that would pay a halfway decent wage? There are a group of employers that have joined with the American Association for Retired Persons (AARP) in seeking to attract older workers and are listed on the AARP website, www.aarp.org. The companies recognize older people as an important part of the American workforce. They believe older Americans bring experience, leadership, and skills to do a variety of jobs.
One company that specializes in hiring Senior Citizens is Home Depot. The company has 350,000 employees in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. The world’s largest home improvement specialty retailer is especially looking for people older than 50 who are experienced plumbers, electricians, or general contractors. The employer is also looking for those who desire a career in the home improvement industry. At Home Depot, you can receive full and part-time benefits, tuition reimbursement, and a job with growth opportunities.
The company had sales of $81.5 billion in fiscal 2005 and earnings of $5.8 billion. It does not offer employee discounts, but it does offer flexible work schedules, flexible training, a 401K, internships and apprenticeships, in some cases; and seasonal and temporary work, in addition to permanent work.
There is no guarantee that you will find a job with any company listed on the AARP website, but there are links on the site to check out job opportunities.
