Kip Conforti is looking for a part-time position at one of the two parcel delivery stations it owns in Pennsylvania. He’s played such roles in his 20 years of business with high school and college students, but this time the frontrunner is a man in his 70s.
Comforti says he is fed up with younger employees who arrive late to shifts, make frequent phone calls, and spend more time scrolling through social media feeds than chatting with customers. . About a year ago he tried something else. The latest is to employ someone who is more likely to have an AARP card than he has an iPhone.
