up at Ameriprise?


I know it was at Ameriprise.


I am a 40 something: ok, there, I admit it.  I had a shiny resume and aefa called me for an interview.


Age discrimination oh my! and there was an age bias law suit settled by a bunch of older "sexy ladies"... need I add.


details provided later.  The "professionals" are totally wearing me out today. I'm pooped; I need to get my 40 wink nap in - us 40's get tired after posting for a few hours.  


Surely ameriprise doesn't still do this?

OMG the virus is SPREADING!

Someone call a moderator PLEASE!!

correction:  I know it was at aefa.  I did not interview at Ameriprise.


Amerprise has got to be a better company.  But due to my discrimination experience, I would not interview there just because they have/were/are affiliated with aaefa.


long story short:  hired my a man - I had a family illness and could not return for the second interview.  Reapplied: interviewed by a young twentysomething (and they let these people make hiring decisions for them!)...


Lost my interest in the career field until recently after watching several episodes of SO show.


Several women filed a lawsuit against aefa and won.  That should tell you something.  Experience before age.

The Interview:


First a computer screening test with questions to find out out deceptive you could be. 


You had to sell a travel package and if you looked out for your best interest and that of the company (and not the client); that is, you sold the plan with the most commission, then, you passed the test.  


I did get a good impression of the male who interviewed me the first time, though.  (He was an experienced, higher level advisor); Later when I went back, the young twentysomething didn't care that I had already passed the first screening.


Was called sevral times since they liked my resume but after I complained about possible age discrim, wasn't called again.


Saw my resume and again this company, now ameriprise, attempted to call me again.  Bad taste: no can deal with this type of company again.   Yuk Yuk Yuk! No way!


I would imagine that surely Ameriprise have changed their hiring practices by now.

Again you amaze us at your capacity to be STOOPID!  AEFA and Ameriprise are the SAME COMPANY!!!  They changed names, that's all.

Next?

She didn't face age discrimination, it was MORON DISCRIMINATION.  (Actually, I think that is perfectly legal!)

Feb 9, 2007 10:22 pm

Wow, I'm starting to feel like joe is my shadow.


Shadup!  You morons!  I wanted to give my experience so other, older, sexy ladies could benefit from it.


I could give a f f&k whether they call me: i calls it like i sees it.


aefa is no longer affiliated with amex you butthole. Shucks: now you got me acting like a "professional" just like you. 

Feb 9, 2007 10:25 pm

I mean ameriprise isn't affiliated. No ability to edit posts here.


So you can judge a person's work qualifications by a few posts and just call them a moron.  Whatever floats your boat.  I can likewise say you guys suck as an fa, too. Back at ya.

THey only discriminate against ugly women. Pretty women are welcome to bring coffee to all the men and pick up their dry cleaning.

Feb 9, 2007 11:57 pm

Well Sugar Dumplins, you didn't read my posts.  It was a man who hired me: and a young 20 something who chose not to when I returned to reapply -- I told him I specialized in driving to the local Starbucks and passed right by the dry cleaners. 


Some of older babes have more goin on than the younger babes.  I mean I work with with some chunky (read LARGE) women.  We've had time to collect a nicer wardrobe and a few pairs of shoes you know.


If the boss is a woman than hire a handsome hunky dude who specializes in 'something' or knows how to smile real nice.

Everytime you refer to yourself as a sexy lady I throw up a little in my mouth. For some reason I am picturing 5 foot 5, 215lbs, and 5 o'clock shadow.

Feb 10, 2007 12:20 am

Well now, that's for me to know and you not to find out.  I don't need your validation.  However, thanks for the information:  I now know where that expression came from "choke on your own vomit" and do hope you do so.


RickyBobby - assume you are a man: I'm picturing a man with no hair, very bad breath but ... might need to wear a bra, and besides being braless is ball-less as well. Not a pretty picture.

Shadow?  Don't flatter yourself pigpen.

Butthole?  Wow that's nice.  Who is stooping to what level now?  What's wrong dear?  Can't take the heat when reality is put on the plate in front of you?  Then get OUT of the kitchen!!!

Yes you are right that Ameriprise is no longer part of Amex.  That is perhaps the most intelligent thing you have said during your brief posting career here.  However, what you said(or at least implied) initially was that AEFA and Amerprise were two different companies.  That is hardly accurate.

Then again, how could we expect someone who idolizes Suze Ormon to be accurate when it came to representing the facts?

Feb 10, 2007 12:58 am

Sorry, and you were starting to be nice.--Blame it on that RickyBobby, new here but he has been teaching me and said if I can roll with the punches  - that this is excellent training for me.  I didn't know clients could be so brutal.  Now that explains alot.


Let me add some of these new adjectives to my repertoire so as I contemplate, I'll know just what it takes to be a good fa:


Hmmm,


moron, (check)


hmmm, pigpen (check)


(nope: already know butthole) check  


fat, 215, 5'5" (actually little talller), 5 o'clock shadow and you're not a sexy lady either, you nasty client: now let me do your fa plan or else!


throw up in my mouth (hmmm, how about toss it around, spit it out and gargle with it and then make a nice lugee...) kool!


Wow! I've learned alot today! ...much more than I could have learned from Suze Orman.


Planrcoach was right:  there's a heapload of "professionalism" on this site.

I will engage in no more "personal insult" conversations.  Back to topic or nothing else to talk about here.
