Stashed in: Awesome, Ageism!

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

"I’m lucky enough to get my tech support from JK Scheinberg, the engineer at Apple who led the effort that moved the Mac to Intel processors. A little restless after retiring in 2008, at 54, he figured he’d be a great fit for a position at an Apple store Genius Bar, despite being twice as old as anyone else at the group interview. “On the way out, all three of the interviewers singled me out and said, ‘We’ll be in touch,’ ” he said. “I never heard back.”"

Hmm, I would not have expected ageism from the Genius Bar.
