What does it mean to be a senior these days?

Gone were the days where seniority means power and respect in cabin crew. Seniority in today's context is a burden to the company. If you are a senior staff, it means higher salary and more perks.If you remains in the job beyond 55 you are jamming the opportunity for the younger and junior ones to climb the corporate ladder. If you are senior it also means you are old and naggy. Most likely you are not familiar with the use of the computers as compared to the junior ones.
In certain companies, you will be appraised by your juniors. This action is camouflaged by the word "feedback". The slightest mistake you make you will be on your way out without compensation.
Hello you IFS and Chiefs you wanna work beyond 55 and then to 60? ( I also heard that the union is asking the company to extend your retirement age to 62). Come on la be more realistic don't expect to be working till you drop dead. Have a break man!
The US president only serves 2 terms. People like Hu Jintao became the President of China only 7 years ago and now he is grooming someone to take over his powerful position in the next few years.
Sure, when you are old you are considered a burden not only to society but to your family as well.
I heard in the old days it was a practice  for the poor Japanese to carry their aged parents to the hills and throw them down. The thing here was the aged parents themselves would be the ones who would unselfishly suggest to their children to have them "disposed off" so the family would have more to eat.
So sad as the saying goes in Hainanese "chaet loud boh tong joung" ( notice my name there "boh tong").

That's the reason SIA inflt service is down the drain as most of the senior crew can't be bothered due to the juniors' feedback.If you correct the juniors and if they are checking on the seniors on that flt,most of them are vinditive and will gave you the lowest rating...so why stress up as you do not have the support of the management, imagine the staff in cabin crew giving appraiser about TPT to CEO.

Where TPT will let u appraise him right?
He started all this nonsense but he won't get away with it.

no wonder so many crews nowadays do not get renewal contract after 5 years.

and no wonder now, sia recruit so many new crews

one of the reason is the seniority where they have to pay a lot while they can safe more money by hiring younger and inexperience crews anyway

Easier to "PREACH than PRACTICE".

Soon all the Junior crew will be appraising The CEO and Chairman.

So guess in time to come, all the Junior crew will implement different standards of service.

Clap clap clap!!!!!

What a pathetic idea!

Don't be silly, no way will the management let the junior appraise them let alone the CEO and Chairman.

In regard to retirement community, the cost of living will definitely depend on the location. And if you decide to settle for assisted living, it's best to know how much level of care you would get for your money.

When choosing for a retirement place, physical structure can be deceiving. It is a good idea to spend enough time to ask questions and talk to the people in the area to get their perceptions of the place.
