Millenials are ruining it for everyone

Techpill

I'm 22 years old and just starting to go job hunting, however Millennials are ruining the work place.

They are lazy and have a level of self gratitude and validation that is off the charts, asking for higher salaries based on loyalty, creating a "better" culture in the workplace, and constantly complaining. Now any and all HR/ Managers that I interview with seem to have this skepticism that I am also lazy and feel the need to be rewarded for it.

When will this stop? It hasn't happened often yet, but a good amount of interviews went from good to trying to explain to them how I'm not like their typical millennial trash.

Holy fuck. You know why they ask for loyalty bonuses? Because employers are fucking cunts, and have far too much money for what they do.

Yes, some businesses work hard and struggle, and thus can't pay their staff bonuses. But you know what's true about those businesses? They're failures. They're usually inherited by some boomer whose daddy did all the hard work. By some useless son who now thinks because he sits looking at xhamster in his office all day he's qualified to complain about all the millenials in his business.

Yes there are shit millenials. There always have been shit workers. But business owners and their managerial slave force are often way worse.

If you run a business, be just, not fair. Accept the faults of others, to an extent, because you need to understand nobody gives two shits about you really. Self-preservation is the name of the game, and you need to know that if you want to make money off the backs of other people, no matter how inferior you might consider them to be.

Having been on a large number of interviews, I constantly get asked questions like, "How good are you at showing up on time?" and "Do you consider yourself to be someone who can follow directions?" I tell them yes, that they shouldn't even have to ask, and they look delighted.

Then they turn me down because Suzy from HR's nephew really needed a job, or because I came off as someone who wouldn't enjoy the mandatory company picnics, and then wonder why their workers are all shitheads.

See where your 'Im not lazy like everyone else' attitude gets you

They all started off like you. After a while you'll realise that being an employee isn't meritocratic.

You get paid for your time. Sure, sucking the boss' dick and doing unpaid overtime might get you a promotion in 10 years time, but so what? There's easier ways of making money, they're just not as safe as being an employee.

I've had a few jobs where I had very little work to do due to mismanagement. Many times it felt like I was in the office for no other reason than to waste my time. Really pissed me off because I had so many ideas for projects during the day but no energy to do anything after hours.

Boomers are ruining it for everyone

I'm 58 years old and just getting ready for retirement, however Boomers are ruining the work place.

They are lazy and have a level of self gratitude and validation that is off the charts, asking for higher salaries based on loyalty, adding "experience" to the workplace, and constantly complaining. Now any and all HR/ Managers that I interview with seem to have this skepticism that I am also lazy and feel the need the need to be rewarded for it.

When will this stop? It hasn't happened often yet, but a good amount of interviews went from good to trying to explain to them how I'm not like their typical boomer trash.

He gets on his knees in front of his next hopeful employer.
"Now, why dont you tell me why I should hire you as opposed to everyone else who comes in here?"
You pull down his zipper and are astonished by his girth, stunning you and turning you into a stuttering wreck.
"I, I, umm...I'm n-not like your typical millennial trash."
"Oh no? Why dont you show me what makes you so different?"
You continue trying to explain: "Well, everyone else is lazy and has a level of self-gratitude that..."
"No, no." He interrupts. "I said....SHOW ME."
"Yes, sir...Its just, everyone else is asking for higher salaries based on loyalty, and I..."
He sighs and his erection goes soft.
"We're done here." He says, matter-of-factly.
"Did I do good?" You ask, naively.
"Im afraid not." He shakes his head.
"What could I do to improve?" You stutter, on the verge of crying.
"Next time, you should bring kneepads."

I am probably ruining it for people because I have been applying to jobs with ridiculous stuff lately because every application is fucking boring and I am fed up with looking for a job so I am just having fun now.

Recently had to fill in an "alternate name" for some reason and put Otto Von Bismarck. I have also been a chief banana inspector, pillow tester, professional cat wrangler, noose tester, reverse psychology suicide prevention, apple polisher, dog masseur, professional tapist, etc. Literally anything stupid I can thibk of I put down.

If and when I get interviews I show up in either basketball shorts or swimning trunks and a t-shirt. I am always hot so I wear shorts all the time. I am tempted to get a kilt (and eventually will anyway because I want to compete in the highland games around here) in my [grandma's] clan's colours and wear that with one of those bonnie hats with the pompom on it.

I have been told several times that I have left an interesting and memorable first impression. Inside I am dying though because it's soul crushing tedium.

I've never worked somewhere longer than 2 years because I get offers that are always at least 5-7k higher in salary and I ask for a 5k raise get told 'no' and then quit the next week.

I honestly can't imagine what the business world is going to be like in 20 years.

@Techpill
Wew lad, where do I start?

I worked in 7-8 places and most millenials were better than fine. Westerner EU and those coming from big cities are usually more self-centered thus bitchy and seeking gratitude.

Asking for a raise based on loyalty is understandable. I work at a place for 5 years and I receive nothing but the regular agreed wage, for all those 5 years? What about the changing political spectrum, me growing as a person, having a family, the business booming, changing monetary system/decrease of purchasing power, etc etc.

Present yourself better if you don't want to be seen as a lazy shitstain. I wager you don't even appear in a full-suit because "no one else does it".

I started my first job at 19. Even if you work hard and put in a little more effort than normal, it means nothing. Your connections and who you know are what employers and managers care about. You may get a compliment at the least and at best, you keep the job. Otherwise, those bratty kids know people. They can be shitty and still be well off based on who they know.

16, the legal age in my state. Worked at a zoo for 2 years, spent senior year as the IT intern at my high school, spent 3 of the next 4 years at IT through a school work study and some outside contracting at the same job. Spent 2 after that at a corporate company for a pay bump, left when it turned into a glorified call center

he didn't get internships when he was in school

You have got to be joking.

And don't come back with some trash about how "internships aren't good experience" or some bullshit. You know as well as I do that it's not about valuable experience, it's about brown-nosing and dicksucking. It's all a game, and being bad at playing the game is no different than not bothering to play at all, from the employer's perspective. If you didn't get internships in college, you're not a team player, and no one wants you on their team (surprise, surprise). Don't like it? That's fine, just go into work for yourself. No one said you have to work for an F500; you're just the one who feels like they have no choice but to work for one because you have no creativity, ambition, or self-confidence.

I started working when I was 8 years old, delivering newspapers on the streets in my area and continued to do so till I was 18. Worked in a green house during the summer when I was 14. Worked 3 summers at a printing place at ages 15-17. Graduated high school with 35 grand in my pocket. All I can say is the people my age in the work force were fucking retarded.

15, I was a lifeguard for ~5 years, then transitioned to office work as a peer academic advisor (and also did sysadmin work on the side). I worked my way into leadership/management positions in every job I worked on the way up.
What position are you at now?
I'm a project manager for an F500.
Are you happy?
Nobody's life is perfect bliss, but yeah, I'm reasonably happy. I'm not going to pretend that I've worked harder than anyone else around me to get where I am, but I hold my own, and have specialized skills that only 2-3 others in this organization have. I'm fairly fortunate to have been given the opportunity I have, but I did a lot to earn my place too.

If quality is not the goal, don't strive for perfect to satisfy someone else. "good enough" is usually just that.

Other than that, well, the hours and stuff, as well as the safety concerns, make it seem like you're in some sort of labor job, where you probably get paid by the hour. With that in mind, you're doing the right thing even though it's tough to stick up for yourself in those situations.

However, you're probably not doing the little things right. Believe me when I say your manager will gloss over you leaving early on Friday much more easily if you had a good conversation about something non-work-related in the past week.

It sucks, but being sociable is way more important than being a good worker drone. Being a good drone will keep you from getting fired; being a fun person will put you on the management track, no matter how many days you stay late or come in early.

Get your work done, but just as importantly, don't pass up an opportunity to connect with your boss & your boss's boss.
