Seniority should definitely matter in the workplace. Dedication should account for something. Hard to get dedication anymore.

It should definitely be one of the factors in deciding promotions, layoffs, etc. but job performance should be almost as important. I'd much rather promote or keep a 5-year employee who did their job well, was dependable, and always at work than a 20-year employee who "coasted" and/or didn't perform as well. Seniority is good, but it shouldn't be the only factor.

no, work performance should be the determining factor. someone could be there for 10 yrs and think they can slack off bc they are set, but the person whos only been there for 3 yrs has worked much harder and productively, so seniority doesn't mean crap!

I agree performance should be a factor, but so should seniority education and so on? Just because you know some one or use to work with some one you shouldnt move straight up?!?! Right? Suck A$$es always get ahead. I have seen people get promoted over people with a college education just because they sewed underwear together or made shoes! Please a women gets a job over another person with a degree just because she can count stitches?? The person with more time and better performance didnt get the job how?? Suck A$$es I'll tell you.

Seniority only counts in a Union Shop. Non Union means the bigest kiss ass wins.

Seniority should matter for somethings... vacation, days, off etc. however the reality is that if some sits in a position and refuses to grow their skill set or even minimally keep up what their current job duties are there should be other factors beside seniority that come into play with promotions,scheduling and pay rates. The reality is America has developed a lazy workforce and that is why industry is leaving our country. Any person should seek to continually improve themselves and their performance. I have been in the middle of seniority and saw my company bring in people at the same rate of pay with better schedules. I have also seen people above me who have been there longer and are completely incompetent. It is a sword that cuts both ways.

You sir or madam are wrong. I have 25 years off seniority at my place of business and am a department manager. When the time comes to find an assistant department manager I have to ask the most senior employee in the store instead of the hardest working, most qualified people. Seniority should be a factor, just not the deciding one.

Seniority should matter.But sadly it doesn't where I work. I have been at the same job for fourteen years. I am a hard worker. Very dependable.I have went to work evening when I have been in so much pain. I have also had to work alone several times because someone always calls in sick. The manager refuses to come in. I can not go to the CEO. According to her , he tells her when someone from my department comes to him with a complaint and who wasthe person complaining. She brought her friend into the company. She have been with the company ten months and she gets the weekends off and sits in the office with the boss for an hour while on the clock every single day.1669

Seniority doesn't necessarily mean anything. Unions are wonderful things but often you get people who are very undeserving of the privilege. The people who abuse those unions and are not worthy of those should not be rewarded but you can't do anything about it. I know people who would make fantastic employees at certain organizations but seniority takes presidence. There are a lot of people who do not earn their seniority through hard work but rather just "stick around". Some major pros and cons to seniority.

The only people that say senority should matter are the ones that have it.

If you look at it from a business owners view. They want the best person in that spot that can do the job. Not the person that's been there the longest. Usually someone with seniority at a positions just means they have done a well enough job at that position to get promoted, so they've been at that position longer.

The only time seniority should matter is when you have 2 people who are equeally qualified for a job. Then seniority should be used to decide. Seniority shouldn't even been in the top 3 deciding factors.

1. Experience at the position appling for.(not seniority, you can get experience doing something at another job.)

2. Education.
3. Dependability.
4. Seniority.

Ofcourse this is with all other things being equal. When you add the human factor into it. Things like breast size, sexual favors, bribes,...etc are put above all other things. This applies heavily to political jobs.
