whberl is basically right. The college kids normally don't have a clue unless they worked in the industry, as a worker , during their summer or other breaks. The one exception I feel is important is that a manager doesn't have to come from within the company but within the industry. The industry would know what is going on while the untrained or unknowledgeable kids would not.

If you know of anyone or agency needing a youth mentor specialist with great success, we need to talk. My success record is stellar as my mentees were not intellectually engaged and earned "F's" and "D's. In less than 1.5 years eighty percent of my mentees were recognized as "honor students" without suspensions. I was invited to Melbourne Australia as keynote speak for Gilson College students. Some students are now attending law school as of 2014.

From the list of companies the market is flooded with managers from these companies, they might last a week with the title but about 2 hours with the pay...

I think the problem here is too many chiefs and not enough workers. Ever see a 19 year old boss around somebody over age 50 it's pathetic. Time to reinstitute the draft and get these punks to the front line so if they want to hurt somebody they can, just not in the work place.

Several years ago, the company I worked for had a strike. During the strike several managers were laid off. When they went job hunting companies wanted to hire them as managers with no expertise in what the company did. This was mind boggling, if you don't know a job, how can you efficiently manage it? Later I watched our company start hiring College Kids as managers (they were cheep labor). It was kind of entertaining to watch a Machinist with 20 plus years on the job, run a college kid in circles. All manager jobs should come from within the company, train and promote from within. After I retired the company decided the college kid route left a lot to desire, but after 10 years of not training or promoting from within they found they had no one to replace the college kids with. They tried to get some of the recently retired managers to come back and train replacements, but got no takers.

I completely disagree. A manager's job is to manage, and a good manager should be able to do that in any company. I was a manager at NASA and took another manager position at a biomedical company, and then moved to a plant that manufactured batteries, and then to a company that manufactured tactical missiles for the government. I was successful at every position. And as far as your whining about kids as managers and how unfair life is...that's the way life is! We either make our own future, or fail in the attempt. I suspect you're one of the failures. BTW...the word is CHEAP...not cheep!

I had to work as an hourly employee for a short time after the company started hiring managers instead of promoting from with in. One day, the Johnny come lately manager asked me how long it would take to finish changing the whippet valve. His crew had spent all day the day before on it. Funny, but there was no such thing as a whippet valve, so heaven only knows what his people did all day, he sure didn't have a clue.
