Abstract

Three questions were developed in accordance with the subject and purpose of the study. Are opposing attitudes and criticisms common among early millennial managers toward millennial employees? Is it common among early millennial managers to dislike being called millennials or to refuse to be millennials? Is it common among early millennial managers to tend to claim that they have qualities similar to those of the previous generation? Through the purposive sampling technique, a sample of 61 managers, born in 1982 and 1983, was determined. One-on-one interviews were conducted with the managers. The findings of the study revealed that 1- Opposing attitudes (criticisms) were common among early millennial managers toward millennial employees, 2- It was common among early millennial managers to dislike being called millennials or to refuse to be millennials, 3- It was common among early millennial managers to tend to claim that they had managerial qualities similar to those of the previous generation; and therefore, the study presented a result that supported our observations in the beginning.
