ELIZABETH - Many long-time Pathmark employees say they're disappointed that they weren't offered other jobs within the company after the company announced store closures in New Jersey.

Some veteran workers say they were under the impression that they'd get the first pick at new jobs within the company. According to Ellen Immesberger, who is a bookkeeper and has worked at Pathmark since 1977, that's not the case.

Immesberger says that she worked as an auditor for Pathmark for six months in 2004. Now Pathmark says that position is non-union, so even though she worked at Pathmark for 34 years, she was technically considered a new hire in 2007.Immesberger says all she's been offered is a part-time cashier position at a Pathmark store far from her home.
