Total service is a measure of the length of time an individual has been employed by a company or organization. It is typically measured in years, but can also be measured in months. When total service is greater than or equal to 9.5 years, it indicates that the individual has been employed for a significant amount of time and is likely to have a strong understanding of the company’s operations and culture. On the other hand, when total service is less than 6 months, it indicates that the individual is relatively new to the company and may not have the same level of knowledge and experience as someone with more tenure.
