At-Will Employment

What if an employer offers lifetime or permanent employment? Does the employment-at-will doctrine still apply?

Yes, in many jurisdictions the offer of permanent employment is considered to be for an indefinite term and the employment-at-will doctrine still applies. The offer of permanent employment is considered too indefinite to overcome the presumption that the employment-at-will doctrine applies.
