I have many disabilities, and the only times I was hired was when I successfully hid them during the interview. When I've been honest I was never considered for employment.
Just because someone is able-bodied doesn't mean they're going to be a good worker. I''ve worked with a lot of able-bodied people, but only some are good workers. IMO someone with a disability has more they want to prove, they won't call out, they will try harder than most. I think it'd be foolish to not even interview them just because they have a disability. It doesn't necessarily mean they need any accommodations.

Agree that it wasn't handled well, but why would someone want to interview for a job they most likely aren't suited for? Basically in retail you run a register or stock merchandise, or both. It can be fast paced and physically demanding. I can't imagine what sort of a position he was hoping for.

What?

I agree with you - and I didn't see in the article that it mentioned what position he was hoping to get. If what he says transpired is true, then I think it's despicable.

One thing I didn't understand was his one tweet:

Today I was supposed to have a job interview at a store. I want to keep the company anonymous so let’s make up a name like Tuesday Morning in a place called idk Hancock Village.

I have to wonder why he would say something like this, when in fact, it was the actual store and location that this happened. Was he trying to be sarcastic or something?
