Education and Employment
The place to discuss your future as a person with Aspergers Syndrome / Autism.
This week I applied online for a temporary Seasonal "Personal Shopper" position at the big Tesco in Town, they said "guaranteed interview for disabled if you meet the minimum criteria", so anyway I answered all the questions honestly, and at the end I got the result "We are sorry but you do not meet the criteria", eh?!
So anyway, I am very interested in working in the Retail trade, after several years of working in Charity shops I've got some customer service skills under my belt, but at 40 am I too old now to kind of start my career in "proper" retail?
Also 2 months ago I did an NVQ Customer Service course through my previous second Charity shop job which they said I passed but 2 months later I still don't have the certificate yet, which leads me to believe I might not have passed, either that or the certificate is "Lost in the Post".
The kind of Stores I'd like to work in would be either Supermarkets as a Checkout Operator, or Mobile phone Stores, or Video game/DVD...
