    Disable Vet purposely "fired" due to disability

    Sep 24, 2021 - Equipment Operator 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They were quick to hire because they need more employees at the OKC location.

    Cons

    Equipment constantly breaking down. No maintenance. Hired me to operate heavy equipment. I explained, in detail, my physical limitations before being hired. Once the equipment started breaking down, daily, I was expected to do physical labor that I shouldn't do due to my physical limitations. It was suggested that I find other work so I didn't hurt myself. I do believe they knew this would occur before I was offered the job. Similar situation happened with another employee at the same time.
