No, I'm not here looking for a pity party. I just want honest advice... I'd worked at a hotel years ago and they knew about my 'disorder' prior to hiring me. Yes, I told the manager during the interview about my epilepsy and he and others were nice and accepting of it. 😊 One day, I pulled a staff member aside and told her that I thought I had a seizure coming. Thankfully, she was very nice about it and helped me through it in the break room (away from customers). I guess I had bitten her and I still feel terrible about it. 😔 Yes, I've contacted her to apologize and she told me that it was alright because it's not something I can help. Anyways, my mother had picked me up from work that day very shortly after that had happened. When we had gotten back to her house, we decided to just relax, and maybe nap for a little bit. After a while, her house phone rings and I see the caller ID pop up on her TV saying 'Hilton Hotels'. Well, I thought they were just going to be kind and ask how I was doing or something along the lines of that. Nope! They told my mother I was a threat to the company and I was fired. No, they never contacted me about it! It was hurtful because I cannot control my epilepsy and they knew I've been dealing with it prior to hiring me. So, that entire ordeal has had me SO nervous for another job. Plus, I've been a wreck trying to find another business to hire someone like me, dealing with epilepsy. #advice #answers #Hilton #hotel #EmbassySuites #
