Extended Interview Situation

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

DH (celiac and casein free) is up for a job opportunity.

 

So far, the application has been handled online and there have been emails and phone calls with the recruiter. 

 

If that goes well, he gets an invite to a week long "orientation." Job offers are handed out (or not) on day 5.  

They put you up at a company owned hotel and breakfast and lunch are catered.   

 

I know he can handle feeding himself. There are fridges, a microwave in a communal kitchen area, a grill and he will have transportation. He's great with a camp stove and can be as paranoid/careful as required in this communal area.  

 

At what point does he mention celiac, if at all?   It IS on his application by way of a required medical checkup.

Personally, I would not disclose that I have celiac disease. It has no impact on my ability to do a job. Let's face it, people hire based on personal preferences (looks, ability to fit in with the team, etc) no matter what company policies are.

It would be great if an HR rep could chime in. HR laws change constantly and I do not keep up as we are self-employed.

Oh, I would use the microwave, but would not use a camp stove on the company grounds.

I don't think I would announce anything to anyone as that sort of labels you as High Maintaince. If he doesn't eat at the meals order extra beverages and if someone asks quietly mention that he has "allergies" and let it go at that for now. Just my take on it.
