I applied for a job at our local Credit Union/Bank, to work at their customer service call center. Upon filling out my application (on-line), they had a part asking if you had a disability. Now I am NOT disabled, but I clicked on the link to see what they considered a “disability”. Much to my surprise, they had the following listed: Bipolar Disorder, OCD, and PTSD.
That was the strangest thing I had ever seen. They had other things listed too, but I had never seen these things listed as a “disability” before.
Of course, I checked the box. I didn’t specify WHAT my disability was, but according to their listings, I certainly fit into that category.
This could either help or hinder me getting a job. At this point, I’m not even stressing anymore.
I guess this is some federal thing. I had never heard of it before, and I’ve never really considered myself as having a disability since I don’t qualify to receive disability benefits.
