This story starts with what might seem some difficulty. I was working for a non-profit that helped people with disabilities get work. My supervisor, who tended to be a little on the pessimistic side, would measure the difficulty of a client getting a job, by how high the file was. The young man in question was named Alex and his file was measured in feet. I read the files and all of the opportunities were in assembly jobs. He was let go because he was said to be disruptive. I made an appointment to meet Alex and found him an outgoing happy person. He had a condition called Hydrocephaly. I asked him what jobs that he had done that he liked. He had none. What he did say that he wanted to do was work at the sports arena. His caseworker said that this was probably a bad idea as one of the behaviors of Alex was to be very erratic. You never new what he would do next.
I thought about it and made a decision to try something in customer service. My reason was that Alex seemed to lose jobs because he would wander off from his work and talk to people. So what I thought was, why not have a job where Alex would get paid to walk around and talk to people.Click this link here now, Avensure reviews from existing clients.
I went to the local sports arena and talked to the customer service company that had the contracts to run the food court at the arena. We discussed Alex and his personality and came up with a plan. Alex still needed to be able to get through the hiring and training process. I went to Alex and told him the news and all he was interested in was if he would get a uniform. I told him he would but he had to go through the training program.
So we began our adventure. We went to the Sports Arena and went to the training room. Alex was off the wall excited. The training consisted of a series of videos and I sat with Alex and asked if he understood what the videos were about. He did not really answer but he stayed all day and watched the video over three times.
I checked back with Alex’s supervisor about how he was doing. His supervisor was impressed and said that Alex was a very good employee. He was always on time and did his tasks to the best of his ability. I wanted to see for myself and went over to the Arena and found Alex in his uniform that Alex was very proud of. He told me his job was first to be nice to people and then also to clean up around the condiment stands that were spaced near the restaurants in the Arena. I watched him work for a while and saw that as he went from station to station he would greet people that were there for the event. He would say Hi my name is Alex I am having a good I hope you are too. He would then wait to see if there were any questions. He was like a happy machine. He was always friendly always polite and very thorough in cleaning each station.
