Due to issues with the company that I thought was going to be my new employer, I'm not taking the job. Turns out, they'll help, but only partially. I understand that they are under constraints, but they are refusing to answer some simple questions like:
Me: How many disabled parking spaces do you have in the in-building garage and how many are taken now?Well, I don't know. A couple.
Me: When will a new space come available in the in-building garage? If you don't know specifically, can you give me a ballpark figure?I don't really know. Maybe a few weeks. We don't really have any disabled people working here--those spaces are used for the pregnant women or people who've injured themselves. I can't imagine it will be more than a few weeks.
I figured that those would be easy questions to answer, or at least find the answers to. Apparently they don't care enough.
The hiring manager called me yesterday afternoon, probably because he's concerned that I might back out of accepting the offer (duh!). I reiterated my concerns about the parking and the position. His responses left much to be desired.
MGR: Parking here isn't cheap. But, there are several garages with spaces available about 5 blocks away.Yes, but as I explained several times, I can't walk 5 blocks.
MGR: Well, I understand your issues. I've been there myself; I used crutches for a few weeks. But, I still walked.Yes, but again, there is a difference. This may never get better; it may get worse.
I'm not happy with the way things look. Even if they do work out the parking, the manager doesn't seem to get it. There's something to be said for educating people, but I don't want my life to be a living hell because my manager doesn't understand and/or won't accommodate my needs.
So, back to looking for a new job.
