I am in the IT and Mainframe computer industry dealing with large customers and multi million dollar accounts mostly financial institutions.
I manage my customers with out supervision(my manager lets me do what I need to do with out questions) the company I work for has us listed as Flex workers so I get to work out of the house and only leave to take service calls and do installs, the worse part of being a Customer Service Engineer is the weekly standby and call outs all times of day and night most at 11:00pm-03:00am when financial institutes are running their back ups and updating records of the days transaction.
I don't deal with PC's just the company laptop I work on large high level integrated solutions.
Once in 1988 I worked in the same companys factory in FL and had a manager that dinged me durng my reveiw for making too many trips to the restroom and when I told him about
me having crohn's he said that I was leaving the assembly area to often and that caused me to have a poor reveiw I got .07 cents.
Back then I should have filed with HR and American with disability's and truned his butt in...but I was 23 and left not long after that to be in the feild I am in now.
