Interview Research Tip for ASD/Aspergers folk

When investigating a place to work for an interview there are the usual suspects; Google, their website, Facebook, the Better Business Bureau etc. However one place that might get overlooked is The Consumerist which a sister site to Consumer Reports. It collects stories of customer interactions with businesses.

Why look here? Because you may find yourself involved with a company that people have a lot of issues with. For instance you may never see a customer while working for a big box electronics store but the moment you tell someone you work there you will be subjected to horror stories of what it is like to shop at the store.

The information you find should not necessarily make or break your employment decision but it is something to consider, especially if you have any sort of customer interaction.
