I recently applyed for a job at Dwights and I am waiting to find out if I got the job. I have heard good and bad things about this place and some of it is from people that work or have worked there in the past.Can anyone tell me what the place is like, do they give you plenty of hours, are they fair to all of their employees?
Im not sure if I want to work there if what I am hearing is true.

Why should Dwight's be expected to make concessions for someone to bring items from another establishment into theirs? I am so sick of everyone boo hooing and getting all worked up over this crap. So the kid is autistic. Doesn't mean he's any less human than anyone else, also doesn't mean his parents get to pick and choose what rules to follow and which to ignore. If they have such a hard time with his peculiarities in public, then maybe they shouldn't put him in situations like that. The folks who own ANY restaurant reserve the right to conduct business the way they see fit. This whole thing is joggingore than a way for annoying assholes to seem morally superior on Facebook in front of their "friends" they probably haven't seen since high school 25 years ago. Get a grip people.

So basically your saying the child should never go outside the home?? Do you even understand autistic people/children in general?? I for one will never eat at dwights again because of this. I have family that is autistic so I know first hand how the parents feel.
just asking

I am sure the parent would have spent $20.00-$25.00 plus a tip for the sever
So DWIGHT'S your lost &you will pay for this
This is what is wrong with this world
Golden rule treat all people like you would like to be treated
I will never eat there nor will any of my family
It's was French fries and a little kid who doesn't understand why you are so stupid and there is really a rule about bring food into a restaurant !
My GOD help you

I think you should stay in your house so we do not ever have to encounter your uneducated moronics in public. Clearly you have never had any experience with anyone who had special needs, lucky for you ... I hope you never have to and I really hope you never end up with a special needs child since you will likely make them spend their entire life inside because they are different. Yea adjustments are perfectly acceptable for someone who had challenges! It's no different to accommodate an autistic child's food aversion than it is to provide a ramp for a wheelchair. Do you also think people in wheelchairs should stay home so that places don't have to make changes to entry ways? You need some love in your cold
heart!
the child is special

I would like to see they family sue the crap out of DWIGHTS and close the place, then turn it into a school or daycare for Autistic children. I dont know why someone hasent contacted national news about this. Would love to see it plastered all over CBS or FOX news.

Do you have any idea how ignorant that sounds? Yes, I actually have much experience with autistic children, teens and adults. That's completely irrelevant though. My point here was that if they have a policy, then-as a business-they have the freedom to enforce it. If they allow everyone who allegedly has a disability to do whatever they want in their place of restaurant, then they likely wouldn't be a business for long.
Since you brought it up, the burden of making the arrangements for special needs children lies with the parents. NOT on society. Some people are more "compassionate" than others, but it doesn't mean families with disabled members can do whatever they want whenever they want.
You can choose to eat there or not. No one gives a shit. I personally don't eat there because the food sucks, not because I think they have some vendetta against the mentally challenged.

I'm going to make an assertion which I (intentionally) know will offend and aggravate those moral high roaders amongst you to no end. Only because many of you are apparently not intelligent enough to realize your fake ethics are nothing more than a contrived response to social media-driven hysterical nonsense, and do not see the contradictions in your rants.

First, I have absolutely no bone to pick with those either directly or indirectly affected by mental illnesses and/or disabilities. I have first hand experience with this way of life, so get over that.

Second, My problem lies primarily with the folks who jump on the morality bandwagon every time some "story" like this gets blown out of proportion. You guys don't impress anyone with the whole "I hope these people get sued and go out of business, these people are the devil incarnate, etc...". Well, not me anyways.

Dude, this is a LOCALLY-OWNED BUSINESS. These people rely on this income to feed THEIR families and generate revenue in their local community. So, wishing harm on them, because someone (allegedly) simply asked them not to have french fries from a multi-national multi BILLION dollar corporation, is total idiocy. They (again allegedly) didn't ask them to leave because the child is autistic, they simply told the family their policy is to not allow outside food in their restaurant. Jesus H. Christ. Simmer down.

If it's their policy then that's the rules!! We all have to follow rules whether we like it or not. I too am sick of seeing this all over social websites !! We are all sorry they didn't get their way, but that's life!! I wish I could take my own beer in Dwight's but that's not allowed either!! I'm gonna go cry about it now.. Get over it!!

What is your definition of "some ethnic group"?

Ethnicity simply means a shared experience. This term has been hijacked by many to think that it means minorities. Ethnicity includes everyone: black, white, yellow, purple, etc. So pick one and get your head out of your rear end.

I feel sorry for the family this happened to originally. But then another lady tried to step in and take all the credit. Makes no sense.

Well said. Not to mention the obvious fact that the kid having autism was not relevant to anyone other than the whiners. It's not like they threw the poor guy out or prohibited him from entering because he has a disability.

Actually I have gone to another restaurant and took it into McDonald's and ordered for my child and nothing was said so ur point isn't valid..and I think everyone is missing the point that it was a child with a handicap where if one little thing is out of place or wrong it devastates him for days...
