I have never come across a questionnaire that asks if I have ADD/ADHD when applying for a job... In all honesty. after going through what I have been through, I would have left it blank. My story: I was working as a float tech at a hospital and I gained a lot of respect because I worked hard, was always eager to help and learn, and patients loved me. There was one unit where I worked often and I really loved... After I became an RN, they hired me for a FT position... I was doing fairly well, but like any new grad, I was struggling a bit with my time management... often staying late to finish charting. We had a meeting (me, the DON, nurse educator, and my preceptor) and all in all they said I just had to work on getting out on time, but that it wasn't a serious issue that couldn't be fixed/improved. Yet, me being the perfectionist that I am freaked out and later disclosed to the fact that I have ADHD to the nurse educator, who I trusted and felt comfortable with. She was very understanding and gave me reassurance. I never told her not to tell the DON, but then again, I never could have imagined what the DON ended up doing. I got a call from her the next day saying that she couldn't put me on the schedule until we had a meeting. Mind you, we JUST HAD a meeting! When I showed up to said meeting, she informed me it would be at HR... Then out of nowhere she spewed out all these false allegations about things I screwed up, and even though I shot down every single one, I ultimately ended up being let go. I was still on orientation at the time, so there wasn't a whole lot I could do. I did go to a lawyer and could have potentially gotten a decent amount of money for being discriminated, however the lawyer miscommunicated with the hospital and they got mad. I then went to the EEOC and got a settlement, but trust me, it wasn't much. And the pain and suffering can never be cured with money... It took me a long time to gain the courage to look for another job... but eventually I did, and I'm happy now for the most part. I work as a subacute nurse because I am still scarred for life from that experience in the hospital. I am VERY careful about who I disclose my ADHD to and I NEVER leave it anywhere in writing.
