Shake Shack: How Focused, Individualized Exploration Led to a Good Job Match

Shake Shack is a popular restaurant chain that serves burgers, fries, shakes and more. Shake Shack has a culture of hospitality, teamwork and fun, and has hired several employees with IDD through our company.

One of them is Oscar Segal, a trainer who has ASD and an anxiety disorder. Oscar has worked for Shake Shack for seven years, and has received recognition and promotion for his work. He loves serving customers and making delicious food.

Oscar’s job was the result of a focused, individualized exploration process that involved his family, his school, his vocational rehabilitation counselor, and his job coach. They helped him identify his strengths, preferences and needs, as well as potential employers that matched his profile. They also helped him prepare for interviews, negotiate accommodations and transition to work.

Oscar’s manager, Lisa Jones, says that Oscar is a star employee who brings quality, efficiency and passion to his work. She says that hiring Oscar has enhanced the customer service, diversity and reputation of the restaurant.
