Drug and Alcohol Questionnaire
« on: January 21, 2016, 04:08:50 PM »
Hi Friends!

I have completed the interview stage and am now waiting for an invite. I recently, however, got an email from my PO asking me to fill out a drug and alcohol questionnaire. Is this a bad thing? I had an underage drinking ticket four years ago, but that was expunged from my record. A big misunderstanding. I'm not a crazy party/drinker.

Would say PO must be really considering to invite you..or why bother sending email for more info. Just my take. Want to make sure drugs or alcohol will not be concern while serving,

I would just be honest on it - I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing...

Even if something is expunged, it WILL still show up on the background checks they run, although if you haven't been invited yet, they shouldn't have run you yet????

Either way, I wouldn't worry too much, but as mrbearhug said, it IS a sign they are still seriously considering you!
