I attempted to apply and was disqualified for being a nicotine user in the previous 6 months? And I am pretty sure I checked no on that box. Hhmmm,

I hope everyone here, plans on expressing these points at the Koolaid Event that starts in October. We've seen time and time again, that a 4 alarm fire is ok by Mgmt....but a 5 alarm fire gets attention.

its up to all of us to make it a 6 alarm

unity unity unity!

Awesome...
I can't even get that far. After I login and click the "Apply" button on the job posting, it asks me to login again. I do, and am returned to the landing page. So I search for the job posting, click apply, and it asks me to login again....

After you’re done updating your other apps on any platform, then try using a PC and internet explorer to finish your AS application.

Also make sure to use a gmail account. For some reason there may be issues with other addresses.

Nope, no nicotine: cigarettes, dip, chew, cigars, vape, snuff, snus, pipe, etc.

There is a pre-employment nicotine test when you go to interview. After hired here then you can do as you please... we had a management type in our new hire class giving us a welcome aboard speech with a fat dip in his mouth.

EDIT: Make sure to click no to that question or you will be disqualified.

So how many days/months/years does it take a golf course Cigar to not show up on a nicotine test? Do they take a hair sample, interview friends and does the question ask "have you EVER used tobacco (nicotine) in the past"? or does it say do you "currently" use nicotine products?

Maybe on the instructors case it was just a wad of bubblegum.... or nicotine free snuff?

Pretty soon they'll ask if you have ever or intend to use drinking straws in the past or present. Then I can check NO as they don't work well with Bourbon and/or Beer!

It's a urine test. A quick reading of this page says two-ish weeks for regular users. If it's just a once-in-a-while thing, probably much less.
