I was charged with felony possession of controlled substance 4 years ago.
Case was dismissed after I completed Drug Diversion program PC1000.
I was also charged with grand theft 2 years ago.
This case was dismissed after I paid for damages and performed 16hrs community service.
Here's my problem, I'm trying to apply for a job as airport screener with the TSA(transportation security administration). I'm doing fine with the application process so far, they made a contingent offer for employment, but first I must pass their background check. They are inquiring about my criminal record,
1) have you ever been charged or convicted with felony
2) have you ever been charged or convicted of drug related crime
3) if no to 1) and 2), have you ever been arrested, imprisioned, convicted for other crimes not listed.
CAN THEY ask those questions?!? It's so unfair! Have I been charged/arested?!? Those cases were dismissed, do I have to answer them?
FYI, the form they're using on me is
"Questionnaire for National Security Positions (SF86 Format)"
It's just a airport screener job... ....
