  • Getting Hired & Step daughters drug use

    Hello,

    I have an 18 year old step daughter who smokes pot and drinks. She does not live with us. She lives in another state, albeit 20 miles away. She does visit our home with her friends on occasion to go swimming.

    I don't condone it one bit. She and I don't necessarily see eye to eye on very many things (are we supposed to? LOL) but I'm worried that it will come up or come out in the hiring process. Sorry, but if it's my job or her life, I choose my job (ok, potential job).

    Any thoughts about this? Any forseen issues that could arise? or am I worrying about nothing?

    Thanks.

    I had 3 step siblings doing time in the state pen. when I was going through the hiring process. Didn't hurt my chances any. You'll be fine.

      I don't believe you have anything to worry about.. I've worked at 2 departments so far and neither have asked about any of my relatives criminal history.

        My brother was a convicted burglar who was dealing drugs when he died. A buddy of my at my last department had a brother doing time for murder.

        You can't choose your family. It shouldn't hurt you.
