How the hell did you not fill out an application??

Seems odd to me.

Mcdonalds required an application but not a Health Care operation?

Maybe you just should have been more careful. I would have stood there until the fucker went through and I got the confirmation.

just sayin.....

Hope it wrks out.

We do have a great rapport with her I am like her favorite ere cause I do a good job and full of youthful energy. She just sent me a message saying don't trip Im so so happy you work here and you dont owe me any explanation.. still I feel like sayin hey I got in trouble for pot in my early 20's and it's embarassing and that is it, just to keep her from wondering and making mountains out of mole hills


Thanks for all the input guys

Phew ! That's great!! Just a thought, but if you do want to tell her a little more, since she's surely wondering, you may want to just very briefly reassure her it wasn't anything violent, and that you "just got caught up with the wrong crowd when I was too young to know better". The fewer details the better!! So glad it seems to be working out!

A lot depends on your relationship with the receptionist. I'm sure you interact daily in a small office. But I'm not sure how close you are as you're so much younger than everyone else.

I would think that unless you are on her "shit list" it would be a big nothing. And if you have a decent working relationship with her all the better for you. Maybe she'll ask you and if she does, you can just give her a general answer like "it was some stupid stuff from when I was a kid"; nothing violent or anything like that. Who knows, maybe she'll feel sorry for you.

But in the age of you can;t even ask a job candidate how old they are, I think this is all off limits too. Perhaps even if she saw your information on the fax. But I don't know what rights if any you give up if you made any false statements on your job application.

Did they do a background check on you when you were hired. If they did, perhaps the people that matter already know?

My gut feeling is not to say anything - at least not yet. You'll get a sense from her if she's really frightened of you.

Good luck!

EDIT: Our posts "crossed". Looking good for you PP. Happy 4 U.

Some day at work, eh? Glad it worked out for you. Just curious, PP, how old or young (about) was this kind lady? She was a real stand up lady, my hat off to her! We need more people like her. Cause mean people suck eggs.
