I know it is illegal to tell a person that they were not hired because of the monitoring program, so most people pick some other reason (i.e. more qualified applicant).
But I want to know what managers really think of people in monitoring programs. What kinds of things would you say no way, I am not hiring them and what would you tolerate, if you were to hire them at all as far as why people are in them? What kind of expectations would you put on them? Does it bother you having to fill out periodic forms (this is the one that scares me the most. That managers will say "I don't want to deal with it")?
If they were out of work for a certain time due to stipulations or not being able to find a nursing job, would you hold that against them? Also, if you decided against the applicant (not for qualification reasons), what advice would you give them? Keep in mind not everyone in the programs diverted drugs or did illegal drugs.
Anything else you want to add, I would appreciate. Not being able to find a job while in one (even after being cleared) or even after the program is my BIGGEST fear.
