Voluntary pre-interview drug screening

Hey all,

 

In light of recent events I think a good change would be for us to have TSOs take pre-employment drug screenings before even interviewing. I think it is ridiculous that we cannot find sober and qualified individuals to protect our nation in some of our most vulnerable areas. I have been passed over multiple times here in Florida despite the fact that I can pass a drug test 365 days a year with no notice whatsoever. Yet for some reason, standing TSOs are only fined for breaking these rules and jeopardizing the safety of our country. How dare you come to work knowingly and WILLINGLY impaired. This is absolutely unacceptable. What if because of their impaired state that a travesty were to take place? I think the TSA needs stricter standards and harsher penalties. Any other company would let you go if you failed a drug test.
