Yes, they test you. It's also the first question on the application.

Exactly. That's why they can tell people who want to work there that they can't use nicotine products.

I think it's a great policy. But, that's just my opinion as a non-smoker and as someone who strongly dislikes tobacco products.

the reason they don't allow nicotine products is that they get a cheaper health insurance rate...no smokers, less risk of all of the health related illnesses, therefore they will not hire smokers...they do test for it

We are self insured so the company has to pay less.

Those are the rules. If you don't like it...don't apply. If you lie and HR or flight Oops finds out, you will most likely be fired.

I love listening to smokers say that they have a "right" to smoke.

I guess it's different when people say they have a "right" to drink on their days off?

Briefly saw the list of AS new hires for this bid, where they came from, and TT. Just from memory, the largest group were military, then something like 2 each from Skywest, Great Lakes, Mesaba, Horizon, and a few other outfits.

Anyone have this list (with names removed, please) and care to share?
