  • Personal Information PRIOR to Interview Maryland

    88% of our work force supports customers on a military base. We are contemplating revising how candidates are brought on the base, but this would require a member of my staff to ask for personally identifiable questions prior to meeting him/her. Unfortunately, the form we are required to complete asks for full name, date of birth, place of birth, SSN, and address. Granted I would not ask just any one applying for a position within our organization. It would only be those candidates down selected for interviews.

    How would you feel asking candidates for this question?

    Are talking about getting these applicants base passes just for an interview?

      Correct. We would indicate that it is a visit and only valid for one day on the form.

        If the base is requiring this of you the employer to allow applicants on the base, then it is perfectly legal and permissable. I work with many military facilities and only a couple of them require this. My company uses off base facilities to try and avoid this hassle.

          Where is the home/corporate office? Can the initial interviews not be off base? Is there some reason they HAVE to be on base?

          That way, while you might still have to ask for the same information, much of that information you would need for a background check anyway....which we always do after the first interview...when they are a strong contender for the job.

            Unfortunately, sometimes our customers ask to meet the candidate we have down selected and to have him/her tour the facility they would be working in....

              OK. It's not illegal to do so.
              Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
