The Smoking Or Non Smoking Employer VS The Job Applicant (Devil's Advocate)

Blog Post created by jonescarp.aka.dale.Jan_2007 on Feb 18, 2011

The smoking employer may realize you are gonna need more paid time with possibly less output to

feed your addiction  After all they smoke themselves. Maybe they are thinking of quitting soon themselves.

They might not want another smoker around to remind them daily  of what they are trying to forget. 

The non-smoking employer may just decide you stink right off the bat and not want to smell you coming

They may also feel that smokers provide less focused time per day and may not be willing to hire due to that

So, no matter how you look at it,  in a slow economy with an excess of people needing work  you may

be seen as less employable in many eyes

This doesn't even take into account the additional health insurance costs that they may have to pay

or contribute to.

Think about it and give your quit its best shot!
