Secondly, it doesn't matter what your client is looking for in that question, do you think they'll ever use you again if they find out you knew?
Jerry Albright said:Fist rule of thumb when filling out an official application: Tell The Truth! Most companies have a no tolerance policy when it comes to falsifying any kind of documentation or paperwork - especially an application.
Many, many, many people have DWI in their background and I have not seen a company overlook someone based on that reason alone.
Honesty is encouraged here. If they find out later and then review the application to see if he lied - and he did - he will most likely be terminated.
