I recently took my ASVAB and scored very well getting the required score for the job that I am interested in. I went to speak to a recruiter about joining and what is needed of me, off the back he asked me about any previous arrests and charges, I told him I had and assault charge which was simply dismissed, and a possession charge that was a misdemeanor and which by the was only "rolling papers and lighter" no ounces nothing like that found on my person and because I was the driver of the vehicle and it was found in the arm rest which is a "common area" and the passenger had less than point something grams on him I was charged with the drug paraphenllia, charges were also dismissed after paying court fees and staying out of trouble for 1 year, it was 5 years ago and happened while on vacation so I figured just paying the fines and taking the agreement of staying out of trouble at the time was easier to do then having to fight it and travel back n forth for future court proceedings, and also being told that it wont be on record seemed ok...but he said it was an automatic disqualification and there was nothing he could do and maybe a few years ago he could have gotten waived but not so easy now a days. so my question is how valid is the information he told me about waivers not being granted for things like that? I didn't get into detail with him because when I said possession charge he shot me down so should I possibly speak to another recruiter and finish telling the incident in FULL DETAIL and see what happens
