Before You Begin…
The questions you are about to answer are specifically designed to determine your ability to qualify for a government security clearance, a key requirement for many of the positions we offer. Complete and truthful answers to these questions are crucial to your acceptance as a potential candidate. Please bear in mind that a seemingly adverse response to a question may not necessarily be a disqualifying factor, but an untruthful answer would be. The answers you provide on this questionnaire will be used as a comparison for every security document you complete in conjunction with your security access.
Any information you provide is kept in strict confidence and is not viewed or shared with any persons, parties or agencies other than those directly instrumental in acquiring your services. Please note that as you navigate through this application, you are not asked to reveal your identity until you have successfully passed the initial qualifying questions. Should you not satisfy the initial criteria, all the information you provided will be deleted as a safeguard to your privacy and you will be instructed on how to apply for other employment opportunities with Metropolitan that do not require a security clearance.
