Drug testing.

How many of you take drug tests regularly for work? if you want, post your job title.

In 2 months most of the guys that are in my class are going to be entering skilled trades jobs as welders. i am amazed at the amount of crying that's been going on over drug testing. the starting wages for these positions range from 16-25 dollars an hours, and they are all somewhat dangerous industrial settings. i am guessing most drug testing is for ins. purposes. most of the placement is done several weeks before graduation, so we would go to our future place of employment, interview, take our drug test at a nearby hospital, then finish out school. I know many people smoke pot in their younger years, and IMO there is nothing wrong with hitting a doobie every now and then. but knowing your gonna have a drug test in x weeks/months and still smoking pot is just plain stupid. rant off

Second that. I don't have to take drug tests but if you have a good job why would you mess with it but if you have a no brainer go ahead and do it up. Kat Williams says it best. www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWhUqo9Aivs Check him out. Freaking Funny!

Combine that with random lie detector tests, and we'd lose 90% or better of the government.

As far as drug tests for work, well, I deliver pizzas. I monkey on crack could do my job, so no, no drug tests. Although it's written into all the paperwork I signed that they have the right to test me.

We don't have drug testing here other than a pre employment test. However, we reserve the right to test but never have.

That being said, I have no problem with it in any employer/employee situation. Anywhere, anytime.

They used to have random testing every month at my shop, I do not know what happen to that. No one has taken any drug test in over a year. My feeling about pot is to each his own, I don't care for but I have smoked it (but I didn't inhale ). I would much rather drink a fifth of Capt. Morgan

I took pre-employment and I think they do random tests here. We are regulated by the DOT and I believe that is the reason we have them.

When I worked summer job at a couple different restaurants they would only send you for one if you were obviously drunk or something, or if you got hurt and were going to get workers comp.

I work for a State Farm agent, I've worked for a few and none of them have ever tested. I am pretty certain if we were injured (paper cut?) and needed to file a workmans comp claim their workmans comp would require a drug test.

I remember when I was looking at getting a job at Home Depot back in 2001, I had to take a drug test I wasnt going to pass with out help (in the form of 3 liters of water and some sort of additive). By the time they were ready for me to drop I thought it was going to come out of my eyes.

LOL...my old employer started to drug test and started with the kitchen...with the statement.."If found positive immediate dismissal." I saw the reports coming across my desk and laughed. If they held true to that statement of above, EVERYONE would have been let go. Instead they turn a blind eye. What they do in their own time is noones business IMHFO

Maybe a bullshit story,
A friend of mine says he place an ad in San Diego "PASS DRUG TESTS, GUARANTEED", $25 and SASE.
He claimed to make over a grand.
He would send them back a plain sheet of paper that said "Don't Do Drugs".
No one ever asked for a refund.

From what I knew of him I believe it.
