    Ok, so I had to take a drug test for this job,
    that I am still not sure that I like! :ugh
    I passed, but in all my years of working (since I was 15)
    I have NEVER EVER had to take one before!
    Maybe I was just lucky...I don't know? :shrug

    I passed with flying colors, and that was never an issue
    ...but why is it they make you feel like a criminal? :mad

    I thought it was one of the rudest things I have EVER had to do!! :(

    I hate peeing in those little bitty cups! :mad

    Just venting a little...

    I feel for you…. I’ve had to take a bunch for no reason other than I can’t say no and the bosses felt like giving them to us.

    You get use to it though…. Hope you never have to take psychological tests for employment, they are awful. Some little sweaty guy asking you if you love your mother and asking you to put block puzzles in order without throwing them across the room. I passed… I swear!! :lol

    I've taken two drug tests, two background checks, a 900 question psych test, spoke with a shrink and had a medical exam in the past month for my job. Plus a driving abstract and the normal interview process, as well as a written exam.

    Well I work in resturants and everyone around me does drugs I don't not however, I don't have anything against them I just don't feel like doing them.

    But I have never had to take one not has anyone I worked with had to take one. I think it is because they would lose their work force if the gave drug tests.

    Honestly I would think anything of it if they gave me a drug test, for one it lowers their insurance premiums and two wouldn't you want to know if you had a drug addict working for you if you had a business

    I just took one this week. Didn't have to worry, as I've never partaken in my life. But yeah, the peeing-in-the-cup thing is a bit awkward. Felt like I was carrying around a rather warm cup of Snapple.

    Drug tests are SOP. As you move up to bigger jobs or different companies thats just how it goes. My current job is the 3rd to ask for a drug test, and also randomly drug tests us about twice per year and I am FAR from a criminal ;)
