i have never been drug tested, but I think it's a great idea for companies to take precautions.

I have been drug tested upon being tested for new employment on two occasions. I wish my employer would do random drug tests every few years.  I realize it's rather expensive but I think for the well being of individuals and those affected by them it would be tough love coming from employers.  I know for a fact of several associates that should be tested... and unless they get hurt on the job...it'll never happen.

Have you ever been drug tested at work?  I usually play it safe and drink Pepsi.



Alcohol is not a drug.  There are so many things wrong with your statement.  Yes, I have been drug tested a bunch of times.  So has anyone who has a JOB these days.  Seems only the welfare bums get money and don't have to be drug tested.  If I have to be drug tested to EARN the money then they should have to be drug tested to STEAL it from me!

Wake up, countrygirl 12.  The post says nothing about alcohol.  There's a joke about a Pepsi delivery guy testing positive for "Coke".  Can you say "SENSE OF HUMOR"?

I sincerely hope you can recover from the chip on your shoulder.

I get tested for drugs when starting a new job but really have no worries as drugs are not a part of my daily routine. I think that alcohol is often worse than most drugs and pretty noticeable with the production numbers of people, on Mondays, who have hangovers. Entry to job drug tests are pretty common with higher paying employment. I have never been tested for drugs once I have been on the job but witnessed several people go through the process. Generally these people exhibited erratic behavior that warranted concern with regard to their behavior. At my last job their was an individual that got tested repeatedly because of their odd behavior, failed to pass a few tests, was asked to go through drug dependency training and was eventually terminated due to subsequent behavioral patterns.

Yes several times.  We get random tests.  The first one is when you get hired and others are random.  The last one I had was December 2015.

I do. I never fail any of them. Always pass with flying colors. I am so grateful that my pops always gave me advice about never put anything in my body that is harmful to my health. I don't smoke and don't drink or do any drugs. I love that man for teaching me correct principles.

I have been drug tested but only during the hiring process.  I think all places need to so drug testing more then just at the hiring process tho.  I worked at one place where a guy was on a ladder and fell off,,,  had to go to hospital and guess what,,,  yes he was on drugs and should not have been on that ladder 12 feet in the air !!!!
