That is a question asked by someone who is dirty. Which one, does not matter if you are clean. If you are clean then do not ask that ? because it raises suspisions. And as far as I know it is urine, most companies use this process because the auto-test pack tests all the common drugs in one simple kit. A couple drops of urine in the tester and 5 minutes is all it takes to test for pot, coke, meth, herione, and PCP. I hope this helps.

How insensitive we can be. As a Vietnam Vet trying to get back into the work force I am appalled at the critical nature of some of these comments. Try to be a little constructive with recommendations. I am recovering from injuries and medications. Thx

The assistant manager and HR associate will administer a cheek swab, it's cheaper, faster and doesn't require any privacy that would give the subject an opportunity to alter the test results.

It is none of your business, and not for you to judge if and when someone used, and if they are clean or not. They had a question, and were looking for an answer. You pompous jackass.
Leave the answers to non-idiots.

DRUG TEST: Mouth Swab

I went for an interview in December of 2016. I was emailed a confirmation number and told to call a 1-800 number to do an over the phone interview which is automated. The questions are simple, easy and swift. Once you answer the questions the automated service will instruct you on a time and date for your in person interview.

You have to print out the email they send to you so they can verify that you have an interview with them at the stated date. They want you to dress business casual. On the day of your interview, you will have to show the printed email to the person at the customer service desk and they will tell you to go to the offices in the back. They will tell you how to get there. Once you arrive at the office, you introduce yourself to the manager and they will speak with you. They will give you a copy of your application to look over and allow you to correct any mistakes that may be present. You may have to wait 5-10 minutes. After the wait, a manager will take you to an office and conduct the interview. They go through a lengthy process of questions where you have to answer them questions. Questions such as: "Give me an example of how you dealt with a rude and hateful customer, how you helped them and how you felt once the situation was over." "Give me an example how you were put in a difficult situation where you were overwhelmed with customers and tasks and how you managed to get through it." So on and so fourth.

Once the interview is complete they will ask you to wait once again while they review over the answers and discuss it with higher management. Once the discussion is over between the managers, they will call you back into the office and inform you that they have hired you and ask if you are willing to submit to a drug test. You hold a stick between your teeth and cheek for 10 minutes. The test comes back in one week. Good luck!

Correct. If they are going to offer a job, you sit right there with the hiring manager and he/she watches as you stick the test strip in your mouth. And from what I've read, the oral swap test is good for recent use (a couple of days) but does not reveal use from previous weeks like a urine screen does.

My question would be, once hired, does Home Depot routinely subject employees to random tests?

All that extra does not help, you don't know what other people are going through, everybody is fighting some kind of battle, wether it's mental, physical, spiritual, financial, demons , disease, DRUGS, and alcohol.

That is not necessarily true. If it is a NYC cal swab it can be done at the same time as the interview. A urine test requires going to a lab requiring additional time to adjust a persons schedule. I like to know ahead of time so I will not schedule anything a couple days after the interview to comply with the testing. Assuming because someone asks what method is used is a drug addict is irresponsible and ignorant.

Just interviewed at Home Depot and they had me piss in-store. Is this standard procedure? From the comments it sounds like they don't do in-store testing. Are they likely to send it in?

I just applied for a Home Depot warehouse position in Illinois January 2018. They brought me in for an interview, I spoke with 3 of their supervisors. The 3rd supervisor offered me the position. I then accepted and went and sat down with their HR member who then had me sign off on a background screening and drug test. They had me do an oral mouth swab right then and there. It was then sealed and sent off to the lab. They notified me by email about 4 days later (after the weekend) about the results and the next step. I DID NOT provide a urine sample, it was a saliva sample.
