Yes, prior to officially hiring, you will be required to pass a drug test. Mine was administered by the person who interviewed/hired me. It was a large swab that I held in my mouth for a number of minutes, it was then placed into a special cup that twisted and locked, the saliva reacted with whatever was in the cup, and after a certain period of time it showed a +\- result on the side of the cup where it listed each drug that they tested for. It was done right in for of me, I was able to watch as each of the results crept up the side of the cup. It was a bit nerve racking to watch, even though I knew that I had nothing to be concerned about.
Apparently, if you do test positive for anything with that test, you are given the opportunity to go to an actual drug testing lab, and I believe you can submit a urine sample to confirm the results.
Yeah but they will never submit it and tell the store manager that they passed.
Yes. At the time of my interview I was given a mouth swab to suck on and then twist into a container that displayed the results.
They do drug test during pre-hire. They also drug test if there is an accident. They use mouth swabs.
They do for pre-hire. Urine in a cup.
Yes. Albertsons does random drug tests.
