Temp Agency gives your form with a Drug Testing Facility nearest you. You schedule Day & Time. Arrive at Drug Testing Location Sign In. Once called into Exam Room give Valid ID & sign paperwork. Lab Tech gives you specimen cup explains what to do. Some drug testing facilities time you and other don't. Facet water is turned off and toilet bowl water has "Blue Dye" so you don't try to use sink or toilet bowl water. When you are done, you give Specimen to Lab Tech. Wash your hands and sign off on Specimen. Lab Technician gives you copy for your records. Results are given to your Temp Agency. Meanwhile, Temp Agency uses a specialized agency to conduct Background Check regarding previous employers, any gaps in employment, etc. All you do is sit back and wait for results from your Temp Agency within five working days.
