Wasn’t required and medical marijuana is fine at mine. Obviously you cant be at work high or drunk thats common sense.

Absolutely not. There was many 5 of us (none of whom were managers) throughout the whole store that didnt do drugs and if you didnt, you were liked as much.

After one GM od'ing, & associates sneaking outside to hide in the cut & enjoy Cush to actually having to help a few do their duties because they were nodding off while operating the bread slicer, I think the most accurate answer would be "Heavens NO X 500".

Technically, yes though we haven’t been tested. As far as I know, coworkers aren’t doing much of anything.

I was not not have been drug tested. I know several of my co-workers have been through or are going through rehab and the management is very supportive and encouraging. Won't stand for drugs inn the premises or drinking/doing drugs while working, of course, but a girl only a month off heroin, doing outpatient rehab, was promoted to assistant manager and is kicking tail! A very family-oriented environment.
