NO Shake Shack does not drug test, but do not take that as an opportunity to share your personal drug stories at work. The environment is very laid back, and the managers have this "as long as you're not doing it on my time or near the restaurant" attitude. However, I have witnessed managers and team members get fired for smoking weed around the restaurant. So keep what you do in your personal life, personal. If you and another employee have shared interest, explore that off the clock and out of the surrounding area. Shake Shack is a big community based restaurant so they keep tabs on what is going on in the neighborhood and if they hear something negative about their employees they will take corrective measures.
