I'm unemployed and living in Philadelphia. I'd like to get an idea of how likely it is that I will have to pass a drug test in order to get a job. [more inside]
I just had an offer for my absolute dream job at a large British bank in New York rescinded 2 days before I was to show up for work. I had signed all forms and passed the background check, but I came up as positive on the (gc-ms
urine) drug test for - of all things - benzodiazepines
. I have never taken a benzodiazepine and am posting anonymously so you know I have zero reason to lie. [more inside]
I expect to fail the pre-employment drug test I took this afternoon - but for legitimate reasons. I'm leaving the state tomorrow morning and won't be back until very late Sunday. Is there anything I can do to bolster my case and protect myself when the lab calls tomorrow or Friday? [more inside]
So, I have a drug screening to go to on Monday for a new job. My back started spasming Friday afternoon and not thinking as far ahead as Monday, I've taken 3 Tramadol for the pain over the course of the last 24 hours.
Am I screwed?
