Does Kmart drug test upon hiring?
This is ridiculous

I wasn't going to post anything on here, but my gosh people are so ridiculous. It seems like people have forgotten about prohibition! Alcohol was illegal too and that's even worse for you cause when have to seen people suffer from marijuana poisoning? It's pretty pathetic when you have people badgering someone for asking a simple question like mychelle said. It was a yes or no answer or even yes.. they do this or this type of test. For those of you who don't know, smoking cigarettes is worse for you.. and it also contains more chemicals that people put in them to make them addicting. Smoking cigarettes and excessive drinking can make you go into withdrawal if it's done long enough.

Ashley was right about the holier than thou type of attitude from all of you. And it doesn't matter what your parents teach you, because children will grow up to believe what they want and find their own answers. Just like when parents bring their children up in the church and teach them that homosexuality is wrong and the child grows up and is gay or lesbian. It's put in the same category as smoking weed or drinking beer or whatever you want to consider wrong. Just because you feel it is wrong for something doesn't mean you can go and push your beliefs on someone else or harass them or anything because everyone does something that others will not agree with.

The stupidity of "Info" is astounding. Clearly someone who is uneducated about cannabis, and its dozens medicinal bennefits.
Just because something is illegal doesn't make it wrong. The "law" does not equal morality, the "law" does not determine what is morally correct. Cannabis laws are outdated from the 1930's, and it was only made illegal due to racism and fear of blacks and latinos using it. Info, you need to get educated before you speak.
Cannabis does not kill brain cells, rather, it has the opposite effect. Cannabis actually destroys CANCER cells, and prevents them from reproducing. It is impossible to overdose from, and has never killed anyone. It is one of the safest plants man has ever discovered.
Slavery was "legal," so does that make it "ok" because the "law" says so? Surely not. As I've already said, the law doesn't equal right and wrong, especially when it comes to laws that were created due to racism and fear, rather than scientific fact.
Cannabis is actually decriminalized in most states, meaning it isn't illegal. Federal law has no merit over state law; our country was founded upon this very principle, that states can decide their own (reasonable) laws and the government has no right to interfere or change those laws that pass.
I love how to continue to go on and call this woman an "idiot" for defending marijuana. How old are you? What date do you think this is? This is 2012, not the 1930's anymore. Cannabis is one of the safest medicines out there, and you think you can judge someone for using a healing plant? Upon what basis do you think you can judge EVERYONE who smokes marijuana? "You're an idiot for smoking weed," how so? How is one "stupid" for using a safe substance? It is decriminalized, and is legal for medical use in many states, so who the hell do you think you are to judge others?
YOU'RE the uneducated idiot.

BTW, Kmart drug tests you a day or two after they offer you the job. You'll have a second interview, and after that they'll do paper work and will call you in a day or two later. You'll fill out tax information, and health information on a computer. After that is finished, you're given a sheet of information regarding the drug test. It tells you why they do it, and what happens if your result is negative/positive, as well as some other details. After you have been given that sheet, you have 48 hours to drive to the clinic and take a urine test. You will be given a cup to pee, and will go into a bathroom in the nurses room. You can shut the door, but the nurse will be in the room literally right outside the bathroom. If it looks like you tampered anything, you automatically get a positive result for drugs. If you didn't tamper anything, and actually pee'd in the cup and the test is positive for any drugs, you will be called by an MRO (medical review officer), and will have to explain any drugs found in the urine. The MRO will determine if he/she will tell the company you tested positive. If you have a prescription for drugs then you don't have to worry.

I just got a job there a few weeks ago and passed, so the process is fresh in my mind. It is an easy interview, I got accepted fast and I've never had a retail job before. Very friendly managers.

I enjoy smoking cannabis, but stopped so I could find a job. I have self control, I'm a responsible, moderate adult. I can't believe some of you have the audacity to judge all cannabis smokers as if they're idiots, are you still in high school? What world do you live in? The land of ignorance it seems.

If you're negative for drugs, no MRO will call you, but your manager might. My manager didn't call me after I passed, she did a few days later when I was on the schedule.

SO, if you DON'T hear from a doctor within 48 hours, THAT IS GOOD! They do the urine analysis pretty fast, within an hour typically, but they say it can take up to 48 hours. So if you failed the test, a doctor would call you soon; if not within a few hours, probably the next day.

So no call from an MRO basically means you passed. Then they give that information to the company as a "pass/fail," no details are given. Give the HR lady or the manager a few days to process your info and get you on the schedule. You'll get a call from your manager within a few days after you pass.

Weed is natural, the only reason it isn't legal is because they can't tax it. So to the person calling her stupid give me 5 good reasons marijuana is illegal and don't say because it impairs your judgement because alcohol, pain relievers and some diseases do this as well are they illegal or does everyone that has these diseases need to be instutionalized?

OMG this is a pointless argument, pot's illegal, so what? Beer was illegal before too and all the people who can't smoke pot are drunks. The question is about yes or no, does kmart drug test. any further comments should be kept to themselves, it's not that hard. people do worse drugs then smoke weed, look at bath salts. what is the kmart drug screening process like? i'm interested in getting a job myself at the kmart a few miles away to pick up some extra cash to help get money together for college

And Kmart does not drug test 2-3 days after you are offered the job, you have 10 calendar days to complete the test. Get your information correct and don't just make up stuff and misinform people.

You are ignorant and a fool if you believe marijuana is illegal because it gets you high. The phave aper and the logging industries lobbied to make it illegal because the hemp industry was too strong and they were losing money. Do research "you idiot". O, and now its de-criminalized in 2 states and many are to follow.

Everyone that is interviewed gets drug tested, as well as a background check before they're even considered for hire. We have to have the results in before we can even call you to offer the job. Once you leave our office ON the day of your interview, you'll go straight to the Walmart clinic where we have already set up an appointment for you. Then you'll hear from us in the next 3 days.

Yes, and alcohol was illegal at one point in this country, wasn't it?

The laws were changed. And so will future laws change! We just need to keep working on it together!
