They both drug test. & randomly drug test too. Maybe if your friend want a job, he should just quit weed and up his standards on life.

I can pass a test but have heard amazon only pays 10 an hour. I need a job that pays at a minimum 40k per year. Anyone have any ideas?

If Amazon did drug test, they would have about 50 employees left. I worked next to a lady that smoked pot on her lunch break everyday. She said it was the only way she could deal with rude customers on the phone. She would tell everyone around her what she did for lunch. But since they don't do drug testing, telling a manager wouldn't have done any good.
Amazon definitely does pre-employment drug tests as well as background checks. Source: I work there.

I worked there over the holidays and I was never drug tested. Maybe because they were hiring a lot of people at the time? I hope they aren't because I wanted to reapply!(I only smoke weed so don't get on your high horse)

It is just like these cheap skate people around Huntington who try to hire drunks and pill heads to do labor jobs like cleaning and construction. Their work is always bad and they end up coming back to rob the property where they worked. These old greedy cheap skates think they saved money until mr. scumbag comes back and steals them blind. They could have hired a reputable contractor who is honest and payed a decent price for the work without the problems.
I completely disagree with this statement. You want something done, find someone to pay ten bucks an hour under the table with a history of some sort. YOu will get better results than a professional and have more money in your pocket.

Amazon doesn't drug test heck people smoke weed in the smoking area and walking from their cars. And the background check is for felonies, but just depending on what it is they'll still hire you. I worked there for years and even in the old building with the police station they smoked beside the building.

Worked at DTV for over 5 years. They don't do random drug testing but they will do them if they suspect you are on something while at work.

Pre-employment drug testing and background check are a requirement though.

Hope this answers your questions.

I am an army veteran with a master's degree and I smoke pot every day. On my lunch break, when I get home, and before I go to bed. I've never stolen from anyone and I've never had a workplace accident because I am CAREFUL. You people sitting on your high horses telling people everyone should be drug tested and that "drug" users should just stop, you should just keep your ill formed opinions to yourselves. You guys are idiots and have no idea what you are talking about. Weed stays in the system the longest and is the least harmful. Pill and crack heads have a better chance at passing drug tests because their drug of choice stays in their system a max of 2 days, with heavy use, and they are the most risky hires. Pot smokers aren't dangerous, they don't steal, and they are typically careful. You "anti drug" people make me sick. It's an invasion of privacy to drug test. People deserve the chance to do their job right, then mess up. Not hiring people based on a failed drug test is like hiring black babies before they get a chance to grow up and steal someting. Give people the benefit of the doubt, then, if they mess up, deal with it accordingly. You are a moron if you just assume pot smokers are some kind of danger. Especially at Amazon. It's not like it's a dangerous workplace. Also, you anti weed people have no idea what it does to you. It doesn't "mess you up" and make you stupid. It actually helps most users concentrate and not blow up on stupd customers or whoever or whatever idiot you are dealing with while you are high.

I think it is wrong for them to check. If I am 3 pills in but still doing my job well, why fire me? I have a right to abuse prescription pills!
Lmfao! I like the way you think. The only reason they care is because if you fall asleep from the pill or you pass out blah blah blah etc. they are liable if you get hurt. I'm the person that believes that as long as I'm not fucked up at work where they are liable what does it matter if I so drugs off the clock. They aren't responsible for my injuries if I'm at home. From every thing I've been reading its a saliva test (easily passed google it for answers) at hire then they only test if you have an accident at work and need medical care.

from everything I have read they don't test once hired unless you get hurt an need to be sent to the clinic or hospital. But all you need to do to pass a saliva test is brush teeth after doing said drug, and keep a little but of water in your cheek not a lot just enough to wet the test strip. Results come up inconclusive. No color shows up. So they think you are clean.

I completely agree! Just because people have messed up records dose not mean they are unemployable, because with jobs being so hard to find someone with a messed up record will work 10x harder for less pay of those with a clean record because they are thankful they got the job and they want to do everything they can to keep it because the next possible employer may not take their record so lightly. I think people with felonies and what not should not be automatically turned down because they did something stupid. They can't turn someone down because of their color, race, or gender. Why are they allowed to turn someone down because of a not so a creditable past? It's the past as long as they prove them selves to the company, who cares!

You are one close minded person. I hope your kids or spouse smokes weed or does some kind of drug, just to show you not all drug users are thiefs, addicts, losers, or lazy. Drug users can be productive members of society. And as far as the workmans comp. goes of you drop dirty for a drug test the company does not have to pay for their medical expenses or their time out of work. And those "drunks" and "pill heads" you think are useless to society, 9 chances out of 10 they work harder, for less money because they are thankful they have a job, even though their past may not be favorable. You need to open your eyes and quit being so judgmental. People would surprise you. I feel bad for your family (kids and or husband) I'd run away if I had to live with your ass, you think you are better than everyone else. Just like my mother does, Man it's been a nice peaceful 3 months with no contact between my mother and I. Your family will feel the same way eventually if you don't change your attitude.

Yes. Amazon DOES do a pre-employment drug screen.
