Watch out for Crystal Sargent in Kindle she is a scammer. At SItel she took took up money for AVon and we never got our money or items. Called Avon she wasnt a agent but we didn't find out until she wouldn't give us our money back. Management couldn't to anything most orders was for $20 or less. She was leaving until her boyfriend had and accident. Hopefully some one reads this before they get scammed by her.

I should think any company like Amazon would be required to have their drug policy posted as a matter of record and be made available to the general public. My last employer took great pains to inform the employees of their new drug policy just so there was no repercussions. If someone did have an accident, the company wouldn't be liable.

I was at orientation yesterday.. They "claim" to do "random drug screens" on their employees. I guess I'll find out sooner or later. The temp agency that I went to does piss tests, but for pre-employment for amazon I along with about 12 other people had to do a swab test.

non drug users do not socialize & hang around with drug users. or inquire about drug testing on their behalf. "only smokes weed?" suggests you smoke weed.....get off the drugs & get a job!! stop looking for employment that will tolerate your drugs. pathetic. the eligible working class base in htgn is pathetic & the acceptance of drug use in its local culture is discusting. get off the drugs you big wimp.

Hate to break it to you, but I went on my Second interview Tuesday. Today is thurs. I went in for my welcome to the company meeting and there were about 20 of us. Me being the only manager - the rest fulfillment associates. We all sat there for 10 minutes with a saliva drug test in our mouths. And then they told us how to seal the bag etc. They definitely drug test before you work there. No credit check. Yes background check. And verification of education ex:high school diploma.

They shouldn't administer a drug test unless you show signs of being high, or damage something on the job.
Had a friend who failed the mouth swab and he hadn't smoked in weeks (he claimed), and basically admitted it when they asked "Do you have anything to say about that"?
SO.. never admit to being a user, say you're fatigued, suffering from allergies, etc.. and use eye drops/cologne if 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!

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.
Well said sir. I couldn't have put it better and I loved black babies metaphor. And I'm black!!!! Also, thank u for ur service bruh.

So we know someone who is getting hired by Amazon but lied on his resume to show he was still employed but actually has not been employed since April. Who knows what else he is lying about to this company. How do you notify Amazon that one of their potential employees is a fraud. He is due to go to Phoenix for training next week and then report to Pennsylvania to be a supervisory. Phony and a fraud .
