I got my son an interview with a friend at Lowes, almost guaranteed the position, but he was not offered the job after the interview and drug screen. The details are confidential, but I am curious as to what kind of drug screening they do. Swab test, blood test? What do they test for? Whats the norm on these things? Thanks for any and all information.

ive been hoping to get a job there soon and i hear that they test for everything and will NOT hire you if you have any kind of drug in your system. they are very strict with a no tolerance policy to any applicants and emplyees. if he didnt bomb the intervies, his screen came back positive on something.

Most drugs test even today are still inaccurate- anywhere between 5 percent to 30 percent test positive/ negative false result. Drug test are not about employee or general public safty, drug test are about corporations tring to control what employees do in there spare time. The swap test is the least accurate, the the cheapest for comapnies to administer. It can't detected for all drugs, depending on the test. The urine test are really easy to beat if you have to take one. I suggest if someone knows what kind of test is given- do everything you can to beat the test. The drug test are against the civil rights of Americans.

good question there are all kinds of methods- some are atright cheating let hiding a clean sample- some are just messing with the levels of toxics in your body- there are ways to beat these invasive test- Abbie Hoffman wrote a book on the subject- Steal This Urine Test. The swap test are differnet but from what I have read they have trouble detecting drugs that you have taken even a week ago- they are cheap, thereforth are not very sensative nor accurate. If you work for a corporation and they are doing mass testing, por some drauno in the sample- it will ruin the testing machine and cost the company alot of money to fix- these test are against individual rights.

Keep on taking your drugs.

That's more jobs open for those who don't take them.

A company has every right to treat you the way they want. You decide to work there, you should have to go by their rules. That includes drug testing.

What you do in your personal time is your right, as well.

Drugs testing infringes on what a individual can and can't do with there own time. Corporations are out of control with how they try and control people. I don't use drugs, I reject drug testing on principle- I do smoke, and I worked somewhere that tried to control how much I smoked. You work for a slave wage at a corporation, and the nerve of them to try and control people's habits off the job site. Comapanys have to many rights, and workers have too few rights- I hope people wake up, start unions, and take the power back from companies.

I don't use drugs. But I do have teens. At this time all 3 are good kids but who is to say one day... they may mix in with the wrong crowd.

It's a swab test, not a "swap" test. Slaves did not make a wage, so you can't work for a "slaves wage". Companies have a right and an obligation to customers and other employees to ensure they do not have a bunch of stoners working that could endanger anyone safety wise. Any lumber yard, factory, coal mine, etc., with large and dangerous machinery should always drug test. It is impossible to test people each and every day they go to work to see if they are stoned or drunk at that exact time, so they do their best to see if the people being interviewed are atleast smart enough to "clean up" while job hunting. If they are not, then they don't belong in those types of jobs anyways.

Does it really matter? Your son is doing drugs, he failed a piss test. Shouldn't you be more concerned about what drugs he'd doing rather than what kind of piss test lowes gives. My advise is to buy a kit yourself, it will tell you what drugs he's on.

blah it is a slave wage just enough money that you don't strave in between shifts. When companies brag about record profits, profit means money they stole from workers and customers. Drug test are wrong and I encourage people to sabotage drug testing whenever they can. Just another example of the intrusive nature of corporations into the private lives of employees.

All you people whining about drug tests are idiots. If a company hires you they have every right to drug test you. If I owned a company I would not want someone representing my company in a negative way. I have worked for companies that drug test for 15 yrs, I do not worry about it because I do not do anything illegal. If you want to pass a drug test DON'T DO DRUGS!!!!!!!!!! Bunch of smoked out retards.
