Dear Experts, Are companies giving themselves the luxury of sending multiple people for pre-employment drug testing given the current state of the job market? If I am sent for a drug test do I probably have the job? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question:Q#240 We only run a drug test after the choice is pretty much made. There's a good chance! (@beneubanks) Q#240 I would bet that you are on the shortlist, but nothing is set in stone. Just don't fail the test! (@gradversity) Q#240 Many people fail drug tests. Co's usually ask top 3 candidates to cover selves in event 1st pick fails. (@jtodonnell) Q#240 Dpnds on co & how many intvws u've had; if several, drug test prob means ur being seriously considered. (@juliaerickson) Q#240 A drug test does not mean u hv the job. Only an offer of employment means u got it. It is a good sign though.
