Does anyone have any idea whether or not a job as a grocery store bagboy would involve being drug tested? I know it probably differs depending on the store, but like in general is a grocery store the type of place to do drug testing? I'd kinda like to know if I should smoke up tomorrow or not (I've been dry for a month)

Thanks :)

Hey, Ive worked in a grocery store for the past 5 years (throughout HS and college) and have NEVER been drug tested. BUT I do know of some that do it randomly weekly, (Pick n' Save). But I think for the most part your probably okay. Hell, if they drug tested at my place of employment Im sure half the people would still have a job. So toke it up!
peace

I've been havin trouble with gettin a job and workin around piss tests.... Your best bet is to stay away from big chain stores, like any of the shop and save or whatever you call em... and walmart, cvs -- any major name. but all you have to do is get an application and read the fine print it says there if they do or not. Good luck

If I was you I would just forget the grocery stores even if they dont make you do a drug test they suck ass. I worked at one (safeway) and it was the worst job EVER. By the way they did make me take a drug test.

Is it just me, or does it seem like a waste of time to dope test someone before they stack shelves and man the cash register. I can see the point of testing airline pilots and the like but jeez, these corporate types are going a bit too far....

The last store I worked at there was no DTs unless you got injured really badly to need hospitization (but this was a country store). I work at Food Lion now, and they test randomly, but I haven't been tested. They told me I would need one within 90 days, but its been past that, so I guess Im free (and plus Im toking up lately so it doesn't really matter)

Yea I talked my mom out of making me work there, so no more worrying about being tested or not. And
