I cannot believe I missed out on a great job because during the medical I failed my piss test.

Great job & great company. I went through 6 hours of interviews & having to prepare & present a full on powerpoint to a board for assesment. I was told I had the job yesterday I just need to do a medical.

I did the medical & passed with flying colours. That was when they brought the piss cup for me to use & I knew I was shot.

I am not a druggie or anything I just smoke the odd puff on the weekends & it NEVER has interfered with my job. I seriously cannot believe I was knocked back for having THC in my system. Then again I don't think I want to work for a company that invades it's employees privacy by conducting random urine tests.

If there is anything I can take from this it is that I was the best candidate for the role & had it on lock bar the test. I also know my market value is considerably more than what my current employer is paying me to the tune of $50K.

Rant over

That sucks. You had no idea before hand, that they required drug tests? My friend who is an electrician was applying for a government project, and knew that they required drug tests. No different to you. He isn't a druggie or anything, just smoked at times. He stopped for a couple of weeks before, and would have sauna's when we would go for a swim. He passed it.


I had no idea til just before the medical. Fucking cost me $50K PA as that is how much more I would have been earning than in my current job excluding car & all the rest.

I think the most important things I took out of this was

I did not think about hitting a casino when i found out I failed & that is something I would have done months ago & I am a fucking A+ national account manager.

You are bang on Beardo. I will find the right job but trying to explain to my missus I failed a drugs test when she hates me smoking weed was not easy LOL.

ANYTIME you have a huge interview...even when you have "heard" there is no test...ALWAYS assume there is and stay clean for a week or two prior to the interview...

it's the only way to be sure.

Then again I know places that even AFTER you have been hired make you take random tests....so even if youhad scored the job it could have been just a matter of time.

Yeah they do do random piss tests. I was shot anyway as it was only 2 weeks from the first interview to the test & I know it stays in my fat cells for at least 6 weeks.

Fuck em I say they missed out on getting a gun performer & that is their loss.

My wife considers weed akin to heroin. If you actually only smoke it occasionally, you may want to consider quitting for the sake of your career and your relationship. On the other hand, you may want to do what the fuck you want when you want and suffer the consequences of your choices, at least partly out of defiance.

But the question really = Am I undermining my own potential?

Weed slows people down in most cases. It also slows your life down.



And Knowing is half the battle!

And....I really did not want to say this in the thread....but they hired me. sad.gif

I'm sorry man...I start on Monday and they said a huge part of the reason was because my super fast, unsluggish, non-munchie craving, ganja free blood really impressed them when they looked under the microscope.

I will invite ya'll over for a nice Thanksgiving this year.....I'll even be making enough to fly ya'll over!

I agree. I was a chronic pothead for many years so I certainly know the score. No green for me until I land a new gig.

BG glad you got the job!

The good news is that I have applied for another job that is more relevant to my industry experience & hopefully I will land it.

Looks good. I have a interview with a global company & it is only managing one account which should be interesting. The fact that they extended the deadline to accomidate me shows they at least like my resume & phone manner!

Wooooo Touch wood.

Good stuff and good luck Stevenski. What is exactly your role, or what do you do? I remember you were doing some work with OH&S or something in NSW? If my memory serves me correct.

Cheers mate I am a National Account Manager. I do Facilities & OH&S supplies still doing the same job with the same evil empire just changed states. In short I set up agreements with other companies to provide their workforce with occupational requirements in my area of operations from toilet paper & soap to unifoms etc. The role I am going for is to manage one accounts workwear supplies so it is not much different & if successful they will build a team around my skills & expertise.

Time for a change at least change of company & it will be nice to work for a Australian owned company rather than a American one hopefully.

If you puff, and don't know how to beat a piss test, you're incompetent, and didn't deserve the bump in pay.
TheFonz
The easiest way to beat a piss test when you the THC is still in your system is to drink a lot of water. Your piss should literally look like the water you are drinking. The idea being the dilude your piss so much that there will be no way to detect the THC in you system.

Or so I hear.

Beating a piss test probably isn't a problem, it probably becomes a problem if it comes to your attention on the spot.

So tell me Dr how do you beat a piss test with 20 hours notice of taking it having consumed a large quantity of smoko in the last 72 hours? I am curious as the only way I could see is to get clean urine & catheter it into your bladder & that is something I will not do. As for incompetence I am anything but incompetent in my postion, role or life outside business. What I choose to do outside work is no ones business but my own provided it does not affect my performance.

Won't work. If there is too much water in your urine stream that is a automatic blood or hair test at the Dr's direction. At least where I was assesed that is the case.

Either way I don't really give a shit. I have a great job lined up that I interviewed for yesterday & am a shoe in for a 2nd interview so hopefully I get it as it is only managing one account.

Overall, it's probably not a good idea to smoke the wacky tobacky when you're actively looking for another job.

I agree. I have not smoked since even though I am being very selective for who I am looking at for potential employment. As a matter of principal I would never work for a employer who conducts random drug tests as I believe it is a invasion of privacy.

Fitz I have seen that Kronik but I would never bother with it. It is as expensive as the real deal & I don't smoke that much anyways.

You drink water. And when you're done that you drink MORE water. And when you're done that you drink even more water. And when you think you have drank enough, DRINK MORE. Gallon after gallon. Its very easy to do. VERY EASY. And when it comes time to piss, all you are doing is passing water. It is tried and tested. By a number of people, including jail birds I know who were repeatedly tested. Also by atheletes. also by those in your scenario.

That's interesting, because a few weeks ago. With our sport the AFL (Australian Rules Football), one of the best players of the competition who plays for my team, the mighty Collingwood Football Club went to Arizona for 2 weeks with several other team mates for high altitude training.
Well they got tested over there, and when they came back, the player Dane Swan was complaining on twitter about being woken up at 6am in the mornings for piss tests, he just wanted them knocking on his door at a more reasonable hour.
But to the point. Well they were having discussion in those weeks about piss tests and all these drug tests that they are on, and someone brought up how annoying being tested was.
They said if your piss came out too diluted, like that clear rather than yellow, they wouldn't accept it, and waited around for a better sample. So I was wondering if the same would apply with someone in Stevenski's case. If it were to come up too clear, as it would after drinking water, if they would follow the same procedure and re-test because the sample is not up to scratch.

That's pretty much the gist. You don't fail, but they don't accept the test.

As I said that will not work in the situation I was in. If the sample is weak they take a blood or hair sample at least where I was sent. So it may be "VERY EASY" but not when they do that.

Well fuck man, they never did that in the past. I thought only Casinos took hair samples...Hair Samples go as far back as year(s).

It was crazy I certainly was not expecting it & was warned before that if it was a weak sample they would take blood & if need be hair for testing as I would be a automatic "suspect case". I will say that the reason is probably because this company disposes of police drug seizures.

It will all work out though I am certain of that.
