So, I went for my 3rd interview for a job I thought I was going to get....and hoped they would send me for the drug test, so I started drinking tea before the interview. Yes, all went well, and they sent me for the drug test. I finished the tea in route and felt like things would be successful. But, when it came time....no....I did not need to pee in a cup....they cut my hair!! (Called my hairdresser right after....she was so upset).

So, as you know....everything is in your hair. They can even tell how long since you have used....anything. It only leaves when the hair grows and gets cut. They cut my hair ( a couple of good locks) near the scalp.

Now, I am not worried, and we chatted a bit. This place does a lot of court ordered stuff, custody stuff, private requests (parents checking on kids) and pre-employment and random screens.

I did not ask about they guys who had a buzz cut. My guess is, they get the hair from where ever they can.

So....previous plans to fool the drug testing process are not going to work these days.

I felt like a few of you on the Huddle might need this info....just a hunch.

For some jobs they do this. It gets even worse for other jobs such as police, fireman, medical staff, even some teachers. Usually (most of the time) they are just looking at recent time periods, not a life story. You should be ok if you've been clean for a while. Personally, I see it as a HUGE invansion of privacy. Some jobs no question drugs should be tested to that extent but for most a urine/blood/salvia test should be good enough, even then it's an invasion of privacy. If drugs affect you doing your job people should know by calling references, forcingthemselves into knowing what you do outside of work, something that most of the time is NOT their buisness.

It also takes skill out of hiring someone, as the person doing the hiring should take some of the blame/credit for a good/bad employee and some drugs do not make the difference between the two. People should be more personable in hiring and be a good judge of a person, not have some test form an opinion of them (why personality, IQ tests are becomming illegal). Not to mention drug laws are different around the country.

Ok ok so I am starting to rant but the answer is they look at a period of time, not the whol thing. I know from experience. Maybe you should consider tkaing money from the government from welfare/unemployment. No tests there...

Maybe you should consider taking a reading comprehension course. I have no worries about passing a drug test...any way, any time.

Maybe someone else will explain my point to you. I don't feel like repeating anything else.

She's flashing her headlights to let you know there's a cop around the corner, but she's driving the speed limit.

I've always wondered if you could fake a hair test with a realistic wig

I think he misunderstood your comment about drinking tea on the way....as if you were trying to flush your system. Instead of just trying to get enough liquid in you to get a good pee going.

I actually thought that was what you meant the first time I read it.

Your first sentence made it sound like you were trying to avoid a drug test positive result.

A reading comprehension course? Was it possible I read it wrong, or do you really believe I read it correctly and just comprehended it wrong? I'd be willing to bet I am more educated than you, the point being stop asuming, start thinking, and stop coming up with bitch comments that take more time to type than "I think you read it wrong" just to sound like a smartass. Looks like more people read it wrong, perhaps you should take a writing class.

The comment, that's a joke to people who have to take tests to go along with my rant, really nothing more to it. I did not know this was a worthless statement/attention/let's chat thread that tried to be more engaging mentioning things like tea multiple times, yet the tea really meant nothing at all along with your post in general. I promise you no one needs this info (still can't figure out what exactly the useful info is), and find it funny you took the time to post a worthless topic but can't repeat any of it's worthlessness for clarification. lol what a joke.

What exactly is the useful info? That some places hair drug test? That we can't fool them? Any moron who can use google or knows a druggy knows this. Or is the useful info on one of these places, a company you're probably not going to name? How does this help?

Meh I was wrong, your game is much more fun.

People could just not smoke weed. That'd solve things.
