    So I am not sure if anyone here will know for sure or not.. but I have an interview with Blockbuster Video... and I know they ask if you are willing to submit a drug test and what not but that doesn't always mean they will.. So... if anyone here knows... let me know.

    These are the times when I hate the fact I am a smoker.

    I dunno... one workplace asked me in their application whether I'd submit to a polygraph (lie detector) test, and they've never given me that. That's all I know.

    The Blockbuster near me has one of those signs on the door stating:

    Now we can all understand the grave risk to public safety if the guy who rents you a copy of "Half Baked" or "Up In Smoke" likes to smoke a joint when he gets off work, right? :)

    One more reason to boycott those assholes, as if the CEO's right-wing politics, destruction of independent businesses, and corporate censorship policies weren't bad enough...

    My mom keeps telling me to apply at Target but I know they drug test. And they send you the results in the mail. Wouldn't THAT be a nice surprise for mom and dad to open...

    Hehe that reminds me of when I was looking for my first job, Target was one of 'em... when my dad saw their drug test policy he was like, "No you sure don't wanna apply here..."

    bad bad bad news, I've been told that the parent company that owns blockbuster is a heavy investor in a lab company that specializes in hair tests. So they do hair tests on all employees. This means longer detection period.

    "(BlockBuster Video uses the most up-to-date equipment, and passing such a test can be difficult). It takes several months of precleansing to beat the tests given by Psychemedics."

    You can do a google search for drug test blockbuster for some other pages that also talk about this.

    i dont know for sure but i'm pretty sure most people at my local blockbuster are stoned the whole time they're there.
    also, a lot of job applications will ask you "can you pass a drug test." Always say "YES" actually its the truth.. given the lack of context for the question.. given enough time or proper preparation, anyone can pass a drug test :)
    one guy who applied to the restaurant i used to work at said "no" and , of course didnt get hired although most of us waitors were out back passing bowls.

    I do know that the blockbusters around me drug test all of their employees. I don't know about the hair test but I know they test somehow.

    i've worked at a blockbuster video just last year.... no test, no nothing. i think that generally, they don't bother. i mean, if you tell them you're willing to be tested, that's kind of enough of a test.

    then again, i live in canada so maybe things are different where you're from. anyways, couldn't you just go for it anyways, and when they're actually like "okay! time for your drug test!" just be like, "oh... sorry, i find that to be a breach of privacy", or something, and take off. no skin off your back, right?

    a lot of people say they test just to scare people away.
    a lot of times they won't test you, but that's not to say for sure.

    plus im sure if you were applying to blockbuster, you could easily fool them by swaping with a friend that would go into the store with you.

    haha what always gets me is that places like blockbuster and target give u drug tests, while you dont get any drug tests as a lifeguard. I mean wouldnt you think lifeguarding would be a job where they probably should test you, but I'm not complaining.
