So I'm no junkie but I do smoke weed occasionally...For Financial Analyst positions do they test for marijuana? If you test positive for this are you out of the running? Do you need to stop all together? What's the general rule of thumb?

- @reeecola I do not hate you I actually like C1. I personally wouldn’t work there because they lack effective leadership out here and don’t understand this labor market. I just told the truth. But I get frustrated with some of the inaccurate posts. Please tell me one thing in my other posts that was inaccurate. :-)
- @reeecola, thanks for the honest reply. Good for you. I feel for the good people that get suckered in over there. At the end of the day I think Capital One thought it could somehow make its east coast white collar slave army model work out here. I had a recruiter from there talk to me. When I told them that their model wasn’t a pay for performance model and that’s probably why they were struggling to find good talent, the guy said something like;”Yeah but it’s a great place to work.” I told him;”This is Silicon Valley, everyone else is giving new grads enough starting cash in RSUs and signing bonuses to buy Teslas.” I was told something along the lines of;”Senior leadership is aware of that and they’re working on it.” That was I dunno like 3-4 years ago. I guess they’re still “working on it.”
Frankly speaking I see that as a total credibility killer. They aren’t serious. They won’t pay for the whole cow. They simply want to get the milk for free. The market is onto their BS now though it appears. Why they continue to BS around like this befuddles me. I mean it costs a lot of money to operate out here no matter what you do and they must be burning cash like crazy. That said what if anything do they have to show for all that wasted time, money and employee churn?
- Weed is for losers. Just stop being a loser for a few months while you're job searching.
- Well, an 8 panel drug test is like $15. Do companies want to save $1 to skip the weed test?
Maybe. But it's easier for a job seeker to get better pay if they have multiple offers. OP says he/she is not a junkie, so if they want to make the most money then they shouldn't disqualify themselves for a few hours of giggles.Jun 6 0
- Poynt / Eng EnJuhNeerMy friend stopped smoking weed for 2 months before he started the job just in case if they do drug tests. He is a financial analyst
- OnDeck GPgj02Drugs and handling other ppls money don't mix. You want to do drugs, go do something simple, like pick up trash on the side of the highway
- Just be honest about it. They cannot reject pureley because of that (and they know it) but if you lie thats a good reason. (And usually they dont check against thc since the test cannot differentiate residual and active subatance and 4-6 weeks the flushing time)
- The residual and how the test works? Google that. Where i live recreational is legal, a company can present a code or ethical norms, can define conditions or behaviors that are expected and demanded to fill a role, but they cannot discriminate based on a test that shows on 4-6 weeks horizon one time usage. Btw this is the law, you are getting the test on the first day of work and not in the interview process, if not, you can sue. I follow it and in colorado the suprene ruled for it (you can be fired for offtime usage) but let me put it this way, I'd rarher not work for a compant who actually rejects because or fire me because of this whatever is the official reason of the rejection. On the other hand if you lie and a test shows positiv and thats how you are fired or got rejected, i see it differently, and we will see in the soon future how the supreme courts will see it around the country. (I help, the lie will happen against your employer and in working conditions and smoking weed will happen with your buddys, in off hours, )Jun 7 0
- I will not argue, since the same argument is going on all around currently. In california if you implement a drug test you should do it after conditional employment contract, if you do it in the interview process thats unconstitutional, interestingly enough if you run drugtest you can fire even medical users after they are employed. (2018 5-2 decision of ca supreme court). Currently the Ab 2069 did not pass yet, but in north cal the local regulation already handles even recteational user under the fair employment act, so employers cannot run random tests. I'm not passing "bad data" but happen to know what im talking about.7d 0
- @OP respectfully, you have a drug problem. You know this is true because you’re struggling with choosing your recreational/destructive drug addiction over your future and livelihood. You can lie to yourself but the fact that you’re even asking the question sort of proves that it’s true. If you don’t want to worry about drug tests go work at McDonald’s or mow lawns. Because that’s where you little weed addiction will lead you.
