Pre-employment Physical Exams
It is fairly routine that offers of employment are contingent on your voluntarily taking and passing a physical exam/drug screening.
Always be honest in the application and physical exam process.
When you take your pre-employment physical, you should consider not taking any non-prescription medication 48 hours prior to the examination. In the event you take some medication prior to the physical, be sure to list all drugs taken prior to the physical and advise the examiner.
Some over-the-counter products can produce positive drug-test results. Among them: Alka-Seltzer Plus, Allerest, Bronkaid, Contact, Donnagel, Nyquil, Primatene, Sinus Excedrin Extra Strength Caplets, Sudafed and Triaminic.
Please be advised that alcohol is considered a drug. Marijuana and other illegal substances will show up for a period of thirty days. Any evidence of these substances will result in termination of the hiring process.
