    Drug Testing

    Does anyone know if they do drug tests at the Corporate/Direct store when hiring new positions? A buddy of mines indirect store he worked at just got shut down by verizon for failing to meet the monthly activation quota. He worked there for 3 years and is really good at verizon/sales and knows his stuff. He was told he could get a job at the large verizon direct store, but he is an occasional smoker. Do they do new employee testing or just do a test if it looks like you are showing up high/drunk to work?


    I know that people here are going to flame and get all pissy, but its just a legit question. He can do a detox and make sure he is clean, but he really needs a job lined up for when his indirect store is finally closed and wants to get started ASAP.

    They do at COR.

    [edit] Wrong forum, sorry :P. AT&T does, don't know about Verizon.

    Yes, you have 48 hours once they offer you the position to get tested.

    Yep........
    My motto as a VERIZON agent- Treat the customer the way you want to be treated, if you treat them like crap dont complain when they treat you like crap. If I lose a sale I dont lose sleep over it I move on. Some people never buy from my store oh well $10 transfer fee. Some people are mad at the world, doesnt affect me.

    Weird. I called to tell him that and he said that today he called some of the direct stores in the Houston area. He said that both stores employees that he talked to told him there was no drug testing.

    Well they probly said that so he would hit the pipe and then fail the test. But thats just my guess.

    No idea on the store roles, but I had to do a piss test when I was offered a call center job.

    I would assume the same would go for any other corporate role as well.

    Assume yes until told otherwise.

    ALL corp positions require a drug test. Don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise.
