I made a long research about this but couldn't find anything that would answer my question.
Anyway. I accepted a new job offer by the end of last month. Everything was discussed of course. My start date, pay rate and everything are set. The issue is that, of course the offer was contingent upon passing a drug test in the hospital's designated testing centers. The offer letter I read didn't say specifics, nor the human resources representative. E-mail had another page attached about the addresses/directions of these drug testing centers. I knew I had to get this test before orientation and I still had longer than a month to take it. Okay.
I checked this directions sheet about 2 weeks later when I decided to take the drug test. On top of the page it states that new employees have to get tested within 72 hours of job offer! Well, I missed this deadline. I got the test done anyway. Nobody called me to say anything. I wonder if this happened to anybody else, and if they would possibly rescind the job offer.
I will go to orientation as long as I don't get a call to rescind the job offer and see.
Ps. It is a great coincidence that I had an appointment to get drug tested the same day I got the job offer FOR my school requirements. So, I have a negative drug test result within 72 hours of the job offer; it is just not by the new facility's designated area but my school's designated center. If anything was to happen, I would show that and see if that would help, of course.
I look forward to seeing opinions / experiences on this.
