Davita drug testing

  1. Does anyone know if Davita does random drug screenings?? No judgement please. This is not a clinic/ hands on nursing job.

    From their website: " All applicants, including rehires or reinstatements, who have received a conditional offer of employment must pass a drug test before they are hired by and/or begin working for Davita."

    I know that I would be required to pass a pre employment test but I am not sure if they actually perform randoms (without cause). There policy says that they could I am just wondering if they actually do. There is a plant that greatly helps my pms so I don't want to take a job if it will be an issue down the road. Of course this is only used outside of work.

    I had recently had surgery before my drug test (2weeks) and in spite of the Tramadol I still passed their drug test

    You are only drug tested when you appear intoxicated or under the influence when you are at work
    Most companies reserve the right to test. I have only seen it done once and that was for a teammate who was behaving very strangely on multiple shifts

    What kind of drug testing did they perform? Is it a urine test or hair follicle drug test?

    Most companies conduct a pre-employment drug test. After that, it's only upon some large medical error or poor judgement.
