    Hi everyone. I'm an MBA student, and unexpectedly landed an interview with J&J for a brand management position. I'm not a regular drug user by any means, but I was at a reunion party with some high school friends last weekend and I smoked a blunt. If J&J does urine testing, I'll be fine. If they do hair testing, I'm screwed. So what's the verdict? What type of testing do they do?

    They give a proctology test.
    After you are hired it seems like you get this same exam weekly.
    Take my advice, don't work here.

    I appreciate your advice, but that doesn't answer my question.

    They'll offer you a joint and see if you take a hit.

    Don't worry about it now. The chances you'll get an offer in brand management just because you got an interview is pretty slim. Don't get ahead of yourself.

    Urine if any at all.

    It depends what they are testing. Usually marijuana will show up on a urine test. Cocaine is a hair test.

    Before, tell them your RX drugs. But I can bet the test will show the joint you smoked.

    No, if you're not a regular smoker, it's undetectable in urine in a few days. I bought a home urine test to be on the safe side, and it came back negative. I'm just worried about hair. That's in your hair permanently until it grows out and/or falls out. If J&J does a hair test, I'm screwed. So if that's what they do, I'm going to turn down the interview to save myself the embarrassment. Can someone please confirm that J&J definitely does a hair test?

    Don't worry. Definitely just urine.

    Not true, they are now also doing random hair tests. A friend lost out on a position because of this.

    I haven't gotten a job anywhere in a major corporation, injcluding J&J, where they did not do a urine test. I never had to give a hair sample.

    It's a urine screening and you will likely only have to do it if you are offered the position so you have some time before you have to worry about it.
