Recently I found myself searching for a new job and was quite surprised at how much information potential employers want from applicants these days. It is not enough anymore to provide them with all kinds of personal information. Now they also want you to urinate in a cup. To a certain extent I understand the need for all of this personal information, but having an actual biological sample from applicants seems to go a little bit beyond necessity.
I understand that large corporations need to protect themselves but I feel that it is a bit of an intrusion to ask someone to urinate in a cup. Although going through a drug screen is a common occurrence for many employees, I have to wonder if it is really necessary and if it really protects the employer from drug users. Most drug screens will only show substances that are currently in the applicant’s system and many of the most serious illegal substances can be purged from the system within 24 hours and this fact makes me think that the process of drug screening cannot possibly be as effective as employers would hope it to be.
Unfortunately for employers, there is a wide variety of readily available supplements and systems out there for people who wish to clean any unwanted substances from their bodies. In this way, a drug screen can be thwarted because a drug user can slip through the screening process only to continue their usage once they have been given the job. These supplements and cleansing systems are widely available at many sports stores and other health stores and can be 100% effective in fooling a drug screen. Not that I know that from personal experience, of course.
I do know that if you have to take a drug screen and you feel as though you are not prepared, there are many quite, easy, and cheap ways that may help. If they are it is a GNC store in your town you are in luck. They commonly carry several different products that can cleanse your system within a couple of hours. Because most drug screens require that you take the test within 24 hours of being notified, these products begin to work in as little as one hour and will be effective for several hours so that you can take the test and still feel protected. Just remember that you still have some rights even when you feel as though they are being infringed upon.
