Little birdie told me a random drug test is coming our way at a non-federal client...definitely not going to pass. What do guys?

@OP refuse to take the test. Let leadership know and have them roll you off. You will get fired if you take it and fail, not if you roll-off.

Don't try to cheat - that's how you get fired. You can't fail a test you don't take. Roll off if needed.

You can beat it in the next 7-10 days even if you've been indulging daily. Stop indulging now, start exercising and drinking TONS of water and regularly consuming cranberry/pomegranate juice, take vitamin B12 and try to hit the sauna as much as possible to sweat it out. You can do it but it's a pain in the ass. If you have less than that time allotment, you can use a 'system flusher' to try to beat the test... But those sometimes come up inconclusive and can prompt a re-test. No matter what you do, get a cheap self test kit and test self just before you go in for pee test. If blood or hair test (highly expensive and therefore unlikely) you are screwed. Good luck.

Well yeah I can refuse...and then be forced out from the project. Was looking more for advice on how to approach project leadership about the "you definitely don't want me to take this test" issue

@OP third option if you really want to. Get someone to pee in a cup for you, hide it in your underwear with a hand warmer and then go and put that in your drug test.

Or.....maybe just grow up and learn something from this.

If you are adventurous - tell your "clean " friend to take pee test on your name and get a clean report . Now go with the above suggestions for your regular pee test and if it's anything other than clean you can dispute it ( because you have a clean report ) . Blame the f$&@in lab that messed up your sample , emotional hurt and then apply to roll off the project. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Not Deloitte but an ACN manager told me he was on an FS project a while back and an analyst got fired because she failed the drug test.

Is saying I was in Colorado a couple weeks ago a valid excuse?

Thanks A1...very reassuring

Good advice K1. Sooo sounds like my hands really are tied. Either "roll off" from the best opportunity I've had or get fired...guess that's an easy choice

I would be shocked if they actually do it. Drug testing takes time and money. Do they really want to risk someone who's been involved in the project and has already been trained ?

And they recommend me to network with partners to get better chance.
