So...I think it has been long enough since I started this thing. Now while no one who knows me is looking, I'll add an entry. I am still unemployed. I had a job offer from a Chevy dealer, but I just can't get excited about GM's land-boats. I went and peed in a cup for a VW dealership. Man is that demeaning. It seems that if I have a drug problem it'll show up pretty quickly at work (can you say "90 day probationary period" I knew you could!) or even in the interview. I really feel that it is an encroachment into my privacy. I set out on this job hunt with the idea in mind that I would only take a job that I was sure I would like, and that I would not pee in a cup for anyone. Well my bank account is telling me I need something quick, so my standards are rapidly decreasing. I even downloaded a PDF application from "Taco Del Mar". They are a pretty cool company but I can't really see myself making fish tacos for a living. I think that employers should state up front if they are going to require pre-employment urine tests. Some do, but a lot don't. If they did, those of us with objections could just avoid wasting our time and theirs even going to those places. I have yet to object in an interview when asked for a drug test, because I am also aware of the suspicion that that would cast on me. I have a right to my privacy, don't I?
