I'm still waiting to hear the results.

I did get a phone call from the company yesterday.  Apparently the company that did my background check didn't forward my pay stub to them.  She asked me to fax another copy to her so she can "close out your background check."  She did bring up one concern in reference to my credit.  It isn't enough to prevent me from getting hired...that's good.  It was a credit card that my ex-husband and I had.  It was actually something he was supposed to take care of after the divorce.  It wasn't.  We have been divorced a long time.)  Apparently the company sold it to a collection agency in December 2006.  I am going to have to pay that debt back.  It is partially mine, so I can't complain that much.

Still my big worry is the drug screen.  Everyone around me is telling me I'm fretting for nothing.  I never smoked that much. is Wednesday.  I hope to find out by Friday.  I just want to know...positive or negative.

Drug screen by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #1 Wed Jan 24, 2007 at 08:27:14 AM EST
Depending on how serious they are, and thus how much they are willing to pay for quality lab work, you could be clear if you smoked nothing in the past week, or busted if you smoked once in the past 30 days.

Also depending on how much you smoked at that time, how strong it was, etc.

(We can strip mine the rest later.)

There are so many variables.  I've been looking on line.  They said that it can be in one's system from three to about ninety days.  Myself.  I smoked about a small joints worth in two days.  I haven't had any since then.  That was before Christmas and I took the pee test on January 18. I'm an overweight individual.  (I've read that THC stores in fat.)  I'm trying not to worry about it too much.

it might be a good idea to take some grapefruit seed extract regularly as soon as you know there may be a drug test involved. clear you right out.

but as a bystander with no professional knowledge whatsoever, I'd say you'll be fine.

Great Idea! by Sapphire (2.00 / 0) #4 Wed Jan 24, 2007 at 03:24:37 PM EST
Thank you!  I will keep that in mind, and some on hand!  Although, applying for this job was a spur of the moment thing.  I didn't expect it to happen as quickly as it did.  I didn't expect to get offered a job on the day of my interview.  (Job offer with strings attached.)
