I had a job interview in another state last week. I arrived there on Wednesday and had the actual interview on Thursday (03/06) morning. I got caught off guard that day and they sent me to a clinic for a drug test. I am a heavy smoker and quit 10 days before that date. I went into the clinic really paranoid and had to give a urine sample. They sent me to the bathroom and told me to fill the cup. I peed midstream and failed to fill the 45 mL, so when I went out I asked the nurse if it was enough. She told me no, so I had to drink water and wait until I had to pee. 15 minutes later, I went in again and peed just enough (the 2nd half of my stream) to fill the cup. Keep in mind this was the third pee of my day.
So I am worried whether I passed or not. I took a home test later that day and tested negative with the test line being very faded. I took another home test on Saturday morning to check my 2nd half of the pee and although I could see the line very very little, I think it came out positive.
The employer told me that it is not unprecedented for the first test to give wrong results and if it does come back positive they would make me re-test in a facility in my hometown. That made me feel better (because I would have time to figure something out) but it also made me feel nervous because WHY would he say that to me? I assured him that they would have no problems with my test results.
It is now Tuesday and I haven't heard anything from the clinic or the employer about the drug test. I made a really good impression and I accepted their offer (pending the background check and the drug test results). SOO, here are my questions and concerns:
Do you think there is some chance I could have passed the lab test?
How long does it take for the results to arrive? Has it been enough time to assume that I passed it? Lab is MedTox. Is there any way to track it?
If I DIDN'T pass it, would they have called me already? Or would they have let the employer know?
If I am to re-test, I bought the QuickFix 4.0 which has excellent reviews from everybody, so I am planning to use it for the retake. I've read many many posts verifying it works, but I would like to hear it again from people that have actually passed a laboratory test (not the tablet). I read an article online that states that labs CAN tell the difference from real urine here: testclear.com
Sorry for long post. I am just another pothead who loves weed and thinks it should be legalized. I've smoked for my whole university career and got very good grades, so I am very pro weed.
