    Default How long does it take an employer to get drug test results?

    Okay, I'm not asking how long it takes for the results to be prodcued, but rather how long it takes the employer to get the results. I took a test for a pharmacy job June 17th, I got a call on June 23rd from the Medical Review Officer stating that methadone had come up in my urine and if there is any reason for it to be there. I am on an MMT program and immediately after getting off the phone with him, my clinic faxed over a great letter stating everything needed to prove I am scritped it, this was very early in the morning when faxed over. I called the employer friday evening to ask if there was anything else I needed to do before starting and they stated "Nope, we're just still waiting on your test results, your background is clear but we haven't gotten the test results from the lab, but as soon as we do, and they're clear, we'll start you immediately. I'll have _____ check tonight to see if the results are in and call you." So that was a nice relief...except for the fact that the results are not in the computer and I never got a call back that night. There is no way for them to know I am on MMT, so that's not an issue and I know for fact that they want me to work there, I was offered the job on spot in a 10 minute interview pending my results/background check and within 7 days of putting in my application they contacted me asking if I could come in immediately for an interview. So now I'm just wondering why the results aren't getting published in the database? I called the MRO's office and they stated to call back on Monday...

    Why would it take so long to get the results when the MRO has already contacted me and my prescription information was already received by the MRO that same day, 15 minutes after getting off the phone with him? I know they just plug the results in the database and the employer logs in to see them. Any suggestions as to why?

    Shoot, the suspense on waiting for the employer to get the results which are clean, is worse than waiting for the drug test results in general. I wanna start work!

    Thanks man! Didn't run into you today but I came very early, that's probably why. Hope all is well on your side.

    I will work in the medical field one day and this is a great opening to start in that direction. I'm very lucky to land a pharmacy job.

    Yea that's what I'm thinking...someone is not doing their job right or on time. The company says it takes 1 to 2 days max to get results...so I don't know why mine are taking so long. I understand that at first my test came up positive for methadone..so in turn they had to do GC/MS, resulting in my test taking longer to get back, but the day after giving the MRO my script info, the results should have been published. I hope by monday I get a call
