Pre-employment drug screening
Hey guys just need some feedback from the more experienced people on here. Would steroids be tested for on a basic pre-employment drug screening? Or just the recreational drugs like coke, meth, marijuana,etc.? And if anyone could speak more specifically about federal government urinalysis. Thanks guys.

im not a veteran or doctor but im pretty sure that they could tell if you were on gear or not. drugs are drugs to them. im almost positive that anything from tobacco, alcohol, painkillers, gear, weed, coke, meth, h or anything thats not normally in your body will show up.

I am in the union and get tested b4 every new job. I have been tested by many contractors. No, they dont test for aas. Most are simple 5 panel drug tests which test for "party drugs". You are fine 100%

I have worked for the government both as an active duty member and as a civilian contractor. I had a good friend who worked in the area of medical that handled urinalysis. At the time, a basic urinalysis only looked for recreational type drugs (pot, speed, coke, etc...). He did say that a test could be ordered if a military member were suspected to be on the gear, but it was rare and definitely out of the norm. Things may have changed, though. I have been out almost 10 years now.

what about someone wanting to join the military? or law enforcement. my buddy has never done any 'illegal drugs' but really wants to cycle some gear before joining either the AF or becoming a cop
but he is afraid of the testing they do showing he is on cycle,or has done gear ????
