Amazon usually sends you an email 5 – 7 days if you failed the drug test or if the results came back inconclusive.
Drug tests on Amazon can take anywhere from one to two weeks. Some Amazon employees said that their test results arrived within 24 hours of the swab being performed. Some claim they received an email from Amazon after waiting two weeks.
Negative findings are normally available within 24 hours; however, a non-negative screen will necessitate additional testing, which could take anywhere from a few days to a week. If the initial screening is negative, the results are usually communicated to the employer by a medical review officer (MRO).
To detect the absence or presence of illicit substances and the abuse of prescribed pharmaceuticals, Amazon administers a 5-panel or 12-panel drug test to job seekers and employees.
The results of a workplace drug test normally arrive within a few days. An employer might even ask for a quick test, which can offer results the same day. Within 24 hours, employers obtain negative test results. Because of the additional testing required, non-negative results take longer.
Employees may have justifications for failing a drug test, such as eating too many poppy-seed bagels, picking up the wrong brownie at a party, or being caught in a car with someone smoking cannabis. They can argue that the test is flawed.
Job applicants who fail drug tests or do not have valid prescriptions will simply be told that they have failed and are no longer eligible for the position. After six months or a year, they may be permitted to reapply to the company.
The detection time for a mouth swab drug test is usually 5–48 hours. Drugs of abuse, on the other hand, can be identified in the blood for one to two days and in the urine for 1.5 to four days.
Hair samples are tested for substances in some 10-panel drug tests. When a hair sample is used, the drugs can be detected for up to 90 days. This means that after certain time periods have elapsed, the substance being tested may no longer be detectable.
When you fail a drug test at Amazon, your file is not kept because you are not offered a job. Similarly, your results will not be shared with another organization. This means you can work on yourself to get clean before applying to other companies or reapplying to Amazon.
Some tests are designed to detect specific types of drugs over others, however, the majority of saliva drug tests are designed to detect marijuana, cocaine, amphetamine, methamphetamine, and PCP. Additional indicators indicating other commonly abused drugs may be detected during your saliva drug test.
