What would you do if a company asked you to drive two hours away to pick up a drug screen form?

This is not even knowing if they are going to offer you the job yet. They called to ask if I could come up and pick up a drug screen form from them because they are at a different location. It's a two hour drive.

  • I'd explain that you are currently 2 hours away, and you are very willing to complete the form, but wonder if they would fax/email it to you and you'd send it back. If they aren't willing to cooperate, it's only 2 hours, so I'd go if I was interested in the job.

  • Do they have a form online that you could download? I hope the job is closer than two hours away. Do they realize you are 2 hours away? Maybe they could mail it to you. Or they could fax it to an office supply store. You would have to be there, of course.

  • Ask them to scan and email the form to you

  • do it. jobs are at a premium right now..... they would likely not go thru the trouble and expense of drug testing you if u weren't a viable candidate.

  • If they can't send it to you I would make sure they knew how far away you are but i would go. I think. lol Is it a great job? Good benefits? If its just a min wage job I don't know if I would drive that far for it. Good luck either way

  • I'd be careful asking them for favors so early on. Unless you're in a rare area where the economy is still decent, there's probably a dozen or more people who'd be so happy for the job prospect they'd drive 4 hours or crawl thru broken glass to get a chance.
