Much closer to the start date. Call it roughly 1 month ahead. Don't be morons and "time" stuff.

If you're worried about pot it can stay in your system for up to 90 days. If you really want the job it'd be wise not to do anymore.

You've secured an offer; don't fuck it up, even if the chance of them catching you is 0.0001%. Or switch to hard drugs, they leave your system in less than a week =0

You'll have to submit a drug test within 30days of starting. If you're "out of the country" during this time frame, then you have to take one during the first week up in nyc

In case you're curious (I was), their drug test is just urine.

But in all honesty, if you are going to make it on the Street you're going to need to kick marijuana (if that's what it is). It does not mesh with the lifestyle.

Tell that to Jimmy Cayne

@Snickers

Are you really suggesting anyone should aspire to be jimmy cayne? The same Cayne who ran BS into the ground, lost 95% of his wealth, and is widely considered one of the worst CEOs of all time...?

Hope you're being sarcastic.

...not sure of this is sarcastic...many very successful people on wall st smoke weed. I also wouldnt worry about the drug test...there are commercially available masking agents and i have literally never heard of someone losing a job due to testing positive for marijuana which leads me to believe that they really dont care. So take precautions but i would bet that they afrent even really checking.

It is much better smoking a joint form time to time than being addicted to LEGAL prescription drugs (like so many in the U.S have become) peddled by doctors getting kickbacks from pharma corps. It is amazing that in this day and age so many people are still up in arms and judgmental about something as innocuous as cannabis when there are so many much worse drugs circulating through the legal channels.

Happy 420 everyone.

And que the stoners overreaction to someone questioning the magnificent perfection and opulence of THC.

I didn't judge anyone who does cannibis, but I also can't see how you could genuinely advise a young person about to go through a critical, at times arbitrary, and frequently brutal 10 week selection process that having a marijuana *habit* is a good idea. I wasn't speaking about smoking a joint every once in a while. And I would categorically advise against any drug habit while working in the highly competitive environment of Wall Street as a junior employee.

Or you could just not do coke. It is terrible for you and you will not be as functional as you think you will be. Just abstain from drugs in general so you don't OD.

Doing too much of anything ain't good. A joint's not bad once in a while ;)

Maybe try not doing drugs

May 1, 2015

Agreed. I did it once for my last spring break. if it is Urine it won't be a problem because I'm not a smoker but if its hair i heard it goes back 3 months and can detect it even if it was a small amount.

May 8, 2015

May 8, 2015

What's with all these Citi drug test topics?

Where are they holding their OCR?

Apr 25, 2016

Can confirm that you can take the drug test basically up until the week before you start for Citi. Some banks have earlier deadlines but I know that Citi's can be done very last minute, it just has to be in and processed before you start - the official deadline is probably earlier, but a lot of people don't have testing centers near them at university and have to wait until they get home to do it, just be communicative with HR. It's a 5 panel urine test, so it'll check for THC/marijuana, opiates, amphetamines, methamphetamines and phencyclidine (PCP/other hallucinogens). So everything college students use recreationally except for like, benzos. Study drugs that aren't prescribed to you will show up under amphetamines so be careful if you use those. Stop smoking ASAP to be absolutely positive it's out of your system, that varies a lot from person to person and your usage, and give any stimulants at least a week (preferably two, let's be real, you don't wanna be the one outlier) to flush out even though they're notorious for being out in 2-3 days.

Does anyone know when the Citi drug test takes place, as HR has not reached out to me?

Very likely in June, close to the start of your internship. You're supposed to schedule it yourself. Also, check your offer letter, sometimes details about when the drug test is/needs to be completed by are in there.
