Ok, so a really quick and random question. Are drug tests used when hiring summer analysts?
Wall Street Drug Test
When preparing to go through the recruitment process with a bank you should be prepared to take a drug test. A bank has the right to drug test for employment. If you are drug tested it will most likely be a urine test. Below is a list of major banks that have conducted drug tests. A test would be part of a pre-employment screen. These tests will most likely be conducted by a nurse practitioner or doctor. This person may or not be present when you are providing the sample.
Notable Investment Banks That Drug Tests
- Citi Bank
- Deutsche Bank
- Goldman Sachs
- JP Morgan
- Morgan Stanley
- Wells Fargo
- RBC Capital Markets
This list is by no means all-inclusive. There is a searchable database that you can access here. You can simply search for the bank or firm interest. The best way to avoid any issues with testing is practicing self-control at least a month prior to the beginning of the recruiting process.
