Do you have any insight as to if they would actually ever rescind an offer for light marijuana use?

Not sure tbh, I just know my buddy stopped smoking and doing any drugs 6 months prior to his test

suitup23, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Would it be such a bad thing to tell them that you took an edible and will fail the test up front ? People chime in on this one but I feel like being honest about it and showing that you a really care about working there wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. Are you incoming FT?

Yeah, it doesn't so I think I'm fine. Was just looking to see if anyone had any specific insight.

If you've smoked weed, even once, in the past year, you can NOT fucking work at Lincoln International

Hair test is so crazy wow. I had a pretty intense drug test when interning at a F500 Tools & Dx company but even then they didn't do that. To be clear, I found out about this drug test while taking a bong rip during summer school while holding my waiter job at one of the local restaurants. As a non-stoner I was pretty miffed that I had to deal with this shit the one time I smoked bud but it somehow worked out even as quest diagnostics checked that I didn't have a fake penis on me.

Do you know how many panels the drug test was? Like did they test for benzos?I took one for a flight to Europe and then one for the flight back and I have the hair test coming up soon.

Believe so but they don't care about THC/ weed as a poster mentioned above. Looking for harder drugs

They send out testing instructions after the offer and you just need to get it done by the start date. I had done maybe 10 lines in total on separate occasions 2-3 months before my test and was cleared. That's what they're after.

because of how extensive that timeline is I'm not exactly sure. Recruiting is way too early these days.
