Does Walmart Drug Test

PUBLISHED: Thursday, April 23, 2020

Walmart Inc. (Walmart) is a global retailer that serves 256 million customers every week in its 11,500 retail stores and e-commerce websites in the US, Canada, and other countries. As of January 31, 2020, Walmart and its subsidiaries have more than 2.2 million employees; 1.5 million of these associates are in the US.

In March, Walmart announced its intent to hire 150,000 associates for its distribution and fulfillment centers. One can expect the competition for such opportunities (a 2013 report said the company received 23,000 applications for 600 positions) to be tough, especially during these times.

Do you want to work at Walmart? Here is crucial information about the company’s hiring and drug-testing policies. 

Does Walmart Drug Test Employees?

According to its Statement of Ethics, Walmart is an alcohol and drug-free workplace. The company may ask you to take a drug test based on these circumstances. 

Pre-employment Drug Testing

Candidates who apply for hourly roles don’t have to undergo drug testing during the initial stages of their application. If they receive an offer of employment after the interview, they will be required to complete their pre-employment checks that may include a drug test.

Post-offer Hiring or Promotion Drug Testing

Applicants may have to undergo drug testing as part of their postoffer hiring requirements. The same goes for those slated for promotion into management; a drug test may be a prior condition for accepting the promotion.

Post-accident Drug Testing

Employees may be subjected to drug testing after the occurrence of specific on-the-job injuries.

Reasonable-Cause Drug Testing 

Employees may be asked to take a drug test if suspected under reasonable cause to be under the influence of drugs.  

The Answer 

Walmart will not hire or promote one who tests positive on their drug test.  The company may also terminate their employment or withdraw the job offer for that matter.
