Refused Drug Test

Hey guys, at my previous job I had to quit because I was randomly chosen to be drug tested. I had bought a fake piss kit but the lady testing did not accept my sample. I refused to take the test and let her know that I'd be going to HR and quitting, which I ultimately did.

It's been 5 months since and I've been trying to get hired at different places but no such luck. My question is, is that refused test showing up on my background check? I have lied on my applications stating that I left my job because I was no longer interested working there. Is this coming back to bite me in the ass? Should I be honest from here on out?

Kek America and your drug tests. Move to a non 3rd world country anon

No, it's not coming up in interviews. If they ask more than, "Did X work at your place from Y to Z?" and, "Would you rehire this person?" they are breaking the law, as is anyone who volunteers more than this.

That said, your old employer could answer, "No, they could be the last person on earth, and I still wouldn't rehire them," and be in the clear.

The real solution is to not do shit that puts your job at risk.

>>18600176
Thank you for your response. I suppose I haven't been getting hired for whatever reason.
>>
>>18600176
Only exception to this is if you put someone who knows about it as a reference. People are limited what they can ask to previous employers, actual references are open season, though. You can ask them anything, and they can volunteer anything.

Of course, you get to hand pick who you put as a reference, so there's no real excuse.

>have been unemployed for 5 months since
This is a big red flag to employers. It tells them you act impulsively and your first response when you come across a difficulty is to jump ship.
>>
>>18600211
Yeah. Leaving your job because you aren't interested in working there, without having a new job lined up, is a HUGE red flag.

>I had bought a fake piss kit but the lady testing did not accept my sample. I refused to take the test
You refused to take it even though you gave a sample? Why did she deny the sample?
>>
>>18600211
So would it be ok if OP lied and said he worked at the last place up until last week, and left because they would not offer him time off after some close relative passed away? (Feel free to advise an alternative lie)
>>
>>18600247
Inb4 you're accusing your old employer of breaking a law. I wouldn't recommend it.
>>
>>18600247
Maybe, though a) the validity of that excuse depends on what the laws are where OP lives and b) it still points to OP jumping ship whenever the going gets tough.

Honestly, the only good excuses for an employment gap are if the work was temporary/fixed-term, upskilling, having to look after your kids or for health reasons. OP COULD say he worked there up until last week, but that's easy enough for the employer to check, and he'd have to find a good reason for wanting to leave.

>>18600247
It is entirely ok for a potential employer to ask what dates anon worked to and from. Lying about your employment dates is asking to be caught.
>>
>>18600144
>being honest
Let's face it. You're a degenerate druggie and you're never going to face that fact. Your version of "being honest" is what? We all know you're not going to tell anyone you left because you tried to fake a drug test but it failed so you bailed. Give up and accept your life as a druggie.

I'd rather hijack this thread than make my own, so I apologize.

Do any of you have any knowledge of lies that work on resumes in the US?

Like if I lied about maybe education, would they be able to actually check that, or would my aptitude be the proof?
>>
>>18600293
Why don't you tell us your situation and we can go from there? Also it seems like OP's abandoned this thread like he abandoned his job so don't feel bad for hijacking.
>>
>>18600297
It's mostly curiosity. I worked at retail (high turnover rate) for 4 weeks (stable pay for training, full commission after, was not doing that)
I've been unemployed now for 3 months, but my plan is to just find another high turnover rate job (this time tech support)

So, down the line I might want to slip in a lie for good measure, but probably won't
I'll probably actually get my CCNA and etc. certs, moving up that way
>>
>>18600308
I forgot to mention, I'll probably lie and just say I've never been employed. The last place hired me I believe because I was inexperienced and gunning for a Technician job, promising to finish my CCNA and try to go for that job... but in truth I was probably only hired because I looked fit enough to lift shit and had the charisma to sell shit (made top sales my 2nd week there, kek) + high turnover rate

>I forgot to mention, I'll probably lie and just say I've never been employed.
That's probably the best course of action for you. Anything less than 6 months-a year will make employers think twice about hiring you, might it'll hurt you more than it'll help if you leave it on your resume.
>>
>>18600144
Maybe don't work in a field that treats you like shit with drug testing?
>>
Lie about your employment gap. Unless its a white collar job they are absolutely not gonna check. Believe me. I've been lying my ass off about my employment history, fabricated years of experience, lied about employment gaps, lied about all the times I got fired. No one checks.
>>
>>18600144
Maybe you should stop doing drugs, you junkie, degenerate, socialist wreck of a human being.
No one is obligated to do you any favors, and I'm sure as shit not going to give you a job if you're on drugs.
