Do any companies drug test their interns?

Specifically any of the Big 4...

If you have any information on that you could share, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

    I hope not...and I see no reason why they should
  • sefagosefago Posts: 1,707Registered User Senior Member

    they do, so STOP SMOKING WEED. I got drug tested twice before for two internships.

    Depends on the company, depends on the industry. My company is a Fortune 500 that sells cars and we test everyone. Everyone.

    "openingdoors that is how I act" sorry for showing my trueself. fag is an offensive word. Don't be silly and why does everyone keep calling me a kid.

    I had to get a drug test for my internship, though I'm not interning at a Big 4 they probably do too.

    So who knows for sure? I'm assuming they do, but looking nfor someone that for instance has interned at PWC or EY or something and got drug tested (or didn't).
  • DawgieDawgie Posts: 1,576Registered User Senior Member
    I interned at Deloitte, I didn't get tested. I don't believe any others in the Boston area did.

    Also sefago you are being called a kid because you are 18 and maybe other reasons too.

    for finance jobs both full time and summer internships, every investment bank requires a urine test. i dont think there are any hair tests though

    My D for her investment internship was drug tested, finger-printed and background checked.
  • CollegeKidCollegeKid Posts: 314Registered User Member
    Thanks.

    I assume though if you do audit that you might have to drug test for the companies you audit though?

    So, if it's in the finance sector, I'd guess you'd be drug tested.

    What about if you are in the other audit sector (basically everything but finance). I guess better safe than sorry (aka, don't do anything that'll show up on drug tests... like smoke weed, lol).

    Anyway, thanks for replies. Feel free to post anything else based on experience, more replies are still welcome.

    I worked in the research labs at a company that used some fairly dangerous chemicals and some dangerous machines, and I had to do a urine test the day I started. I actually wound up failing the opiates portion due to having a poppy seed bagel earlier that morning! Wound up having to get the test redone at a local hospital where things turned out fine.
