Last friday (about 10 days ago) I had a job interview at Best Buy, and I was told I would get the job, but had to take a drug test. It's great for me, being in college.

I took the test the same day, and I still haven't heard anything back. They definitely offered me the job, offering a salary and the manager actually said "welcome to the team," to me as I was leaving, but they haven't got back to me.

I'm 100% sure I didn't fail the drug test. My question is if this normally takes as long as it seems to have taken.

If you happen to stumble upon this, I DID pass, and I do have the job. It took about 10 days or so, and calling them worked.

Nah, I'm not saying I'm worried that I failed, I'm just wondering if you guys think there's possibly another thing I should suspect is the reasoning?

They're probably just busy, but I just figure I'm missing something.

I'd give them a call to check in. It can't hurt, and shows you want the job

yeah was weird cause she liked us both but she loved him and for some reason she let me know beforehand.

i just wanted her poon and she wanted me to have her poon.

so i had myself some poon.

They don't want you anymore. You can't let them win though. Show up and kill them all V-Tech style. Make them regret their decision, TS.

Something very similar happened to me, I was offered a position at a local Best Buy on a wednesday if I could pass the drug test. they told me I had 48 hours and that the orientation would be on friday, so i got some piss from a friend and went and took the drug test before the orientation on friday. The labcorp employee checked off the right temperature box on my form so I knew that I passed it. So later I went to orientation and found out that I hadn't been 'processed' yet, so i couldn't get my employee number. Well a week or more went by without me being 'processed'. But I worked the whole time and my manager even sent a check to me in the mail. People even made drug test jokes because I hadn't been 'processed'. After about a week i was finally processed and got my numbers and everything. Only to quit three months later for a lot of reasons.

They won't let you know when it's in if it comes back negative.

This ^^

The test shouldn't have taken that long. Giving them a call will show initive, but I'd avoid asking about the drug test.

Call to thank them for giving you this oppurtunity and ask if there was anything else they needed from you because you have not heard back from them and you weren't given a date to report for work.

Then they'll break the news to you that you're pregnant, with triplets. Good luck with that.

Seriously, what I said about calling back should do it.

Don't work at Best Buy. They say to come in for an interview, then they leave you high and dry

Sometimes it can take up to two weeks for the results if they are busy enough. Don't sweat it. I've heard working at best buy is horrible though.
