I apologize for asking this question, as I realize it's likely been answered ad nauseum on this forum, but I did want a few extra opinions. I'm a recent hire at Target. I was interviewed yesterday for a cashier position and offered the job on the spot by HR at a starting wage of $8.25. I took the drug test immediately afterward. I don't do any drugs but I did have a bagel full of poppy seeds that morning, which worries me a lot now that I've discovered this can lead to a false positive on the test. I have anxiety so this bothers me greatly. Supposing I failed the test, would I get any sort of callback? If I passed the test, when should I expect HR to call for orientation?

Thanks in advance. :)

They may be waiting to get a couple more people or more hours for training.
Like HLM said give them a call.

Welcome to The Break Room.

It's only been a day, though. Wouldn't it be too early to call? Shouldn't I give it like a week?

Drug tests now are way more sophisticated than that...one bagel with poppy seeds isn't going to produce a false positive anymore. That said, it will be a couple of days before Spot gets the results and then they have to schedule orientation which could be in a couple of days to a couple of weeks.

Welcome aboard!

Drug test results can take 3-5 business days. Wait a week

The lady at the test center told me 48 hours at most.

The test center may get them in 48 hours. Your store probably wont get the results until 3-5 business days. So if you went yesterday then call on friday morning or on Monday. My call back was definitely at the end of the estimate.

I believe Target is legally required to inform you of a failed test. I also believe you have the option to claim a false positive and take a second test at your expense.
Edit: looks like regulation varies by state. Couldn't find anything about the 2nd test. I swear I read that somewhere at spot... Anyway you won't have to worry about that. I got my call after 3 or 4 days.

I got my orientation e-mail (the one I was told to ignore, but still pretty good news) this morning.

Thanks for the responses, everyone. I'm looking forward to being a part of this forum.

I was interviewed twice on 5/15 at target and was offered a job. I did the drug test early the next morning and was told to ignore an email about orientation instead I would receive a call about it. It is now 5/31 and still have not received a call. I called last week and was told that all my paperwork was fine to just wait for the call. I was wondering if this was normal or did they just not decide not hire me?
