Does Comcast Drug Test? (& How To Pass It Safely)

Thinking about interviewing for a job at Comcast? Here’s what you need to know about their drug testing policies for new hires and employees.


Does Comcast Require a Pre-employment Drug Test?

We could not find Comcast’s drug testing policy online, but reports from current and former employees indicate that the company requires a pre-employment drug test.

The test comes after several rounds of interviews and after you’ve received a conditional job offer.

Comcast will give you their drug testing policy and ask you to agree to the test.

Similar to most companies, declining to take the test leads to an automatic withdrawal of the job offer. You may also be asked to wait several months before re-applying.


Does Comcast Conduct Employment Drug Testing?

Comcast has a strict drug-free workplace policy. Most locations carry out random drug tests. Employees in safety-sensitive positions may be required to undertake scheduled drug tests.

A drug test may also be required if you are suspected to be on drugs and after a workplace incident.


What Drugs do Comcast Test For?

Comcast uses a basic 5-test panel that tests for opiates, cocaine, THC, PCP, and Methamphetamines.


Which Type of Drug Test Does Comcast Use?

Comcast urine drug test

Comcast requires prospective hires and employees to take a urine drug test. You’ll be sent to a nearby laboratory, usually LabCorp or Quest, where you’ll provide a urine sample.

They’ll check the sample for authenticity (temperature, chemical makeup, color, etc.) and then test it against a 5-drug panel.

We’ve not seen any reports of blood or hair follicle testing.


How to Pass a Comcast Drug Test?

Urine tests are generally easy to pass, especially if you have time. If you know you are going in for an interview in a few weeks, stop using weed and other drugs.

Your body will naturally detox.

If you have just a week or two, you can speed the process by drinking a lot of water, exercising regularly, and eating a high-fiber diet.

If you are a heavy user, use detox pills such as Toxin Rid to speed up detox.

If you have just a day or two, the best options are synthetic urine (though it’s risky) or a detox drink.
