    After reading the responses, especially El Guapo's, I did a bit of Googling around.

    I am now convinced that you can find out about anything on the Internet. This information might come in handy before your next drip test, if you want to have fun with the Urinazis.

    The classic piss test was a requirement of my previous city job. Only one test was required.

    New approach to the drug test...

    I've taken the 'ol urinalysis test when I was hired by HP in my previous life. During a recession it seems these things really pick up in popularity by employers. In the boom-boom 90s, some employers in the Bay area stopped doing them as qualified talent was so scarce...I think the pendulum has swung the other direction now.

    I do have a friend who works for a large "NAtional BISCuit COmpany" and he told me that they now take hair samples instead of the urine test. Less invasive, and more telling of the persons history (longer hair=longer history).

    Nice.

    1st job - Gov't - Pee test
    2nd job - Consulting - Nothing
    3rd Job - Gov't - Full physical (including vision, hearing, and heart rate after 30 seconds of jumping jacks - WTF?)

    no random drug testing though.

    I didn't get these last 7 tests, but how long before they start requiring this stuff (Health Insurance Requirement in the Future?)

    Iíve had to take a few of them through jobs in college, and military physicals when I was going to join. My least favorite was the military urinalysis. They gave me a cup, and told me to stand sideways so the medical tech. could see the sample flow from me and into the cup He mentioned me people have been known to carry clean samples and run a tube from the container and tape it to their member in order for it to look and sound like peeing.
