If you use cash in your workplace, it is important that you know who you are dealing with. If you are dealing with someone who is clearly not on the same page as you, it can be difficult to understand what is going on. CVS may not be the best place to test cashiers, but you should know.
CVS is a drug testing company. They test cashiers who are on their payroll, but they do not test those whom they hire.
I know, I know: Cashiers need to be treated with respect. But if you are dealing with someone who doesn’t understand where the money is coming from, then you are in for a long day. On top of that, most CVS drug tests are conducted in the bathrooms, which is not a good idea at all since that area is often poorly lit and, more likely than not, not disinfected.
Cashiers are a vulnerable population that can be targeted by criminals. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen cashiers get shot in the head, and more times than I can count, I’ve seen cashiers get robbed. So the drug testing is a big deal. If you do it properly, you can avoid getting in trouble, but the consequences can be severe. Just remember, the drug test is just a test. You can still be arrested if you don’t pass it.
You may be wondering why this is important. Well, the cashier is the one who pays for all the cash, so if she tests positive that means she has money that belongs to the store. The store manager is the one who pays the cops to arrest the wrong person. So if the test comes back positive, it means that the cashier is guilty of stealing.
You could be right in thinking that a cashier would be a little more likely to be arrested for having taken out cash than for not having taken it. However, it is important to consider the facts. If the cashier is going to be arrested for being involved in a crime, it is going to be a long time before she gets to see the money. If she is, the only people she can see are the cashiers.
There are several reasons to believe that CVS drug tests cashiers in the United States. First, they are paid to have this job. If a drug test comes back positive, they will not want to stay on the job long enough to miss a paycheck. So the more they are paid, the longer they are on the job. Thus, they will be more likely to test positive.
One study has found that drug tests on the cashier have a positive correlation with the amount of money the cashier has on hand. So if you have $50 in your drawer, and you have another $50 on your person, you can assume a drug test would come back positive, and you will likely not be able to pay for the next few weeks.
The answer to your question is no, but I think this is a pretty good indication of how much the cashiers themselves want to pay for the time they have at work. I know they say things like “give me a week,” but they’re obviously just trying to make sure they get a week or two into their lives. Or they wouldn’t get a week or two into their lives if they were to work at that level.
This is one of the more common drug tests run by cashiers, which the FDA’s drug testing lab in Minneapolis has a contract with. In their recent test, one cashier said she paid $10 for the time she had at work, only to find she was back up to $100 on the same day.
