I applied for a job at a local grocery store (Publix) and was offered a very good position. They need a few people, and because of my past years of experience, are starting me off exceptionally. I've been hired, quoted a starting rate, they copied my DL and Social Security info. They were in a big hurry to hire me and apparently just lost a few people. My interview was on May 23rd, and I was hired on the spot and given a new mouth swab test. You put it between your cheek and gum and let it sit there and soak up saliva for about a minute. It gets broken off, put into a tube and sent off to LabCorp. I haven't heard back, and it's Saturday the 28th. Why is this test taking so long to get the results back? I'm not worried about it - I've never used drugs in my life. I'm just wondering how long these usually take. It was sent off on Monday afternoon probably around 5pm. What's the typical time for these to come back?
