On March 15th I have an interview with the manager and assistant manager in this restaurant in Aria resort and casino, after 2 days of the interview I got an email asked me for a pre-employment drug test within 48 hours so I did, and its very nice of whoever call me from MGM reminds me I should having the drug test for the next 2 days in case I didn't receive the email and this coming wednesday would be 2 weeks since the drug test and Im just wondering chances I will(which I hope)get hire and how long does it really take to get respond? does anyone experience this before? Im so anxious and impatient

Alex, worry less about that drug test and work on your written and maybe even your verbal communication skills.

Your posts ought to be carefully edited for grammar, etc. prior to posting.

If you don't get a call back it probably won't be because you did not pass the drug test (unless you come up 'dirty').


Conversely-

Drug tests are relatively expensive and are not generally run unless the HA feels strongly about hiring you. That they ran a drug test suggests to me they have an interest in you so, instead of waiting and fretting....

.....why don't you call them back?

Two weeks is generally enough time to have run a drug test UNLESS they are batching them in which case they will, presumably, call you once they have run tests on all the candidates seriously being considered for hire.

In the meantime, pick up the phone and call them.



Bon Chance,


Paul

Okay, I got it- English is not your first language; that explains it but does not obviate the need to improve.

America is in many ways a prejudiced nation (like others, I guess).

When you are in your Community it may not seem to matter but as you progress it is generally considered imperative one has superlative communications skills or you will be shouldered aside.

Now, if you are going to be a Tool & Die Maker this is not as important but in the 'professions', it is a must.


And yes, picking up the telephone is the only realistic way to get yourself noticed. Aside from an effectively written resume.


Good Luck.



Paul

Thank you, Alex.

Also, after I read your post again I think I might add, respectfully, that you work towards keeping 'an even keel' so you do not feel extreme high's and low's during these situations.

Know you may be repeating this entire exercise again and again until you get hired so take on some kind of personal way of being that allows you to stay somewhere in emotional-neutral, knowing you [may] have a long road to travel before your next hire.

One more point that is important to consider:

Since it is possible you may not get an Offer of Employment it stands to reason you ought to keep sending out resumes/applications in the meantime as often as you can.

Stay busy looking for more job leads and taking the time to send out your resume/fill out applications.

This is called 'backing your bet' so don't sit and just hope and worry, take positive action by watching out for yourself by continuing to work on your job search in the meantime.

That way, no one lead becomes an 'all or nothing' possibility since you will have other/more 'irons in the fire'.

Keep the wheel turning, Alex!


Thank You,


Paul

I realize that this is really old but I'm curious to find out if you ever heard back from them? If so how long did you wait? What was next?
