I applied for a job at Salesforce.com and was not asked to take a drug test, although there were several stages to the interview process and I wasn't pleased with the way the company represented itself nor with the hiring manager's attitude so I decided to drop out of the recruitment process at the 3rd stage.
My experience with the Salesforce.com interview went a bit like this:
- Submitted CV to be considered
- Received call from rude HR woman asking me questions about my job even though she had no technical understanding of my role.
- Very brief call with a "Technical Solution Architect" who wasn't too sure why he was involved in the recruitment process as I had already discussed my competencies in the first phone call.
- Had to drive over an hour to attend an interview, which was delayed by 15 minutes because we couldn't find a room to hold the meeting. I was rushed through as "they were recruiting like crazy" and it took them 2 weeks to get back to me about the next stage, by which time I had been offered a better position so I decided to decline Saleforce.com's offer.
At no point was I drug tested, however I should point out I didn't complete the interview process. There was no mention of drug testing from employees I spoke to, though they did warn me about the director of EMEA being very difficult in an interview situation.
