Does Randstad Drug Test?
Randstad is a Dutch human resources firm, which has a strong presence in the USA. So it employs a lot of people, and a lot of people going for jobs there need to know the answer to the question: does Randstad drug test?
So let’s take a look in detail at the Randstad hiring process, what their drug testing policy is, and also, explain if Randstad ever drug test on the spot.
Then I will go through the exact methods you can use to get around a Randstad drug test every single time.
The Randstad Hiring Process Explained
The procedure is that you will register with Randstad. You will then be interviewed for positions you want to apply for, or they recommend to you.
Sometimes you will be given the job on the spot, sometimes you will then be passed on to a representative from the company Randstad are employing for, for a last interview.
At the end of the interview process, you will be background checked and drug tested.
Also, when you register with Randstad and want to apply for a position, you will often go through what they call a “pre-screening” interview. After that interview, you will be recommended (or not) for an interview by the employer themselves.
When Does Randstad Drug Test Employees?
So as you can see, because Randstad acts as an intermediary, and a filter at the start the process, it’s not always clear exactly when a Randstad drug test could take place.
On top of that, it might be Randstad to commission a drug test, or it might be the employer themselves. In a couple of examples I read online, people have submitted a urine sample both to Randstad during the filtering process, and then to the employer directly after the interview.
The bottom line here is that if you want to get a job, called an assignment, through Randstad, then from the first time you meet a Randstad representative, right through the interview process, and orientation, you could have to take a drug test.
What Type Of Drug tests Do Randstad Do?
Randstad primarily use urine drug testing. But in some locations mouth swab drug tests have also been reported.
On top of that, you have to understand that whatever type Randstad do, the company you are being set up with have their own drug testing policies, and own locations and methods.
Which means you could face everything from mouth swab, to a urine drug test, and (although it’s incredibly unlikely) even through to a hair follicle test.
Importantly, the answer to the question: does Randstad drug test on the spot is, yes you could have to submit the sample right there during or after the interview.
How To Pass A Randstad Drug Test
But don’t panic. The important thing to remember here is that it doesn’t matter what sort of drug test you are facing, there are ways around it.
Overwhelmingly, hundreds of people online who have got through the Randstad hiring process report that they were subjected to urine and mouth swab drug test.
When it comes to passing either of those sort of Randstad drug tests, you have the following options:
Use synthetic urine
This is definitely the best way to pass an unsupervised Randstad urine drug test.
On top of that, they are easy to heat up to the correct temperature, with Sub Solution being the easiest because it uses a heat activator powder, rather than a heat pad.
The only problem is being brave enough to carry a sample of synthetic urine with you, and submitting it.
But we know that Randstad pre-employment urine drug testing is unobserved, so you have to go behind the screen, or into a toilet to submit it. Which means there is plenty of opportunity to submit a fake sample.

Use a high-quality detox drink
A detox drink doesn’t actually detox you. What it does is to flush out the toxins in your bladder and urinary tract. At the same time it maintain the balance and nutrients, so that your urine tests as a non-diluted, natural sample.

All you have to do is to drink it a couple of hours before you leave, urinate frequently, and you will then have a window of opportunity of around three or four hours in which to submit a clean sample, before toxins start creeping back into your bladder.
