Failed Pre-Employment Drug Test

Recommended Posts

I recently took a Pre-Employment Drug Test for the MTA Train Conductor position. My urine came back positive for Marijuana. Therefore I received a “Verified Positive” result. I have now received another letter in the mail with a list of Substance Abuse Programs. Does anyone know if I am already disqualified from being able to obtain the position or do I still have a chance of I complete the substance abuse program ?

Hey I’m in the same boat I’m waiting for the list of SAPs. Did you go through with the program ?

Yeah bro I’m in the process of beginning the progrom. I went to Ellyn Kravette & she costed $350 to meet with her. She referred me to another program & I have an appointment Friday at 1PM with the “Bridge back to life” program.

Hey bro did that 350 include the cost of the program too?

No, hopefully your health insurance covers it.

Which lady did you choose ? Basically after you complete the program you go to, you have to meet with that lady again & she’ll let the MTA know you’re fit to work. From there idk how long the MTA will take to get back at you....

On page 2 of 5 of the Notice of Examination (NOE) for MTA NYCT Conductor Exam No. 6601, the "Drug Screening Requirement" states that you must pass a drug screening in order to be eligible for appointment. That's it I'm afraid.
