I'd wear a pair of black dress pants or khakis with a nice shirt. I'd do hair down and cover the tattoos just to keep things professional. Some places don't care if yours show or not but I'd go with covering them to interview just in case. Then if you get the job I'd just ask what their policy is about showing tattoos. Idk about the drug testing. most places I've worked for had me go take the test right away but said i had like 24 hours if needed. the only place that tested me on the spot was Quest Diagnostics but they're a lab so that was understandable. Good luck!

I wore a sweater set, dress pants and appropriate heels. My hair was down. They asked about my goals, mainly. Typical questions. I didn't have to do a drug test that I can remember because I was already a hospital employee. My initial one with the hospital was not on the spot, though.

Dress professionally. Slacks/skirt or dress that falls right above or right below the knee, close toe flats or heels (no 4+ inch heels) and a blouse. Keep jewelry to a minimum, keep your make up light, keep your polish neutral. You can wear your hair up or down, doesn't matter as long as it looks neat. If you want to hide your tattoo, get some heavy duty concealer to cover it up. Walmart sells Glamoflauge and its only a couple of bucks.



They shouldn't drug test you until you are hired. The test they are giving could be anything, really. When I interviewed for my current job, I took a test that included a lot of algebra, geometry and biology.

Business casual. No open-toed shoes.



For any CNA/RN job I've ever had, they had me go for a physical and drug screen after they offered the position, not after the interview. It would be a waste of money to drug test everyone they interviewed. I'm assuming you asked because you know you won't pass?

Probably. It confuses me how job seekers use drugs knowing that 9/10, they will be drug tested if offered the position.

Especially when seeking a healthcare position.

Lol right? Drug testing in that case is a given.

They always test you after your hired. The test they're giving you now is probably a aptitude and math test. You'll have 24 hours probably to take the drug test
