No, Dick's Sporting Goods does not drug test unless it suspects an employee is under the influence while at work. In this case, the company has the right to ask the employee to take a drug test.
From our research, we found that the majority of current or former employees were not required to submit to a pre-screening drug test prior to onboarding. There are a handful of reports from Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan that mentioned having to take a pre-screening drug test, but most applicants did not report taking one.
If required to submit a drug test, Dick's uses a mouth-swab or urine test done at a third-party testing center. The test looks for cannabis, amphetamines, cocaine, heroin, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and other substances.
Even if you live in a state where recreational cannabis is legal, you may be terminated if you appear to be intoxicated at work and cannabis is found in your system.
The use of tobacco or vaping products is prohibited unless done outside in a designated area during an approved break time.
No, Dick's Sporting Goods does not hire felons. From our research, we have found little to no evidence of Dicks Sporting Goods hiring felons. This may be, in part, because it sells firearms.
