  • I was picked for drug testing last month and my name came up again this month, I feel like I am being targeted, what's up?
    You're lucky number keeps coming up, maybe you should enter the lottery! This question comes up a lot. What happens is this: Your name is in the pool with everyone else for drug testing. When your name is selected, you are tested. Your name remains in the pool for testing. Each time names are selected, you have the same chance for being selected for testing, regardless if you were tested last month, or never tested. The names are randomly selected by the contractor, no City of Mobile employee has any influence over who is selected.
