Brief Answer: Test list varies. If Steroid test, May be positive Detailed Answer: Hello, Usually steroid testing is not a part of Standard Pre- Employment test but is included in sports drug testing. It may include drug test for illicit drugs and stimulants like amphetamine. But it varies from state to state and country to country. If the steroid testing is included in your Pre- employment test, it may show positive for steroids. Because Testosterone Cypionate can be detected up to 3 months in urine. However Testosterone Cypionate is a natural hormone and low amount are detected in the urine of most males. However, when high levels of testosterone are detected in the urine, it is usually due to exogenous use. Thus Better check the list of standard pre employment test in your state and country for your job profile. Hope this helps. Please write back for further queries. Wishing you good health.
