If you're passionate about making a difference one individual at a time, and would like to join the Cigna team, you'll be screened for nicotine as part of the pre-employment drug screen in states that allow the screening. If you test positive for nicotine, although we won't be able to offer you employment, we encourage you to check with your medical provider to explore your options and resources for quitting.
