Medical tests before working in Poland

Hi all,

I got a job in Poland as customer service in my own language.
But my boss told me today that I have to do a medical examination before I can start working.
What can I expect from that kind of tests?

A friend of my (Polish) he work in a shop and he had to do tests like: body scan, poop & blood check.
Do I have to do the same or something different?

Somebody know the answer?

Nobody here can answer that. Ask your future employer.

The poop in necessary if you have contact with food. That's why your friend had to do this.
Dominic is right though- the doctor that will check you has all the requirements. Usually if the job doesn't have any special conditions the test takes 10 mins.

If they are offering you private medical insurance inclusive of your package...

They may also wish to establish if you are pregnant or not.

I rather think it's simple medical test required by Polish law.

Because most of them either live thousands of miles away or are self-employed.

I've had the mandatory tests for different jobs, and they vary according to what that job is. For office work, they're very straightforward - just like a quick check-up from your GP. They're mostly a formality.

Nothing to do with private medical insurance.

So this is an office job.
I had the same before starting my job, they check your sight, and simply ask questions of you have any medical issues and that is that.

Takes 10 minutes tops.

and guess what -- you'll get to retake it regularly.

it's short and simple ... and its worth is open to debate. I had one while in the middle of chemotherapy ... I decided in the end to tell the doctor what was happening - she certainly hadn't noticed anything untoward ... not even the wig.

A lung X-ray is always part of the test. As a public sector employee I have to have a thorough check up every two years. No doubt private sector employers have their own requirements, but the lung X-ray seems to be universal. You should explain your medical history to the radiographer rather than wait for him/her to discover the scar. Reports from your doctors from home might help, too.

What you mean scar? Unless is pilot or driver job nothing to worry about. They hunt for tuberculosis.

Unless you have tuberculosis or apply for a job where it matters (sports or something with fumes/gases) you should be ok

It depends. There are some jobs or work branches which require full spatial sight so if you have lazy eye, you will need glasses if they resolve the problem.

See them here
