Wnat does "no SAP" mean?

Terry, can you share with us where you learned this is true about most job listings that indicate no SAP?

I've worked in recruiting for a very long time. I'd like to know what makes you think most companies will work with someone who has completed SAP. Where did you get that information from?

I have been on the phone with about 10 companies (don't remember which) and while my "revelation" is not true of all of them, at least half of them indicated as I stated. It seems like there is no clear definition of "no SAP" on job listings and different companies have different definitions for the designation.

It simply means they don't hire people who've had to go through the Substance Abuse Program. If you want to get back into trucking failing a D.O.T. drug test, you must go through a SAP program. Going thru the program does not give a mandate saying trucking companies must hire you. Some of them simply won't take that risk.

Thank you for the response and information. However, you could (should) have stopped after the first sentence. I didn't ask about any of those other things.

Additionally, you are incorrect. Upon further research, I have found that most job listings that indicate "no SAP" are referring to people who are actively in the RTD process, typically on the last step (Follow-Up Testing Plan). They are willing to hire someone who has obtained a drug test violation and completed the RTD process in the past, they just don't want to deal with the RTD process themselves (excessive drug testing, not enough time since test fail, requirement to post test results to FMCSA Clearinghouse, etc.).

In the future, I'll research just a bit more before posting questions. :)

When job listings and prospective employers indicate "no SAP," do they mean you are not qualified if (a) you have not completely finished the RTD process INCLUDING the last step of 6 random drug tests in a 12-month period, (b) you have ever been required to go through the RTD process, or (c) you have ever failed a drug test?
