Security Guard VS HoS

I didn't read all the replies. That being said I ran a yard at an amazon for 2 years ending this past July. If a man was out of hours with electronic logs I told him he could stay in my bobtail lot. If he had paper logs I sent him 1.5 miles up the road to the truck stop.

Hair drug test questions....

OK so here's what happen, I went today for the test and as suspected my head hair was too short. So after careful consideration between me and the tester, she spent 25 minutes snipping and tugging at every hair on my body. We collected some from my arms, arm pits and legs. She was pretty sure it would be enough. So I called Schneider after I left and told them what happened and they said if the test is in conduct able I would have to simply wait till my hair on my head was long enough. Here's to keeping my fingers crossed!!🙏🙏🙏🙏

Hair drug test questions....

I'm going for my drug test tomorrow for Schneider. I know they require a hair test. The hair on my head is about 1/4 inch long and my body hair or should I say lack of is almost non existent. I've been reading up on how the testing is done and it says the need 1.25 inches of hair. Yea good luck on finding that on my body. So my question is how do they go about collecting it from me? I'm not worried about passing the test. Just curious as to how they will collect it.

Running into road blocks at every turn

I've had my class A for about 6 years now. I've been off the road for the past 2 years running a jockey crew. I have 10.5 months verifiable experience in 5 years. I spent a week on the phone with JB Hunt setting up orientation and what not. I was all set to go to new jersey Sunday morning to start Monday. I get a phone call at 7:30 this morning telling me I was under experienced. Well OK, now what? I made a few more calls to some local companies and yet again I don't have 3 months in 6 months. I spoke with a friend of mine who use to drive for Schneider. He said it was a good place to work for and to call them to see if they can help. After talking to the recruiter, she tells me I only need a minimum of one month. I got that!! I have my phone interview Monday at 4 pm. So I guess my question is, do I have any other options that i might be missing??
