DOT Drug Testing: Urinalysis or Hair Follicle?

double-quotes-start.png

I just failed a hair test but passed the urine test,this was for pre-employment for an oil field company. I'm currently looking at Dart Transit as a lease operator but can't find any info on their pre-employment drug screen. Please let me know any updates. f.y.i I was lucky to get a nice person that informed me of my failure, they took a hair from my body and was informed that body hair will show 1 year hair 90 days. I failed at .5 pecoograms (0.0005 nanograms) cut off is .1 pecoogram.

hair follicle can and only detect up to 90 days and FYI they are not as reliable as urine if you have a clean system for 90 days no worries 100% fact there is a great website on this answers.yahoo.com hair follicle vs urine

Thank you for responding. I've done a lot of research on this and found many variables. I passed the urinalysis test but failed the hair follicle test and was informed on 6/19/15. If Dart performs urinalysis test I'll be ok otherwise I don't want to go through that again. I cannot find any information out there concerning Dart's drug testing policy.

DOT Drug Testing: Urinalysis or Hair Follicle?

I get asked privately on a regular basis which companies do hair follicle testing and which ones do urinalysis. Would you guys mind telling me what you know from your experience with the companies you're with?

If you'd prefer to keep this private because you don't want people knowing which company you work for I'm totally cool with that. Click on my name to the left of this message and it will take you to my profile. You'll see a link that says "Would you like to send Brett a private message?" Click on that and shoot me a private message. I don't care who you are or who you work for. I just want to be able to help people get their trucking careers underway and help them prepare for any challenges that lie ahead.

Thanks!!!!!!

Searched the thread but could find nothing on Dart and hair follicle testing. Any updates? Thank You

DOT Drug Testing: Urinalysis or Hair Follicle?

I was in a very bad wreck (passenger in personal auto) 2 months ago. I am not a drug user under normal circumstances. But I was in a lot of pain and my friend came over with some weed. It helped me sleep that night. Haven't used it since nor do I intend to again. Not worried about UA test, will pass with flying colors. Not worried about randoms, won't be using it. But I am worried about the ever present hair testing. I have been checking into DART. Does anybody know which test they use. I don't want to kill my career over 1 night of pain relief. I haven't been in a CMV since before the accident.

Did you find out if Dart does hair follicle?
