Hey guys and gals, First of all I respect what you do and the sacrifices you make. I had a tumor removed in 2007 which left me deaf in the left and balance kind of iffy. Not worried about the DOT physical, just the company physical. Will probably go to swift just to get the OTR experience. I have studied all 5 tests for a cdl in texas and can ace those. Its the company physical that im freaking on. I cant do the heel to toe thing or stand on one leg for to long. Does anybody know what they have you do at swift for the company physical, any crazy balance stuff or basically the same as DOT. Thanks everybody and stay safe out there. I am also thinking pf prime if anybody knows about their in house physical

Drug Testing

Brett, your a wise man.

There's a lot more to it than just people doing illegal drugs. For instance:

Say you wind up in screaming pain with an abscess tooth and you have to suffer with it for the next 18 hours until you can get to the Dentist so you take a couple of your wife's old prescription pain pills she had left over to make it more bearable. Well unfortunately that's not your prescription so that's going to be a failed drug test if it gets detected. So people want to know how long they'll have to wait to get started in the industry.

Another example would be someone who lost a loved one recently and went through a bout of depression so they sought some counseling and were given some anti depressants to help get them through the toughest part. After a short time they're doing better so they're ready to hit the job scene but they don't want potential employers finding out about the anti depressants for fear of being turned down for the job. So they want to know what type of drug testing is being done by different companies and they want to know how long it will be before it won't show up on tests.

There are a lot of reasons why people would want to know what type of drug testing is being done by different companies. It's not just about people who use illegal drugs.
