Orientation at western express

Im going to western express because i failed a random breathalyzer (passed the urinalysis) back in feb of 2015 working for a local rock hauling company,it was the monday after the super bowl , and local im off weekends and home every night, just stayed up too late and had too many beers. Before all this I drove for Schneider over the road for 6 months and done the family dollar acct for 3 months with them, drove a end dump for around 6 years until i failed that breathalyzer, since then i have completed the sap program and have been working a non dot job for around a year and a half now. After i completed the sap program i tried and tried to get a local and a otr job everywhere else but was declined over and over, i have a clean dmv (no accidents or tickets ,zero) not a felon. With my current employer i have only 5 previous employers in the last 10 years, western express called me back and i explained the failed test and that i completed a sap program and im invited to orientation anyways, sure i read all the stories and watched the youtube videos but in my case even if any of its true i still have to stick it out, last time i was over the road i took every load they gave me and i always planned my drives so i can shut down at the most an hour but many times I've pulled in truckstops or rest stops with that red light flashing lol, needless to say when i was over the road i ran hard slung loads and still had time to relax once and a while. So i guess i will see on the 3rd day if im hired or not at western express because it's really the only choice i have left
