Looking for advice on how to get rolling again. Got 4 accident free months solo flat bed under my belt. Was terminated do to "company policy violation". I had down time at the main terminal and volunteered to do a hair follicle test. Came back poz for pot. Traced it back to something I ate with out my knowledge around Christmas last year. Being that I volunteered for this test nothing was reported and nothing shows on my background check. Having a hard time trying to find a company that will work with me do to the fact that I was "terminated do to company policy violation". Can anyone help??

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Good luck. What company were you with? The best advice is to be honest with future companies. Good luck.

I'm probably not qualified to give you a good answer. However, for someone who might be able to help you, they probably need to know a little more about the violation you were terminated for. Not trying to pry into your personal stuff, it's just that knowing the exact nature of the violation might help them help you better.

they cut him a break and said policy instead of failed drug test. i dont know how to work around that. you failed a drug test and if you lie about it you screw yourself more. i would try to find out how to appeal it. the i ate something doesnt fly well.
