Today I hustled to get done early but of course it's the day they sent me for a random. Had a 2 part route, left at 1130pm for a store in Cedar Rapids (237 miles) then a 2 store in town route (36 miles) with a backhaul of 2 pallets. Had my supervisor run with me to cedar rapids as he needs to do a weekly ride along and it just happened to be my turn. We got talking randoms and wouldn't ya know it I got a call from HR as I was 2 blocks away from the yard with my 2nd load. Rest of the day went really smooth, 2 pallet backhaul took 15 minutes from the time I approached the gate until I exited the gate loaded with paperwork in hand. Drug test ended up only adding an hour to my day including the commute there in the company car, plus i got paid while doing itsmile.gif

First random in 2 years as a driver. Did get sent 3 times in 3 consecutive weeks when I worked in Tampa Sysco warehouse just before I was set to transfer. I'll take a random every week. I got nothing to hide

I've never had one, but I've job-hopped so much, it adds up to more times I've been tested.
