Is a hair follicle test part of their pre-employment screening?

Based off what I've been able to gather off the web they most likely don't, but everything I've found is at least a year old.

The "Hair Follicle vs. Urinalysis Drug Testing: Breakdown By Company" article on this site hasn't been updated since 11/22/19.

Anybody know?

Knight does both - hair and urinalysis - for pre-employment.

I'm asking if Prime, Inc does good sir, not Knight.

Prime does urine, not sure if it's a five panel or 10.

My comment was directed more to -

That, and I have a tendency to scroll past the thread subject too quickly. My bad.

I have a similar question. Did a little cannibus on vacation before I starting thinking more seriously about trucking.

I never did it before and probably won’t again. How long should I wait to apply?

Six months.

Any company could switch up on this, on the flip / on the fly. Good ole' Rick S. (who won't show up, no matter how hard I try!) did an article on this. Maybe two.

People that are concerned about HF vs. UA ... need to just wait it out..the good ole' buck 80 days, to be safe! Or more, tbh.

Just me, and IMHO....and the trends!

ps: Nobody wants to work at McD's and such nowadays; trucking companies are looking to get more picky. Trucker dot com and FleetMag articles, as DaveW. refers to, often.

Tell'em, PJ , Sid V. etc .. ~!!!

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.
