I know every company has there own rules, so you would want to ask that question to your recruiter(s)

It may have dawned on you after you posted it, but to be clear let's not ask the recruiter about drinking policies at a place you're trying to land a job.

Thank you everybody for your responses. I was just curious about if it was legal or not. I wouldn't even consider drinking any alcohol, unless it was beginning of my reset, but its safe to say thats really not a great idea, even if its 1 beer. I would never attempt to drive anytime close to when I'd had any. Hell, i dont even drive a personal vehicle after I've drank anything.

On a lighter note...i think Daniel B says he would never do it cuz he ain't old enough yet rofl-3.gif

Oh man you opened a can of worms. I'm old enough but the biggest lightweight ever. I'm tipsy after 2 small bottles of Mikes Hard Lemonade. And I'm actually drunk at 3.5 bottles.

It's not that I'm not old enough, I just can't handle it. There goes my manhood!

Don't do that , lol . Enjoy the easy buzz when you can. I would be bar tending and guys would brag " I have already knocked out twenty-four pack this afternoon" and you would never know it. They should not of told me that. Men keep their sense of berring. These guys wet there beds. embarrassed.gifconfused.gif

I have often heard that in your personal vehicle cdl holders are only allowed .04 but have never seen the actual law written anywhere. Can anyone confirm this?

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.
