There's companies that just do UA I thought?

The first thing I do when I get home (if I ever get off this greyhound) is go for a ten panel follicle screen from a different company than original. It will be ten days since original test but that is as good as I can do.with those results in hand I should hopefully have some ammunition to work with to go to a lawyer and ideally just get schneider to not post info. Chances are probably slim to none but this is too important to not fight it.Dave could you message me those company names? Thank u all

Not very cost effective but I'd get tested twice. Majority rules......

Do whatever it takes to keep a clean slate.

Good luck

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Great Answer!

You were sent home from orientation. Which means you weren't even hired yet, much less driving, so there is a good chance the lab reported to the results to no one but you and your employer.

I failed a urine test by the first company I went to work for, they sent me out for training while awaiting results, I failed and took a three day trip back home, thinking I had blown it. I had another job in ten days, passed the drug test and had no further problems. The results weren't reported to DOT...they don't report pre employment drug screens.

If you have your lab form from the failed test call and ask them who they report results to.

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.

This is actually something I was wondering about because I'm one of those rare women with a shaved head (my hair is a curly mess and it's incredibly frustrating to maintain). Do they differ to a UA? I could try to grow my hair long enough. Just don't want to miss a job opportunity because I don't have any hair long enough to sample.

I'm a male in the same boat. I start my training next Tuesday. I'm an amateur body builder and have no hair other than my eyebrows lol. Does every company do a hair test? If yes then I'm not going to waste time and money getting my cdl. I can't afford to sit idle making no money while I wait to grow hair.

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.

Not every company does hair test... You use the search engine at the top of this site to search for ua vs hair and find the companies that don't do hair test
