I am considering changing careers and getting into truck driving. As I have used drugs in the past, I would like to know which companies out there use ONLY the urine test. Thanks!

I just got a document from Con-way outlining their training and it noted that they take a 1/4" hair sample for their test. They also do UA.

Don't think anyone drives for them. Someone would need to contact them and ask. Call them then post the answer they give you here.
