Any update on CRST since 2017?

Joel as of now Prime and Wilson are both UA only for pre-employment, though my contract at Wilson does state hair follicle can be used at any time for random checks.

The industry is very rapidly moving in the direction of hair follicle as the primary method.

My suggestion is ALWAYS assume you will be tested via hair follicle, give yourself enough time to make sure you pass that, then double it.

If you fail a pre employment screening you’re basically toast. Give yourself six months. It’s the only way to be sure.

That's what I'm doing. I recently quit with aspirations to become a trucker, currently looking to join Prime. I figure by August/September I'll be in the clear for a follicle test. I know you said Prime only does urine but I don't want any surprises to blow my chance at finally getting into an industry I've wanted to do my whole life.

By the way this is my first post. Cheers and I hope to be in the A seat in the near future.

So that you all may update your list. I was informed today that CRST now does both Hair Folicle and UA testing.
