CR England - Using hair follicle drug test

Jun 28, 2010
review #187505

They are using hair follicle drug test now.Very unfair, especially when it already has a 90% turnover rate.

There are some out there, who will stop smoking pot and whatever else they use to start a new career.

But when a hair follicle test can go back 7 yrs, that will add to drivers being put out of work. DOT randoms call for urine test, not hair test. They don't offer you goverment pay, so why use government drug test.

People should notify ACLU reps, and DOT to see if they have the right to use these test.

I guess all their drivers are perfect and can raise the dead as the only one perfect man did

I will say that I am just getting into this industry myself. Schneider, Melton, and CR England seem to be the main companies that use this test. Before I got into this industry I engineered and installed mechanical systems for NASA, Lockheed Martin, the U.S. Navy, and U.S. Air Force. Never once did they do anything outside of a urine sample or swab-saliva test. I find it incredibly embarrassing that our country allows such an invasion of privacy.
When I found out about this testing for truck driving I was appalled. Schneider was begging me to work for them because of my government background. i have worked overseas for several years as a civilian employee. I called Schneider myself and told them to stop asking me to work for their inferior outfit and spread the word to everyone I knew. I can pass one all day, but I would never work for a company that thinks they can convince our poor truck drivers that hair follicle testing is making our roads safer. If they cared about safety they would use breathalyzer machines making the drivers blow before they drive. Or possible completing a field sobriety test on their digital logging systems to see if any drug abuse will effect their driving for the day. Along with the random urine analysis. What people do after work NEVER causes them to crash. It's when their recreational activities make their way into the truck that bad things happen.
Main point? If I can work on missile defense systems for the military with a swab and

I have a rare condition called alopecia but I know I have enough hair to be tested. Can they use head or eyebrow hair?

CR England will do urine test on the first day for every new students. On the second day, they will randomly pick 10 students out of 50 to do a hair test(hair test is way more expensive than urine test). With that said, they also do a random urine testing once you are hired. Get your story straight U dumb anonymous tard!!!

I,d like to discuss this matter cause I,m a victim of a hairfolic test that was wrong. The companies MRO officers refused to send me the results of test but I got retested the next month and results came back negative. Quote me i don,t soke period drink or do drugs i,m also diabetic. I lost my house a whole lot of other things and still fighting with rest of companies to hire me. Been out of work since March and they got FMSCA head official to try and force me to go to SAP program to make them look right so plz people this is some serious stuff for truckdrivers so plz note I was retested and I still can,t get company to realize this was wrong, they ruined my career by being wrong

you are right these companies have no right to judge people as long as they are following the DOT then they shouldn't have to go back that far with a follicle test, that is digging to far in a persons past. then again i guess they want to see what kind of people they have carrying their stuff. people who have used drugs in the past, no matter how long ago tend to be unreliable and un trustworthy but once again that is not for me or any company to judge. i see both sides to this one. :?
