    Are you concerned about passing the drug test?

    As of last summer, Dan Peterson, Marten's safety director, said they were considering it. Not sure if they implemented it by now or not. Assume they did.

    I started with Marten in January. Physical was really physical with lifting, pushing, pulling, stooping etc. Drug test was a urine test. Orientation was two days and Marten has a lot of Pete's and freightliners, a few internationals and KW'sand just started getting in new Volvo's.

    Any updates as far as methods of drug testing? I can pass a UA no problem, but fear I will fail a hair follicle test (due to past mistakes I've made BEFORE i decided to be a truck driver)
