    What kind of drug test should i expect at orientation?
    Should I hydrate before I go so I can be ready?

    Once yer with a Trainer a few weeks and then solo out .. you may take another 1-5 pee tests the first 6 months. It's normal for new hires.

    Also .. don't ever use mouthwash, unless it specifically says it does not contain alcohol. As May (and all other trucking firms) also do on the spot alcohol mouth swab tests. If ya used regular mouthwash, you will instantly come up dirty for alcohol while driving.

    We get a few guys on here worried about drug usage, some companies sample your hair for drugs. It can detect as far back as six months.

    He just got out of the USMC .. he wasnt worried about usage... just policy and how to prepare. he's thinking ahead, as he should be ...
