    I am hoping to start a new career as a driver. I am drug/alcohol free but did smoke weed once in awhile up until about two months ago. I know hair analysis goes back a long time. I would like to find out what companies do or do not do hair analysis.

    i believe that the ordinary "pee in a cup" is still the standard testing being done. at least quite frankly up till now, i have not read any threads or posts that have reported more intensive testing.

    please stay off the crap.....and you'll NEVER have to ask this question again..

    (and for the record, when someone asks this question, i wonder how serious and truthful they are about being "drug and alcohol free"...)

    best of luck to you.

    There was an story on the trucking channel a couple of weeks ago about some large carriers moving to the folicle test.

    yes the "pee" test is the most typical test. DOT sets the minimum standards... a company can set whatever it wants above that minimum as it sees fit.

    I went to orientation for Roehl on May 9th in Marshfield and we did hair and urine testing.
