    Read on another forum that they do now, but no verification in the thread.

    Does Knight Transportation do hair follicle test? Swift and Knight merged and the whole new company is under Knight management. Do what you want, but I wouldn't risk it even on a phone call.

    Sadly, I drive for Swift. They'll drug test you twice before you're hired and again if you're prone to hitting things with the truck. They can do reasons at any time too.

    Don't know if Knight does follicles or not. And they're still 2 distinct companies with no policy or practices mixing. We don't share terminals, equipment or staff.

    I'm going by what I read on a business website a couple of months ago. Probably just a matter of time.

    It's expensive and both have deep pockets. I think the caliber of recruits won't justify the expense of those tests. The class I was in started with 14 people, 2 of us graduated lol. That would've been a huge waste of resources to follicle test the other 12.
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.
