    Didn't know. I stay away from the terminals. Now if they'd just invest some money into training drivers lol

    5 years ago, got hair tested at the Pumpkin, since I run with a no.1 buzz cut, they used my chest hairs. They usually check back to 3 month's.

    How is Swift by the way? Their terminal up here in Troutdale is in a shady location.

    The whole problem with swift is how big it is. We need drivers to move freight so the hiring and training practices suffer for it. The bar is really low. The school only teaches enough to pass there cdl test and the trainer uses new drivers as team drivers so they end up learning nothing.
    They do keep me running and the majority of office staff are pretty cool but the company on the whole is dysfunctional. Terminals are great places to get your truck smashed which is why I avoid them.
    Troutdale is one of my favorite terminals but you're right, everyone knows north Portland is greasy lol.
     
    Rocknroller4 Thanks this.

    Too many idiots coming out of these places now! Yea,we need more drug users on the road!
    If the OP has to ask what type of drug test they do then He needs to NOT be behind the wheel......
    Sorry to be harsh but this is just another example of where this industry is at now!

    You got that right haha. Yeah it's not the greatest location but I did read they actually have good driver facilities at that terminal. Actual proper showers and all. Great profile avatar by the way. Love Celtic Frost.
