    Currently trying to get on with estes, background check thru hire right only took a week surprisingly. Was then called in to do drug test. Was expecting a quick turn around on results, but its been like a week and I haven't heard anything. I don't partake in anything, so I am not worried about results BUT I am trying to figure out why it is taking so long. I am so ready to put in resignation with current company. Has anyone experienced this before?

    I think they take at least a few weeks. Most LTL do. Might want to have mods move this to the Estes section

    I have experienced this exact thing. It came to the point where it was 3 weeks and the results didn't come back and Estes sent me to do another drug test at an out of network facility that they don't normally use and it came back the next day. They know they have an issue with who they use. Just be patient it'll happen.

    It took about 3 weeks for me from time of application until my first day watching orientation videos. I think my drug test actually took about a week to come back too now that I think about it.
