    I know that they test for nicotine and tobacco but how often is it? What would happen if they tested an employee and the employee popped positive?

    I think they go ahead with chemical castration but let you keep the job.

    I'm gonna guess they test for insurance? Like how non smokers have lower insurance than smokers? Maybe your rates will just go up ‍♂️

    For companies that give health insurance, having all of their employees tobacco free can result in a big savings on premiums.

    U-Haul probably doesn't hire smokers to drive their equipment because many people won't rent the trucks the smell like stale tobacco.
    U-Haul does hire drivers to move equipment around the nation.

    I remember seeing a U-Haul ramp truck loaded with the small trailers heading for U-Hauls all over the place.

    Sometimes U-haul runs ads looking for drivers to so just that.
    There's a driver on this forum that owns a U-haul franchise.

    Just saying. Dont let your truck smell like a ash tray. People wont report you. You won't get tested.
    I have to comened you. If I couldn't smoke I wouldn't work there.
