    If you're bald they'll get it from your chest or armpits.

    I went with swift back in 2011 and 25 people showed up for orientation and that morning after the drug test there was only 12 left and being a newb I asked another student what happened to all the other guys in the class?he said drug test ,I was blown away at the dummies that come there thinking there're going to drive a 80k truck doing drugs ,maybe this is Swift's way of trying to turn things around but they have a long way to go.

    While I am by no means perfect, I could care less if they pull hair or take the liquid in the party cup. If you are clean, or can keep yourself clean for a few months this wouldn't even be thought. Problem is, people can't stay away long enough, or trying to clean up and think by jumping behind the wheel the addiction will go away.

    It would not be a bad idea if every trucking company, ranging from 1 employee to 1,000 plus employees did both the urine and hair follicle tests.

    It also would not be a bad idea for every applicant to submit a tube of blood for further tests and analysis. This way there is no doubt that the truck driver is clean.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    Went to an orientation for other company, full of ex cons. Anyway after orientation one day a potential driver was trying to sell his girlfriend and meth right after road tests. Just another day.

    Good for them. The companies that don't do hair tests is getting to be a very short list.
