    Are you a botanist? How can you be 100% certain you were smoking marijuana? If you aren't 100% sure why would you volunteer the info? The companies are going to check a box on a form given to them by their insurance company. They aren't going to reward you for honesty, they are going to throw your application away.

    I'm positive it was marijuana. My DOT medical exam report form says I used marijuana in the past two years. My recruiter said that's not an issue as long as I haven't used it in the past 6 months.

    Millis Transfer and Stevens Transport still do urine test and both have their own cdl school.

    Forget Prime; my money says there's a 99.9999999 chance you won't be hired.
    Start over and don't talk so much.

    Idk man, in this past week I've had several drivers currently with Prime confirm they don't hair test under any circumstances. Like if I showed up completely shaved head to toe then yeah they might send me home. Even if I fail a hair test its not reported to the clearinghouse, so I could still be hired by other companies. Its not like I'm suuuuper duper excited about Prime in particular and dead-set on only working for them anyway. I already have my class A btw.

    You already have a cdl?

    Hair test maybe not put in clearinghouse, but can still be on DAC report unless the company is nice about it and just says you were released/fired for "Not complying with company policy."

    I "talked" because It already says on my med card that I've used marijuana in the past two years, so I was just being honest with the recruiter since they're going to see my med card anyway. Yes, I realize I should have just not put that on my med card. My mistake.
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    If you really want to drive for Prime, then give it a try. If something falls through, other companies will hire you.
