    Hello everyone,

    I should be testing out in the next week or two and TMC is one of my preferred to possibly pick.

    OK here is my comment & Question...

    I stopped smoking Pot a few years ago, but about a few weeks before i started school I was at a friends birthday party and actually I smoked one with him and a few friends, it had been years and didn't think it would hurt anything. Well when i began school i took my urinalysis and like I thought I passed and was happy my lack of inhibriated judgement that night, didn't hurt me.

    Forward to today and I heard from another student that he knew someone that went to TMC and they plucked a hair.:biggrin_25524:

    Does TMC use Urinalysis or hair follicle drug testing?:biggrin_2554:

    (I have smoked just that once in years and my job was not in jeopardy, because they didnt test and would hate to be excluded from being hired based on something I did even before school started and havent done since or will not do again because they use a hair follicle test that can pick up traces from back then):biggrin_25524:

    Can anyone give me the downlow on this...

    Thank you so much

    Never heard of them using hair...maybe someone can chime in on this also. Think hair samples go back 3 months

    well thanks for the input guys... please by no means am I a drug head just tried once after many years and actually felt stupid about even that... because I have a great family, kids and wife and nothing is worth jeopardizing my ability to provide for them. Thanks again so much I will keep reading and see if there are any contrary posts if not I will feel more confident with the decision to start at TMC

    Pee in the cup, no hair. However, george, the guy who runs orentation will destory your dac if you fail, as will most other companies. You better get a home test kit and make #### sure your clean before going anywhere. As a professional driver you will be subject to randoms, post accident, ect. test at a moments notice. Another lapse in judgement in the future can ruin you career, or take your freedom away. There is no place in trucking for drugs. If you have friends that smoke, stay away from them when they are partaking, or if your not strong enough to say no, avoid them altogether.

    Yeah and dont be the guy like in my class who actually asked if smoking weed 3 or 4 months ago would show up on a drug test. Needless to say he was gone later that day.... And people say there is no such thing as a stupid question.
