    If it is hair they will go wherever they need to get it.

    Arm hair, leg hair, chest hair, pubic hair.
    Unless you bathed in Nair, everyone has enough hair for a drug test somewhere.

    Yea but that's freaking embarrassing.. they already shaved my armpits last time and it s@cked ###.... So rather go somewhere where they don't do that stupid shet... I'm clean.. a simple urine should suffice.. or do swabs like home depot.. none of that embarrassing hair stuff...

    Not sure what you find embarrassing about having a little hair shaved somewhere, how many people are you showing your arm pits to anyways? They only need 50 to 70 strands so they should not need to shave anything clean.

    DOT only recognizes urine tests but more and more companies are doing hair testing all the time to satisfy insurance company requirements and internal policies.

    You may need to do a search for what companies do not do hair testing as anytime someone asks about it the assumption is that the poster has something to hide and good responses are hard to get.

    I understand, luckily I won't have to do this much longer since it's becoming so annoying...

    Speed of the truck means absolutely nothing... if you work for a company that has lousy dispatchers that can't plan what the #### that's what you'll lose money
     
    MachoCyclone and Kasper42 Thank this.

    It's just another key to your success. True if you're only dispatched on 2500-3000 miles a week it doesn't matter how fast you get there, but if the loads are available and you can do 75-80mph you will make more money because you can do at least 100 miles more a day than someone at 63-67mph...

    Now get rid of the nany state and increase the amount of hours we can work a week say 80-90. Get rid of the 14 hr clock leave the 11 or increase to 13 like Canadians and we're golden baby... 700 miles a day 42cpm+ almost $300 a day average $2100 a week whaaat? Us poor deplorables can't be making that kind of money no way!

    It is Unsafe! Blah blah insert your excuse and or reason that we've been brainwashed with to not want to earn a decent income for wasting our lives out here (100k+ yearly)

    that is an absolute myth... My truck will do the speed limit in every state this country and there's been times I've done the speed limit and slowed it down to 62 miles an hour and it really doesn't amount to much difference at all negligible amount...
