Default Drug test

Hi BE,

I have been driving trucks for around 3 years, a dump truck to be certain and had been thinking of trucking in Canada for a change of environment.

I had a question, how many drug tests do I have to take? From what I read in this forum, there is one after you submitted a job application to the company where you also have to do medical tests, police report and other documentations after which I'll fly over to have an interview.

The other drug test would be upon starting job as I had read.

This is my primarily concern, I had used a soft drug during a party 2 weeks ago. Drug use would be detected in fair follicles for up to 90 and even 180 days. Is the drug test conducted using urinalysis, blood or hair follicles?

Thank you.

Are you a regular user because if you are your fooked
The medical and drug tests are quiet stringent
Its normally a urine sample that you have to give but if it ends up positive they may ask you to give a blood sample and if that's positive to you are out of luck and a job as most company's that offer you a job will say its subject to you passing a medical and drug test and if you fail you don't have a job as company's have a zero tolerance policy towards drug users.
As you would also be on that company's lmo your tempery work permit is also tied in to that company that would employ you so you could not work for any one else or do any other job and might as well not get on the plane in the first place as it would be a waste of time and money for you and the company as they also do random drug tests

A change of environment????,,,,,,
It would certainly be that from driving a dump truck.
l would suggest going and getting some long distance experience for a couple of years and stay away from weed in the meantime.
