after I finished driving school.. I went to werner orientation on the beginning of the second day... i went to tell them that i wasnt interested in being employed with them... I was told that i needed to sign out an exit interview so i did. so then i called swift....( yes i hear the comments now ive heard them all) there was no problem with anything on my dac i trained an drove for them... after a while i went to apply with some other companies... an i was told that i was able to be hired at that moment because of a positive pre-employment drug test with werner....I about went through the roof...ive call werner i dont know how many times...i hit a brick wall everytime.... dont know what to do... i spent all this money for a cdl i cant even use.... what iam confused about is why didnt it come up when swift an u.s express did a check...something is up....

DRUG TEST DURING ORIENTATION?

AUTHOR: Av8rdawg - (U.S.A.)

TO START WITH, ORIENTATION HAS NEVER BEEN A GUARANTEED JOB POSITION. ONCE YOU COMPLETE IT AND ALL CHECKS ARE FAVORABLE FOR YOU, THE COMPANY MAKES A DECISION TO HIRE OR SEND YOU BACK HOME. HOWEVER; YOU DO HAVE A RIGHT TO REQUEST, UPON FAILURE OF THE URINE SAMPLE METHOD OF TESTING, AN IMMEDIATE RETESTING ON DRUG TESTING. THE NEW METHOD, AND MORE RELIABLE IS THE HAIR FOLLICLE METHOD.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Positive test?

AUTHOR: Deborah - (U.S.A.)

Unfortunately, there is little you can do because of the time that elapsed. Normally, you can request a split sample test be done to confirm or disprove the result, but that is VERY time limited for what I hope are obvious reasons.

Placing the result of said test on your DAC has no such time limits, and Werner generally does the reports in batches to obtain discounts over filing the reports individually as they happen. That would explain why Swift had no problem because you went directly to them after Werner.

You could request a free copy of your DAC in writing from USIS within 30 days of denial of employment based upon said report, and then challenge the allegation. IF Werner can back up the claim with, for instance, a laboratory statement, the claim will stick because you neglected to enforce your rights as outlined on the form you signed when getting tested.

You may also want to try this - have your family doctor request a copy of the laboratory report showing that YOU had a positive drug test and for which drug. By law, this is medical information your regular doctor would need to treat you, and he or she can then give you a copy. Odds are, if the allegation is bogus, Werner can't produce the report.

Good luck to you, because time is not on your side on this one.

#3 Consumer Suggestion

Don't let them get away with it

AUTHOR: Matthew - (U.S.A.)

Hello my name is Matthew and I have a suggestion!
I am going through the very same thing with another company at this time. They told me 3 days after I had gotten home from orientation that my urinalysis came back showing positive for cocaine (BS) quit simply that is impossible since I do not use drugs, so at any rate my wife and I were in total disbelief at this time and wondering what was going to happen to us now since I had spent the last 2 years of my life trying to get into a driving school. You see I had a funding agency funding me and they required a letter of pre-hire before they would pay hence the 2 years.

Well back to the story so the wife and I immediately got on the computer and started researching and we came up with this do a hair follicle to prove innocence so we did. I am expecting the information from hair follicle wich I know will be negative in the next couple of days. The hair follicle can go back for up to 12 months or so we have read although it most commonly only dates back 90 days. I got news for the company trying to pull this with me they didn't just screw with me but also my wife and you don't wanna piss her off, now here is the kicker my funding agency is the state of washington and I have been on social security since 1989 so the company that did this to me has got a real fight on there hands and I am going to make it my personal mission to fight for driver rights! I feel for you friend my advise to you is find a reputable agency to do a hair follicle test on you, preferablly an agency that is recognized by DOT, do a hair follicle, and then cut them like they have cut you remmeber the old saying do unto others as you would have them do unto you, well do unto them just like they have done unto you and hurt them through the legal system.

Off the subject now, if all the drivers of our country would band together just for one day and stop there trucks for only one day it would bring this country to its knees and then we, all drivers could demand better treatment by companies and they would have to give it, it will never happen but it is a nice sensationalist dream. Something is way up because all driving jobs are safety sensitve and a dirty UA the way I believe it to be means you have no license until going through DOT drug program and even then you will never be hired by a company because you have just admitted to drug use by going through treatment.
GOOD LUCK FRIEND

oh what ever

AUTHOR: Richard - (U.S.A.)

even if you were employed at werner for one day. swift or u.s express wouldn'tve hired you if that b s was true . the same thing happened to a buddy of mine at stevens transport. but unfourtunatly for him he faught the case and sued for defamation of charracter. so just get a dac report and fight it in court.

#5 UPDATE Employee

Well

AUTHOR: Jenna - (U.S.A.)

You said that you came back to Orientation on the 2nd day...meaning you were there on the first day, right? Meaning you took a required drug screen..

As of that first day you were HIRED as a Werner Employee. You may have came in and quit on the second day, but you were hired nonetheless. I dont understand why you are complaining. You failed a drug screen. Of course that is going to come back on your DAC report, what did you expect?
