I went to cr englands refresher training on 11/4/2007 and took my dot physical and drug test in their motel as directed. I went to school for 3 days of classroom training starting 11/5/2007.

On 11/7/2007 i graduated the classroom part scoring 95 and 100 respectively on the tests.I was issued my signed and dated dot physical card upon graduating along with my fuel cards. I started my road training driving localy with jack and was doing great as i have been off the road for ten years i was extremely happy it was coming back to me so quickly. I was the only student in my group shifting properly and not running over curbs or stalling out the truck.I did speed once and was quick to correct it and not speed again.

During the time there we were constantly asked to sign into their lease to own program.I had made it clear wuth my recruiter hayleigh pottle i wanted to be a company driver only and that was my answer while the training continued.I even went so far when asked once to say i thought anyone foolish to sign a lease when you did'nt even know if you and the company were going to be a fit together.

On 11/8/07 about noon time i was called off the road and into an office,given a number to call and was informed i had tested positive for marijuana. I asked this person how this could be possible if you don't smoke pot, the person then started asking me what medications i have been on that could have given a positive result. I told her i was taking 800 miligrams of ibuprofen, flexerill, sinus medicene and airborne immune boosteras i had a 28hr bus ride up there . Then she asked if i had been around anyone smoking pot and i said yes. I could smell it on the bus and in one of the bathrooms on the trip up there.

Now they want me to pay over 1,000.00 for a sap program and sent me home at my expense that same day. First i was told they have a no contest rule but when i continued to argue i was transfered to a michele who said she was the school manager and i could retest for 150.00. I told her i didnt have the money as i was unemployed in florida.

Now i'm worried how this is going to effect my chances of having any company give me a chance to show my driving skills and integrity by giving me a job?Thank You CR England for ruining my life.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I do not agree with your response because it happened to me too.

AUTHOR: LynnH. - ()

I was also attending cr england to get my cdl license, when pulled out of class one day to be told that my urine test came back just fine, but my hair follicle test came back positive for meth. I have never, not once in my life done meth, and with a hair follicle, it has to be something that you ACTUALLY have done. I'm not saying that I have not done meth for years, or saying it while maybe lying to myself, for whatever reason they do that, I am stating the simple FACT that I have never done, used, or however I should put it, used methanphedamine. So please, if you possible could, explain to me how it is my "hair follicle" test would come back positive, if it was not either a screw up on their part, or something else their pulling, because they would not even give me a chance to prove that they were wrong.

#2 Consumer Suggestion

Drug Testing and You

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

Hmm. I have been in the trucking business for 27 years as of November 16th this year. I went from company driver to owner operator to trucking company owner; I know what I am talking about.

I have to tell you that your story doesn't hold true. Why? Because with the type of RDS and PEDS that they do today, if you come back positive there is only 1 reason for it, because you are guilty. The old ate poppy seeds, been around a friend who was smoking doesn't hold up any more. I send people either out for random or for pre employment testing on a weekly basis. One time this guy swore on his mothers' grave that he had not been into the baggie and pipe and like you swore he was around someone who had been smoking, he was not. So for the fun if it all I sent him to the hospital and had his blood drawn, not only did he have the level of a daily smoker but tried to cover it up with a masking agent.

Call any doctor and ask them they will all tell you the same thing, second hand smoke doesn't fly. If you really wanted to push things and felt it has been long enough since the last time you hit the bowl, you should have went right down to the closest ER and asked them to do drug testing on you. They will do it, it will cost you the price of the ER visit and the labs, but if you wanted that stuff taken off of your DAC, that is the way it should have been handled. If you come back dirty again, they would not have known it, if you came back clean, you could have provided them with the paperwork.

The bottom line? When you are caught you are caught. You can not go in and tell those people any story they have not heard 100 times before. I am not upholding CR England, I think they are scum and so are most of their employees, with that being said, it is not their fault you failed the UA, it is your fault. Weather you burnt one going, burnt one a few days before you left, burnt one 2 weeks ago and tried to mask it, you were the master of your own destiny here my friend. They did what they were required by Federal Law to do. What can you do? Learn that depending on you BMI pot can stay in your system for up to 45 days and those little masking kits they sell at head shops are not worth the money, because they do not work.

If you can ever find anyone else to hire you I would highly suggest you go to Walgreens go to the pharmacy and tell them you want to buy a at home drug test. That way you won't totally be screwed, you can figure out where you stand before you take that trip (no pun intended) for nothing.
