Failed Drug Test Policy

It's truly amazing that you can have a perfect driving history. Never miss a day at work but fail a single random drug test and basically find yourself unemployable in the trucking industry.
This happened to me. Lost my job. Immediately completed the DOT SAP requirements and passed a second test within 30 days but no one will hire me during to stick company policies.
I'm in northern California. Looks like I will have to change careers just to put…

Opinons or suggestions: I was recently awarded an offer for a position with Parks and wildlife department in IT, after about a month of waiting for a decision, they finally made me an offer for the job based on stating I was their #1 choice. Then I was instructed to get my background check done at a 3rd party fingerprinting company. after getting a clear background check I was then waiting on my start date which should have been immediately, but…

Confused about Job offer

Troubled past? Honesty should be ur new best friend!

I have a pretty rocky past, including drug addiction, jail time & criminal charges. Our past choices will always effect our future, especially when seeking employment. But I have learned the one & only way to improve your chances of landing a job when u have rocky past like this, is to be completely open & honest about it right up front.. Dont wait for them to find out on their own, don't try to hide it & DEFINITLY don't lie about it if your…

Thanks for sharing your perspective Mary Schupbach ! I agree that honesty is the best policy. Do you have any resources you'd…

Stressed

After MONTHS of looking for work, I still have not been hired, well, I was offered a job opportunity for a place called ALC Solutions but once they ran my background after a few days of me working there, they took the job back. I was getting comfortable with that job and making friends and JUST LIKE THAT, it was snatched from me. :( Im starting to give up cause no matter where I apply, it seems like I will never get that chance all because of bad…

It took 11 years for my mistake to be forgiven by a past employer, whom I start with again on Monday.

Is a former employer allowed to give you a bad reference? In a word, YES.

If you have been terminated, faced disciplinary action, or had other problems on past jobs, your former employers CAN reveal that to a company considering you. Contrary to common belief, there ISN'T a law prohibiting this. As long as the information is truthful and factual it can be revealed. While companies may have a policy to only confirm that you were employed, they are not limited to only providing that information.

How do you overcome this…

There's two sides to your comment, you're speaking like an employers word is gospel. That's a bunch of bs. Team leaders…

Boycott Corporations who don't pay their share, and dictate how we live

Anybody out there tired of the power these giant corporations wield? They pay NO taxes, they demand UA's and refuse to hire or fire for THC fails. THC is LEGAL! The real problem is that it stays in your system for 30 days. They won't pay for a test to determine if you're inebriated RIGHT NOW. BTW, I'm not a legitimate pot head, just once or twice a week. ON MY TIME. Consumer's (US) hold the real power in this country. BOYCOTT ALL COMPANIES that…

Valid driver license needed?!

Why is it that most of the jobs want you to have a valid driver's license but alot of them you won't be driving their company cars??? Is this NOT discrimination? Don't we have enough that eliminates us from certain job positions like education level and back ground checks? Whether or not someone has a valid driver's license isn't important for all jobs. Give me a BREAK....

John is right about the reasons for a company wanting employees that have a drivers license. You are the one that will be…
