I will be provided a company car. Their parent company is Georgie Pacific and I read where they and Kraft Foods were leaders in the industry in terms of advanced drug screening. I can pass urine and salavia but am concerned they will do a hair folicle test. What are the chances they will do a hair test? I have been clean from marijuanna for 21 days now and intend on staying clean....what a life lesson I have learned.
Unfortunately, that information does not seem to be available online. In my experience, most employers will tell applicants the type of drug testing they utilize (hair, urine, saliva) if asked. The primary reasons that employers do preemployment, random and post accident drug testing are to select employees who are not currently using drug based on the belief that non-drug using employees will be more product and less likely to be involved in accidents. It has less to do with "catching" people and more to do with deterrence. If they are using hair testing, they are usually proud or happy to tell the potential employees - since this deters those who have used for a longer period of time. My suggestion would be to contact the HR department and ask why type of drug testing they do.
