    If you are asking, it probably means you should be tested...Have you applied at FedEx?

    The only people that get drug tested are the feeder drivers. No part-timers get drug tested. Geez, half of my preload would be gone.

    The only time I have ever seen that people get tested is if they have justifiable reason to test a person.

    If there were drug testing then the local sort I came from would be 95% empty. I felt like the only person there who didn't use...

    Should you be tested?
    I think so.
    If you fail the test, you will have to pay the testing fee.
    No, it won't be done on-site. They will come to your house in the middle of the night.
    They like to do them on Sunday mornings.

    Illegal drugs are frowned upon. Why do you think they call it dope? But alcohol on the other hand, makes you a candidate for management.

    They can request a drug test for you if your appear or smell like your on something....So i recomend you use a roach clip, visine, and some mouthwash b4 you punch in....And leave the big bag of chips in the car, when you get the munchies later.

    IF you have to ask that question then maybe you should reconsider your career choice. That's like asking the DMV driving instructor if you HAVE to drive the speed limit. Are you planning on bein on the belt your entire stay at UPS? If not, how about a heads up when you get behind the wheel so I can stay the hell away.

    I don't mean to sound like Im downin you, I believe in everyone having their personal freedoms as long as they dont interfere with or harm anyone else. In fact I think thats the type of direction this country should move towards. However, when you ask questions like that it doesnt make us sound like we would be responsible with all that freedom now does it? JMO>...............MULE
