do the companies do drug-tests?

Yes they do, you will be required to pass a pre-employment urine analysis drugs test as well as an alcohol test.

Basically, don't smoke pot for 3-4 weeks (depends on body type) and you'll be good to go (there's ways around this!).

Also, they do "post incident" testing, so if you trip and break your ankle, you'll be tested, hit something with your truck, you'll be tested and (this one is the worst), if someone hits you (say you're in a parked truck and they back into you), you all have to be piss tested!

Its not something I really agree with, as it tends to push guys away from pot (which I consider to be less harmful than booze) and into harder drugs like crack, meth and Oxys, which leave your system in a couple of days.

Of course its best not to do any drugs, but if you must, its wise to partake when you're NOT at work, especially in an industrial environment!
