In NJ, for FedEx Ground drivers, you are required (for pre-employment and every 7-12 months) to take and pass the New Jersey DOT physical test (vision, hearing, blood pressure, resting heart rate, movement, lifting, etc.) as well as a pre-employment 5 panal urinalysis drug screening. NJ FedEx Ground Drivers are also randomly drug tested during employment. Expect a drug test if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident or if they suspect you are under the influence of any narcotic, or under the influence of alcohol at work. A positive test results in immediate termination with no grounds to appeal. Expect the random tests to occur during times when a decrease in staff is warranted (i.e. after peak season - November and December, or if/when business in your area starts to slow down for various reasons). Be smart. It's a good job with it's pros and cons, however far from easy. If you need to have that weekly paycheck in order to make ends meet, you should ask yourself if doing anything that would show up on a drug test is worth jeapordizing your position within the company. 🤷♂️
Just received offer from fedex part time courier driver and have a test scheduled for next Tuesday (away for funeral till then) so here in Texas the answer is yes they do test pre hire don't apply if you're not clean. Physical same day also
Sacramento CA ..Yes DOT physical and drug urinalysis same day. Even though marijuana is legal it is NOT federally legal. 5 panel plus everything else that's on the strip I.e. creatine pH sugar etc.
No, they do not test you for drugs for pre-employment. However, they will test you if you have any accident while on the job.
As far as pre employment..... FedEx Express does drug testing. FedEx Ground does not. You may drug test for Ground if you're moving up the company ladder, not completely sure on that one. And don't know about the other FedEx branches
