    ...I just wanted to say thank you! I passed my test and I'm able to provide for my family with the best job I've ever been given the opportunity to work! It worked perfect! I actually was sent to a second testing facility which added two hours to my 'hold time' and had no temp changes! Thanks again!...

    ...I really wish I would have found your products before I used synthetic urine and failed. =( There are so many success stories on forums and the internet from people who have succeeded by using synthetic, but I guess those days are long gone. I knew better, but didn't listen to my better judgment. My test results came back "inconclusive" when I used synthetic...

Does FedEx Drug Test

PUBLISHED: Thursday, May 21, 2020

FedEx Corporation (FedEx or “the company”) provides a portfolio of services through its operating companies: express transportation through Federal Express Corporation (FedEx Express) and TNT Express, BV, small-package ground delivery through FedEx Ground Package System Inc., and less-than-truckload freight transportation through FedEx Freight Corporation. 

A top 100 contractor of the US government in 2018, FedEx has 475,000 team members or employees. The majority of the jobs at this global company involve working or facing customers as a courier, customer service agent, or sales professional. As it is, you can give applying at FedEx a shot and prepare for the hiring process, including any drug test, as discussed below. 

Does FedEx Drug-Test Employees? 

In its Code of Conduct, FedEx states its commitment to a healthy and safe workplace and compliance to health and safety laws, as applicable. Maintaining a workplace that is free of alcohol and drugs is in this pledge, per the company’s policies and laws on the national, state, and local levels. Indeed, the company calls on third parties who work with it also to comply and commit to the same goal of keeping the company’s workplaces alcohol-free and drug-free. 

Pre-employment Drug Testing

The requirement to take and pass a drug test at an interview or during the hiring process may be based on the position being applied (e.g., driver, package handler, and warehouse worker) or the location of the post. 

Drug Testing during Employment

FedEx is known to conduct random drug testing on drivers in line with the Department of Transportation (DOT) guidelines.  Aside from random testing, drivers with commercial driver’s license (CDL) are required to submit to alcohol and drug testing for pre-employment, after crashes (postaccident), due to reasonable suspicion, and upon resumption of driving duties (return-to-duty) and follow-up tests.  

The Answer

With no publicly available copies of FedEx’s pre-employment drug-testing policies for all positions, do your research, and check with others who have or held similar jobs. It will also help to learn of possible consequences of testing positive for drug use.
