Do lineman jobs have drug tests

Yes, drug tests are very common and often mandatory for lineman jobs. For most IBEW and JATC positions all applicants undergo a drug test before entry. The cost of the test is covered by the JATC. Random drug testing is also common for co-ops and energy companies. There are some lineman jobs that may not explicitly state that a drug test is required. However, many journeyman positions have job duties in this position classified as being covered by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) (Title 49 CFR Part 382) and candidates who are not already in a DOT covered job classification must pass a pre-employment drug test.
