Yes, they have a uniform shop and you will be fitted the first week. You will get a set amount to purchase uniforms, steel toe boots and safety glasses. It will take around a month to receive the shirt and pants because they are personalized with your name. The boots you get that day and you will need your eye prescription for the safety glasses which will take around a month to receive also. If you don't have a current eye prescription then wait on getting one because your insurance kicks in the first week you start and will cover it.

As far as my ranting. There is freedom of speech. But again SORRY if you were offended.....Now I see why Toyota asks so many behavioral questions!!!!!
I am not offended Sir/ Madam. I think you are over reacting to the simple question that was asked, so yeah, I'm glad they do behavioral testing. Oh and I have been through all steps except the interview, but rest assured I will nail that too. As far as me saying "if anyone could help me out I would appreciate it", you didn't help me out. You went on a rant and used the word "you" quiet a bit. Maybe "you" should go back and read your post. If you weren't directing drug use toward me, then perhaps you should have chosen your words more carefully. When referring to no one in particular, the word "one" should be used. Its basic English really. You go ahead and practice your freedom of speech, but I will not correspond with you anymore. You are not helpful, and you only want to argue. Good luck to you with your Toyota endeavors.

Just let you know an attitude like that will get you no where with Toyota.

They do not take lumps of hair from one spot. They can detect drug usage from as far back as 5 yrs with a hair sample. People do not realize that a drug can stay in your body that long, but it can. However, most companies will not spend that type of money to trace that far back. Most only trace as far back as a year or two.

nomadslove,,,, Good luck to you also. I didn't join this forum to have confrontation with anyone. Everyone on here is waiting in anticipation of the call they have been waiting for and to inform, encourage and uplift each person they come in contact with. If I said something to you, which evidently I did to offend you again I am so sorry. Im staying positive and keeping negativity away. Im sorry if you are not corresponding with me again, but I don't turn my back on people because of misunderstanding. You be blessed in your interview and I hope you do nail it.

Just never alienate yourself with someone with Toyota. It is frowned on.

Ucreb....I agree. I never meant to offend anyone in any way. I have always been said to be the peacemaker in situations, so I was confused at what I said that was out of the way or offensive. Maybe I should just bow out of this forum because of the high degree of anxiety from others. I was totally misunderstood. I don't label anyone. I don't know anyone on here other than post back and forward. I have nothing against anyone. I just want to have a peaceful correspondence back and forth between us potential Toyota members.
