Pre-Employment Drug Screen Testing

  • Alyeska Pipeline Service Company (APSC) requires pre-employment drug testing utilizing hair test collections for all positions. The preferred collection site is from the head (approximately 1/2 inch of hair length necessary).   Head hair testing provides an approximate 90 day window of detection that checks for drug use.  In addition, for Department of Transportation covered positions, APSC will also utilize urinalysis testing. Any drug test makes you ineligible for APSC employment.
  • It is important to note that APSC does not seek or accept any genetic information as part of the hair testing procedure or any other process that could directly or inadvertently provide genetic information (family medical history).
Employment Verification using E-Verify
  • Federal Law requires all employers to verify identity and employment eligibility of all persons hired to work in the United States.  Alyeska Pipeline Service Company participates in E-Verify. 
  • E-Verify is an Internet-based system that compares  information from an employee's Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to data from U.S Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records to confirm employment eligibility.


  • The Alyeska Valdez Marine Terminal (VMT) is a regulated facility, and the employee hired to work on the VMT or to provide emergency support or other approved work for the VMT will be required to have a Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC).  For more information about this Federal credential access the Web site listed below.  The successful candidate for this job will be notified if a TWIC will be required and will then be responsible for enrolling and obtaining a TWIC prior to their hire date.
