CJ Cooper started drug testing our construction employees for per-hire, random, and post-accident 7 years ago. Your staff’s ability to test on short notice throughout Eastern Iowa and on site collection has made CJ Cooper a very affordable option to help us provide a safe drug free work environment. Your on-site testing helps us to keep workers on site working with a short interruption and very little loss of productivity. Your staff displayed professionalism and a great can do attitude.

Tom V – Construction Industry

I receive prompt and courteous attention to my needs. My job, often times, has me running 100 mph in every conceivable direction, so when an issue arises within our drug testing arena, CJ Cooper jumps on it for me. Tracy and the other girls are professional and care about us as a client. Not only do they answer the phone with a smile (I can tell), but they make sure that all my questions are answered to my satisfaction and understanding. To partner with CJ Cooper is a win all the way around!
