2 Trucking companies that may hire recent felons

by Jerry R. W
(Palmdale CA)

I believe I found two trucking companies that hire felons.

I was released 7 months ago and have been looking for a trucking job. Only to be turned down. A rehabilitation job counselor gave me two companies to call and said they don't care about your past. So I called and sure enough all she wanted was my cdl info to see if my driving record was insurable.

She told me to call her tomorrow and if my driving record was clean I got the job. She says she hires felons to give second chances. I'll post tomorrow and tell you what happened and will post the name and number of both felon friendly companies.

Oh by the way they are located in LA CALIF.

Try Schneider. I had a friend with a felony, who drove for them, and he said it was not a problem, they hired him anyway. They may train you for "free," if you sign a contract for a couple years to drive for them. Let us know how it goes

Check out Schneider. They may provide training if you sign with them for 2 years. I had a friend, who had a felony, who said they hired him no problem. Tell us how it goes.

Regarding a very hard worker and has a high school diploma and a certificate in welding and carpentrey NEW
by: Anonymous


I think they need to give people chances that had been in prison a chance of getting there CDL'S unless they been charged with Rape or Murder then they shouldn't really have a chance but someone that has been out and has had there last one in 2000 should be able to get a chance at getting there CDL'S so if you guys know a trucking company that will give someone a chance in getting there CDL'S please let me know thanks a lot and my best regards go out to you all.

Life after prison is a factor NEW
by: Mr. Shantell Dunbar

If people would realize that felons have been threw trouble. And we now know what it feels like to go threw it. Most of us have learned that life can be hard and adding prison to it makes things even harder. We only want a chance to redeem ourselves I have more in my life now than I had when I went to prison. And that changes things alot. Don't give up!!!

ten years NEW
by: Anonymous

I have two felonies: aggravated assault in 1992, and escape in 2004. I have been told that my felony from 2004 is the problem, and that I will have to wait until 2014 to get a job. It is possible that the charge from 2006 is the big problem.

Covenant NEW
by: Josephine

I just want to say that if you have any type of drug conviction it is really hard to get hired. My husband has two misdemeanors posession of drug paraphernalia one in 97 and one in 2006.
He has been hired with Covenant has driven over $6,000 miles been two 15 states was nearing the end of his training only to be sent home.
Covenant wanted the court record which he gave them, then they called him to say they only allow one drug charge per lifetime! If we can get court paperwork in the next six days to say he was not in his car then he can go back. We are so disappointed one was 17 years ago and the other 7 years ago my husband doesn't even smoke Marijuana anymore and hasn't since his last arrest.
So we are back to square one and filling out any and every application.
If is this hard for misdemeanors I dred to think what it like for felons.
