2nd Chances For Felons and some trucking companies that may hire them
Iam a recruiter for a Truck Driving School in Atlanta, Ga. We specialize in helping people get their Class A CDL and helping them get placed into a job. If you are someone who wants CDL Training and you have a felony we can help you!
First, you know you have a record. Don't conceal it thinking you are going to get away with it. Tell the school that you are attending or trying to attend. The school should tell you if your convictions will affect your job placement.
If you are honest you will get an honest answer. We place 96% of our students into a job immediately upon placement. Consider that most truckers have something on their record and that if you can just get 1 company to give you a chance and hang in there with that company for 1 year, Your driving experience will then outway your criminal past.
Keep your head up, the national carriers will probably all say "NO" b/c they have to insure you and the cargo. The carriers that do hire felons are usually really strict about your driving record.
Some Companies that may consider hiring felons are as follows:
May Trucking, Ozark Truck Lines, WEL Companies, FFE, Watkins Shepard, Builders, Transportation Company, Schneider Transportation..
