2nd Chances For Felons and some trucking companies that may hire them

by Lisa
(Covington, Ga.)

Hello,

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..
Also, check out these websites:

(These websites allow you to do multiple applications at one time)

Also, if you have a problem on your DAC report. You can do a dispute with usis (also known as DAC) at

I am a felon no sex charges nothing out their did what I had to do to survive I regret it got my class a cdl license about 4 years ago . Spent a summer at a college had to rent a room in a apartment to get it was not a cheap thing to do.

What is tough is not be bale to trust employers I have watched so many people get thrown away because jobs can not pay a consistant wage this leads to mental illness and divorce without a shadow of a doubt and it leads to mental illness the proof is over whelming I have stacks of it along with people that have dies killed and done horrible acts to simply live.


Personally I strive to educate myself and strive for more. I hope other felons do like wise

CR England is full of it! NEW
by: Steven

Here's WHY I say this:
1. When I was 1st released (in '02), I called them, and they said I had to be out 5 years!
2. I waited 5 years, and when I call them up, they said: "I had to be out for 7 years!"
3. I called back, 2 years later. And was told: "The Law cannot allow a Company to hire a felon for Ten Years!"
4. At my Ten year mark, I called them up, and guess what they said? " You're ineligible due to the amount* of felonies you have!"
When I asked why didn't they tell me this at the beginning? They said" We don't have any records of you having called before!" Oh really? That's how I had the direct line (Extension) to the recruiter AND His name?
5. I finally gave up going there myself, but got a close friend in. And they kicked him out just because he was unable to establish a "required" work-history time frame... And the guy was barely 19, and had been in High School, then from there he went to Vo-Tech training. Once done with that, he went to live with a friend because his Mother passed, and the guy put him to work with him... Just so happened that it was a tree-trimming company, and he was paid cash... So, no 'record' could be established sufficient enough to meet CR E's "requirements!"
* I was wrongfully convicted in 1988 for 6 felony burglaries. Hence the "Too many" felony convictions."
They [say] that it depends on the amt of convictions? Bull!
Never mind that I can be bonded by The Govt and that they can get PAID by the Govt to put me to work... They STILL rejected me! So to hell with their them and their LIES!

ex-con just trinning to get a break. NEW
by: Anonymous

I was charged with something that only a snake could understand. This charge has been on my record for over 20yrs and I still can't get anyone to help. I tried CRST they said it was a life time disquailcation. I did'nt kill anyone or used a knife or a gun. Right now, I am waiting to hear from some carriers. And hopefully one of them can help. People make mistakes and sometimes other people get hurt but, after a person does their time, and becomes a good citizen..I think it's time to give them a break. You know the way I see it is that if my higher power can forgive me and give me a scond chance, then why can't these trucking compaines do it? I understand that they have a big insurance to pay out. Other than a moving volation I've been clean. Keep on, Keepn' on.

by: Anonymous

Reading all the comments about finding a job makes me see how hard it is to find a job out there. It seems that all the want to know about is if your convicted of felony. No details of the crime or who you are now as a person. well i'm willing to share what i did in hopes that i can get pass the question have you been convicted of a felony. serious employers please read on. in 2003 i was charged with murder 2nd degree. In 2006 i was convicted of it . the dude i killed was my child molester. long story short . I ended up going through that with him. Me along with another person called the police and because there wasn't enough evidence he got off. Something i was a witness to that he had been doing for years. I'm not going to get into what he did to me after he got off after i pressed charges on him, but i couldn't finish school. after that he was harassing me through out the years. I got tired of taking all his crap ended up over his house because at 18 i didn't know better. I went to him to stand up for my self and he ended up getting killed. I received a 10 year sentence. i served my time, but i can't even get a job at mcdonalds . Going back to prison is not an option for me. If you don't believe me about my case i can put you in contact with my state attorney who will vouch for me in miami ,fl. just email me underthelex@gmail.com . if you know of a trucking company that really will hire a felon with no training, i only have one on my record. please e-mail me the information.

Felon With CDL No Job - http://turtlepondpoems.blogspot.com/ NEW
by: Anonymous

I took a CDL course in another state in 2010. I had to make a huge sacrifice by relocating to get this CDL license and stay for 2 months to be proficient in driving 2 types of trucks and learn all the maneuvers.

All the ex-offenders I have ever known in Florida get divorced in a matter of weeks or months and I have not seen any married no longer than 4 years due to housing bans which force families out of low income housing areas due to have a felon return back with their family and I am talking about people that are harmless .

FREE MONEY :

http://www.classactionrebates.com/

The link above has helped my not to survive but get little check that sometimes amount to a $1,000 total after a year. Their is no registration just be honest when filing out forms on this site.

Dont give up look at Painting Unions. If you have a strong back companies like Selcat and other Electrical Union can use you to climb poles and provide you training and a datable and liveable income without a livable wage people become unhappy and life becomes unpleasant also pray. Our situation is serious and critial considering jobs are in decline and paying wages that many grown men work in 1995. People can not live on $7.50 an hour.

http://turtlepondpoems.blogspot.com/


Also think about starting your own business. Go to libraries learn about making a Business plan look for free templates. Seek funding apply for jobs that you know can support a family and give you a sense of dignity and happiness. In this environment you need a decent paying jobs that can atleast empower you to rent in a ghetto.

Need a second chance in life NEW
by: Jason Sweatman

Both me and my best friend Jeremy Coon are roomates and have some felonies between us. We are both almost 40 years old now and when we were younger we have made some mistakes that we are not proud of. We both look at life from a much more serious angle and want/need a second chance in life to possibly attend truck driving school together and obtaining a job thereafter as team drivers once we get enough experience under our belt. We both have clean driving records with no at fault accidents ever .We are single men that don't mind being gone from home for long periods of time, and we both love to travel. This type of employment would be ideal for our lifestyle and would be more rewarding than any other type of employment. Please contact jason_sweatman@live.com

can anyone help me with ideas? NEW
by: mike

Hello, i live in iowa. i have a misdemeanor on my crim record. and on my driving i hit a deer but wasnt ticketed, and had one speeding ticket for 5 mph over about a year ago. CRST is giving me the run around. I was told that as long as it wasnt a felony that it should be ok. Now there saying they arent sure. I dont have my cdl. I have no family or kids and i love traveling so i really want to do OTR as my father and uncle did it for years. Does anyone know a company that will train and hire someone with a misdemanor on thier record. I have no felony just a misdemeanor that was in the past year than one about 2 or 3 years ago for receiving to much unemployment and not paying it back in time. If anyone knows a company that will train me to get my cdl and get me a job please let me know as i am desperate to get started. I did just apply for CR england tonight too incase crst does say no. I would prefer to drive solo after the training process but I really just want to drive OTR right now asap. I have a email if i can post it of jacksonrain3 at gmail. Thanks!

Still Struggling To Make It. NEW
by: Richard

Hello,
I feel everyones pain, and it is hard when sociaty makes you dis functional. Because of your past situations. I have a number of felonies,starting from 1984 for a crime that i never committed, but my sons mother lied on me to keep me for taking him in a custody fight. I been having my CDL's since 1991 i have been working some of the most crappie jobs because no one wants to touch a felon. I was again in 2006 placed on Probation because i left one state to live a better life, and come to find out my parole wasnt over, and i failed to register. I really find that their isnt a brake for us. The more we try to become productive in socity to change there is always someone wanting to put their foot on our head. But i say this lets keep trying and lets, not give up. I will continue to look,and i know that there is someone out there that will take a chance.

Veteran VRAP NEW
by: ssaun

The new VRAP program for ex-offenders Veterans has funding and programs that are better than the Pell and WIA Grants. As far as specific Carrier names, see your VRAP recruiter. I know all the driver operators with Coastal, (driving tankers to Luke AFB), etc. all have misdemeanors, not sure about felonies. Don't give up. If you want to get out driving, many companies hire felons if you have knowledge and experience.

Recent Grad w/ Felon NEW

I was released from prison July 4th, 2008 I was convicted of armed robbery February 19th of 2008. I graduated from an accredited truck driving school March of this year. I have tried every website I can find and its always not enough experience or my conviction is not old enough. I have found a company that says the will hire me in February when my conviction is 5 years old. I need to be trained before going OTR. I can't wait til February. I need a job now trucking school bills are still coming even if I don't have a job. Does anyone have any company that will give me a 2nd chance.

Felons: NEW
by: Anonymous

I have a friend that drives for a company that hires Indepenant Contractors. He said they did not ask about any arrest history any where on the application. You have to sign a 10-99 form and pay your own insurance and lease ($300.00) a week, but he still gets a weekly check between $800 & $1200 It is giving him a chance to get back into trucking and gain recent otr experience. I know of numerous companies that have offered to get him back behind the wheel if he can get six months recent experience and that is all he is using this company for. If you live close to Fontana CA. Look for a company called Best 1 Transport. It is for the most part all teams and and mostly SO. Cal. to N.J. N.Y or W.V. and back to SO. Cal. Hope this helps.

Response to a 3 year old DUI
by: Lisa

Try Carolina Cargo! They accept most everyone that has a CDL. It will be hard to find a job in this industry until the DUI is at least 5 years old. I am sorry. I know that's not what you wanted to hear. But if you try the websites in my article you may come up with something. Another good website to go to is hammerlanejobs.com with only 1 application to fill out it sends your application to 750 companies. Try it. Let me know how your journey comes along

What about a driver with a dui that is more than three years old? I have been in touch with some companies that have said that they did not have a problem with a dui, but they could not hire me because I don't have a year recent driving time. Is there any companies that you know of that will work with situation? Thanks.
