getting hired by a trucking company with a felony record

Anthony, the best thing for you to do man is call about 50 trucking companies to get a feel for what they are willing to go for currently.

Most companies want your felony to be at least 3 to 5 years old but there really is one way to find out for sure.

Good luck man and keep your head up don't let the challenge stop your stride. Remember ever door that closes is only that much closer to one that is kept open to give you a chance to prove yourself.

While your knocking on those doors let it show in your eyes (your attitude) that you deserve that second chance eventually someone will notice.

That's if you go forward with trucking or anything else you decide to do.

Let us know how things work out for you Anthony.

Later,
Hervy
