Hiring a convicted felon

by Amrin
(Ontario, canada)

I have a smuggling charge from 2002. I will be eligible for pardon in 1 and half years.I have been gainfully employed since 2003 and have been driving a Taxi for past 5 years.


Licensing Commission gave me a break getting a Taxi license regardless of my criminal record. I have recently obtained Truck License. i am wondering if truck company such as Bison will hire me with that record?

Hervy has a number of posts on "Life As A Trucker.com" that can offer you additional guidance, moreover. Please avail yourself of those resources. I posted the earlier response. 10-4?

Unfortunately, "smuggling" is a disqualifyer for either a TWIC or Hazmat endorsement both of which the vast majority of trucking companies will require you to either have or obtain. There are a few companies out there that will still hire you. I would begin with Fleetdirectory.com. Best of luck. 10-4?
