How to Get started trucking with no experience and a drug charge less than 10 yrs old

I'am a recently graduated driver with no experience, except school. I've been looking for local job near my town and can't find any.

Most of the local company's say i need to get experience atleast 3 months to 6 months before they can hire me. I have a misdemeanor minor poss. class b (cocaine). I was placed on probation for 6 months, I finished my 6 months in 11/07. I havent been in trouble since then.

I Have applied to a few companies like swift,cr england and stevenson. They all tell me they can't hire me because of my misdemeanor it has to be more than 10 yrs.

Do anybody know any companies out there that will give me a break, I would work for any company that could get me started right now. I Live in Mass. Thanks.....

Just gotta keep after it. I had the same exact problem. CRST picked me up so I am sure they will do the same for you. Just keep filling out them apps and also doesnt your school offer you job placement? I know that some schools do, even though that can sometimes be a crock of you know what. One time while I was out on the road I just pulled out my laptop and started looking around the truck stop and going to each truck I saw website and filled out apps that way. If you dont have a truck stop near by there is a website called bubbajunk.com or craigslist will help too. Goodluck and dont give up
