My name is lathan inichelson. I been driving trucks from 2000 to 2008. In 2008 i worked for a company name ready pac inc, company driver.

One night after i got to work, i got a phone call my cousin was killed in car wreck. On that same night I got a call that my fire captain died going to a fire call. To top all of that off, I got a call that my wife have cancer.

All of this happened on the same night. I should have gone home but i did not because it was too late to replace me so i worked.

I pulled that wrong that night 6 states after i got to my stop i saw i had an empty trailer, i left the yard with. When i got back i was let go. they no what to me that night and did not care. and let me go.

I was not in the right state of mind that night. so things happen i can not take it back. so i tried to deal with it. after that in 2009 i got a DUI so i did not deal with it to well.

On top of that i had taken a drug test and failed. I do not do drugs. When I got home that night me and my wife went out had a good time. Did not know someone had put something in my drink.

So that Monday I had to go back to the yard. they tell me to take a piss test i do all the time. do you think i would take a piss test if i no im hot. Knowing my wife is sick with cancer. so that is it.

I miss driving and hope that someone will understand things happen that you can not control and help me out with driving job.

I also am a fire police officer so why would i do something like that to myself. things was good up to that.

I am sorry and need help. I am finding it hard to get work. I am geting help to have it takeing off my dvr, until then i still need to make a living.

Can someone please help me. I am a veteran(USMC) thank you hope to hear from someone my phone number is 215-481-9360 my cell is 267-234-4722

getting hired with a lot of stuff in your past NEW

Hello Lathan,

Man, you have a lot to overcome. Most people are not going to believe all of that. Make sure you have a resume and cover letter and be sure to highlight your strong points.

Schneider, Swift, Gordon, LandSpan are all hiring in Philly which is not far from you.

However, you might have a better chance going for one of the oilfield trucking jobs in Pennsylvania.
