Trucking jobs for felons of course may be a little harder to find but they are out there. I called a few companies just to get an idea of how much variation there was in how trucking companies dealt with felons. I was happy to find out that there was a variety of responses cause this means there is hope for you getting a trucking job.

Having 2 felonies will definitely present an even harder challenge and for some companies, it was a no go automatically. Other trucking companies still said it depended on what the charges were and how long ago.

Schneider even insisted on not responded on whether 2 felonies would automatically disqualify you from becoming a driver, she said she could not answer without knowing the individual circumstances around the felony. (This is a good sign, it means that you have a chance.) That was the Charlotte terminal.

So ladies and gentlemen, I am sorry you are faced with this challenge but do stay strong and keep pressing on. I am very happy that you are actively seeking to do something positive moving forward, just don't let the closed doors discourage you. Some people are going to act like they never made bad choices(MADE MY SHARE!) but they will be reminded of theirs soon enough when someone holds their mistakes from the past against them.

There will be some people like me who understands that people do make mistakes and they will listen to what you have to say about what happened and talk to you long enough to determined if they think you are a different person than you were when you got the felonies.

So be sure you conduct yourself with that in mind. Your attitude is your greatest asset.

Especially if you get an interview with a company. Dress like a preppy college kid and be sure to express your acknowledgment of having made mistakes. Let it show that you have matured and learned from those mistakes and have no desire to continue down that path. (you can throw in, "All I need is a 2nd chance to prove it. I hope that people will realize that we all have made mistakes and give me that 2nd chance.")

Keep in mind sometimes there are guidelines that hiring people must follow so don't take it personal if they give a quick no to your interest.

Just stay positive and keep knocking on doors and call those trucking companies job.

Also if you go to a trucking that gives you a try be sure to come back and list it here so others will have a lead on where to apply to get hired and get on with their trucking career into a positive future.

Good luck and thanks for dropping by. Let me know if there is a way that I can help you further. Make sure you also read this page and try some of the advice before you leave the site.
