    Default No on will hire me !!!!!

    " I just finished truck driving school and paid $4000.00 for it, and now no one will hire me. The school and the recruiters told me that my DUI that is two years old won't be a problem in getting a job driving the big rigs. This has been my dream since I was a little kid !!! "

    Did you try asking an owner operator for a job? Maybe one who hauls nursery stock and other niche products. I bet they would be ready to give a new recruit like you a job. That DUI thing. Doesn't mean anything.
    Don't trust anybody. Especially that guy in the mirror.

    Don't worry. Write a nice letter to the jodge and explain how this is an impediment to your future career. Most jodges will show compassion and overlook your youthful indiscretion.

    That's what I heard anyhow.

    Shouldn't be a problem Diesel! A couple of DUIs are par for the course in an industry where consumption of alcoholic beverages within the workplace is completely legal and even encouraged. At least according to CAD regulatory, legal and morality expert Golfhobo. Lest we forget Golfhobo's advice to the newcomers on CAD........

    "Having alcohol in your truck WHILE OFF DUTY, is not a violation! So, kick back with a SIX in the cooler and watch your movies."~Golfhobo

    Nothing like being well informed.

    BigDiesel:

    I suggest that you contact "The Federal Marshall" and explain to him that a friend spiked the 14 Cokes that you drank in 2 hours time without telling you. The cop that stopped you had no right to violate your civil liberties by requiring you to take a sobriety test, and The Federal Marshall has straightened out more than a few cops and DOT Nazis in his time.

    The fact that this is your first DUI, and the fact that the offense will be over ten years old in just another eight years or so shouldn't be a problem. Most trucking companies are very understanding about such unfortunate circumstances.

    Well it might be tough as alot of companies won't hire someone with a DUI for insurance reasons. It might cause them to have to pay more money to an insurance company.

    Another possible reason is that a DUI makes it real tough for a driver to go into Canada if the need should arise. It can be done but you need to get a queens pardon (send them money and they will let you in) or some paperwork from the courts that would allow you into canada (again more money)

    I never ever had a DUI in my life or even and open container in a motor vehicle violation but I do know many that have.

    I was in a local truck stop having lunch the other day when I over heard a conversation between a fellow customer and an employee who worked at the truck stop. The worker told the customer that he had 3 DUI's.

    Thatís baby *****!! Just pathetic, I have a friend with 7 DUIís and he received two in one week. Not to mention him leading Illinois state troopers on a high speed pursuit across I-70 in his kenworth when he still had a license. And donít think not having a license anymore is going to stop him from driving and drinking.

    I know a guy who got 2 DUI's in ONE DAY! He was arrested once and the second time later that night trying to retrieve his car.
    If you can't explain to a 5 year old what you're doing, than you don't know what you're doing.
