Default Im on probation..Am I screwed?

I am on probation for somthing I did in 2000. Im in school now and will have CDLs by the 21st. NO ONE will touch me being on probation even though I have already been told I can travel any where. Does anyone know of a company that will hire a good hard working man on probation?

A lot depends on what you did. If it's some thing minor than you can have your pick of bottom feeder Co. if it's major then you may not have any choice, there's a seat for every ass you just have to find it. I know it's to late now but if you'd checked in here first you'd know what your chances where before going to school. BOL

PS in this biz a "minor" drug bust is MAJOR

How much longer will you be on probation? It has already been 10 years. The offense will also have an impact on who may give you a job. Some carriers might be apprehensive about hiring someone who is on probation due to the driver having to check in with their probation officer. Carriers cannot guarantee to get a driver back at a certain time, especially starting out. If you had experience it might be easier to find a carrier. I think that you will need to keep making phone calls.

The offences was poss/with intent marij, cocaine. I dont have to report. I just call in once a month. Its do damn frustrating that somthing I did as a teenager (Im almost 30 now) is stopping me from providing for my family. If we all had our teenage years follow us around we'd all probably be in trouble. I served 5 years in prison, have paid all my fines, taken over 60 successfull drug screes ($15 a pop), and havent had so much as a speeding ticket since my release in 06. I just wonder at what point am I deemed worthy of moving on?

Im not sure what is major, but I didnt have any trafficing charge, the marij was less than a pound, and the cocaine was less than a ounce. Real small fry stuff.

Small fry to you but if you have that stuff on you while piloting an 80K pound battering ram, it's a big deal. Not saying you still do it, but that's how companies look at it per their insurance. Insurance says who they can hire or not hire.

Nope, not all of us.

I posted this thread hopeing for some good advice. Not Holier than thou responces. I guess Mr Ford never did any wrong in his lifetime. I have never been guilty of doing anything in a vehicle.

if my teenage years followed me then it wouuld be all over, You did your time now you just need to prove yourself and that is going to be the hard part... You said less then an pound of pot yea thats not to much but it is enough to show intent, I did however have to laugh when you said the coke was less then an ounce "real small fry stuff" in the world I grew up in an 8 ball was enough to send you to jail for many years your talking less then an OZ how much?? 27 grams?? then the law thinks about how much you can step on that and turn the oz into two.. as a kid you knew the game we all did we just never thought to look into the future, I am fighting the very same battle my father faught with me with my own 15 year old and I fear it is going to take a huge screw up likes yours and ones I had to wake her up.. I wish you luck dude, dont give up and return to the bull**** lifestyle sooner or later someone will give you a shot and if you seem as sorry as I think you are you will turn out to be one of the best employees of the company that gives you a chance..
