I recently had the pleasure of looking for a job with the double whammy of being a new driver and having a major felony conviction. I got a lot of good advice on an earlier thread I posted (thanks) and eventually did find a job (thanks again). In the process, I made up a list of companies that will hire you with a felon. Some of the entries I couldn't totally verify and am just going on hearsay but most of them I was able to find where they would hire someone with a felony. Being a new driver, I was also interested in what experience they offered, so I added that to the list where I could. I can't vouch for whether any individual company is a good place to work, mainly because...I never worked for any of them. There are people and posts on this forum better able to answer those questions, not me. All I can say is there were a few companies, even in my desperate situation, I decided would be like prison again. One company, Carolina Cargo, will hire anybody at all with a record, but a couple people I know tell me it's a blemish from other employers if they see you worked there; I'm just passing info. Luckily, I found a job with a smaller company and will be on the road forthwith and I feel all warm and fuzzy inside, but I remember how frustrating it can be, so I want to help you out a little here, just do a fellow ex-con a favor and help us get a better image, be the best truck driver, the best person you can be. Have at it.
