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 excon a favor and help us get a better image, be the best truck driver, the best person you can be. Have at it.

Sysco and US FOODS hire felons and they pay good! 
pejoge1203 Bobtail Member
My understanding is a few of these are not fun places to work. That is for the people to look up. Trucker Report is a very good place to start.
Chinatown Thanks this. 
None of those companies are good but when your back is against the wall you have to do what u have to do. Sysco n us food drivers make 47k a month. If thats not good enough, i dont know wat is.
pusherman and KingTrucker Thank this. 
Beer companies hire felons too, Id stay away from
them though.
