    some people probably think this response makes you an azzhole ... but i'll tell you what: i couldn't agree.

    been through this once and sometimes you have to swallow your pride and do what it takes to keep food on the table and the lights on/fridge cold. helps you learn to live without too. anyway, i'm a better person for it. besides, with the economy the way it is today - you'd be lucky to even have a job # mickey's ... just get whatever will give you a check until you can get your #### figured out.

    good luck!

    Stay off the pc, and spend all day even if it is 8hrs long and fill, fill, fill out apps. Hope you get things worked out...

    There are over 300,000 trucking companies in the US. One of them will surely hire you. Some even hire people with dui's. Just keep filling out apps. on the computer, someone will bite. Good luck

    Not everyone subscribes to USIS, look for smaller companies. If your MVR is clean, and you have always done drug tests as required, you should be hireable by someone. Definitely avoid the big companies.

    You also need to learn to avoid those little things as well.

    Also, keep in mind that many companies run credit checks prior to hiring an employee. If your credit history is out of whack, so are the chances of being hired.

    Did you mention to C.R. England that you'd be interested in their lease program? The reason I ask is that those who say they are interested seem to get hired, while those who say they aren't interested in the lease program are sent packing and still owing C.R. England money for whatever C.R.E. does to them while there for a short time, usually weeks.

    IMO, you're jumping out of the pan and into the fire. I hope things work out well for you.
    Please keep us informed.
    I REALLY want to hear a success story from a C.R. England driver, but so far, nobody seems to be able, or willing, to do that. Perhaps you'll be the first.
    I hope so.
    Good luck JB. :biggrin_25519:
