    Schneider hired me and I had a federal drug conspiracy in 99',and a domestic in 03'. I also passed my background check for both my TWIC & my HAZMAT. I have a passport and fast card, yet the only thing I am waiting on is my rehabilitation papers from Canada so I wont have a hassle crossing the border.
    Time is key! How many years since your last felony/high end misdemeanor and your behavior since being out of prison or off your parole/probation. There are some company's who wont touch you at all, many others will consider you case by case. I was honest in all of my apps. Some where A-holes, many actually referred me to company's who do hire felons.Keep you head and don't let those who judge you grind you down.Prove to them people can change. Good Luck.

    People make mistakes in life and surely deserve a second chance. How anyone could oppose someone willing to work hard to support themselves or their family is beyond me.

    Drug conspiracy? Bah. I'm a strict libertarian and to ME a "drug conspiracy" isn't a crime at all. It is a business transaction. Possession or sale of drugs in itself is a victimless crime.... just like consensual prostitution.

    jur.rajor in springhill tn 65 south outside of franklin tn. cal to tn. weekly a company that proably should not be in business. #931-486-2750 they don't ask and you don't tell. don't check driver record or dac, they do drug test and will cheat on that if you need them to.
