    Hi,

    I am a recent CDL school graduate (8/20/10) and I would like to know if anyone can give me some advice on trucking companies who will hire someone with a previous DUI. It is a little over 5 years old. I am having trouble finding employment due to this. I am looking for an OTR Solo job. Thank you for your time.

    You need to work for somebody that only cares about the last 3 years.....

    That will eliminate most larger companies.........

    USA truck will only take the last five years into consideration they told me yesterday, I'm in WNC and they have no openings here. Have openings for regional in the northeast. A guy in the truck stop yesterday told me Swift will... I have 2 dui over 20 years and have been turned down by at least five of the biggies.

    I don't know of any of the bigger companies that will take a guy with two DUI's. Most companies I know of want at least five years from the end of all sanctions, paying fines etc for the DUI.
