    So I used to work at Werner. I had three incidences and they fired me. Two of them were not my fault but obviously I know that does not matter now no one will hire me. Is there anything I can do besides wait three years

    I already tried applying to 4 places they all tel me the same thing "you have to driver somewhere for 6 months no accidents then we can hire you" how if no one will hire me

    Don't worry, we'll find a driving job for you.
    How much experience do you have?
    Which companies denied you a driving job?
    Where is your location; state & nearest city or town?
    What is showing on your MVR and DAC?

    You may have to go with a1099 company.
    In the meantime apply with National Carriers.

    So, which 2 were not your fault? Because the first two you listed were clearly your fault.
    So was the third, if you did hit her mirror.
     
    SoulScream84 and Concorde Thank this.

    so technically the mailbox was my fault because I didn’t get out and look my trainer was in the phone outside “spotting me” and let me remind you this is my 2nd ever time reversing I was fresh out school and he was telling me I’m good to keep going while he was on the phone and I asked him are u sure I look like I’m close and he’s like your fine hurry up “hand gesters” so I said ok and I hit the mail box and just tipped it didn’t even damage it bad but regardless my company said that I should have got out and looked myself even if my trainer said I was good

    2nd incident I got stuck in the grass because there was a bunch of construction equipment blocking the door and there was wood with nails sticking out and I asked them to move it and they said they couldn’t and that “all the other truck drivers can do it” this store was a new store it wasn’t even open to customers anyways I got stuck in the grass spun out and they said I did property damage to the grass

    3rd incident I had no idea where this came from but a lady said I hit her side mirror (another semi) at 2am which I don’t rember anything like that happening at all and there was an investigation and they said there was no damage at all to my truck or trailer just her mirror so they still ended up paying her out

    I asked my safety if any of these incidents would go on my record he said no they wouldn’t they would just be for that company and that I should appeal it anyways tho and I didn’t bc I thought it wouldn’t go on my record but obviously it did
