    Do you have a history of job hopping? That’s a big thing that will reject an application. I think no more than 3 jobs in the past few years. Maybe it’s 5 years. Can’t remember.

    we should really begin with how much experience if any he currently has..... original post just stated he's been lurking since 2018 not that he has been driving since then or before or after.

    I had three years in my last job alone, which was 100% hazmat- and they told me that wasn't long enough for them, and I've been doing this since '12 with no incidents or accidents.

    It also took them well over a month to give me a firm answer as to why they wouldn't hire me, which I found pretty unprofessional.

    Most of SW stuff isn’t even hazmat. The only hazmat they maybe have is a few boxes of caulking/adhesive type stuff. When I deliver for them even that’s not hazmat it’s limited quantity.

    bologna answer they gave you.

    They’re not the only ones who don’t respond. A lot of these ####ty “driver recruiters” are lazy, unprofessional, and refuse to respond to any attempts to contact them.

    Are you delivering to their stores? I read that the store delivery drivers pull a lot of paint which is hazmat.
