    contact hire right, and place a rebuttal.

    some companies do not subscribe to DAC, so you should be able to gain employment any time now.

    I already contacted HireRight and DriverIQ and requested a dispute, the process takes 30 days and I need to find work ASAP. Werner wasn't running me right at all and more often than not had me sit at truck stops rather than send me home, keeping me close to broke.

    well then, just go door to door at the companies near you?

    many may not even subscribe to DAC/HireRight.

    good luck.

    I met a guy this spring who works at the flea bag hotel where W.E. keeps their victims for the Allentown, Pa. orientation. He said EVERY night they get 40 new attendees, and after 2 days more than half of them are gone.
    Beat the streets and find a ride at a company without a recruiting dept.

    I think unfortunately as far as I have been able to find here in Buffalo, is that anyone recruiting wants a minimum 1 full year experience, and I have 4 verifiable months with Werner.

    OH no. Do not sign a #### thing.

    Your CDL A your ### is free to go wherever you like.

    Don't fall for the overabused sob story and how they would like to work with you. While raking in thousands of dollars off you like a drug mule? I don't think you are that ... desperately stupid to think you will sign such a poisonous contract.

    Reduced to real simple terms any company can understand even the Chicago ones. I don't sign *&^%. Take it or leave it.

    I was left in a real bad place getting cut right before Xmas. I'm a stones throw from destitute if I can't find work soon.

    It's been over a month.

    Then file unemployment against the company that makes you sit and then have no money to take care of your personal needs to be adequately able and willing to work when they do have work for you. I went after a major company via Maryland's Labor against them for starving me out and case law has been established for a long time that you do not abuse employees who need that income in order to be in good shape to do the work well without being a liability to safety and a host of other problems too numerous to get into here. And I won against that outfit.

    I usually tell my employers that need to be told by me that if they ever make me sit more than 34 hours without a specific and legit explaining pertaining as to why I am sitting. For example I was told to find a hotel room near Texarkara Texas or Arkansas a real bomb of a town for a christmas week off. Why? They had two coils that will go out from the area to the Lancaster reciever in PA for the following week. All I needed to do is cooperate and wait that 5 day period. And how, that hotel was a good one as was the truckstop staffers too across the street that year. They were good hosts knowing that I have to sit a while and spend a little money. They paid me over a thousand cash beyond normal payroll for my trouble. So it was a time to party. They don't know about that rental car I took into Houston for a couple of days visiting a dear friend of mine that week too. She made it a wonderful time. Just not with the truck or hotel for a day or three. HA.
