    Meat, go see the response I gave re: my son's current experience with Covenant in the other Covenant thread.

    Frankly, if you can't get into one of the top-notch companies, then get in where you can....get some experience with them....then move onto something better. Not every company will take every person. Nor should anyone expect them to.

    No pun intended, but AMEN!

    US Xpress also hires felons, sometimes. One of my students was a felon when I drove for them.

    there are countless posts where truckers wonder why they get a "bum rap" from the public. now we know why. it's the companies that hire felons and morons that help to continue propagating this stereotype.

    in summary: "eff-word"

    I dont believe that having a felony in the past is the reason for the bum rap that the trucking industry has. Its because of the tossing piss bottles on the side of the road, tailgating whatever happens to be in front of you, driving tired, driving illegal, speeding thru school-zones, oh and cant forget about those filthy drivers that would'nt walk outside in the rain because it seems too much like taking a shower.

    I guess your the perfect little angels that never messed up in life huhh?

    I couldnt agree more. The student, who was also my freind befor getting into his truck driving career is a great person. He got into one of those situations of "wrong place at the wrong time". I rather see him on the road than half of the, to quote Austin Powers, "Fat ########" that cant shower, wash their hands after taking a dump on their way to the buffet line, take care of their truck, or what have you.

    Truckers got the bad rap from allowing the comunity we are to get to the lowest cess pool it is currently. I may drive a truck professionally, but I dont classify myself as a trucker just because of that.

    You may not believe that to be the case, but you're not the "general public". You and I both know that stereotypes (felons, tweakers, etc.) along with the things you mentioned are what tarnishes the trucker's image.

    I guess I'm sensitive to this now as I am breaking the news to friends/family that I am moving into this field and having to break down the stereotypes/assumptions one-at-a-time all the time. I got your backs though ... :biggrin_25519:

    im not understanding this-- everything most of you guys have to say about covanent is bad, yet you have drove for them. and then for one of you to say I just cant drive for a godly company sounds like a crock of #### . if you have never drove for them stop acting like you know all--heck maybe you do But they gave me the chance to get my foot in the door and im running with it. And from the people i know that work there, you will get the miles as a team at least 6500 a week and they are happy. So i tend to think if they were that bad they would be no-more. but I am a newbie but i got a brain to think with!! and by the looks of this web site- there is something wrong with every dang company-- some people just cant be happy!!
