    So damaging other peoples property isn't doing anything wrong? Sorry, anytime you hit something it's a big deal.

    Change your attitude, realize even something "minor" isn't. Also realize that 2" scratch likely cost the company upwards of five grand. Replacing hoods isn't cheap.... You either need to realize that you messed up, or get out of the industry.

    Another point, DAC is only a report. When companies that don't use DAC call to verify employment like they are legally required to do, they will be told about your wrecks then, so you might as well list them on the app when asked. And yes they are wrecks.

    I wasn't going to say anything but I can't help myself. "Haven't done anything wrong"? You had those "incidents", I wouldn't call them accidents, but just the same those were all avoidable. That's what companies and their insurance companies are going to see. And while many prospective employers may let those go, most won't.
    You best bet is to stay away from large companies as many smaller outfits don't use dac. But they will be checking with your past employers. Good hunting.

    I’m going to Echo Posts 12 and 13. You can’t out run your history, not in this world today! Just the way it goes! And blaming DAC is not going to help you either.
