    Instead of posting one by one, you could always ask about the drugs, hair testing, and felony hiring in one post, not company specific. Just ask, who will hire someone who used drugs a few months ago, has a felony conviction from <insert year here> for <insert offense here>, and I live in <insert city and state here>. I would like to flatbed, refer, dry van, bed bug, or tanker.
    People here want to help, but some companies will hire felons depending on the charge, yet will hair test you, others won't hire felons but will only ask for a urine. You need to give all the background or it will get confusing.

    Man, why dont you go work at McDonald's for a couple years, get yourself clean and serious about this heavily regulated industry, and then come back and start your career?

    Get high and jump behind a CMV steering wheel, then kill someone...youll be in prison for more than a decade...

    This is not a job to take lightly.

    Im not trying to be rude, but these same questions get asked daily on truckers report. Which companies hair test? How long does a hair test look back? What if i shave every hair on my entire body?....,

    I just wish people took trucking slightly more serious....because it has the ability to take everything from you in a heartbeat...

    they have a training program but to get hired you have to go to an approved school and they will reimburse the cost of school
    I'm not sure on the felony issue but it might be on a case by case basis

    Use the search function? That's too hard. I want a job pushing a 70 foot, 80000 pound truck through Brooklyn of Boston. ;-)

    The best thing you could do is contact a recruiter/put your app in on the Averitt website. Truth be told, no one here will really know to give you the solid answer your looking for.
