    Were you able to find a job after an accident and how long the accident stayed on your Mvr?

    I know one guy who had some years of experience and got a rollover. He found a job at basically a mom and pop and he's doing alright. Probably will have to keep his nose clean for a while to get another job. He's just one of those accident prone people.

    Accident prone?

    Perhaps careless and reckless.

    If you're from Florida, Florida Beauty Express in Miami will probably give you a second chance.

    One driver from Tampa had a rollover in a tanker. He was fired and Florida Beauty Express hired him.
    He had a choice of running to California every week or running regional around Florida. He chose Florida regional.

    I don't know. One new cdl grad there did a team run from Miami to California to New York & back to Miami and made $1740.00
    I don't know how the regional drivers do.
    They run hard; no goofing off at truckstops.
