    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.
     
    Woodys, PE_T and speedyk Thank this.

    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.
