    I hadn’t did a full year followed by 2 years off and I had companies lining up to hire me about 4 years ago. Did you have an accident or failed a drug test? There’s something wrong here cause these companies are desperate for anyone that can fog the glass.

    Let me be clear on this

    OK let me be clear on this. I have no tickets no accidents no DUI, no DWI, no failed drug test, no denied to take a drug test, registered with the clearing house, have a passport, 15 years having CDL. I have 11YRS experience doing flatbed step back dry bulk pneumatic food grade tanker and end dump. certified class 1 through 5 forklift driver. I'm not gonna work for just any company. I've never worked for a Mega Carrier, the only thing close to a Mega Carrier I work for with Earl L Henderson out of Salem Illinois and at the time in 2006 I believe it was the only had like 500 trucks so I am very picky I'm gonna go back out on the road I want a stable company I don't wanna company that is in debt I want a company that offers a 401K pays more than 6% I want paid vacations I want paid time off sick pay holiday pay, Healthcare insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance.
    So you say something is wrong. No I'm just not gonna say to anything.

    I think your last sentence summed it up and they're probably doing you a favor. They'd much rather have some new starry eyed kid that they can pull the wool over and threaten with there silly DAC reports

    There are TENS OF THOUSANDS Trucking Companies out there. And you have only applied to ONE? OK.......you may want to expand your search to at least........2 or maybe 3? Or.......come to the realization that this is 2021 and not 1971. Like it or not......everything is internet/electronic these days. The days of walking into a company.....any company....trucking or not.....and filling out a paper application left the planet with the typewriter. There are a $#!+load of great trucking jobs out there. Expand your horizons. Good luck!
     
    JolliRoger Thanks this.
