    Yeah, they don’t cut it all off, just a little off the back, they’ll blend it in and you won’t be able to tell.

    Most application ask for all jobs within the past x number of years. Leaving some out will look shady. They'll probably find out about them anyway, or at least ask him to explain the gaps.

    Why are you worried about a HF test? Not clean?
    If you have a tendency to consume some of the unnecessary ####, you have no place in this industry.

    As usual, you've awakened a giant, Chinatown, but let's back up the trolley some. Used to be, switching jobs was no big deal, in fact was almost encouraged among your buddies, but today, 6 jobs in a relatively short time is a red flag for any company today. Insurance just won't allow it. Looks bad, and if you've had 6 jobs, what makes you think #7 is going to be the one? It sounds awful, but it's almost better to fake a new name and say you are starting from scratch than to give the new employer a list of all their competitors you've tried to work for. You'll have a snowballs chance in Cuba getting hired. Good luck, pal.

    There are a lot of trucking companies that look at how many TRUCKING jobs you have recently had. But you don't even have a CDL yet so some of them may not be so strict with the number of non trucking jobs. With the virus screwing jobs up over the last year+ I'm thinking you should be able to get into something decent.

    Bull####. If he's 4 months clean and stays that way then no prob. What he did with those disco biscuits in 1976 is irrelevant.
