    There's an app that may help you track your application status. It's called Driver Pulse by tenstreet.

    I called back again. Guess I mist have annoyed them. I was informed the recruiter spoke to me at 12:00 today and told me the application was rejected. Thats news to me.

    Lots of offices are working remotely, or having issues getting work done. Things will be slow. Give them a call back and ask nicely what the status of your application is.

    I have been rejected. No reason given. I was sent the checks they did on me and all that was listed was what I told them about.

    Shame because 53 CPM was the highest rate I was quoted by anyone with a halfway decent reputation. Next best was .50 by Merx Global. I tried looking them up on here but the info was either incorrect or out of date as it was listed as a 1099 job, but the recruiter has told me its W2, so I dont know what to think.

    Again, I've got one year experience. On mobing violation, failure to obey a traffic sign, paid one fine for being overweight on my tandems, and my company got hit while I was driving because they hadby gotten the updated Ifta stickers and registration out to me on time.

    I realise its not a perfect record but is it really that bad?

    Welp that mystery is solved.

    I have 5 incidents on my record over the last year. 4 preventable, 1 non preventable. None were DOT reportable which is all I thought mattered.

    1 failure to obey traffic symbol which resulted in a tow.
    1 tow from a receiver location (tandems went over concrete)
    2 backing incidents in truck stops
    1 backing incident at a reciever due to equipment failure.

    So I'm ####ed. I can not leave my current company.

    There are other companies. Have you checked on Indeed.com? IWX hires for .57 cpm with Hazmat endorsement. I’m not sure how well your record needs to be. Can’t hurt to try. Keep your head up and search for a little while longer. You might find something good.

    Curious. How can that be a mystery? Did your company not discuss those incidents with you?

    I thought the only thing that mattered was whether or not it was DOT reportable.
