    i hope this will help, it is a bit late i know but i had a rearend collision a month ago and i thought my career was over but by the grace of god, the dot officer and state trooper felt bad for me and neither gave a citation and dot officer did not do the csa report. They both said i was having a bad enough day. There was a report for the insurance. I was terminated and called my company corporate office 3 weeks and was told that by law they could not tell the reason for termination unless it was a dot reportable offense like drugs, leaving the scene or whatnot. In other words if there was no dot report then accident was not recorded. Since both officers didnt cite me, it wont show up on mvr or csa or dac and my former company is not allowed by law to tell anyone why i was terminated. I have 4 interviews next after complete background check has been done.

    Maybe truck driving is not for everyone, and just anyone?

    Most companies have a three year window where they can disclose your safety record to another company, some its longer. It doesn't matter if you got a ticket or not you were still in a company vehicle.

    Carolina Cargo will probably hire you. They bend their hiring rules that are on their website.
    You'll run hard and only make average $500 weekly, but at least can keep your cdl active until you qualify for something better. @bulmack

    Carolina Cargo has been advertising out here on and off for $20hour local jobs. That is in the same area Gordon is pay $14.40. I don't know if it is a bait and switch situation, but I am guessing it is.

    I would still check with them I believe their CSA scores have been in a upswing for the the better.

    Also, if you are employed in a driving position it makes it easier to start with a new company. So as soon as you get to Carolina Cargo you can start applying elsewhere. Remember Home Depot and Lowe's hire drivers to deliver building supplies. Anything to get back into a truck and then go from there.
