    Any other former FFE drivers out there who left before KLLM took the reins having trouble applying elsewhere due to KLLM/FFE refusing to verify employment? A former coworker and I have both run into this, with KLLM staff basically telling us that they will not verify past employment. They're spicing it up a bit though, giving the impression that they could, but they're extending the middle finger instead. Also, someone has very specifically mentioned that they won't "do anything for you pain in the a.. Northeast drivers".

    Nice. Any of you who stayed on, wish ya luck with these clowns.

    Wonder why they would do this.Some employers will take a recent check stub for proof.

    If you have log books, check stubs, settlement sheets or even a letter from your former dispatcher would work.

    I've got logs, pay stubs, direct deposit records, etc. I'm also planning on getting a copy of my DAC/hire right/whoever they are now report. My coworker isn't so lucky, his ex threw all his stuff out. It's just strange to me that they would be as antagonistic as they are.

    Anyone currently there and thinking of leaving, save all supporting documentation just in case it isn't just us Northeasters they have a problem with.

    This burns me up along with recruiting tactics.

    Drivers, megas use DAC so your records are there, and you have pay stubs and I hope log books for the tax man. That should do it......

    As far as I know only the HIRING carrier must attempt to verify your past. A response from the former is not law if the carrier retains proof of attempting to verify. I'll hit the books and see if I can pin it down.......

    One of the reasons KLLM is pissed is ...you were bought...indirectly. Seated trucks are a part of the negotiated price...so they bought a seated truck that will now become unseated.......

    It's amazing how carriers just don't get it..........

    Here you go:

    Subpart C - Background and character

    [h=3]§391.23 Investigation and inquiries.[/h] Question 1: When a motor carrier receives a request for driver information from another motor carrier about a former or current driver, is it required to supply the requested information?
    Guidance: Generally no. See §382.405, however, for requests pertaining to drug and alcohol records.
    Question 2: May motor carriers use third parties to ask State agencies for copies of the driving record of driver-applicants?
    Guidance: Yes. Driver information services or companies acting as the motor carrier’s agent may be used to contact State agencies. However, the motor carrier is responsible for ensuring the information obtained is accurate.

    Wouldn't checking HireRight mean your driving employment is verified?

    Did they say they are using TheWorkNumber.com? I have a couple of past employers who will flatly refuse to verify employment. I indicate the URL and employer codes on the application, but that's about all I can do.

    Oh I haven't worked there since August, and my coworker quit 3 months prior to that. I find it somewhat unbelievable that all of FFE's records have vanished into thin air, especially since they still owe me a W2.

    Edit. We both have our own trucks and are in the process of taking them to Mercer. Just by way of explanation....
