    Man, I am so sorry. I know it's hard but try to keep your head up. Something will turn up, hopefully soon. Good luck to you.

    Sorry to hear that! I'll give you one piece of advice. Do with what you will.
    Ask all these companies that have turned you down for specifics. Get the reason and also ask if time can take these reasons out of play. Then do what you have to in order to get by, but come back to apply again and again if you need to...

    Good luck and Well wishes to you...

    Swift, USX, and Werner said no because of a car accident.
    Stevens and Prime said no because my job history sucks.
    None of these can be taken off the table, they all require the passage of time and that's a luxury I don't have.

    Only Covenant has said yes so far.

    Have you tried PAM or USA truck? You got your training through C1, right? Aren't those the companies that hire from C1?

    Nope. CDL School Menands, NY. $6100+ to learn how to drive automatic trucks. I am still waiting on an answer from TransAm and Superior (local?).

    Pam and USA run autos.

    Might be worth a shot.

    Cool. So does TransAm. I was actually filling out on online app for USA and their app asks for your gaps between jobs first, then when you're done, squaks about the missing time (which should be filled in by your employment history) and I messed it up. I couldn't correct my mistake, so I just closed the browser. I will have to try again later.

    I recommend that you document your work/unemployment history on paper so when you fill out applications you'll have consistency across the board.

    Remember, avoid the leasing with anybody until you have some experience. Many of these companies try to push you into one early by making you have to wait for your own truck. Don't buy into it. Leasing is not mandatory.

    I don't know if they hire in your area but COMCAR industries runs autos. Check them out if you haven't already.

    True they are a little bit up on shifting and double clutching,which is the proper way to shift.I went thru their road test and did double clutch,just to get thru it.However as soon as I hit the road it was back to floating the gears.And floating the gears is something they dont teach you newbees to do in school,it is something you learn on your own later on down the road.I learned it in a famous Boston traffic jam,and from that day forward I never touched the clutch ,just to start and stop.
