    Hello guys and girls,

    I'm a recent grad coming out of trucking driving school and my mvr is not all that great. I have 3 speeding tickets that I got last year. Two of them are 15 over in June and one is 10 over in november. I have three accidents on there also. One is from 2013, the second is from 2016, and the third one is from 2017. Are there any second chance companies out there that will take a chance on me. I dont care what company it is, I just wanna get my foot in the door and show that I'm a hard worker. I know my options are very slim.

    Where is your location?
    Those two 15 over are the main problem.

    I'm from Tennessee; near Nashville. Born & raised there.
    Apply online with Carolina Cargo - www.carolinacargo.com
    May not work though with those two 15 over tickets, but try anyway.
    Also, some drivers in your situation have found driving jobs on Craigslist. They made dozens of phone calls, left dozens of phone messages, submitted dozens of applications, and found a job within days.

    I was terminated from Schneider for a safety violation about 2 yrs ago.... are there any companies that would take me? That is the only bad mark against me.

    Two 15's pluses are a death in this industry.

    You are going to have to find a way to stop that speeding for three years.

    A workaround might be with a much smaller outfit that runs maybe a dump truck or two or even a small trailer on it. That really does not care what your record is.

    The one thought is to be very careful every day you go out there. Don't let anyone bully you into breaching our laws.

    Where is your location?
    Western Express is a 2nd chance company and hires in 48 states, but there may be more companies if we know your location.

    Schnieder doesn't terminate for "A" safety violation. To help we need to know what all is on your record. Not to be judgemental, but to know which companies to point you to.
