    Most companies look at felonies on a case by case basis. Some have time limits, such as no felonies within last 5 yrs. or whatever they want to use.
    Either way, you won't have any problems finding a decent job.

    Wow so many responses. Alright! New leads! Thanks a bunch. This is beginning to feel surreal. Like, a company could really give me a shot to drive for them. You really have no idea what this means to me. This is going to be life changing for me.
     
    Coffey and Chinatown Thank this.

    This dry van outfit in Ft. Worth hires new cdl school grads.
    Doesn't have anything about felonies, just about traffic tickets or wrecks.
    120 truck outfit.

    The great thing is that I am having my school paid for by a government grant. But, I’ll definitely check them out.

    When I looked in Freymiller’s website, it seemed like they were only hiring drivers with experience.

    That sounds like exactly the type of company that would be good for me start with.

    Plenty more company names if you need them; keep us informed.
    Probably a dozen more at least that hire felons.

    As soon as you start school, submit job applications. Don't call first, submit the online application first. The companies will contact you if your application looks ok.
    Don't wait until graduation to submit job applications; submit them on the first day of school.
     
    Coffey Thanks this.
