    Why do they keep lowering their hiring standards?

    They haven't lowered them. They are just making the process simpler. For example, it used to be if you failed a part of the roadtest or pretrip, you had to wait a year before reapplying. Now i think it's something short like a week or a month. You still need the accident free time as a cdla holder and such.

    I passed the pre trip and road test at Marcy. When it came to background they didnt hire me because one of the trucks I drove in the oilfields was a straight truck within the last 30 months. Even though I been driving 13 years no accidents, 120k log trucks. 105k crude oil tankers etc. They are strict to that "tractor trailer" last 30 months part.
     
    Trucker61016 and VIDEODROME Thank this.

    I thought they did all that checking before you show up for orientation?

    Apparently not. Just preliminary stuff. I did pre trip, road test and dot physical and passed same day. A couple days later they said they couldn't hire me due to driving a straight truck in the last 30 months.
