    PI&I Motor Express hires felons and is Teamsters Union.
    Roadtex Transportation is another decent company that hires felons.

    Are you on probation? If you are it will be hard for you to go otr till you're off probation.

    The probation officer can give a waiver to go OTR. Lots of drivers with PI&I Motor Express, Roadtex Transportation, Carolina Cargo are on probation or parole and run OTR.

    You need to be clean 90 days to pass a urine drug test.
    You need to be clean 12 months to pass a hair follicle drug test.
    Some companies do urine test and some do hair follicle test.
     
    James122 Thanks this.
