    I am just wondering if I have been gaining “verifiable experience”. When I worked in the oil fields, I drove water bottles but I didn’t fill out any type of paperwork other than a getting a ticket signed at the pad showing I worked that day. Is that “verifiable”?

    Currently I am hauling sawdust but there are no electronic logs, and I just turn in the tickets from the plant that I haul the sawdust to that show I’ve taken the loads. Kind of similar to the way I turned in my work in the oil fields. Is this “verifiable experience”?

    Verification basically consists of being able to call your previous employer and seeing that you were a driver when you said you were.

    Oh ok then that’s awesome. As long as it doesn’t involve some type of proof of logs or something then I should be A okay.

    Anything verifiable you got paid for as a driver would work for me. Cash jobs don't fare so well.

    I’ve had two places go bankrupt after I left, and another two got bought out and amalgamated into a larger company. Hard to verify experience with them.

    Paystubs if you don't want them calling your current employer.

    I got told that.

    nah, i only keep several years of my paper logs "just in case", the cops coma knock'n on my door saying i was wanted for murder or something....then i had proof of where i wasn't..

    i figure that by 2025, i'd be too old to be put in jail, so i'll toss them out then.
