    I read somewhere, either on this site or another trucking forum, that if you leave Old Dominion and even if you give them a 2 weeks notice and work that notice, that nobody can rehire with Old Dominion if you ever leave the company voluntarily.

    Is this common in the LTL world?

    Which LTL companies have a no rehire policy if you voluntarily resign, despite working and putting in at least a 2 weeks notice?

    -Old Dominion
    -UPS
    -Fed Ex
    -Estes
    -R&L
    -XPO
    -YRC

    Any others that I might be forgetting - Which ones have a no rehire policy?

    I would imagine most companies have that policy, and also give hiring managers the discretion to override it.

    UPS Parcel has a rehire status if you leave on good terms.

    That sounds ridiculous that you can't hire back into OD if you work out your notice and leave on good terms.

    Ok guys so I found the thread that I had read a few days ago. I don't like that particular forum that I found it on and I'm not a member there and I don't care to sign up on that site but this is the thread and I'll put the quote in italics if you don't want to click the link, the thread was from 5.5 years ago so it's old:

    Old Dominion - Page 1 | TruckingTruth Forum

    Phillip, here are some other things to consider. OD has a no-rehire policy. If you think you might wanna run across the country solo, in your 'own' assigned truck with all the bells and whistles, living out of truck stops and going to different places across the country, being away for weeks at at a time, then get it out of your system first before going to OD. Just keep in mind that some drivers would kill for an opportunity at OD. Larger terminals are usually hiring for team positions, but that's not always the case. You don't wanna squander an opportunity if you think teaming for OD might interest you.

    I maybe should've stated in my OP but I don't know if this is correct or not that's why I started a thread, asking if anybody who worked for the big LTL companies knew what their company's policy was in regards to rehiring people.

    Yes I thought so too. I've only been in the trucking industry for 2 years but in all of my non trucking related jobs, as long as you put in a 2 weeks notice, did your job and didn't do anything dumb the last 2 weeks then you were good to be rehired.

    So, this was a bit surprising to me to read this. As I said though, it may or may not be correct. Maybe it's up to the managers discretion and Old Dominion doesn't necessarily have a "hard line" policy on the no-rehire thing.

    I am thinking about my future in trucking and what moves to make in 2021, and knowing whether you can go back to a company or not if you voluntarily resign is very important to me. Not that I would plan on resigning or anything but you know, life happens sometimes and I don't want to burn bridges or not get a 2nd chance if I want one.

    Anyways like I said if anybody knows what their company's LTL policy on rehires is, I'm all ears. Thanks!

    Well, if they won't rehire me--their loss. There are far more trucking jobs than there are professional drivers.

    The only good answer to me seems to be - who cares? There are only about 420-666 good trucking jobs in any given city. That’s half the reason I changed to this career field.

    One thing you’ll probably notice in this job is that each terminal is run like its own company, so I think you hit on it. They likely leave it up to that particular TM as standard procedure.

    OD doesn't have a "no hire policy." We have quite a few guys who left and came back.
