    I just graduated from NTTS and received my license. I had a pre-hire from Coca-Cola, and they did my pre-screening and background and said I was “potentially ineligible for hire”. The only thing I saw on there that could have made it so I wasn’t eligible was “PEND PRSC-BAC / revocation of license/suspension.” This happened last year 03/20. The whole case was dismissed and my lawyer said that everything was dropped and all charges were dismissed. Called the courts and they said the record was sealed but apparently they can still check it on background checks. Still trying to get ahold of Coca-Cola so I can see what’s happening with it and if they can even get me in because of the case being dismissed and all charges dropped. But if I can’t get in to Coca-Cola or any big company is there any companies or somewhere I should be looking so I can drive? I don’t care if it’s on the road, or local deliveries. Just want to put the CDL to use.

    Craigslist - look on "Transportation" section.
    Many drivers find jobs here that have problems in their past.

    Facebook: has lots of trucking groups. Can find something there or get a lead on a job from someone in a trucking group.

    I suppose it would’ve helped if I said I’m based out of NY :). I was looking into western express. But they’ve say a “reasonable driving record”. Not sure if dismiss cases are considered reasonable :mad:

    Western Express hires in 48 states. You should be ok, since the charge was dismissed.
    Submit the online application off the website before calling.

    Couple of drivers on here found jobs on Craigslist and they both had about a dozen fender-benders in their car.
    They both said they made dozens of phone calls and left dozens of phone messages and had a job within a couple of days.
