    It's sad that guys will get to orientation before KLLM tells them they will not be able to continue. On the other had, I guess, if the applicant had answered yes on the application to the question he might have saved himself the embarrassment and obvious waste of time. Just seems so unfair for a guy who's paid his debts and still has to live with the penalty beyond what the judge thought was appropriate.

    There are plenty of companies that will hire a driver with a felony conviction. If it is over ten years then most will, over five years many will, over three years some will. The key to this problem is honesty and research. There is no better place to research than the TTR Forum and the company websites.

    IMHO, carrying a pocket knife is not "dumb", it's common sense to have useful tools with you. Kalifornia (used a "K" as nazi symbol not available on a keyboard), not to mention New York, New Jersey and Illinois has more dumb-a55 restrictions than 1930's Germany. Many of us here understand that being carried by six would be much worse than being tried by a jury of twelve...

    Most of the big named companys will hire just needs to be over 10 yrs old! also misdemeanors usually need to be over 5 yrs old! you can always petition the courts for expungement of your felony record, california will allow you to have the felony reduced to a misdemeanor then they will expunge the record from there!

    I'm in the same boat. Aggravated Battery 05/05. Guy ripped the blouse of female friend with me. Knocked him around. All requirements completed with state. Have worked since with 2 O/O. 1st one got sick and shut down business. The 2nd one had me otr, but also runs a scrap business (big $$) however was paid 40.50 per run (both ways 60+ mile round trip) I live 73 miles from the yard (no take home truck) was dipping into my savings and Army retirement to survive. Left him at the end of 10/11. Can anyone suggest a course of action.

    Once you hit the 3 year mark, you can start applying. It all depends on the company and individual circumstance. Look at company websites and trucking job websites and you can see the minimum requirements for felonies. Three years off the road and you have to go through refresher training which means back out with a trainer for 3-6 weeks. Google is your friend. :)
