    Thanks for all the input. I currently have a Class B CDL job driving transit buses but just wanted to break into trucking. I’ve been driving buses for over 15 years and honestly, the pay isn’t great and I’m just burned out with it. I’ll keep applying. Hopefully, something will happen.

    You'll succeed. Do the online applications and keep the talk down to a minimum during interviews.
    The ones interviewing you aren't your friends; they pretend they are so they can look for soft spots to exploit.
    Keep it business related only and tell the interviewers what they want to hear.
    You've been working with the public driving buses, so you get the drift.

    Thanks, man. Swift is one that rejected me. I’m waiting to hear back from Steven’s and CFI. If I have to, I’ll try CRST next.

    Did Swift reject you on a phone call or an application you submitted?

    I filled out application and then a recruiter called me. I spoke with him. He set a date to get my class A. A couple of days before the class started, I get my application status as ‘Declined’ So the recruiter resubmitted it again. Came back declined. He said it was the misdemeanor in my background.
