Tom requested:

Gday Derek,

Mate do you have a direct email or some way I can message you? I have an abnormal situation due to living overseas for long periods of time, and would like to ask a few questions regarding my eligibility for your program.

Cheers!

Tom others may learn from any exchange you have with Derek. Please use the forum for your communications. Thank you!

Hi Brett,

Thanks for the message. You would need to attend one our of sponsored CDL schools. That said, we do have a location in Michigan.

The best thing to do is complete our online application. This will not commit you to anything, but will let you schedule a time to speak with someone here about what job opportunities we have out of your area and also what the class schedule looks like for our Michigan location.

Please go here to complete the app:

Thank you for your reply Derek. I tried to fill out an application online, and it tells me, that I do not live in your hiring area, and that I need to relocate to one of your hiring areas.

@Brett E. - Sorry about that. We hire out of MOST of MI, but there are just a handful of zips that fall just outside of our hiring area. From the way you described, I thought you would be in it. Can you please send me your zip so I can double check that it wasn't a system error? Thank you!

here is a question for you derek

Does your company consider adjudication withheld felonies the same as convictions? Unfortunately a lot of companies do.

@Brett E. - so sorry. I double checked everything and unfortunately you are just outside of it. I was trying to see if there was anything we could do, but all of the carriers we work with are limited out of that area. Since we aren't the actual trucking company, we cannot make any exceptions to their hiring area guidelines.

It was worth a shot though! We would love to be able to help you out. If you ever relocate, let us know.
