@NeeklODN - honestly, I do not know the answer to that. They (the trucking companies) handle determining what is within their hiring guidelines and what isn't The best thing we can do is just send it up to them and see what happens. It doesn't commit you to anything to complete our online application and would at least let us see what options were available to you.

Could I be kicked out for not putting something on a conviction form when a recruiter told me not to? It was a misdemeanor for an open bottle when I ws eighteen, so eleven years ago. Kicked out of trucking school that is. I know they go over your background check etc and People get kicked out for various reasons like failing the drug test or other things. Idk, I hope my recruiter was right...what does the PAM recruiter think? Thanks

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Hey Chuck, Drivers solutions school would be in Philly. You'd be staying at a hotel in Jersey and I'm pretty sure they provide a shuttle, but I'm not sure. I know there is a toll to get to the school from the hotel so they do encourage car pooling if you're driving. They pay for the hotel but meals are on you.

Hey what are your pet restrictions?

Brett (owner of the TruckingTruth.com site) wanted us to try something new to help all you out. So, we are opening up the floor for you to speak directly with a recruiter to answer any questions you might have. If it’s something about the training process – we will answer it directly. If it’s a question more of the lifestyle/day-to-day of trucking, we will get an answer from an experienced driver who has been through our training program for you. Our goal is for this to be a positive and helpful thread. So, how can we help???
