So hopefully I’ll be in a company of my choosing the beggining of next year. But I hear horror stories of people getting sent home because of application ?? One company says that my application is good to go and they will just re run my mvr when I get ready to start. But my concern is I JUST REMEMBERED. That I didn’t put a few things on my employment part. Like I just remember I worked as a bus boy a long time ago well like 5 or 6 years ago and it slipped my mind and I didn’t put it on my app and my parents business went out of business last year and I was my mom signed me up for unemployment but it was only for a couple weeks and I got job. Do I just talk to the recruiters about that ? Or do I wait for them to bring it up and explain it ? Will I get sent home for that ? Since I just forgot about those things

MVR:

Motor Vehicle Record

An MVR is a report of your driving history, as reported from your state Department of Motor Vehicles. Information on this report may include Drivers License information, point history, violations, convictions, and license status on your driving record.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

First, relax. Call your recruiter and eplain it. Tell them you are willing to redo the app. If the app was online through inteliapp, it may have made you fill in all they need. Call or email your recruiter now.

People generally get sent home from orientation for failing a drug test or lying on their app. At orientation they will rerun your driver's license and background. Good luck.

I honestly don’t know when I started and ended my first job so I don’t want to put it down and have a false date. I just want to be as accurate as possible so they don’t have to worry about any hiccups. Cause I think ( correct me if I’m wrong ) they will call you in a room and go over the application again ?

Yeah that stuff is generally filtered out by the time you get your conditional offer of employment. The things that people get sent home from orientation for are things like Big Scott said. Failed drug test, saying that they had experience that was either unverifiable or a lie, background issues like previous failed drug tests or criminal issues that they left off of the application. If you don't have any issues like that and your app was approved, then you will be just fine. Just don't try to outright lie about something thinking you'll get away with it. Those things will eventually get caught
