Of the companies willing to hire a person with a prior felony; 5 years seems to be where "some" will consider you. Others want 7 or even 10 years in the past.

I suggest reviewing the link NeeklODN sent you. Call around to the companies with the 5 year criteria, see what they say.

Good luck and be persistent.

Be 100% Honest when telling them what happened.

During orientation at swift there was a couple guys that had records.

One was 100% honest and was still on parole. Had to do paperwork with his p.o. and swift to make sure he was good to go. and he was hired on I remember him passing and ready to start a good life. I talked to him a couple weeks after going Solo he was still running.

The other guy. He wasnt so honest. He was arrested for shop lifting. And after the first day of orientation. He was no longer with us. He went to the school he got to even practice in the trucks and yada yada but then when we hit the orientation and the girls were running our records... He shook our hands and left.

Brett if you write an updated blog on the subject of this thread, Mr. Smiths reply is required reading for anyone trying to find their way into trucking with anything in their background requiring added attention.

Great answer!
