What companies would potentially hire with 1 FRESH preventable accident on record?

**TLDR** At this point im wondering if there is any company other than TMC or Western Express that would have me in Orientation next week? Can't work at any of the P&S Companies for the next 6 months either.

Is there any companies that will hire being out of work for the past 6 months, and also getting into a preventable accident (no tickets issued/light damage done) literally 2 days ago on 3/21/2020? I was at orientation and on my way to turn back in the rental car after I just checked into the hotel. That is where I got into the accident at an intersection that I was held at fault for. First accident ever in my entire life really hurt my pride (no one was hurt physically). Company sent me home on an UBER (3hr ride thats hella nice of them). Really good company to work for as I have worked there before for over a year and really genuinely enjoy that company its a shame that the accident happened and ruined that opportunity to rehire on for the next 6 months minimum.

Company just 4 days ago were clawing at me before I made my choice out of the bunch, but now when I call the others back they don't want nothing to do with me except for TMC and Western Express. TMC wants a accident report to see if they can move forward, and Western Express is the type of company that will Greyhound you to Nashville TN just to tell you 2-3 days into orientation that they can't hire you so who KNOWS if Western will hire me or not. Plus Western Express is a pretty bad company I worked there before for 1yr and 1 mo already; that being said they were my first company, and where I did get my first 1yr of experience, and they did give me a chance so for that they are cool. TMC on the other hand is a little to picky and strict on how they operate.

Either way at this point I would be happy if either company could give me a job, or another company I haven't heard of that is better than these two? My record is fairly average. My last speeding ticket is already over 3+ years old and I only have minor things like overweight tickets, and 1 warning for failure to obey traffic control device that happened from a mishap at a weigh station. So if anyone knows any companies for me to try that are reputable, easy on the drivers, percentage pay for flatbedding as P&S is please let me know!.

O/O with Own Authority Refuses to pay wages.

I agree, I rather just move on but I am the only provider in my household with my sick mom unable to contribute much. Going to be a messed up couple next months getting back from this mess.

I wouldnt have ran for him if it wasnt for the 20+ companys I called telling me they wouldn't take me. For some reason TMC seems like they want to give me a go. I am taking some joy out of situation with the thought of becoming a flatbedder which is what I always wanted to do sense I first thought about being a trucker.

I just thought maybe small claims court could at least put a judgment on him when he refuses to show up to court. Unfortunately I already knew he wasn't going to pay me. Was just hoping someone here had a trump card for me to use. Oh well. Thanks for taking a read guys.

I have my log book showing the work I done, and he told me verbally that he wanted me to work for 3 months. I also have the miles I drove for written down as well, and for the other guy I am never going back to CRST, no thanks. I am joining TMC next month around the 15th.

O/O with Own Authority Refuses to pay wages.

So I joined up with H and L Logistics, its a guy from South Carolina, Greenville. He only runs one truck with his own authority, and I believe his brother runs the other.

Long story "short" this man is refusing to pay me and has stopped all contact with me. Have been calling him every day now and he has left me in a really bad spot. I had two job offers at 11$ an hour working in a warehouse and driving a straight truck every now n then and it was only a couple blocks down from my house. I gave that up for the alluring 800+ a week he promised and only out for 10-12 days and at home for 3-5. Needless to say every trip I went out with him I only averaged 1500 miles and paid 500 dollars for 10 days out. ========================================================================================================================= Regardless of the miles I got, I am just trying to figure out how to get my money, and how can I warn people about this guy to not work for him? The most unprofessional person I have met. Talked about race war with whites n blacks constantly and even said the first white he is going to kill he already has em picked out (was referring to me). I literally kissed his butt everytime cus I was worried he would kick me out of the truck far from home. Slid the tandems back when it wasn't even my turn, got out the truck to help him back up, adjusted his side mirror every time it knocked out of place, went inside with him to watch how the paper work was done. This guy was an emotional wreck, constantly telling me "i'm not stupid why do you keep thinking that", when I said nothing of the sort for him to say that at all. It was like being with a woman on her period.

Reason why he refuses to pay is because he blames J.B Hunt for not paying him. Which for the first week I could understand that because they had his paychecks being mailed to his house which takes 1 week or 2 to arrive, but after he got the direct deposit set up it takes a total of 2 days to pay someone. On the last day we ran together he was rushing home for his sons birthday, and promised to pay on Friday (same day as his sons birthday), needless to say he was planning his own birthday which is the 24th, in 2 days. I suspect he is refusing to pay to fund his own agenda but I have no proof of this nor do I care I just want to get paid. Also needless to say its been way longer than 3 weeks the first weeks pay checks should have shown up by now for him to pay me off of that. Alsox2 he should of paid me out of his pocket sense I worked for him not J.B Hunt.

I could go into great detail the just plain ridiculousness of this man, and all I did to keep him happy, and prove I'm not a lazy worker and I appreciate him giving me a chance. I think I messed up when I told him my situation at what happened with CRST and the accident I gotten into and how no company would take me, because from then on it has just been him taking advantage of me.

@Brian "Listen I'm sure there are trainers doing it for the wrong reasons out there. Understand though I am risking my life there life and my livelyhood training students. I think students like yourself under appreciate hard working trainers that want to help students be successful in this field."

Well I wish I would of had you as a trainer Brian instead of the useless sack I had first time out. He did it specifically for the pay raise and to ride out his last two months with CRST so he could get hired at Roadrunner. He even tried to get my to go to Prime the first day I met him. Set me up for orientation and everything. Anyways thats old news now and am just working for owner ops now in the mean time off craigslist.

As for the poster above me and the rest like him. Believe what I say is the truth or the not, really doesn't make a difference to me. I didn't come on to these forums looking to be called a liar. I thought these forums were to come here to ask for help. Obviously I was mistaken.

Sorry for very late reply, but for the past couple months I been trying to dig myself out a hole I put myself in and not spending it on the net.

@ Brett, I replied to you but you took forever to get back to me so I had to make moves on my own, however I see now you did eventually respond. All I can say is I chose not to pay CRST back and going to have a lawyer look at my contract for free and see if they can advise anything. *Probably not but who knows doesn't hurt to try thats what a bunch of my buddies at CRST are doing that got fired*.

@everyone else. I have found someone on craigslist who hired me and its an automatic truck. All I gotta say is trucking is not that hard as I thought with this automatic. Now I have time to focus on the actual length, height, and width of the truck and not the stick/clutch. Which makes things so much easier. Like driving a big car, kinda. I'm confident in the truck now and have no problems driving. Been driving for a month now OTR mainly in the south and east coast. Idk why so many people who replied had zero faith I could ever learn how to drive. I said very clearly I was in a stressful situation out the bat that no rookie driver should be in. Remove the things that stressed me out and i am doing fine. My trainer I have now we do not get along that well, but at least he isn't as bad as the last one. If anything im showing him a thing or two out on the road because he seems to be a rookie to me as well but claims to be running trucks for 2 years.

Anyways I really don't want to work for this guy much longer as Team Driving is really annoying. I rather be by myself in the truck so pretty soon I'm looking for a company to buy out my contract and put my in an automatic. Maybe if CRST sends my info to a collection agency then I wont have to worry bout the contract. I'm still young so I have time to clear that credit nonsense off my records so I been told. Any answers about that?

Just got off the phone with someone at CRST.

They told me half way through my plight "Ahh come on sir, you sound as if tho you are making this your lead trainers fault". Soon as he said that I was like why did I even bother calling. Not once did I say it was my leads fault. I made the mistakes, however I am a damn student without proper guidance. Why was I let go so far so fast? Even if I got into another accident down the road the next week I should still have at least one more chance after that right?

Oh well... Guess i'ma post an add out on craigslist. Maybe some owner opp would be willing to train me and let me drive for him.
