So I got a situation going on

Well here's the update...

I don't know if any other state has this issue but in MS if you have 2 serious moving violations within 3 years you gotta pay a reinstatement fee which surprised me. It doesn't matter if the other one you have had drop off it still goes on your record, now I gotta see if my Driver's legal plan can reduce the charge now.

Do you have any legal support? Best bet is to just lawyer up, and see if they can knock the charge down to a cash payment without points. Do you pay for any legal aid from the company? From my understanding most offer ranging packages to help protect your CDL.

Good luck man, I hope this all works out for you to get back driving!

Yeah, I should be on the driver's legal plan.

Cory D, sometimes your license will show as being suspended in only one state. If this happened at a CMV weigh station, I would contact that state's DMV and see if they can give you some pertinent information. Is it possible you had a ticket from a long time ago that you never paid? Could you be in arrears on child support in another state? Have you ever failed to appear in court when summonsed?

I'm just throwing out some ideas that are common reasons for suspensions - no guilt is meant to be implied.

Get on top of it fast, you've got to get to the bottom of this and clear it up quickly.

This guy said I had a speeding ticket from a hazmat load, even though I never have been pull over and arrested for a hazmat. I only hauled one or two hazmat load through the 1.8 years I have in trucking. I only had two tickets, both paid off on time and they were in personal vehicles. I also don't have kids and I only have MS licenses my whole year.

But I understand what you mean by no guilt. This is still bizarre because it feels like a cop screwed up someone because the recent ticket I had from a police department showed my ticket was paid on time and they didn't authorize a suspension for my license.

This is kinda of embarrassing but here goes, I got arrested during the middle of this week because I was told my CDL was suspended. Something that I did not know about until I pulled up on the inspection station. But what doesn't make sense is if they were suspended in the first place then wouldn't job found out after they ran my license? I hear JBHunt is very strict when it comes to these types of things and they verified everything was clean. When I went to go get my D's and T's last year at the DMV they never claimed that my CDL was under any suspensions, and if they were I would've paid it off. I had license looked at before at an inspection station in Florida and gave him my license and things went okay, I had two speeding tickets at the time but now the one I had in 2014 dropped off last year so I only have one atm.

Anyone can give me some insight on why did this happen? Because my company is just as puzzled as I am about this situation.

JB Hunt Intermodal offered me a job

I'll be sure to ask some questions from a JBH Intermodal driver and gather some info on the division.

Thanks everyone.

JB Hunt Intermodal offered me a job

Good luck with all that! Personally, I'd like to never set steer tire in a rail yard ever again. The check-in procedure getting on-site is laborious, you've got to really inspect the container for damage(s), if you're bringing a container into a rail yard it cannot be damaged (punctured side from forklift)... I suppose if you're doing it all the time it all becomes second nature and goes much more smoothly, but it seems like a huge hassle to me; must be why they pay so well.

Containers are shorter than dry vans.

The intermodal training will consist mostly of container securement and rail yard procedures.

There should never be a lack of work... last week in a LA rail yard picking up an intermodal tanker, I saw many, many JB Hunt chassis and containers, and driving to AZ, then Los Angeles, then to AR, I saw a hundred trains carrying countless JB Hunt containers.

Interesting, so I assume they're a 48 then?

Been looking at some videos on intermodal trying to educate myself on the division and what the procedure is like, the guy at JB Hunt told me they have it where they can get in and get out compared to other intermodals companies.

JB Hunt is offering me a job in the Intermodal division, I'll be in a tighter region area being mainly southeast compared to my current position at Schneider.

With JB Hunt I'll be making 7 cents more being 41cpm, 14$ detention pay and I forgot what the pay was for both normal stops and hazmat stop I believe it was 17$. They said I'll be bring home 1000-1300$ a week running 2000 miles plus I'll be home every week because it's a dedicated account. Recruiter says I'll be making 58k a year with a possibility of making 65K a year.

So my questions are.....

How is the Intermodal Division? What are your thoughts?

Since I'll be delivering to railroad areas how does it differs from going to a distribution center?

Is the pay really that good for hauling railroad parts?

Is hauling a container similar to a dryvan?

What training does the division offers that I should be aware of?

Truck Driving Overseas

So then you're halfway home :)

If you apply keep us in the loop during your interview/employment process. I'm curious as to how it works nowadays. The only requirement I would make non-negotiable is to be armed. If they tell you that you can't carry a weapon, walk away.

Will do, and I'll keep that in mind to ask that question during the interview.

Look into it. Who knows what the opportunities are nowadays compared to 10 years ago overseas as a contractor. Hell I think even the first 75K or so you earn isn't even taxable.

You'll never know until you apply.

Auggie are you driving in a war zone? It's a rhetorical question...why encourage someone to do something so dangerous?

double-quotes-end.png

Nope, I'm not. I was in the Army for 15 years though so I have a pretty good idea of what goes on :)

Not my job to tell this young man what to do. I encourage everyone to apply for what they want and ONLY decide after the interview if it's for you or not. You ALWAYS take the interview.

Patrick pretty much laid out what happens in a combat zone. I just told the OP how to look into it. It's up to him whether or not he wants to pursue it. I'm not his parent. I'm some dude on the internet that can give him some information on what he's interested in.

As it turns out, Dyncorp wants a year driving experience before they'll hire you. See, right there he'll run into his first road block. One he would not have hit had we all been hysterical in trying to convince him not to drive as a contractor.

Think if it like this: the media breathlessly reports every American killed overseas. When is the last time you heard of a truck driver buying the farm? Yeah, me neither.

2004 - 2011 was different time. Who knows, maybe nowadays you can drive from some supply point to Kandahar, make $150K a year and not worry about anything more than mosquitoes. I know I don't know what goes on over there anymore.

Tell you what though, I may look into this :)

Well I already have a year and 4 months of driving experience so that gap is pretty much non-existent.
