Failed Drug Screen 3 years ago. Where can I get hired?

Thanks! Yeah they've been pretty good so far. Only have 10 more states on my "to see" list. I'm about 1,000 miles away from upgrading to my own truck.

Just an update. Prime took me. Interstate almost took me, they have a 3 year rule they also do a 6 month hair follicle test. Just FYI.

Wow. Good for you. Can't do much better than Prime to start with. Glad to see you got your 2nd chance.

Thank you for your service to our country!

It wasn't a DOT related test.

Hey guys.

I just got my CDL Class A. I went through a private trucking school, paid for by the VA. I was active duty Navy for 9 years, was honorably discharged and joined the Navy Reserves. I was given a Administrative Discharge for weight and a failed drug screen (Marijuana). That was 3 years ago. I've been told by CRST that I have to wait 10 years and Shneider told me 5 years. Is this going to prevent me from gaining employment as a long haul, OTR driver? I haven't smoked in months, passed my DOT physical and drug screen and currently hold a Class A CDL.
