JUST WANT A CHANCE..Grad Student

The school was telling me (DONT WORRY YOUR PAST IS NOT A PROBLEM)!!

That is very unfortunate. Some private schools are just glad to take your money. Have you tried contacting Carolina Cargo? I would also PUSH the Director of your School to help you find employment, since according to Him/Her, your past "Is not a Problem". Also search Craigslist in your area. Dump Trucks, Garbage Trucks, Roll- Offs, etc. Do your BEST to get behind the wheel of SOMETHING at this point. You don't want to let too much time pass between your training and employment. I'm really sorry that you got sold a bill of goods by the Driving School. If all else fails, you could pursue attempting to get your tuition refunded. Hiring a Lawyer would probably be out of the question. Many of them operate just like your driving school. Good Luck to you!

I have not tried Carolina Cargo, thank you for the advice! Guess I'll start trying Craigslist too. Thanx again!!

JUST WANT A CHANCE..Grad Student

Please can anyone help? I live in Connecticut. I graduated from CDL school a couple months ago. Being a truck driver was something I've wanted to do most of my life. Unfortunately I've hit a major obstacle. My past is not so clean. For a long time I ran the streets and did the wrong thing. Sadly the only thing I have to show for it is Felony convictions on my record. That being said I was incarcerated in 2012. I came home in 2015 and turned my life around. I left my past behind and stayed focused on what was important! The school was telling me (DONT WORRY YOUR PAST IS NOT A PROBLEM)!! Well I've found out that it is a problem!! I've applied to just about every "starter" company out there. And it always falls on my record or how long I've been out of prison. There isn't any major crimes such as murder or anything, but still their crimes I guess. I guess I'll just put it out there in the case someone decides to help. I have past burglary and possession charges.

Hopefully someone can help me. Just looking for a chance to prove myself. DRIVE SAFE
