Break in employment - prepping for Paid CDL interview/acceptance.

Jason, I have been lurking on this forum anonymously for the past year or so. My father is disabled to an extent so there were times where I had to stop working to be at home helping him. Prime turned me down because out of the last 3 years, I spent 8 months unemployed (not consecutive). I reached out and they explained that they're working on making the hiring process a little bit easier but as of right now it is what it is. They are very strict when it comes to employment history from what I've gathered. I applied to Swift and my recruiter has me set up to go to school on the 26th. I asked her about the employment and she didn't even seem remotely concerned. I'm not suggesting by any means that you should go to Swift, I'm just sharing my experience so far and who I've decided on. I've heard from several drivers at Swift and it just seemed like the best fit for me personally and my situation. I also have a terminal about 30 minutes from me so it all just seems to be right. Even if Prime doesn't work out, you will find the right company for you. Whether or not the employment will become an issue at school or right before I leave, that remains to be seen. Hopefully it all pans out for us both! Good luck to you.
