Hi Everyone: I was trying to apply to a company and when I spoke to the recruiter who said i was denied because my DAC report says "authorized location without notice". But when I called Hireright they said it states "with notice". Do both statements mean the same thing? The recruiter told me it means I abandoned my truck or that I went to a location without permission from the trucking company. I contacted my old employer and they said they did not report it. So it must be from a trucking company I tried for 3 days. They didn't give me any paperwork after working there for 2 days; they kept changing their stories on me and the trucker they had training me had a huge temper and told me he would deny everything I told them. I just didn't trust it so I texted them and told them I was not going to work for them any longer because I didn't trust their company. Now I think they are the ones who did this, however, the recruiter told me that it is coming from my older company that I worked with for a year and a half. I was wondering if any of you could tell me what to do. I am stuck without a good paying job until I can get this resolved and I hope I can get it resolved.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

Contact Hireright using their, dispute a report link. Find out from them where this information is coming from and go from there. Good luck.

I had this conversation with a recruiter recently when I had to explain why I had an "unauthorized use of equipment" on my DAC , which I only discovered when I got him to explain why he needed to get me cleared through his safety guys. So, as it turns out, there are companies out there that will act spitefully and vindictively when you call in to say that you want to move on. In my case, I called in and said that I needed to leave ASAP because the way I was running was eroding my marriage, and that I wanted to go straight to the yard. Since I was told that the truck needed to come back with a load, I went to load in Portland and found myself in a long line that extended for about 2 blocks inside an industrial area, and that line was not moving for 5 hours. Since I only had just enough time to get to the yard on the ELD, I made the decision to just go instead of sitting on the street blocking the other trucks. I called the company and they said that I failed to load under the dispatch so I was the one who was wrong. Granted, I didn't load. Granted, I drove their truck back empty on their dime. Granted, I wanted to just quit ASAP. However, the recruiter and I both agreed that they did that to set my ass up because I wanted to quit, and they wanted a pound of flesh off my ass as I left. Hell, they had already turned off my access pass when I got there and I had to ask a mechanic to let me in! Everyone in the industry knows these stories, and they take it all into consideration.
