Yeah if you look at my date of arrest its been a little over 6 years. I was convicted in 2015 and arrested in 2014. And federal charges work a bit different then state charges. State charges show the conviction date as whenever you were sentenced. Federal charges show the conviction date for when you officially enter your plea since Federal Charges can take YEARS to be processed. And as for Schneider, they seem pretty open to the idea that I have a letter of recommendation from two federal judges explaining that they believe I am a productive member of the community now and don't believe I will reoffend. So they seem pretty okay with my criminal background mainly because of that. So we will see. I do have to wait for everything to be official with Drug Court and I have to obtain my actual License which I am not sure when I will get an official answer as to when I can go do that since all DMVs in NJ right now are by appointment only and I can't seem to get one lol.

You sound like you’ve really overcome whatever led you down a wrong path.

Congratulations! And please continue the positive momentum. This world needs more of it. Again; CONGRATULATIONS!

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

Hey everyone,

Quick update. I got a conditional job offer after speaking more in depth with the recruiter. They said they don't see any reason for me not to be hired. I am being hired for a dedicated route based out of Kenton, OH. Its for Graphic Packaging. 70% of it is the Northeast Region and the other 30% is as far west as Texas and as far south as Florida. Not too bad. The position pays more than the normal over the road position they are offering so I am happy about that. I was told by my close friend that of course its all preference but dedicated positions tend to be a lot better because they are more reliable for home time and travel destinations. That obviously makes sense. I have my final interview on January 25th and if all goes well, that is when I will get all my information to attend the 3 week orientation out in Green Bay. All in all, super excited to start this career! Definitely the company I was the most excited to work for, for now. They did say I will have to do NYC routes. I am a bit nervous because I have never driven an 18 wheeler through NYC but I have with my car and its annoying with a car so I can only imagine an 18 wheeler doing it. I am assuming that I will get some help from them along the way or some tips.

Dedicated Route:

A driver or carrier who transports cargo between regular, prescribed routes. Normally it means a driver will be dedicated to working for one particular customer like Walmart or Home Depot and they will only haul freight for that customer. You'll often hear drivers say something like, "I'm on the Walmart dedicated account."

Over The Road:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
