Over the last 5 years I have worked for factory A (for 1 year 2018-2019 and then factory B in 2019 to early 2020. I'm recently back to working at factory A again. The 5 years previous I worked two more jobs with not much of a gap in-between

My partner has no verifiable employment for the last 10 years. She's on the board of two non profits but it's in no way a 9 to 5.

I'm guessing that we need to accumulate some consistent work history but I'm not sure how much we'll need before a company would take the chance on us, especially since we would be needing training. I've tried to get some information from companies directly but didn't get anything useful.

Hay, Wren;

Welcome to Trucking Truth!

Some companies are more rigid, some more flexible than others regarding work history.

Anne has it right, it all depends on the company.

You're partner does not need paycheck type proof of employment. Some companies just want to know that the applicant was doing something, more than just holding down a sofa for the last five years. Seriously working/supporting a non-profit should be a go. Letters of reference from higher-ups should be plenty of proof.
