The recruiter didn’t blindly tell you that you were eligible for rehire. It’s their job to make sure of that before hand. So it wasn’t till after the interview that they told you were in fact not eligible. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that maybe the interview didn’t go well. Did they ask you about this safety violation at the interview?

Obviously the recruiter did blindly say I was eligible they ran all my information before the interview my background my dac report my mvr report they ran all that prior to the interview and the 1st recruiter can also see certain information initially especially if I said I worked there prior so all that information came up immediately. Lastly I applied for schneider back in 2018 and was told I was eligible for rehire dispite the violation that recruiter informed me enough time had passed since the violation and I was eligible and was constantly messaging me to get me to take the job then in 2018 but I wasn't ready then I was just inquiring to see if I was eligible and I was so from 2018 to 2021 something changed in there policy or they just didn't want to hire me but nothing went south in my interview we were abt to set a start date until she spoke to her supervisor who told her I needed to get 6 months elsewhere 1st

MVR:

Motor Vehicle Record

An MVR is a report of your driving history, as reported from your state Department of Motor Vehicles. Information on this report may include Drivers License information, point history, violations, convictions, and license status on your driving record.

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.

Hi again, David S. !! Just me . . .

Recruiters are about getting 'their' bonus. Kinda like the Dyson (or what was it??? Old time vacuum sellers?) guys.. just to SHOW YOU it works, they get a commission. KIRBY ... that's it! They would get a ten spot or (idk, really!) just for entering your home and showing you the product. You got 'shown.' Wanna know something else? Kirby and Dyson do NOT approve all vacuum potentates. Ask me how I know. Prefer you didn't. LoL.

So, instead of getting 'penny ante' with some 'mid snarky' statements; have you ever given pause, to THANK those that have been helpful, ??

I'm sorry you went through this. SNI can be tough, as they choose. Perhaps they had a good 'flock' at that time, to choose from. Read below:

SNI wouldn't hire TOM back in (idk ..2009/13?) for a seatbelt vio in his PV. That's THEIR way, and they are successful, because of .. THEIR WAY.

I / we WISH YOU THE BEST, man.

Brett's just getting a lil' tired from the 'negative' banter going on up in here. This is a training site, for NEW and PROSPECTIVE drivers. Yes, your issue/conundrum DOES belong here, IMHO.

How'bout' take the good, and ignore the bad? It's over, it happened. You have no recourse, sorry.

Pull your DAC, as suggested: DAC 'PLUS!'

Best wishes, always~

I mentioned suing because for the 100th time I thought there was a statue of limitations on how long an employer can keep your personal records

👍👍👍

If you want to get back into the driving business your best option would be to apply to several companies that strike your interest. Unfortunately, when you find a company willing to hire you, you'll have to go through their training program before they'll give you a truck. Is your CDL still valid?

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

David none of your story makes any sense. A company is not going to waste their time, money, and effort interviewing if you if you were never eligible for rehire in the first place. Does that make sense to you?… “ Hey!!! Let’s get David down here for an interview even though he is not eligible?” I understand what Anne is saying about the a recruiter getting a bonus, but I can’t imagine a recruiter would get one for sending an ineligible applicant in for an interview. A company like Schneider knew all your information prior to.

Move on.

Lol 1st off you don't know me personally so you can kick bricks with your judgemental statement. I mentioned suing because for the 100th time I thought there was a statue of limitations on how long an employer can keep your personal records period ive never sued any one in my life but if im done wrong if someone breaks a law against me u or I would be a fool not to sue simple and plain. Lastly I was 21 when I drove for schneider they trained me I drove a year for them and drove 4 months for jb hunt after never had a accident nothing my so called safety violation wasn't even an accident or any damage caused to my truck or load ok so in my eyes schneider did me dirty anyway im in my early mid 30's now with children a home owner and have grown a whole lot from then so your opinion on me means nothing to me I dont care abt schneider there's plenty of other companies out there I posted abt my experience to vent and to see if there's actually a limitation on how long your records can be kept i was wrong or right it doesn't matter either way..

A safety violation can be a whole host of things, many of which have nothing at all to do with being in an accident. In fact, a safety violation I believe falls into a category where you did something dangerous that could have caused a wreck, but you were merely lucky that it didn't.

Example: A ticket for following too close is a safety violation. Did this cause a wreck? Doesn't matter. It's a safety violation regardless. Another example: failing an inspection due to a faulty taillight. Now, I could be mistaken, but I believe that this is also a safety violation. Has nothing at all to do with an accident, but it sure could be the cause of one.

David, you might do yourself some good if you simply acknowledge that you made mistake that resulted in a violation, then learn from it. Many companies not named Schneider won't even care about that safety violation, if it comes up because it was soong ago. If it does come up, describe how you learned from it. Talking about getting messed over is not going to convince any company to hire you and will have just about all run from you.

Some of the experienced drivers here .ight be willing to share some tips and pointers on how to avoid such a violation in the future if you identify what the violation was, own it with integrity, and show that you are willing to learn from it. So far, the comments I have seen have most drivers thinking that you are not worth the time because you don't seem to want to be accountable. David, if you can get past thinking that Schneider did you wrong and that you must somehow get retribution, then you will be much better off. You will be better for it in several ways, one of them with which I have personal experience is that you will be in a better place emotionally.

Here is my story and what I had to learn:

I went to orientation with TransAm after all of my other applications with every other company was denied. I ended up having an unfortunate miscommunication with TransAm right after completing the brief training period they provided. The result of the miscommunication was that I left TransAm with a "screw them" attitude. I came on here and started a thread about how TransAm is a terrible company and really did me wrong. Was that what happened? No. What happened is that companies have people working for them and people sometimes get communication screwed up. I could have been more proactive in the situation and started off on the road driving for TransAm, despite the communication issue.

I have since started a thread where I came back here basically sharing how I learned from that experience and that I am giving a go at starting my career in trucking again. Both of the threads I have mentioned can be found on the forum still.

Just Started And Already It's Bad

1+ year removed from CDL school

I would like you to read my comments in both threads and notice the difference in attitude. David, I absolutely believe in the people having the capacity to change, but you have to want to change your attitude. In my thread complaining about TransAm, G-Town gave it raw, real, and straight. My attitude was the problem and needed to change.

I know that this was a lengthy post, but I just really felt moved to tell you that you have some things to work out, but to also tell you that I know this because I had the same issue.

Be well, David.

Kerry i understand where u are coming from but you are saying i need to acknowledge something I've clearly moved on from its been acknowledged and left 12 years behind me I haven't thought abt that crap since. My so called safety violation was miniscule I spoke that another driver falsely reported me for something I genuinely did not do and my driver leader took there testimony over mine period end of story I did nothing wrong I elaborated that I had no accident or incident hell I was sitting in a truck stop getting ready to go pick up a load going to Louisiana when I was called with the bs that is far behind me I dont need to acknowledge something that never actually happened I've moved forward made money worked another job for 11 yrs after that I can careless abt that situation. I decided to try schneider again only because I'm Interested in there lease purchase program so I figured why not go back get the 6 months of experience needed and join the lease purchase period that didn't happen so im going elsewhere and who knows 6 months from now I may try again because I'm still interested in there lease purchase program again that 12 year old nonsense holds no barrier on me as a person worker driver non of that thanks for your input...

David what are you talking about you said you were terminated for a safety violation from Schneider? Which was why you are ineligible to work for them. So how does that further prove Schneider’s bs? Again you were eligible and than went in for an interview and it didn’t go well. The quicker you get over that. The happier you will be.

Move on.
