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?

Thanks im aware of that im looking into companies that have refresher courses like Roehl for instance im definitely going to apply to several companies starting tomorrow like Roehl Werner Fab express and others and compare and select the best fit for me yes my cdl is still valid I just need to update my physical which is not a problem

Take a look at Pride Transport, also. Not a refresher course per se, but they claim to take anyone with a CDL and will formulate training according to where you are in your ability to drive a truck.

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?… β€œ 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.

Exactly which further proves schneider's bs I have no reason to lie abt my experience everything I've stated is true and exact I was told I was eligible I have no red flags on my record no moving violations no accidents nothing and I was denied after being told I was eligible several times once in 2018 and now in 2021 and they did not rehire me point blank

David, I don't think you understand. What doesn't make sense is that you acknowledge that you did have a safety violation while driving with Schneider. It doesn't make sense that you were cleared for rehire (which means the recruiter knew when you had worked for them before) then later told to kick rocks because you were not eligible for rehire. Yes paperwork SNAFUs happen, but it doesn't make sense that the safety violation got overlooked. What some of the experienced drivers are trying to tell you is that from their experience, you are not being totally straight about something.

I think that you are ready to move on, so I think you would be best served to just ignore this thread, create a new one mentioning what you are wanting to do in trucking moving forward, then with an open mind receive the advice and suggestions offered.

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.

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...

I am saying acknowledge it hear, since it is you who brought it up in your initial post and stop talking about getting messed over. No one here would have known about it if you hadn't brought it up. But, since you decided to mention it as part of the post. It would help the experienced drivers here better be assistance to you if you shared what the violation was for. I personally don't have a dog in the fight, so it doesn't matter to me. I do recognize that you are still bitter about what happened with Schneider.

Clinging to that bitterness and insisting that you got messed over isn't doing anything for you to help you in your next driving position. It could potentially cloud your judgement and make you ill-prepared to handle the responsibility of driving a CMV.

CMV:

Commercial Motor Vehicle

A CMV is a vehicle that is used as part of a business, is involved in interstate commerce, and may fit any of these descriptions:

  • Weighs 10,001 pounds or more
  • Has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combination weight rating of 10,001 pounds or more
  • Is designed or used to transport 16 or more passengers (including the driver) not for compensation
  • Is designed or used to transport 9 or more passengers (including the driver) for compensation
  • Is transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placards

Things I've learned from this thread:

Socialism and communism have never worked and never will in all of human history.

People who complain about mega corporations have no understanding of revenue and profit relationships.

No, you have no basis for a suit because a company didn't rehire you due to a safety violation from 10 years ago.

The truck, school, employer, traffic, shipper and receiver do not care about your political affiliation.

Best comment: redistribution Center.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

You didn't learn that from the thread. That was your bias to start with. Also, most of the developed countries have national healthcare. Most are far more socialistic than the US is. Wealth inequality is associated with a lot of bad things.

Great observations as always, Chris P. Do they keep employment records for 10 years in the Socialist Utopias you are charmed with?

Fun fun. Although I had about 2 years in trucking circa 2005-2006, most of my time has been spent at independent restaurants. The most I have been paid by the hour was 17$ and salary 42,000. I jumped into retirement communities. Supposedly a better quality of life. I will say both yes and no. Not my point though. Part of most of these communities is assisted living. The hiring process is rigid. Background checks, drug tests, reference checks. I would lose an employee, it would take 2-3 weeks at least to get another in the door. One you did a week of orientation. Hmm sound familiar. However, I am on salary, not overtime allowed for hourly. Guess who picks up the slack. Some of the companies conducting the background checks would go back ten years, some 20, some as much as thet could find. I had to turn down a very nice woman w more than the skills I needed b/c of an arrest from 32 years ago. Yes a Coke bust, not convicted but damn. I was livid. Nothing I could do. I know this thread pertains to employment records. Companies can find what they want to find. 7 years, 10 years, 20 years. KFC franchise in Danville Va has my records from 1987. Why? I dont know. Enough rambling. If you were in a right to work state such as Virginia, the question probably wouldnt even been asked. Suck it up Buttercup!

Don't confuse social programs with socialism. It's a false dichotomy. Socialism and communism (which is the ultimate aim of socialism) are a reprehensible stain on humanity.

This is not a bias, this is truth. The only problem with this truth is that it is obvious mostly for those who has personal experience with socialism. The major reason why socialist ideas are so popular among American democrats is that most of these people were born, raised and enjoy their lives in a capitalist country, having no real understanding of a socialist life.

So very true. I will be visiting one of the few if not last remaining gulags left, in Poland in the spring.
