Old School,

While I don't think keeping his record for 12 years is grounds for a lawsuit, I also don't think telling him to prove himself somewhere else first is extending an olive branch. People change a lot in 12 years, and it's as if these companies are looking for every reason possible not to hire you. Pride won't hire me, for example, because my work history isn't solid. They tell me to work somewhere else first. Well, I don't want to do some other job I don't want for 3 years to prove myself to a stupid company that doesn't understand that. The American work ethic left when Americans stopped being paid well when adjusting for inflation. I embrace UBI, but I still want to work if anyone will hire me. These companies can find stupid reasons not to hire anyone if they look enough.

Also, when is your book coming? I still want to read it. Is it going to be on Amazon?

YOU may not consider it an olive branch, but apparently, Schneider knows they offer good pay and benefits. They also know a previous unsafe driver, who has not proven the skills necessary to operate safely IN TWELVE years, has a higher chance of costing the company lots in damages. It’s called Risk Management. Nobody is just sitting around with nothing better to do than denying candidates a position.

Ask yourself; if I loaned my car to a friend, who then crashed it, would I loan my new car to them if they hadn’t driven in twelve years?

Old School has owned and operated a business. He knows the risks.

"Our government offers to give us money for not working." I think you underestimate our government, OldSchool. I grew up in a country with a very "generous" government, but with all the differences, every goverment on our planet is the same: they give people something with one purpose: to be silent. Which also means: follow our trends, don't think too much, and approve...

I recently tried to get rehired by Schneider National after being out of trucking for 12 years I applied contacted a recruiter who told me I was eligible for rehire in which I should I haven't worked for Schneider for 12 years had my interview and at the end was denied employment because I was terminated for a safety violation 12 years ago I was shocked is it even possible for a company to keep employment records for over decade? let alone deny employment for something that happened 12 years ago I was told I need to go get 6 months experience elsewhere then Schneider would hire me on, Do I have a case of discrimination or a lawsuit for them keeping employment records for 12 years?

The guys already answered your main questions, David.

Here's my question; Did you maintain your CDLA and update your Med Card for the 12 years? If so, add your location, for suggestions. You'll still need a refresher course, IMHO, however.

Did you try this? Apply For Paid CDL Training

And this? Apply For Truck Driving Jobs

Gotta start somewhere (again!) Best wishes;

Old School,

I embrace UBI, but I still want to work if anyone will hire me. These companies can find stupid reasons not to hire anyone if they look enough.

Lots of lazy, layabout folks are probably in the same boat as you, Chris. Why work at all when the government handouts (pronounced Those That Do Contribute: TAXPAYERS) will carry you instead? Anyone that supports UBI was probably a supporter of UBL, too. IMHO of course.

Schneider and any other company can hire or not hire anyone it chooses. That still leaves more than 100,000 other trucking companies to choose from.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

"The American work ethic left when Americans stopped being paid well when adjusting for inflation"

I say this with all the respect that deserves and that I can muster.....Oh BooHoo, cry me a river 😢 🎻. There's NO excuse for crap work ethics. You asked for the job, if they hire you, do the best you can.

One of the main reasons I'm interested in truck driving is because you can still make decent money at it. I will try my best if anyone hires me, but I've had enough jobs making less than 30k a year that leave me too tired to do anything else the rest of my day. Also, you can be a wage slave if you want to be. That's all I see when you mock the death of the American dream.

Are you seriously considering a lawsuit for something YOU did wrong? No, you can't sue them for keeping track of who they have employed over the years. What would be the grounds? Too good a memory? Lmao and smh.

I asked the question about a lawsuit because I was under the impression that there's a statue of limitations on the time a company can keep any records of an employee ive read 7 years is the longest records can be kept by an employer secondly I held a job for 11 yrs after I left schneider for being so called unsafe I never had a accident or was late delivering while I worked for schneider my termination was bs in my opinion and again that was 12 years ago how can u hold someone to something that happened 12 years ago in the work field I dont feel that is right there's plenty of companies out here so im not worried I was just curious abt them being able to keep my record on file for over decade. Lastly like I said a recruiter from schneider prior told me I was eligible to rehire when I applied back in 2018 she said I had passed the time frame and was eligible for rehire when I applied this time initially the recruiter told me I was eligible for rehire that at the end of the interview that all changed how why its bs schneider to damn strict anyways I know its something out here better for me.. .

1st off I didn't cost the company a penny I did not have an accident or anything while I was with schneider so speak what you know not wat u assume secondly I have a clean MVR and held a job for 11 years str8 after leaving schneider working for a manufacturing company I have good work history and a great work ethic I was terminated for so called unsafe because another driver called and reported my truck for something I didn't even do and schneider believed his testimony over mine no damage or accident or even an incident occurred i have no dengs on my record my record is clean as it pertains to me asking abt a lawsuit is because I was under the impression that there is a statue of limitations as to how long a employer can keep your personal records ive read 7 years is the max yes and company can search up to 10 years but no specific employer is suppose to hold your records that long under law

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.

Hi yes my CDL is valid i have to get a new physical which isn't a problem at all I live in Chicago and would appreciate some other suggestions I would like to find something local maybe intermodal if possible thats what I applied with schneider for was local intermodal im willing to do regional also home every weekend im also interested in lease purchase after I get 6 months experience i plan on joining someone's lease purchase program

  • 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.

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

Intermodal:

Transporting freight using two or more transportation modes. An example would be freight that is moved by truck from the shipper's dock to the rail yard, then placed on a train to the next rail yard, and finally returned to a truck for delivery to the receiving customer.

In trucking when you hear someone refer to an intermodal job they're normally talking about hauling shipping containers to and from the shipyards and railyards.

Sorry, what is UBL? Most of what I say gets censored so I don't put much effort into my posts. ;)

Being in Chicagoland . . . MANY options. Look into OD (ODFL) ... and where MY GUY (and Don on here) works,

FAB Express! I'll tell you more about FAB if you're interested. They are really relaxed anymore in their hiring, since my guy started there 5 years ago, that's for sure. Yes, it's 'local' per se. Intrastate , mostly. Delivering boxes from IP (Int'l Paper) to the consignees, ie: Heinz, Smuckers, Chewy, Vix's Secret, and on and on and on. They are a dedicated line for corrugated.

Hope that helps!

ps: OMG... please LOSE the L/P idea, especially in this economy. I know a few O/O's that are 'struggling.' Now (if ever is ?!?) is NOT the time!
