Howdy (again) James;

Wow, still no luck in a year or so ?!?!?

I've got a link I'll need to dig up for you; an LLC recruiting place, out west by you. PLEASE, either put NV or CA (or both!) in your profile.

In the mean time, have you tried Dutch Maid Logistics? Western Express? Not sure about their presence out your way.

Look into those, amend your profile; I'll look for that group I mentioned, in the meantime.

How long has it been, since you've applied here???? Apply For Truck Driving Jobs!! Running your app through Trucking Truth gives some extra integrity; as Brett is highly respected in the industry.

I feel your pain, remotely. I've got a nephew in the same situation.

I'll be back with that link, as I can.

Still wishing you well;

~ Anne & Tom ~

In addition to a failed drug test? How long ago did you complete the SAP program? Were you able to find a company since you posted here more than a year ago?

Found it !!! Here's the ladies that specialize in RTD/SAP assistance; anything's worth a try, I guess:

Life on the Road; SAP and RTD assistance. They were named to the FMCSA's 16 Women of the Advisory Board. (Wish we nominated KEARSEY, dang it...found out too late.)

No experience with; whatsoever. Informational purposes, only. Best to ya,
