Sorry, I generally don't come into the women's forum because I just feel like I'm doing a guy's job and who better to ask questions of, are guys.

It is going to be VERY, VERY tough to get a job driving. There are some second chance companies but with the economy being what it is, it will be tough getting hired by them. Try our handy dandy link and hopefully you will get some responses from some companies.

How long have you been driving? Why were you off work and for how long? I take it you used marijuana. And that's the first time you've EVER done that in your 54 years? I hope you do realize how stupid that was. You need to eat a lot of humble pie when talking with companies.

If you can't get anyone to take you on, you might have to look into Class B type work. You might find somebody in those jobs that will give you a job. You've got to get a lot of time being clean under your belt.
