For the past three weeks, I've been trying to get hired, but keep running into problem of trying to fit the companies profile of what they want in a driver. This company's recruiter said that I haven't had any OTR work in awhile. I did it before over five years ago. I've done overnighters before. That wasn't good enough. They needed a least two years worth recently. I told the recruiter that when I started six years, it didn't matter how much experience you had. It all came down was you able to drive anywhere. Now if you don't jump through the right hoops, you can't get hired. Has anybody else having the same problem?


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

The "recent experience" is really a thing. Check out this recent topic: Trying To Find A SMALL Carrier

Many carriers want retraining if you have not driven in 6 months
