If I haven't completed the orientation with a company do I have to list them when applying for driving positions at other companies?

Unless you've been hired by a company, you don't need to add them to other applications.. if it asks if you've applied at different companies then that's different.

If you receive any money from the company during training or orientation you are considered employed so far and the government is concerned.

Ok here's what I found out today as afar as the DAC goes. I went to the website which was given to me which is HIRERIGHT.COM. It was given here so you can find the link just search through our conversations. They are the DAC. There is a 800 # you can call. Rosemary who was the person I talked to was nice enough to tell me, after I gave her my SS #, That Schneider was the only company that has reported any thing on me. Now let me tell you I drove for other smaller companies since then that obviously just do not report to them for this DAC. This DAC thing is apparently a paid snitch web company. It appears, and I only say this from what I know about me, that trucking companies choose whether or not they want to report to them or not.

Here is more that Rosemary was so kind to tell me. After 7 years any accidents or incidents, which I had none with Schneider, is gone. All it shows is I worked there from x date to x date at this company, Schneider. Also after 10 years even the company that you worked for is gone.

I have drove for smaller companies and they just do not report to the "DAC" its fact.

Now is this paid snitch web company legal? probably not. The problem is we are working men and women who do not have the time, money, or recourses to fight against them. They know it! And they will keep doing it until they are stopped! They know that if they disqualify someone from a position that individual will most likely do nothing about it and just move on. That's what they hope.

Bottom line is when you get your truck don't F up. Cause big brother is watching. Especially if your driving for these big companies. Guys and gals if you stay safe out there and keep yourself clean your not going to have much to worry about except PU, DEL getting the job done, getting paid and getting home. BE THE JOB, BE THE TRUCK DRIVER. That's what we got into it for.

Yes I think its crap that we have double standard after double standard placed on us as drivers. Sometimes it seems that THEY treat us as no more than prisoners on work release. Confined to a 10 by 10 cell and able to go home on the weekend. THE truth is we are more than that. You all are more than that. You may not get it yet but you are what keeps this country going. Don't forget it and don't let them rob you of who you are. You, me, all of us are the back bone of this country. Without us the whole economy would stop moving. The worst part of trucking is if you mess up at one carrier it could be your last.

Finally just don't give them any ammo against you. Stay clean and stay safe and they got nothing. Hell, they can't even find the logs on the computer for God sake and they supposed to be.... you get the point.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

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.

It's just as legal as Credit Reporting companies... default on a loan and your credit tanks, crash your truck and your DAC tanks.

Same difference.

It's the same thing, but in the U.S. the laws are written so that the only thing a former employer is allowed to divulge about you is whether or not you worked there and what the dates of employment were. An employer is not supposed to be able to give out opinions or make reports about a former employer. The DAC system was basically created to circumvent that law somehow. I don't know why DAC is legal - there must be a loophole somewhere. Because their legal existence has surely been challenged many times over the years but they're still around.

HireRight not only does DAC , but they also report people that work in retail. You know, cashiers, stock clerks, etc. anyone that could skim off the top, or steal merchandise I the store room, etc.

What I want to know us, who do I contact if I want to find out my CSA score? I failed two Level 1 Inspections, but it isn't on my DAC.

Yours CSA score, also known as PSP score is not always included on your DAC. You can go to the OOIDA website and there is a link on there you can follow and pay $10 and see what's your score is and the violations that caused the score.

Generally speaking if they don't ask then they're not interested. Tell them exactly what they ask for, nothing more, nothing less. Sometimes companies will ask if you had certain types of violations in the past 5 or 10 years like a DUI , felony, or reckless driving. But if Schneider didn't ask then keep your fingers crossed.
