Oops sent to soon. Also recently worked at a 7 11 for a couple months. The drugs users told me they were going to get me because I made them leave and told them not to come back when I caught them shop lifting.

Steve, welcome to the forum!

If you are new to trucking you will only need a three year work history, but it needs to be thorough with no unaccounted gaps of time in it. Here is what that means: if you only worked somewhere a month or two then list it, if the application wants to know why you left just put that you were looking for more gainful employment or something along that line. Any time periods where you weren't working should be listed as unemployed/looking for work. The main thing is don't leave a time gap where it is not verifiable what you were doing. List any time periods between jobs as unemployed/looking for work. For folks who just haven't been working, sometimes a few notarized letters from friends or family that state that you were unemployed or taking care of your sick grandmother, or whatever it was that you've been doing will suffice as verifiable evidence for the work history. If a person has been self-employed they will be expected to provide income tax records to verify their employment history.


Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
