I had an aggravated battery charge in 2012 that resulted in prison time. 21 months served. Anyway, I won't go into details about how terrible our justice system is.. however, I do know this will present challenges. I am in the home stretch of obtaining my grant...I have my permit. I am supposed to start school January 26th. I know a couple people with a record but they ended up landing good jobs..and stayed local. My driving record is PERFECT. I'm 26 and have had my license for 10 years.

Looking for some direction in regards to good companies to go through and any pointers on disclosing too much information before being hired. The community college I'm going to attend is very helpful and works with many reputable recruiters. I'm in Illinois. West suburbs of Chicago.

Looking to move forward and do something positive. Thanks guys.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices

I'm gonna sound like a broken record here but I abdicate filling out ONLINE apps with various companies and then going over the apps with a recruiter on the phone right away . . . this answers ALL of the questions and allows you to give details not included in the application process . . . even if you don't go with that particular company (I did this with three different companies before choosing Prime, Inc.) this process will give you answers and point out what concerns the companies generally have about a person's past . . . it's a good way to get answers AND don't worry about giving away too much information . . . if the company wants to know something about your past, they generally have ways to get at that information without you . . . this also clears up concerns you might have that they could care less about . . . good luck . . .

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.
