I've been applying to jobs and not having any luck because of a pair of minor no-injury accidents from 2013, both of which were in my personal vehicle.

Anyone know of some companies who can work with me, despite those accidents on my record?


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

3-5 years typically.

I'm assuming that YOU WERE AT FAULT for both of these?

Yes I was at fault in both accidents. I've applied at Prime and the recruiter I'm working with didn't even bring the accidents up during her interview.

Hopefully I'll hear something soon.

Like Rick said most companies want to see 3 to 5 years with accidents some even longer... I wouldn't wait on one company to get back to you... We have a program on this site that allows you to apply to as many companies as you want with one application and I would hit up as many as I could and see what they say.... Don't wait for them to call you wait 24 hours then bug the poop out of them till they tell you no... Here's the link for that program... Apply For Truck Driving Jobs don't give up and bug the poop or odd them. Make them how you and don't hide anything from them cuz they will find out...

Thanks for the tips Scott. I filled out that application earlier this week in fact. And I just heard back from Prime. She said I would have to wait until November, when one of my tickets expires to be classified as hireable. So I'm off to find some more oppurtunities!
