Trucking Jobs May be Perfect for Ex-offenders and Felons

Trucking Jobs May be Perfect for Ex-offenders and Felons


Piedmont trucking company 

I got out Feb. '16 and went and talked to my old boss. I worked for a paving company and it was the the wrong time of year to put me on so I started to draw unemployment and thinking about how to get out of doing labor work. I paved for 2 yrs but I'm a 17 yr journeyman roofer that's another part maybe will talk about that later. The long and short is I have my CDL (Commercial Driver License) with all my endorsements. If I can just get a shot who ever I work for will love me. I've never been fired and have good references but they won't even talk to me can you help me my school sure ain't. I really want to long haul but ain't choosy. I'm 48. The kids are grown and the ex is gone. It's perfect for me. I've always wanted to see the states. Please help if you can or point me in the right direction. I think I've applied on most of the sights.

Hello Glen,

Your situation may be perfect for a trucking career. Often I meet ex-offenders and felons who have opted for driving jobs.

Here is a page with a good list of trucking companies. A large number of them hire ex-offenders and felons. There are even notations regarding their hiring policies.

Each trucking company makes its own rules regarding felony convictions. Some will employ a driver after 5 years or longer since the conviction. Other companies won't hire felons, regardless. You just need to get on the phone and start contacting carriers.

Without experience you are somewhat limited as to will hire you. Having the felony conviction reduces your pool of companies further. The best thing you can do is make some phone calls.

Best of luck to you.

Felon with Withheld Adjudication seeks Trucking Jobs

Felon with Withheld Adjudication seeks Trucking Jobs



Felon with Withheld Adjudication seeks Trucking JobsHello, I was reading your site and have a question. I have a felony that was withheld adjudication on a constructive possession (a passenger in my car had drugs) a little over 4 yrs ago and that's it. But I can't get a job anywhere I've looked. I also don't have a CDL but can get one either through job training or school. I know about Carolina Cargo but that's it. Do you have any info on any other companies out there who will take a non experienced driver or newly trained driver with a background showing I plead guilty  but was with held? I was unaware at the time that this was pretty much no different than pleading guilty and being adjudicated with a sentence.


 Thanks.

Hello,

Withheld Adjudication is not necessarily a terrible thing.  I get a number of inquiries regarding withheld adjudication / deferred judgement /deferred adjudication. Ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs should understand what it means because it could affect their ability to be hired for some jobs. Withheld adjudication / deferred judgement/deferred adjudication generally relates to a determination by a judge to place a person on probation without a judgement of guilt. There will be terms set by the court, usually a fine and a period of probation. Once the conditions are fulfilled, the charges are normally dismissed. There will be no conviction related with that offense. If conditions are not met, a finding of guilty may be entered and the person may be sentenced according to the penalties specified for the offense.

So when completing an application that asks if you "Have you ever been convicted of a crime, you can answer "no" and rightly so because you haven't. The original charge will appear on a background check simply as a charge and not a conviction.  To absolutely certain of the status, you should check with the prosecutor or your probation officer associated with your case.  This is not intended as legal advice, simply general information. If you really concerned about the charge itself (employers are rarely concerned with charges.  They care more about convictions) you may look into having your charges sealed by the court.  Sealing is a legal process that conceals the charges from public view.  The charge will only be visible to the court system, law enforcement and government agencies.

As for trucking jobs for felons, the site below has a good list of trucking companies. A large number of them have hired ex-offenders and felons. Some have their hiring policies as they relate to ex-offenders and felons included.


 Each of the companies listed makes its own rules regarding felony convictions and the hiring of felons. Some will employ a driver after 5 years or longer since the conviction. Other companies won't hire felons, regardless. You must contact each carrier to find out exactly what their policy is concerning the hiring of felons.
 
I hope this helps.
