IN DECEMBER OF 2005 I WAS TERMINATED FROM THIS COMPANY DUE TO LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN MY JOB. THIS ALL CAME ABOUT WHEN I WAS INJURED ON THE JOB PULLING A PALLET DOWN THE ROLLERS OF THE RACKS TO SELECT A PART FOR A STORE THAT I WAS ASSIGNED TO PICK FOR WHEN I FELL BACKWARDS ONTO A HOOK AT THE END OF THE ROLLERS.I THEN REPORTED THE ACCIDENT A DAY LATER AFTER HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MY BACK AND WAS UNABLE TO WORK MY JOB. I THEN WAS SENT TO THE HOSPITAL FOR WORKERS COMPENSATION AND WAS RELEASED AND PUT ON LIGHT DUTY FOR 2 WEEKS. EVERYTHING SEEMED TO BE GOING FINE, SO I THOUGHT. THE DAY THAT I CAME OFF OF LIGHT DUTY I STARTED MY NORMAL ROUTINE BACK ALL OVER AGAIN, I WAS ASSIGNED A STORE AND STARTED PICKING ORDERS WHEN AROUND 9:30 A.M., OUR FIRST BREAK I WAS CALLED INTO THE OFFICE TO SIGN PAPERWORK FOR THE WORKERS COMPENSATION BENEFITS THAT I RECIEVED WHEN I WAS SENT TO THE HOSPITAL FOR TREATMENT, LITTLE DID I KNOW I WAS GOING INTO THE OFFICE TO SIGN MY TERMINATION PAPERS. EVEN AFTER I WAS TERMINATED A BALANCE FOR MY DOCTOR BILLS WAS REPORTED IN COLLECTIONS ON MY CREDIT BECAUSE THE COMPANY DID NOT PAY THE DOCTORS LIKE THEY SAID THEY WOULD. YES I COULD HAVE SUED BUT I DIDN'T AND NOW THEY TELL ME AFTER TWO YEARS THAT I CANNOT BE REHIRED WITH THEM FOR A TRUCK DRIVERS POSITION OPEN CURRENTLY AT THIS COMPANY IN LEXINGTON,TN. MY QUESTION IS WHY THAT IS? I HAVE THE CREDENTIALS FOR THE JOB WITH OVER A YEAR OVER THE ROAD. PLEASE IF ANYONE CAN HELP ME LET ME KNOW, I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE AN EXPLANATION.

The online app looks like BS and never is taken into consideration, would it be better to go in store for a app and try to get a job there that way or what?
As well, do they hire under 16 or not?
