Think again, a DUI is a misdemeanor and stays on your record for life. I had a DUI 15 years ago, and I still have to explain it every time I interview for a job.

I have a question for you guys. How hard would be for a guy with no license to get a job as a tech? I have about 6 years of experience in the field and plan on going to school for Automotive Technology, would it be worth it? I'm thinking I will just take the jump, but my dad said the field is declining or is the fact that you have to stay on top of the field what causes people to drop?

They won't hire you without a license, it is a requirement for obvious reasons. If you get a DUI or excessive points on your license you will get fired.

no, the employer cannot fire you for DUI because of discrimination law. You could sue them if they do.

I have had tons of interviews but no luck. I have 2 dui's non felony. People are interested in hiring me till they see the 2 dui's on my record and then its forget this guy. I know the. Shops insurance is high for someone with dui but why can't someone just give me a chance. I graduated from UTI with honors and have 11 ford credentials n three other certifications and none of that matters. I don't know what to do anymore and there's no money to go back to school for somthin else..

I ma in the same boat as you. I just talked to my previous employer about going back but he said the insurance company said I have to wait 3 years after the conviction then it is up to the service manager if he wants to hire me back. I do not know if all insurance companies have the same policy
