recruiter in Bemidji, Minnesota said: It's not up to the company to decide if they will hire you. The draw back is the insurance company and what their rules dictate. If you're a doctor, attorney, politician, state, federal or local employee you wouldn't have to worry about losing a job for driving while intoxicated offense. The only one is that of the truck driver who has to pay the ultimate price for this offense. Even in your own personal vehicle you will lose that CDL for one year. When have you ever heard of the above mentioned professional losing his license to practice for driving while intoxicated....never. The truck driver that is laid over and walks to the local establishment for one to many drinks and then goes back to his truck and sleeps it off in the bunk can be charged with DUI/DWI for just being in the truck. The truck driver will lose his CDL for one year and then wait four more years for a company to hire him/her, ware as the above mentioned professionals go on living a normal life. It sucks to be a truck driver who is always under the microscope on the road, at the scales or the good old DOT roadside stop and harass checks. Have you ever heard of the above mentioned professionals being stopped (without) probable cause and have their vehicles gone through and then issued an out of service order for a tail light, worn tires, headlight out and then issued a citation for $400.00. Unheard of. So my advise, if you want a job where you can show up intoxicated and vote on national security issues become a politician. If you want a respectable job where people appreciate their goods being shipped and received on time by some hard working person then by all means stay with trucking. I wish you all the luck...be safe and keep on trucking.

I am new to trucking. I had two preventables with trailer damage only, and I got canned by my company. Any advice about getting back behind the wheel? If so, please e-mail oneal.timothy@yahoo.com

All you need to do is to apply for jobs with companies who state openly that they will hire with a prior DUI after a specified period of time. The company I recruit for has a 2 year limit on them, that is your DUI must be a minimum of 2 years old before our underwriters will accept you on our insurance.
With us, if your DUI is at least 2 years old, and IS YOUR FIRST and if you have no other MAJOR tickets in the last 3 years, I normally have no problems getting a driver signed on. Each company has its' own policies, like anything else in life, if you want it bad enough to try, you will find it :>) Best of luck to you in your employment search! I just wanted to assure you that that you should not give up all hope!

Well everything sounded good until he started talking about doctors, lawyers, politicians, and law enforcement. Complete BS what was said. Every profession has rules and regulations and people DO loose their license in all of those. I have worked in Law Enforcement and in the Medical Field, and now am in Trucking, and I can assure you, THEY HAVE RULES TOO! You don't hear about it, because the media does not focus on it. Search for yourself, you'll find a ton!

Guys, most companies will not hire you until 3 to 5 years after your conviction. If you were fired without a conviction I hope you attended a SAP(Substance Abuse Professional) program. The SAP information should have been provided to you when you were terminated so you could obtain treatment.

If you failed a drug test you should have had a conversation with a MRO(Medical Review Officer). The best option will be to start over with a training program if you have a drug/alcohol failure in your history and completed the required waiting period for the company. Why? Most companies want to see recent driving experience within the last two years.

Jack Of All in Columbus, Ohio said: No company is allowed to hire you with a DUI that is not greater than atleast 3 years, but most will not take you unless it is atleast 5-10. Your best bet is to lease a truck and trailer and contract yourself out for hire until that incident is a little further in your past. Or you could always switch careers. Unfortunately, there are very few companies these days that will hire someone with a record like yours. It is unfortunate to hear about your DUI conviction and I wish the best in your job search.

Do you need good credit to lease equipment?

No company is allowed to hire someone with a dui that is not 3yrs. or more old? Is that a DOT Regulation or insurance company that made that rule?

I certainly don't agree with that statement. There was a judge out in Yakima,Wa who presides over DUI cases that was arrested for DUI in 2011 and he is still on the bench but don't let a truck driver do it though in his/her personal vehicle because that would have an extreme effect on there safety when they were to get back behind the wheel of their semi 24 hours later. If alcohol is SO TERRIBLE, why don't they totally ban it. OH, that's right...........MONEY. If we allow society to indulge in alcohol, there is a great possibility that they may drive and we could produce millions of dollars in DUI fines and costs. Even if a few lives are lost due to alcohol, it is better to have the possibility of generating millions of dollars.

I'm going to be getting my CDL in Nov. Of this year (2013) and have a prior Reckless Driving conviction from this past march stemming from a traffic stop in Virginia. I was going 81 in a 60 at 3 am; only car on the road in Greene Co. On US 29. I was surprised b/c in MD and other states that would simply be chalked up to a speeding ticket and 2 points. I had an opportunity to appear and plead guilty with an explanation that would help my changes of getting the charge reduced to an infraction. (It is a class 1 misdemeanor in VA, up there with the ranks of Marijuana possession/Dist., assault, etc.) I was coming back from Miami.

I didn't fight it back then b/c i didn't think it was going to be worth anything. 3 months later I find myself unemployed and decide to get career training as a truck driver. Got my MD state learners permit last week and then began combing this forum and other forums only to find that my reckless driving conviction may prevent me from reaping the benefits of this training and make finding job placement after I obtain my CDL a difficult feat. Does anybody have any advice for getting hired with a reckless?

I'd prefer all you immature trolling flaming types who ain't got nothing constructive to say or any real advice to offer; save your insults and trash talk for the next bloke. I'm too grown for childish shenanigans

I do admissions for a trucking school in KY. What is the name of your company and do you take student drivers? If so, do you take them from KY. I also get students with prior experience that are just returning for a refresher. Does your company offer pre-hires based on the information submitted on the application?

Dumbest statement on this page! Let's ban something that millions of people use responsibly because some of us weren't responsible enough not to drive our personal vehicles when drunk even though we knew it would effect our careers! Let's have the government be responsible for all of everyones decisions because we weren't responsible enough for ourselves. Get over yourself and assume responsibility. You, as I did, messed up. Not the government because they haven't banned alcohol completely! Guess they should take away our first and second ammendment rights too while they're at it? Since people hurt others feelings with freedom of speech and when a person pulls a trigger someone might get bloody. "Alcohol" isn't the problem it is driving after drinking. Dust off you vag and accept the punishment for YOUR crime and stop worrying so much about everyone else. Your profession has strict consequences for DUI and yes the punishment is different for other career choices, but then you already knew that before you chose to drive after drinking. If you didn't, that's your fault too! I don't mean to single you out completely. My statements are for everyone complaining over the CHOICE THEY MADE!!!

RecruitTheBestDrivers in Saint Paul, Minnesota said: All you need to do is to apply for jobs with companies who state openly that they will hire with a prior DUI after a specified period of time. The company I recruit for has a 2 year limit on them, that is your DUI must be a minimum of 2 years old before our underwriters will accept you on our insurance .
With us, if your DUI is at least 2 years old, and IS YOUR FIRST and if you have no other MAJOR tickets in the last 3 years, I normally have no problems getting a driver signed on. Each company has its' own policies, like anything else in life, if you want it bad enough to try, you will find it :>) Best of luck to you in your employment search! I just wanted to assure you that that you should not give up all hope!

I have a prior DUI, early mid 2012, in my personal vehicle, a possession of marijuana charge(less than 1gram, dismissed due to taking classes). Are there any companies that will hire even at a LOW rate of pay? Those are only 2 offenses on my record.

I was in the process of going to school when a DUI popped up that I thought was dismissed. I paid my fine and left court that day with nothing every coming up in background checks and even got my CDL permit that morning at the DMV and they ran an NCIC. Anyway the DUI will be 2 years old in April and I have no other offenses on my record. Not even a speeding ticket. Looking for a job, any job to get and use my CDL.
