Have you ever had a great interview for a trucking position? Been told that you were the ultimate candidate for a trucking position? Been told that you have the job and all you need to wait for is the background check to be completed? It's a great feeling. You've been waiting for the better hourly rate, the overtime, benefits, retirement and a chance to hit the road.
The company doesn’t get back to you. You wait and wait only to find that they hired someone else. You were passed over. But why? They told you the job was yours.. What happened?
You find out later that your background report had you convicted of crimes that you did not commit or that you had pled down to a misdemeanor. You find out that you were reported for crimes that you had expunged decades ago. You find out that you were reported as working for trucking companies that you never worked for.
