Q : I am a CDL driver looking for a job. Is there a cost for your service?

Q : After I fill out an application, what companies will receive it?

A : You have the ability to specifically select the companies you would like to send your application to, as long as you meet their minimum requirements. If you are not comfortable with doing your own job search, you have the ability to activate JOBbot, which will submit your application for you to the companies for which you qualify.

Q : After I fill out my application, is my information secure? Who will have access to my information?

Q : How can I be sure that my application was successfully sent to the companies I selected?

A : You can check the status of your application by logging in to your account and selecting ‘Review Sent Applications' on your account screen.

Q : When I check my application history, there is a note that says, "Pending Review By Staff." What does this mean? Did my application go through successfully?

A : The "Pending Review By Staff" is a note that for lack of a better phrase, is used to let you know that your submission was successful, however it has not yet gone out to that particular company. The longest your application might pend will be three days.

Q : I am attempting to fill out an application, but your system is telling me that I already have an existing account and prompts me for my username and password. For one, I don’t think I have an existing account and secondly, if I do, I can’t remember my username and password. Help!

A : If you do not recall your username and password, simply email your full name, phone number, and one other piece of information (such as street address, date of birth, or SSN) for identification purposes to info@EveryTruckJob.com, and we will respond with your username and password. You may also have your username and password emailed to the address you created your account with by using our automated password retrieval system.

Q : I have used many services to look for a driving job but I'm having no luck at all. What would keep me from finding a truck driving job?

If you are having more difficulties than normal, there may be something in your driving record, MVR, or DAC that is holding you back. The following are examples of items that might keep a company from contacting you for employment:

  • 1 or more felonies in your lifetime
  • A drug related felony conviction
  • 10 years or older felony conviction
  • Child pornography related conviction
  • Convicted of a violent crime
  • Firearm related conviction
  • Murder / Rape / Misconduct / Burglary / Robbery / Capital Theft conviction
  • Assault & Battery
  • Conviction/ investigated / or suspected of involvement in/ of terrorist activities
  • Currently on probation or parole
  • More than $5,000 of damage from a preventable accident in last 5 years
  • 3 or more moving violations in last 3 yrs
  • 3 or more preventable accidents in last 5 years
  • Truck abandonment in last 5 years
  • License suspension is less than 3 years old
  • 1 or more moving violations over 15 mph in last 3 years
  • A DUI/DWI within the last 5 years or more than 2 DUI/DWIs ever.
  • Fired in the last 5 years
  • Ever failed a drug screen

Q : I am a new user filling out the application and it keeps asking me to fill in my username and password before I can continue? I don't have a username or a password? Do I just make one up?

A : Yes. When you fill out an application with EveryTruckJob, you are creating your account. Choosing a username and password allows you the freedom to come back at any time to update your application information, review your application history, and perform new job searches.

Q : I am trying to login, but nothing is happening. The page just keeps reloading every time I hit the button to login?

A : More than likely you will need to adjust the security settings on your internet browser. You can do this in most browsers by selecting “tools” from your window bar, and clicking “internet options” to open a tabbed window. Click on the “privacy” tab and adjust the slider to medium level.

Q : I completed the application and have submitted it to several companies, but when I went back to review my application, I realize I made a mistake. How can I send a corrected copy to each company I've already been sent to?

A : Please email driverrelations@everytruckjob.com, notating the correction that was made and when you made it. Please include your full name. Driver Relations will email each company a personal note detailing the problem with an updated copy of the application.

Q : I have previous driving experience, but I've been off the road for more than a year. Will I be able to find a job?

A : More than likely. Most recruiters like to see experience within the last 6 months, but as long as you express a willingness to undergo training, or if necessary, schooling, it shouldn't be a problem. You can place a special notation on your application by including it in the “reason for leaving” box at the end of either your first or your second past employer. Keep it simple, for example: “I have been off the road for more than a year due to a family illness. I will be willing to do whatever it takes to get back on the road.”

Q : I am a recent graduate, and every company I seem to contact wants experience. How am I supposed to even get experience if every company requires it?

A : You will need to fill out an EveryTruckJob.com application under the category of “student/recent graduate”. By doing this, you will be sent to companies that can hire recent school graduates.

Q : I want to become a truck driver. Where do I start?

A : Go to a good school! Find an accredited CDL institution or a company willing to put you through training. Vocational schools and community colleges usually offer some sort of CDL training course, so look for those types of institutions in your area. Perform a search on our site for companies hiring for “students/recent graduates” from your state and make a few phone calls or write an email stating that you are interested in attending training and wanted to know if that particular company offered a program. I also recommend checking out our sister site www.everytruckingschool.com.

Q : I want to become an owner operator, but have no idea where to get started? I know I don't want to do a lease purchase program.

A : I have read several good articles about becoming an owner operator at some of the industry's magazine websites. Go to www.rpmfortruckers.com, www.bigrigowner.com, and www.drivingforcemag.com and search through their archived articles. There are also several books out on the subject of owner operators, I believe some of which are recommended in the aforementioned articles. We also have a sister site at www.everyowneroperatorjob.com with useful information about CDL and endorsement tests, as well as some advice on getting into the field.
