    Hi ASnead...

    Best not to include personal contact information in your posts.

    Much will depend on what the felony was for and how long ago the even took place. You might want to start by simply checking out the websites of some trucking companies, as many will list their requirements, including information regarding passed offenses. One site you could start at is called Fleet Directory and then focus on Virginia.

    Again, depending on the circumstances, you might need to at least start with a local company.

    First economy bad, so jobs in general slow. So you will have to hunt and look.
    Some that may, may not have to right now.

    Expect those normally to be the lower paying with less benefit. Perhaps local carrier or things with dump trucks or tow trucks. Also visit some truck stops, they will have trade publications with recruiters info and company info in them.

    Okay, first of all, why are there so many "convicted felons" on this web?
    I'm saying the same thing as DougaLC. Depends.
    I don't know much about felonies, but from my point of view,
    You can probably do it. Good luck! :)

    There is a great amount of jailhouse lawyering about how felons allegedly can get "special" treatment with trucking jobs. Fat chance!!
