Just being straight up without going into too deep on-line, but maybe someone out there has been through a similar experience with a criminal backround (we're talking 10 years ago). It is pretty extensive. I aced my CDL class A test and am looking for work - but my past keeps coming up. I've been turned down by several companies because of this. I have reputable character references and still am having trouble. If anyone has gone through something similar, please respond. Maybe somebody knows of companies that work with people with past legal problems, but can show they have been trying to do the right thing for a number of years now.
