    I'm messing kind of. It depends I think on what you are applying for. Back in the day no they usually wouldn't. These days.........depends. Driver probably not, handler maybe.

    I could be wrong, but I think they only rule you out if you have a felony.

    I'm not in Tampa, but have an old (20+ yrs) DUI and got hired as a courier 5 years ago. Just don't lie hoping they will miss it.

    That doesn't matter. If you're doing something illegal off duty, what will you do while on duty? It's viewed as a character flaw.
    Hire an attorney and get it sealed/expunged.

    Well guess wat I passed everything and will start working Dec 12 2014....being honest about your charge to the company really helps.....they told the charged showed up but adjudication was withheld. So I really wasn't convicted

    You will probably get hired with a signing Bonus plus a top pay rate and then within in a week become management if it was a Felony you would be put right into management
