Accidents stay on your record a day after forever.
The info a company has on a person would probably amaze you. And even if they are to purge the file we will say every year......They may be short of help and it stays around for a while. Here at my FT job, they have everything back to day 1.
So when USA Today shows a full page ad of Circle of Honor drivers the part that says "25 years without an accident" may not be totally true?
