In some cases, 2 to 3 months or longer. Like Doc stated, they will check everything they can about you. They will go back up to 10-years checking your driving record. I know this sounds corny, but when you join ABF, ABF becomes a part of you. Both good and bad. But compared to other employers, it is mostly good. Think of ABF as a sit-com family. You may have the crazy cousin or grumpy uncle, or rebellious little brother, but it is still your family and you are proud to be a part of it. The best part is, once your 30 day probation is up, you pretty much have a job that you can retire with. You have to really, really screw up bad to lose your job. And with our progressive discipline, you pretty much know ahead of time if you are heading down the wrong path. At least that is my experience so far at ABF. And it will be 28-years in June for me.
