  • Tow truck companies hiring felons Arizona

    I was approached today by a family member who owns/operates a tow truck company. He inquired of me the laws regarding hiring felons (people with felony criminal records) for driving his tow trucks.

    He is under the impression that Arizona state law will not allow him to hire anyone with a felony conviction on his/her record.

    I cannot find a law that states this...anyone know anything about it?
    Not everything in America is actionable in a court of law. Please remember that attorneys are in business for profit, and they get paid regardless of whether or not you win or lose.

    I worked for a very large towing company that had locations in Arizona.

    They did hire ex-felons to tow but they needed to have a valid driver license of the proper class depending on the vehicle they were driving. Felony could not be related to driving.

    Not sure if it was right or wrong, but it happened.

    Recruiting tow drivers in Arizona is difficult and the turnover rate is very high. A couple of weeks getting under cars, laying down on scalding blacktop, dealing with the folks who are angry about being towed is too much to handle for most.

    The ones who stick with towing need to have a thick skin and really enjoy it, because between the heat and the temperature the job is a tough sell.

      No law that I know of either, CatBert. I believe it's more or less whether they want to hire someone with a felony conviction from what I can gather.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
