    63.5 mph? Did a recruiter tell you that? Haha. No. Never. They pride themselves for being the slowest trucking company in the industry. Drove for 3 months with them. Passing another vehicle would be a miracle. 61mph is top speed cruise control, 59 pedal. They ask you to stay below 58 mph. Speed = money. They save money, you lose money.

    I drove for May Trucking and met Y2K and he didnt even know it lol. I had all good experience with may. My first truck was a Pro-Star with 140,000 miles on it then about 6 months later I asked for a Pete and I got one with 62 miles on it. There was a few things that needed checked out on both and never had any problems getting the repairs done. Yes there were times that I sat, nothing more then 34hrs. I got home when I was suppose to and I was even given a extra day , half day to drive home and half day to drive back. When ever I needed any extras for the truck I would get them at a terminal or purchase them myself and was instantly re-embursed. Winshield wiper blades allways had 2 extra sets usually from terminal. I done the 11 western. As far as the guy commenting on the driver that had trouble backing, well who hasnt had a problem backing up, well normally those that take the drive through parking and sit and watch and make fun of those that are struggling. The only down fall was and seems to be their idling policy,however if you were the one paying for the fuel you would like to know why your truck just idled for 10-34 hours. I never had a problem with calling in or sending a message telling them the situation and not being charged for excessive idling. So thats my 2 cents worth. I finally got cleared from my doctor and will be going back with May. I say this no matter what company you drive for or if your O/O, drive safe, have fun, and Happy Hollidays to all of you.

    your kidding right..May?
    only 34 hr resets? how's about twice a week, and if your into a terminal it's a 48hr reset.
    solo miles average 2000 - 2300 per week and trainer miles = 1500 -1800
    thanks for the sign on bonouse or I'd be $5,000 in the hole driving for May.
    as it is I'm only down $2,000..
    refer loads take 5 - 7 hrs to, load / unload.
    home time is a joke right?
    Kids Birthday Party on Mon. and you don't get there till the Fri. after.
    Sorry but May Trucking is a JOKE on the drivers.

    I highly doubt that its that extreme. Resets,sounds like you need to manage your time a little better. Last but not least you must of been rude to a DM. Besides being on this crap site instead of out there making money.

    Crap site? Really? TTR was a godsend to me when I first started in this industry almost 7 years ago. There's a wealth of information on this site.

    Getting back to May, a good friend who's been with May for 5 years called me yesterday and said he's going to work for Crete. They offered him .48 cpm. May was paying him .42 and countered at .45 when he told them he's going. He's still going to Crete. Sometimes you just need a change of scenery in life.
