    I've been doing so research into McElroy Truck Lines, which is based in Cuba, Alabama. But I need some more information. Does anybody know anything about the company? If so, I would appreciate some help. Thanks!

    Hey CSJ,

    The McElroy recruiter just came by HCC last week and I too am interested in them. They move mostly building materials for Lowes. I'd be working outta the Ennis, TX terminal. They load at the terminal, run the load to where it needs to be delivered and deadhead back, cpm is the same round trip. They say they'll get me home every weekend after training - sent home with a load that is to be delivered Monday, supposedly at a Lowes "near" home. Runs outta the Ennis terminal will be TX, OK, LA, and AR, maybe MO and MS.

    For a nuub, fresh outta school, Wk1 Orientation: $300, Wk2 thru 6 $350, Wk7 $400. Then it's .38cpm 0 -12mo, then it's +01/yr cpm after.

    Call the recruiter, Diane @ 800.992.7863 x158.

    Hope this helps...

    Buddy of mine from school is driving for them. Had orient near Roanoke Rapids, NC. Stay in Motel 6 with another student (food and shopping within walking distance). Said first wk was orient. Second wk equip familiarization and then out with a trainer. He has liked them so far. He is still in the honeymoon phase.

    I have talked with a lot of their drivers. I can only remember one complaining about them. I was at a truck stop and he was telling me that he did not get in as much, but if I remember right he told me he was from PA. One of their trainers lives in my neck of the woods. His wife was my daughters teacher. He gets in every weekend. One driver told me that if you do stay out on the weekend thay give you $50.00 a day or something like that to help compensate not getting in on time. If I was going to drag a skateboard I would drive for them.
     
    Tucker the trucker Thanks this.

    I haven't been able to catch any McElroy drivers. But there is one that parks almost every.... if not EVERY night in a WalMart near me here in Conroe, TX.

    perryd--have you heard anything more from your friend about McElroy? Just wanted to know what all they went over during orientation and equipment familiarization. Where is his driver/trainer from? Did they get home every weekend? Thanks for any input!

    csj - last time I talked to my buddy he didn't go into a lot of detail about orient. Said the second week was driving around the yard practicing different movements, learning tarping, etc. Sounded like it was pretty laid back. His trainer is from the Lexington area and sounded like a nice guy. Letting him do a lot and courteous. I'll post comments after I talk to him again. Do you know anything about Howard Transportation? Based out of Mississippi and have a yard in Kenly NC. That's about all I know.
