    Was reading your thread from last year about Mcelroy. how is that company? I too have read a few bad things about them .but im trying to stay open minded. i went to a school too where we learned log books, trip planning etc. i was just curious about the road test. My Dot road test was 19 miles around tuscaloosa Al. lots of red lights and stop go traffic and it was 730 mid morning traffic. How is their road test? graduated 3 weeks ago and have narrowed it down to IWS in tuscaloosa and Mcelroy. Thanks for all the advice you could give! hope all is well!

    Well, I tried to reply earlier, but I guess it didn't take. I'd say it's a good company. Only reason I'm not still there is b/c I wanted to pull tankers. The initial road test is empty. After that they're loaded. No biggie tho.
     
    Auburnfan205 Thanks this.

    If you're asking me, no. I was with them for six months, them took a gig pulling tankers, which is what I really wanted to do.

    When I worked there it was 62 and I'm sure that hasn't changed.

    62? I liked the look of McElroy but not to be a road hazard

    My company has us at 70, sadly I'm one of the fastest trucks on the Ohio turnpike.
