Airborne I've heard all types of language from all types of people so as long as you're not running off at head when you're around the office or customers should be fine.

Nope. No reason no one is working for them. Could be they are much small than other flatbed companies and people are picking the large more well known companies.

I don't think they would have anything to do with me cause there are times I talk like a sailor tbh, lol

What is their policy about sleep apnea?

Sleep Apnea:

A physical disorder in which you have pauses in your breathing, or take shallow breaths, during sleep. These pauses can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. Normal breathing will usually resume, sometimes with a loud choking sound or snort.

In obstructive sleep apnea, your airways become blocked or collapse during sleep, causing the pauses and shallow breathing.

It is a chronic condition that will require ongoing management. It affects about 18 million people in the U.S.

I do know of one driver that has a company installed power inverter for a CPap machine

CPAP:

Constant Positive Airway Pressure

CPAP is a breathing assist device which is worn over the mouth or nose. It provides nighttime relief for individuals who suffer from Sleep Apnea.

As of right now I am going to Pleasant Hill, NC on August 1st to start my orientation with McElroy. I might graduate sooner from trucking school and if I do then I might try to move it up to July 25th. Super excited but nervous as hell at the same time.

Do you have an update on how things are at McElroy?
