This company sounds like a good one. I'm looking at different companies to work for now. I should be done with my school this week...YES !! Does anybody know if they have routes out to west coast for delivery. I live in Nevada.

I don't think they run that far out. They're primarily down south and recently jumped in big time into the midwest.

Week 1 graduate......,Yeah RedBeard on our road test I think that was everybody's biggest problem I know part of it's being new to driving but also this ProStar you're shifting pretty quick with those RPM so low it just take a little bit to get used to

yea they drop fast Mcelroy has high expections for its trainees and those who dont make it get cut we had started with 12 and only 7 went to trainers. The group after me started with 12 also and only 5 made it to 1st week but one did have to leave cause of the guard so he is coming back. Now i am hoping that all seven come back for final week plus the two boys from your neck of the woods and the two guys from north carolina.
