McElroy Truck Lines

I have heard nothing but good things about them. Being based in Alabama, I spoke to them recently, thinking about future options a year from now. I must say, I was really impressed.

I'm heading to CDL School in 1 week and I have talked to their recruiters about joining them after school. Since I'm in Indiana, McElroy has started a Midwest route based in Wheatfield, IN. Does anyone know what dedicated account they run?

Going to company sponsored training

Most company-sponsored training programs are with the mega carriers. These guys are usually established enough to where you're not going to have to worry about not having a job just because there was a merger - if that's what you're referring to.

Thanks 6 string for the reply. I want to attend school with financial help to get thru but I would like to switch immediately after completing training and go with another carrier.

Going to company sponsored training

I'm looking to sign up with a company that will sponsor my way to truck driving school and complete the training to get my CDL. I have heard thru the grapevine in the past a few former students that went to training thru a sponsored company called them after graduation and told them they were changing to another company and accepted to drive for them. My question is, has anyone here on the forum done this and did your new company help repay the tuition cost to pay back the sponsored company?
