McElroy Truck Lines

Hi everyone, looks like it's been a few months since anyone posted under this McElroy thread. After much deliberation during school, I decided on McElroy and I'm headed to Pleasant Hills NC to start orientation this coming Monday the 27th. Very excited and anxious. Any advice from anyone on the current training/etc at McElroy? Got my CDL yesterday. After 22 years in a corporate office staring at a computer, I took a voluntary early retirement offer at 51 yrs old, to pursue truck driving. I always dreamed of it and always thought I might like it, so I took the chance while the opportunity arose, rather than always regretting not. I can say that I was looking forward to Monday mornings all through school, couldn't wait to get back behind the wheel, I absolutely love driving the big rig. I hope that does not change when it's a "job". Whereas at my office job I was dreading Mondays for years...... Thanks for any advice and updates on their program/etc. I live near Reading PA so I imagine I'll be picking up loads for Lowes at Hagerstown MD alot.

Greg, I am considering McElroy also. I would be doing orientation at the Pleasant Hill terminal. Just wondering what your experience was like and if your still with them? Thanks.

McElroy Truck Lines

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?
