Oh I live in smyrna. I think it's best if you ask me specific questions about tmc as i try to avoid giving biased information and that's hard to do without a well focused topic.

Welcome & good luck. There's not much on here about McElroy, I think mainly because it's a smaller company. I've been with them for almost 1 year and can honestly say I have been happy with the company. If you do a topic search for McElroy Truck Lines in the forum page it should bring up the thread that has the best information about the company. Everything from orientation etc. Glad to help in any way I can.

I've spoken with a few mcelroy drivers in my area and they are fairly satisfied with the company. One guy said the hardest part is living on $400+-/week for seven weeks until you get in your own truck.

Prehire:

What Exactly Is A Pre-Hire Letter?

Pre-hire letters are acceptance letters from trucking companies to students, or even potential students, to verify placement. The trucking companies are saying in writing that the student, or potential student, appears to meet the company's minimum hiring requirements and is welcome to attend their orientation at the company’s expense once he or she graduates from truck driving school and has their CDL in hand.

We have an excellent article that will help you Understand The Pre-Hire Process.

A Pre-Hire Letter Is Not A Guarantee Of Employment

The people that receive a pre-hire letter are people who meet the company's minimum hiring requirements, but it is not an employment contract. It is an invitation to orientation, and the orientation itself is a prerequisite to employment.

During the orientation you will get a physical, drug screen, and background check done. These and other qualifications must be met before someone in orientation is officially hired.

Unless they've changed it within the last year, training pay at McElroy is $500/week.

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.
