Any information on ptl out of Tuscaloosa al. Has anyone drove for them? Past or present?

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I did a search on the forums and found this and it does mention a few things that may give you the info you are searching for.

Recruitment Info

PTL Diary

Both are done by a driver named Rico.

Sorry Recruitment info was from Rico and the diary was from Scott B...... BRETT I NEED an edit button, my fingers type and click submit faster than my brain is willing to say, "Hey I need to preview what I write!" rofl-3.gif .

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.

Auntie, when you open a New Reply box, down at the bottom there's either an EDIT or PREVIEE button. Touch on that to see what your post will look like. Brett has it set up so that once you hit the Submit button, it's locked forever - no more changes.

I don't see any information for PTL out of Alabama. I drive for PTL out of Murray, KY. They do hire from all over.
