Welcome to the brotherhood. Like parrothead said, good company. I've been with them almost 2 years

What kind of stuff do I need to take with me to orientation? I wasn't provided with any information yet but I have heard that I need to show up with at least collared shirts. Is that true and what else do I need?

Getting closer to your orientation date, they will send you an information packet by snail mail or email, that will explain your arrival date and time with what to bring. While there, keep a positive attitude, be punctual and a willingness to learn and improve yourself. The second you arrive and the entire orientation , you are being closely observed and scrutinized by the company, so mind your Ps and Qs

How did orientation go for you? I'm looking forward to going

So I found out this past Friday I have been accepted to start orientation with McElroy Truck Lines. Since I am not done with school yet and do not have a set graduation date just yet, I am planning on starting August 1st. If I get done with school sooner, then I will start earlier. Scared, happy, nervous and excited all at the same time. If anyone has any tips or suggestions as to what I need to do to prepare for the start of my new career/lifestyle, I would be happy to hear them.

How has your experience at Maverick been that's the company I plan to go with. The Laurinburg yard is 30 minutes from where I live.

McElroy was my 1st Choice before I switched to Maverick. I've heard good things about them. I rarely see them where I pick up and deliver for some reason.
