Thanks yeah I didn’t put it together either. Since I was so close they had me go home to picked up my cdl

Congratulations, John! I just realized I was talking with you yesterday at the pad while my student was testing. The Ohio State shirt you are wearing in your photo finally allowed me to put two and together. Good luck to you, sir! Your positive attitude and experience with working outdoors on the lines should allow you to be great at this job.

I got a trifecta on my test with Prime. Would like to thank everyone that gave me advice and eased my anxiety, especially fellow Prime drivers. Finally home for a day or two to get my hard copy and then back out.

Stuck in the Pittston holiday inn hotel, my instructor was planning on me testing out this coming weekend but looks like Mother Nature had other plans, hopefully the pad will be clear. Need a lot of backing practice, I did take my first load with him on Thursday. I have a whopping 385 miles driving now lol. But loving every minute at prime. I can’t believe the will pay me to do this.

Prime PSD Day 4 1/28/21

Sorry got back to the hotel last night and passed out. So got cleared yesterday, been at the pad going over pre trip. With the wind can get one done then go inside and once I can feel my fingers out again. Got a text from my trainer I am meeting him at 0530 in the cafe tomorrow and taking a load to Philly and back so will be at the hotel still. Everyone has been amazing from instructors to driver, giving words of encouragement and advice. If you are still on the fence about which company to choose I can’t recommend Prime enough. I already feel like this is my extended family. I hope I can post tomorrow night after my first run. I am nervous, terrified, and have a healthy respect to the 80k bull I’m about to climb on all at once.

Prime PSD Day 2 1/26/21

Got cleared around 1530 and went out. Been there all day pre tripping

I saw a bunch of students at the pad this afternoon (around 13:30). I spent the night at the pad bc parking at the terminal wasn't an option by the time I got there. We're you with that group? I ran inside to get some coffee before heading out, but the machine was in the dreaded "cleaning mode".

Prime Drug Testing

I did a drug test last week before I left for Prime PSD training. I took a second drug test today. There is no mistakes when it comes to drugs and trucking, if you put yourself in a bad situation they are going to find out and if you pop positive it’s all over now with the clearinghouse. As Kearsey mentioned I would take some time to clear out your system but also make the decision that if you choose trucking there are no oops.

Prime PSD Day 2 1/26/21

Finally got a good nights sleep last night. Completed all 46 computer based training by about 8 o’clock did an hour of pre-trip studying and passed out. Today was simulator day ended up passing with 78 points he said I did pretty well for not ever being in a big rig, I did jackknifed the truck once in a blizzard but after the instructor explained what I did wrong I was able to pull out the slide the next time. Now it’s sitting and waiting to be cleared through all the different departments. Got to the terminal early this morning around 530 talking to drivers that were there in the cafe. That’s when I knew I made the right decision not one driver said anything bad, they all welcomed me and said I was with a great company and a great program. That goes really far with me most places when you’re in training everybody looks at you and says hurry get out while you can. The only thing that I have found that I did not like is the whole clearing process, I paid my fee almost 3 weeks ago in my personal opinion I believe all employment, background, and other nonsense needs to be completed by these other departments before I gothere. I could’ve sent them any and all information and they could’ve asked me. I should’ve been able to give my vital documents, my med card, and my CDL and that be the end of it. Still haven’t heard back about the one supervisor that is questioning my background check that my recruiter is ticked off with. Hopefully I should be clear tomorrow which will definitely lower my blood pressure because of course I’m still a little worried that I could be sent home relying heavily on my faith and prayer to get through that. But other then that I have no complaints with this program it is outstanding they really show that they care and as I’m finding the motto is around here everyone has a little skin in the game.

Sorry Prime at Pittston

Thanks!
