I am pretty sure yoiu will agree with me immediately. Your recruiter is simply referring to the freight they deal with at that company. They may not be a good fit for you due to that reason.

I do agree with you. I have only seen one of their trucks in my home area as compared to numerous Swift, Stevens, Prime, and CFI. The lack of visibility makes me think that I will have a difficult time getting loads home.

Now, if they keep me around Disneyland, I may be able to make that a home away from home. Oh, the torture.

Hope that covers the info about starting with Prime, and sorry about the wall of text!

Thanks NaeNaeInNC, no worries about the wall of text, I have spent a ton of time reading so many different posts and blogs on this site, yours is current. I got a few nuggets from the post, thank you.

As a question to anyone, some of the logic that I am use is based on what trucks I see in my area. A couple of the companies, I just don't see often and I really wonder about home time.

As an example, the company with the most aggressive recruiter (once again, not complaining) has told me numerous times that 90% of the loads are on the left side of the nation. I live on the east coast. Is the logic that only 10% of the loads are to the east will make it much more difficult to get quality home time well guided, or over thought?

I am a NOOB, almost. After 21 years of driving fast cars and playing with guns, it is time for a career change. Filled out a form on this site and I am being flooded with emails and calls from companies wanting me to drive (no complaints). Of course, I have zero experience driving a big, so I will need training.

The megas seem to be the answer for what I am looking for, but which one? And are they the answer?

I have ruled some out as I just don't see them as a fit. Others, I am still strongly considering. What do you, as experienced drivers have to say?

There are some ground rules though.

1-Give me real meat to chew on, not just opinion that's anywhere on the internet. I need the who, what, when, where, why and how from you.

2-I am leaning toward CFI, Prime, and Swift. I would like to hear about those, but will not rule out others.

3-Company School or private school?

4-Did I mention #1?

Thanks ya'll
