Schnieder family dollar dedicated

Absolutely the worst account you could get on...I hear from alot of drivers at the terminals and all that it's not worth it....

Depending on where you live, there should be alot of other options as far as dedicated accounts go

Dealing with divorce

Hell. You can msg me or call me anytime. I'm also a prime driver as well

The road will get to you for sure. I'm a rookie but sometimes when you're driving, you think about every decision you've made in your life. It can wear ya down if you don't control it.

Some days I try to speak to everyone I see, other days, I can't even people. Lol

Divorce is the reason I choose this job...wait..never mind. You don't choose trucking, trucking chooses you!

There's a new young driver out there

Beware!

My student finally got dropped off at the terminal two days ago. I'm now on some much needed hometime. Like with all students, you teach them a million things but at the same time they teach you about yourself. Time to think back and figure out what I could have done better and what I will do differently for my next student. Was a good experience though. I handle team driving a lot better than I thought I would.

Will be in Springfield 9/15-9/17 to haul away my next victim.

Going back OTR

Hey good people. Im in need of some advice..

Last year I got my CDL through prime. Did great, however i unfortunately had to leave early due to my son's mother being on drugs and i had to take partial custody of him. Got a local delivery job and...how can I say, miss the road and the money alot. I told myself I'd give it a year and since i haven't, i feel like a failure. So I've been applying to different companies and I've talked to CRST, Stevens, and swift. I like them all but am still confused. Can i go out with a trainer for a few weeks to refresh my skills? Or do i have to go through the whole training program?

Just thought id ask here from people with experience than to hear it from recruiting. ....

Thanks guys

P.s. id rather run teams...more money and i don't like to sit much. You seen one truck stop, ya seen em all

Flatbed for prime

I'm up here at Prime Inc just arrive and gonna do flatbed but a lot of people are up here waiting on a instructor and Tnt one guy has been up here for 2 weeks. Does any one know any flatbed drives that do TnT? I would like to start trucking as soon as possible

You can do refer PSD but if u wanna go solo flatbed you have to do flatbed TNT.... That's your best bet to getting a trainer. Not alot of psd flatbed trainers. Most flatbed guys do TNT only. ..

Prime trainee day 3 OTR

Wow. So I arrived at Prime Inc orientation on the 16th. I lucked out and got a trainer (awesome one at that) and I've been driving since Wednesday morning. I must say, I LOVE it. Besides dealing with alot of crap at home and once the initial feeling wears off, I'm sure I'll still enjoy it. I've learned ALOT in the 3 days driving and I'm excited that there is so much more to learn. I've wanted to do this for a few years now and my only regret is not doing it sooner!

Thanks to everyone on this forum.for the help and support you all have given.

P.s. I didn't realize how bad people in cars are jerks when driving by trucks. Definitely made me realize how much regular car drivers affect those driving a truck! !!
