SWIFT in cab cameras

Old school is 100% right I worked for CEMEX who has dash cam/ driver and it only comes on when you brake suddenly , hit something or roll the truck. If your worried about it cover up the inside cam at night of when your stopped.

Prime "quick start" training program

Prime is a good training program and you will go to the backing pad and the shifting pad before going straight to the road. Once you learn how to shift you can manage the rest on the road. the Trainer should help U back every time that truck backs up if it's 3 am your ass better get up and back the only way your gonna learn. Just go slow and watch every thing around you. Common sense use it. I'm in my 3rd week. Your gonna be away from home not Showering for 2-3 days. Your not going to know what day of the week it is cause they start running together. U may not remember were you where at 2 wks ago. Your gonna work weekends holidays or maybe stuck sitting the entire holiday in some remote location. That's the trucking truth. I love it every minute of it. If you like never knowing what's next Then you will love this job. It's not for the faint at heart. Man up.

Prime Day 1

Day 4 and all is well I have everything in order including a prospect trainer. I'm hoping it works out and we leave on Saturday. I'm ready to Rock N Roll. Prime has been great . There was only 3 of us that made it out to the pad Initially, If you don't catch on your gonna get run over, things move fast you got to step up. Now for the real challenge getting in the trucking and learning not only how to drive but paper work , reading maps, following more directions. adjusting your life to living on the road. This ain't for the faint at heart. Only the strong will survive !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Prime Day 1

Wow what a busy day up at 530 breakfast then on to paper work, Medical exam, interview, computer classes. 78 people in class. There seems to be a lot of strange people here. All and all it was a good day. They give you instructions and you better be able to follow and keep up, very fast paced and know ones going to hold your hand. The staff here are helpful when asked questions. It seems they want you to succeed. I'm exhausted.

US Xpress OR ????

Yea Brett, I can see the confusion, Lol. Yes we will drive for Prime for at least the year. I was just thinking after our obligation if we don't get miles or we just don't like how they conduct business. I already have had some issues with their recruiting, had to contact the Director of Training and Driver Recruiting. After a very respectful email telling him what bunch of rude unprofessional a@#$ his recruiting staff are he called me and we resolved the issues. So I'm just getting all the intel I can for future reference. Prime a good training company but may not be for the experienced drivers. What do I know? Lol.

Thanks Ernie that's good to know. I'm set to go. I'm waiting on my girl to get her AZ CDL permit, and get everything in order before we take off. We both still have to give our two weeks notice. Kasey just filled out the online app today. She is vigorously study a combination of the AZ CDL guide along with Brett's CDL program.

US Xpress OR ????

So here's the plan After weeks of searching My Girl and decided we are going to Prime Inc for our training we want to Team after that. Anyone have any ideas on a good solid company that we can team up with. I recently heard some good things about US Xpress They pay 7000 for your school and have decent benefits. Believe it or not I also was told good stuff about Werner Enterprises. Any input will help.

Consequence For Having A CDL

As you know from my last post that I'm going back to driving. I already have my CLASS A , Had it since 2005 but have not driven since then and only for a few months. I have talked to almost every Company listed that has a school and not one of them will take me because I have a Class A. I don't get it. I explain to them that I still need school but wont have to test but will even sit through the week of study. I went to AIT here in Phoenix last Friday, They told me I would have to test over for my CDL How the hell does that work I already have a Valid Class A I just got my new medical card. I told them I would pay and take the entire class just wont have to go to the DMV. I have another appointment with them on Tuesday. I have a flawless driving record . No convictions. I'm a prime candidate for any company out there. My girl wants to go to school with me get her CDL and Team drive. She to has a flawless record. Something has to give here. Anyone hear of anything like this? I'm ready to get this **** going and get on the road. Some how some way I will make this happen.

HELP ME OVER COME MY Disappointment

Thanks all for the input. I'm not really concerned with Reefer. Roehl has a flat bed division that's where I really wanted to go. Yes everything happens for reason. I'm going to Knight in the Am. talk with them in person. I believe its not as easy to bull**** someone in person as it is over the phone. Let all know what happens.

HELP ME OVER COME MY Disappointment

Those that read my last post know that after 8 yrs I'm making another attempt at trucking. I'm in a great mind set and my heart is 100% into making this happen. However I was very disappointed Monday morning when I got the call from Roehl Transport saying they would NOT accept me in their school cause I live in Arizona. Because I have very little training I have to go to school all over again. I did so much research on Roehl and no where could I find that they wont take people from this part of the country. I do hold a Class A CDL but if you don't drive its as good as not having one, I do need to train again that's a fact. Ok just a minor set back. I decided now to go to Knight's Training and work for them, My research shows that they, for the most part are good company. Anyone have any input on this I want to hear it. The Good the bad and Ugly. Thank everyone....

TRUCKING AT A SECOND GLANCE ????

Thanks all for the insight. I didn't realize about the 7on thing but its something to think about I cant live off of 17K a year. I'm not discourage at all. I'm very thankful for what I'm told or advised on. WT how is experience at Roehl? Did the Recruiters come through on what they told you.? You like the program and the training?

I filled out apps for them and a few others. I like the 7out 7 home. My Son comes out here for the summers so I need to figure it all out. I just put all this into action. I have spent all day on this site and other company sites reading and learning everything I can, trying to do it the right way this time.

TRUCKING AT A SECOND GLANCE ????

Nine years ago I got my CLASS A CDL, went to two different company schools and was unsuccessful due to issues I was having in life at the time. For the last eight years I have worked in the Arizona Prison system. I'm done!!! I'm ready to man up and go back to becoming a successful truck driver. I still hold a Class A CDL have a Perfect driving record. I'm thinking of going to work for Roehl Transport. I have clearly thought this through and at 48 I'm going to make this career change and retire as a veteran trucker. This site is the start of my quest to become successful.. Advise, comments, welcome.
