Any other suggestions for choosing a trucking company...

Who did you speak with at Prime? I believe you got some false infomation. I currently drive for them.

Maverick, Boyd Brothers or Roehl

This is funny because I was just getting ready to post about Boyd Brothers. I had a friend refer me to them. I do not know much about them but would like to speak to someone who has worked for them.

I would like advice from a seasoned driver that knows something about these companies and which one would be best to start my driving career. I'm 50 and just getting into this industry. Any help is appreciated. I would like to make my decision ASAP so I can get rolling, I'm not making any money setting at home. Maverick, Boyd Brothers or Roehl?

Prime Vacation

Just curious. I've been with Prime less than a year, so how does vacation work? I know I don't get vacation pay until after a year but can I take more than 4 days off for a trip?

Regional/Local in VA

I drive for Prime right now. Being gone for a month before I can go home isn't really ideal for me but I'm not opposed to being gone for a couple of weeks at a time either. Just weighing my options. If I drove hourly, I wouldn't drive for any less than $20 a hour. Where I live in Richmond,VA, CDL drivers are in high demand but most of them want a year under your belt.

I've had my cdl for about 6 weeks now. Do you know what the pay was?

I didn't ask and he didn't say. Sorry man. Ready Mix starts out at $14 an hour, so I'd guess SB Cox would be around the same. James River Transportation (bus company) also hires and trains new people if you'd be willing to drive charter buses and limos. But they start training every January, and January only. So you'd have to wait a year.

Then there are the school buses. Henrico and Prince George always seem to be looking for people.

I don't mean to be rude, but what has been going on for the past six weeks? Has it been hard to pass orientations for the major companies, or are you just determined to drive only local?

Also, Siewers (a lumber company) was pretty professional when they heard from me, but I didn't get a definite answer.

I spoke with the fleet manager (I think) at SB Cox, a cement company, and they said they'd train new drivers to drive the cement mixers. But you'd need to wait until you finish school to apply, or so the man said. Ready Mix occasionally hires new guys for their mixers too.

Prime light trucks

I haven't been inside one of these LW that Prime offers. With that being said those of you that do have them would you mind posting pictures of your setup? Trying to decide what kind of room I'll have to work with.
