Skarbrand's Bio

I love gaming, writing, drawing, ethology and astronomy.

I love driving and traveling the country, so seeing it from an office, so to speak? Yes!

I might add more to this later on, thanks for stopping by :)

Need some advice

My opinion is that you'll be okay with another company. Explain how much time you had to back. Don't give up at all man. There's many companies that would give you a chance.

No more Prime!

Yes, I left Prime yesterday. Home now! Good news is, nothing bad to say about the company. I was just lucky enough to land a local route with another company where I'm home every night. Just had to say, after these few months, Prime has been good to me. Wanted to let any newbies know. They do run you hard, they are pretty well organized and I'm happy to have gotten my CDL with them.

PRIME: Great place, just as expected!

@Rick - I was living in Jacksonville. They don't mind Orlando either.

Totally forgot about this - been out on my own for almost a month now! With doggy, gaming computer and my good ole music! Loving the road. Girl might tag along someday.

Prime is great, and I love their support.

PRIME: Great place, just as expected!

Well, after training, then passing my pretrip, backing and roadtest - I've been on TNT for a few days now.

The entire process has been great, and I've certainly been treated fairly and kindly by everyone here.

Prime has been wonderful so far and I don't regret choosing them. I'm glad they don't force us to drive in snow that's bad :) and no pet deposit wooo!

Trucking school starts in less than 8 hours...

When you burn the terms in your head, try to do so while looking at pics of what you need to remember, like actual photos of the parts. That way, you'll remember easier when you see it, in case you forgot it during the pti.

I found it easier memorizing it in sections, then moving on to the next. You may even have dreams about it. lol

People care about truckers

There are some people who do show appreciation. Like yesterday, in a small tiny town over at Oregon in the cold night. Truck stop was so small, only 8 of us fit. Heard a knock on the door and a kind couple, made all us truckers hot chocolate and gave us big stockings. Inside were homemade cookies, toothbrush and paste, cleaning supplies, candy, breathmints, tissues and canned food. I'll never forget that :)

PRIME: Great place, just as expected!

So, it's been a while! Kind of jumping to the next chapter lol, but I'm on my 3rd day out with my trainer! I've been doing a lot of driving and finally got a good alley docking at the place we're at.

Anyway, trainer is a super cool guy. He has 9 years on the road and we get along great. He's training me pretty well! Being a Floridian, I've never driven in snow or mountains (or 20 degree weather), although I just did Parlay in Summit near Park City coming to Salt Lake today. Little nervous but did perfect down those grades with good instruction :)

Now we're at our receiver, just finished unloading and waiting to hear back from Prime.

So far the company has been great! Good teaching and people. Love the feel of the terminal and help you get around the entire process. Don't really have anything bad to say about the company. Recommended for sure!
