PRIME LW/FS Truck Option

Thanks you two! Interesting, well, I will say - @Daniel, if you're the guy in the middle of your avatar, I'm probably smaller xD so I guess I can't really use the 'being too big' excuse, dang. I understand the math (I've read your other post about it) but I'm not really getting into this for the money (although, it is an importance). The lifestyle is what I want and I want to be comfortable where it's possible is all. A bigger truck will do that for me.

I can do as you suggested, by letting my recruiter and on to the DM know about it. I just don't want to seem like I'm bugging or trying to ask for special treatment or anything. So, how would I go about that in the best and polite way? I have a month before I start their school, if that matters at all.

Just wondering if you aren't in it for the money, why did you pick Prime instead of a company that only has the full size trucks?

Prime is the only one that hires from my area AND allows pets :)

PRIME LW/FS Truck Option

I have been reading and researching for 6 months, that's what! xD that sucks, I'm sure we'd get along talking mad games lol!

Well alrighty, I will just ask my recruiter tomorrow by email - she's a super busy woman, but very helpful. I will just hope and pray, and if not - I think the international will be fine. I'll YouTube it right now lol.

Thank you guys, I really appreciate it. Dec 8th, I'm out to Prime and since it's getting closer, I'm all nervous but excited!

Hahah, nice! I've seen Jopa around here (I lurk a lot)

Well, I'm 25 in December. It's just me and my small terrier. I am just really excited about getting into this, I know I have the right attitude for it. It's just, you know, everyone has their own things that keep them comfortable - I can't put my finger on it, but a regular full-size just seems right for me and my dog. Not to mention, I'm a gamer myself lol (told you I lurk!) and I do want to have a TV in there and stuff in the future. Not to mention the small times I am able to draw, I love the room I'd have lol. So, no, I won't dieee if I must be in a LW, it's just something I'd really love. I'll let my recruiter know it's something that I just really look forward into having the opportunity. Just have to hope they don't tell me, "You want full-size, then lease!!" D:

PRIME LW/FS Truck Option

I know there are a couple Prime Inc people here :) ... So, I've searched the forum, but I have not found any 'recent' posting about my question: Do we get to choose to have a Full-Size truck after training, when we go solo, or are we just required to do lightweight trucks?

I read a post about 10 months ago where someone at PRIME said to "just ask for one (Full Size) at the office".

I will be with my dog (she's small) but I would still like the extra room because of that. On my orientation packet, it just says $.38 per mile + $.05 per mile for LW. That's about it.

Is this something I should ask my recruiter or just something I need to wait until I finish my training and ask at the office?

Thanks!

GPS alternatives.

Pretty good question...I actually (unfortunately) got really used to GPS. I know it's not the best tool compared to an atlas, but a Rand McNally should be accurate, no? I imagine it being more accurate than a phone (car GPS).
