TRUTH about CDL Schools

Ticket and no employment for 2+ years.

Never ever turn in that CDL. You would then have to do entire exams over if u change ur mind later.

The unemployment could be an issue. Any unemployment, not just trucking. Apply everywhere... fight the ticket.

Dont go to recruiters with "the sign i didnt see conspured with the cop i didnt see".

You are a CDL holder. It is your job to see the sign. Protect your CDL at any and all costs. It could make you hundreds of thoudands of dollars someday.

Paid CDL training for people living in California?

This thread is 5 years old. Prime has been hiring company drivers only from Cali, and the student goes to Salt Lake City for orientation.

You said they still arent hiring from Cali.. who tols you that? I could ask recruiting this week.

Inward Facing Cameras & AI

To Bruce....

He was fired because he is always like that. I am shocked he wasn't fired before. He is still complaining about things from over a year ago. Been at like 4 or 5 companies in 4 years i think.

Inward Facing Cameras & AI

I didn't see any recent posts. Does your company have inward facing cameras? With or without AI?

Prime announced they are installing inward and outward cameras with AI. These are supposed to track our hand movements, eyes, seat belts with AI. The outward will pick up U Turns, stop signs and following distance.

Some think they want to have "gotcha" moments to fire us.

I am finding that many other companies already have these cameras. What is your experience?

Power only pros and cons

I never thought about the limits on cargo. You are probably right. I know fleets with 12+ trucks can buy into a Prime Insurance for a much cheaper rate than they would get at Progressive. At least the quotes I have seen have been better. Also, when you have that many trucks, they are getting a higher % of the load.

I am driving for a mini fleet within Prime that is currently looking into making the switch. Many of my friends have taken their trucks that way.

Now that Prime is installing inward facing cameras, more are researching it.

What i don't like is that many of these "business owners" don't know anything about HR, labor laws, or benefits. That is why it is easier for a truck owner to just lease the truck out to a 1099 for power only.

They currently have company drivers on trucks inside of prime, with benefits from Prime. Taking those same company drivers to the power only will be interesting. The company drivers will expect and demand all benefits. To keep 10+ trucks filled, they need to learn those HR needs quickly. Having those trucks sit empty, and paying the costs to advertise them as 1099 could be much worse.

Power only pros and cons

We have power only small fleets running on the logistics side of Prime. Some lease the trucks from the owners... some are indeed company drivers on W2s.

They have a Prime fleet manager, their own authority, insurance, etc. prime allows them the fuel discounts, fuel surcharge, use of our terminals... but they cannot run high value loads (and i THINK no hazmat, not sure). The loads are exactly the same otherwise.
