Let's see of this forum is as friendly as it says!!

I admit..i deleted his post last night as he went on a blaming and accusatory rant. He came to a trucker forum to do nothing but complain about us.

Dude, you have no idea how hard our job is...and to do it in the legal time allowed... and with morons on the road.

You call yourself a victim, but you have been aggressive here and could possibly have been on the road. We do not know.

What did you want? Yes, the trucker was wrong. You probably were as well. Reading your deacription is hard... cause he was going 35mph pushing you off the road... then you were going 3mph tp get back on..

We dont get paid for this. We are working 14 hour days dodging aggressive cars who dont want us on the road.and now you come here. To aggravate us more.

Sorry... i do not need to be friendly to a guy who is belittling and demeaning. Who obviously hates truckers. Go play with your dash cam and call the cops. Stay safe and try not to kill anyone next time you do not slow down to allow someone else in.

It can be done... i do it every day... allow others in front. You wouldnt have been run off the road if you were driving defensively.

Looking for paid CDL training in AZ

Hi. Truth is.. any company is going to do well for any woman who wants to work, learn, and be safe.

I have been at Prime for 9 years. We have 1600 women drivers out of 9,000. We have annual awards ceremonies for women, facebook support groups, and even a female driver liaison to help.with issues.

Please be aware... almost all training companines are over the road. If you want a local job, trying Fedex dock to driver typw of program may be better.

At Prime, i go to AZ all the time.... i have a youtube channel with a female playlist about being a female driver at Prime.. i also have training playlists with my female students. Check them out!

You are assuming it wasnt a new driver. Many times new drivers get nervous in those areas and are still learning to use their mirrors properly. They may not have seen you...

Making that scenario worst ... it is possible there was a car on his right that was pushing him into the left. You may not have seen it. Not saying he was correct... saying it is possible he didnt see you. He could have been so focused on that side that he forgot about you.

TNT Training Question and a Few Others

It turned out that the customer assigned 2 loads to the same number. So they confused my load to GA with one to TX.

But i am rolling now.

How is Schneider Trucking

I agree. I was going to say something as well. And schneider pays less than Prime.

My guess is that they are watching a bunch of Youtube where lease ops.are bashing Prime so they are second guessing.

I have been outspoken against leasing for years. I get it. NaeNae was company first and now lease and is happy and successful. But i truly believe going lease right away is wrong. Too much can happen woth a new person.

I said in the other post... prime is the only company that allows 7 days to walk away. He waited longer than that... so he is on the hook for $4500ish or whatever the contract is now. Plus, another company may not take him with that contract in effect.

And as Laura pointed out... the wife who is not a driver is posting based on googled info instead of asking recruiters or qualified people. Contact me through email or.my youtune channel and i can put you in contact with the people in management who can address concerns. But i have to know the real info.

30cpm could be training pay???

Prime used to do 16cpm training pay.. now it's a weird formula.

TNT Training Question and a Few Others

Yesterday I got to a customer a couple hours early with 40 min left on clock, they were closed. No biggie. An hour later, a security guard came to me.and said the company moved the week before.

The new location was 20 miles away... during rush hour work traffic.. and because my clock got screwed up, i lost a 1500 mile load on this check.

Today i get to shipper an2 hrs early, with a 1500 mile load... and they are telling me the load isn't going where i was told. They wont tell.me where and Prime cannot get answers from the broker.

So it could be going 300 miles to TX or 1400 to Atlanta.. and no one kmows. Been here waiting for an hour.

This is trucking.

Can One Quit Prime Training Before Obtaining a License?

Prime is a family oriented company that takes things on a case by case basis. Normally you have 7 days to cancel the contract. He is beyond that now. So he is responsible for the full contract amount.

Explain to Steve Larsen or Stan Kasterke of the training dept the situation and that he intends on returning. Give a specific date. Life happens. If he truly intends on quitting, then be up front about that as well. Only Stan Kasterke would be able to make a determination of how to handle this.

Now if he has no intention of returning.. that is a different issue. People often use the "family emergency" excuse to leave then try to go to another company for training. The other company will find out and many will reject you for failure to complete a prior program. There may even be a non compete clause in the contract now. Read the contract
