Starting My New Career With Prime Inc.

A dynamite intro for a training diary!

I'll be one of many following along. Don't be shy with any questions. There are quite a few Prime drivers on here actively.

DOT physical question

I would be looking for a Self Cure.

I'll get bashed by some, but I feel strongly that a lot of the newer disorders, afflictions, maladies, and syndromes of the previous 30 years are created by the medical community and the pharmaceutical industry mainly.

That’s a termination at Schneider.

Have you been diagnosed by any doctor for this anxiety?

That's a question on the medical form.

Not worse than Prime!

That's true, but I often forget about them since I am always looking forward in life not in the mirrors. smile.gif

I like those Prime trucks because they're one of the few trucks I'm able to pass. I get in the hammer lane for about 12 minutes daily.

I hope you get well and healed up again pronto!

I actually enjoy hanging out at the terminals and starting rumors.

And for a fleet of company trucks they see to have the most mismatched and random assortment of brands and colors I've ever seen.

Shoot, I'm at the first stop of a two stop load. Scheduled appointment of 0130, so I arrived at 0110.

"We don't have any forklift operators until maybe 0600."

I finally finished unloading 10 pallets at 0835.

Delays suck, but they're inevitable, especially with this ScamDemic for more than a year.

Where’s everyone at what’s you 20 how’s the weather??

Waxahachie, Texas at Owens Corning, the first stop of a two stop trip. 45 degrees and clear skies.

Only thing missing are their forklift operators. I arrived early for the scheduled unload, check in, then am told no forklift drivers, so no unloading until after 0600. That's the same time as the final stop in Tyler, Texas, 110 miles from here. Not going to make that one, nor will I make it to the next shipper for that 1365 mile trip I was planned out for. Today is shot before the first 50 miles...

Thanks Owens Corning! Luv ya this much!

Should I keep my CDL?

Go to the top, left corner on the home page and click on the three lines.

Choose the GPS Tracker.

Once the map is displayed, use two fingers to expand or zoom in on a particular pin showing any member.

It will show most street or business locations.

Instant Pot on the road

The next cooking appliance I purchase will be one. With that, and a charcoal grill this Spring, I'll have it all covered:

InstaPot, charcoal grill, George Foreman, Presto electric skillet, microwave, and a rice cooker.

You can cook rice in the InstaPot.

That's what I've heard, so that's a bonus. A swap of space, instead of an increasing number of items. Thanks TCB.

First Incident as a new Driver. Will I get fired?

What bumped the other guy's trailer, your truck or your trailer?

Just go through all the reporting processes: call the accident number, message dispatch, take lots of pictures.

You should be fine since you're a new driver. It could have been much worse. Next time, if you're where you should be, don't swerve out of the way.

Lumper fees

I agree with Errol, in that a lot more background information is needed for an answer.

Are you an owner operator, leased to a company, or an independent operator with your own authority utilizing a broker?
