Leasing with Prime Inc?

I know that the common word on this site is against leasing. However, I'm hearing mixed things from one to another about it overall. Specifically, I have a friend that leases through prime, and he claims he loves it/makes decent money. I tend to believe him. Could anyone from prime or someone who leases from prime share their knowledge on the subject?

Verification of employment?

So I applied to prime today, took that first step. However I seem to read that employment verification is a big deal. I was out if work from 2/15 to 11/15 and said so on the application. I have no criminal record, accidents, and one speeding ticket from several years ago. I'm paranoid this will hold me back. Thoughts? Experience?

Prime Inc.

So I have been researching a lot recently about trucking and getting started. A friend from high school works for Prime Inc and says he loves it, solo he makes over 1000 a week. I have read and heard great things about prime but would like to learn more from multiple viewpoints since a ton of the stuff I have read on prime is several years old. I'm 22, single, and am tired of 10$/hour job. Always been a loner and have zero attachments to home so I think this could be a great opportunity.

Is the pay truly as good as he says if you work hard?

Specifically I wonder how hard they run you? I hear a lot of talk about FMs running you illegal. How many hours/off time do prime drivers actually see during a typical week? I don't care about coming home a bit, but sleep does matter some to me haha.

Do new company drivers get new trucks?

And also, what do y'all do when not behind the wheel and sleeping while on the road?

Response would be very welcome, thanks!
