Choose wisely what pump you pick otherwise you will get blocked in

The TA off of I95 Exit 41 in Jessup, MD has a pretty messed up entry and exit for fuel.

Will my driving record keep me from joining Prime?

Everything looks fine but that suspension might not be good... Just make sure you mark EVERYTHING down on your application and again when you go to orientation. Honesty is a must! Good luck!

Is it safe to use microwave?

No need to worry now. Got my APU fixed. Turns out the alternator was going and my inverter was dead... I discovered the dead inverter when plugging in my phone

I've been having problems with my APU. If I have the truck idling is it safe to use the microwave without anything blowing up as in a fuse or my inverter?

Nasty shower

I'm down in Laredo, TX waiting for my load to come in from Mexico. Went inside because I heard they have free showers.... I can see why it's free.... Being so close to the Mexico border I kept my eyes and mouth shut lol. Not sure if I feel cleaner or dirtier now...

Thank you !

I just wanted to reach out to everyone on here that helped me achieve my goal today and I earned my Class A CDL. I did everything correctly in practice but sadly I didn't pass on my first try yesterday because I got hit hard with a horrible cold or sinus infection. So today I came back and learned from my mistakes. Redeemed my self big today. Yesterday i missed my sight side parallel park but today I aced my backing skills with 0 points. And yes my final manoeuvre today was again my sight side parallel park.

I recently turned 21 in November and for the past 2 years I have visited this site to study for pre trip and read all of your stories and tips. This site has been a HUGE help in helping me reach my dream. Again thank you all very much!

How to not stall when starting from a stop...

Thank you everyone. I'm in primes training program and basically learning how to drive while going over the road. At the terminal the instructors told us to start in 4th... when I met my trainer and left to go over the road he told me start in 3rd. But maybe trying 2nd might help ?

How to not stall when starting from a stop...

If I'm on flat ground and start from a stop I don't stall but when I'm on an incline I'm afraid I'll roll back which in return I hold the brake to long and stall... what's the best way to get past this and not stall?

Question for anyone from Prime....

Only reason why I ask is because I'm worried about my car payment.

My start date for prime is December 27. Assuming I pass everything when should I expect to receive my first paycheck?

Does Prime or the DOT do a Hair Follicle Drug test ?

The only reason why I ask is because I'm scheduled to start with Prime on December 27 and I'm not sure if my hair will be long enough or not.
