Thanks for the bump haha! I got lost in the topics. But thanks Patrick, you were one of the reasons I decided to go with HO Wolding.

And now that you’ve mentioned the video....I must watch. Haha!

Thanks Rob! I’m sure I’ll have time at the beginning to do a diary. It sounds like a great program.

Hi All,

About a year ago I began my journey in the professional driving career with Prime. About two weeks in it derailed when my grandma fell ill and I could no longer commit. I left Prime. While I say it was one of the biggest mistakes I’ve ever made, they were amazing in getting me home. Finally a little under a year later I’m back on track, clean slate and ready for the adventure. Unfortunately while speaking to Prime I am unable to come back through their program because of being an Illinois resident. I am not sure if something changed in the past year. While it’s not possible immediately I still look forward to working with them in the next few years.

Over the past few weeks I’ve worked with the 160 Driving Academy in Champaign, Illinois on getting scheduled to a class. I had a few companies to chose from to apply for sponsorship Swift, Pam Transport, Schneider, and HO Wolding. I was approved by Swift as well as HO Wolding. I did decide to go with HO Wolding due to several reasons including their training and what type of runs they have. I still didn’t mind going with Swift as I felt they have so much to offfer. I’m extremely happy with the choice that I made though. I have my DOT scheduled for today and I start class on Monday April 23. I just wanted to update y’all on my journey. Everyone on this forum provides such great advice and that’s why I continue to want this career (among other reasons to 🙂). I may start a diary on the school and training journey, we’ll just have to see.

I’m glad to be back on the saddle and furthering in this adventure.

Brandon

Hi all! My names Brandon. I have been lurking the forums for the past few months hidden in the background. I've had the trucking path on my mind for over a year now. I ended up narrowing it down to a few choices for company sponsored trainings. But honestly Prime won me over, all because of Rainy and a couple others. I am currently a 911 Dispatcher in Central Illinois. And while I love my job, I hate sitting behind a desk. I recently processed my application with Prime Inc and will be starting the program April 3rd. I'm extremely nervous! I just want to say thanks to all on TT, you really provided someone with not a clue about this industry to some foundation of what it takes. I hope to see y'all on the road eventually!
