Picking trucking company?

So I made the decision to begin my trucking journey quicker ... i was going to start in March but what better time than to start in the middle of winter to get pointers and advice by a trainer.

Anyways, can a newbie company driver ask for a kind of truck he wants. I am dedicated to driving for prime lightweight truck for reefer.I will catch flack for this maybe but I would like a automatic if that's even an option. Can you ask for this before your hired or are you handed the keys and basically said "here ya go! Time to go!" And it's a random truck

Using 401 (k) for school?

I may have a 401 (k) from an old job that I have not used or even looked into. Currently right now I would love to tap into it to pay for a CDL school, since my current job I am not making enough to even pay into retirement I understand it's very dumb to do, yet I am not even 30 yet and I think if I did get hired with my CDL I could pay back into quickly.

Has anyone ever pulled from there 401 (k) for "hardship"? It says I can use it for tuition at a 30% cost basically

What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

I have been all over. Been a butcher, dept. manager at Wal-mart, managed a firework store, drove a shuttle truck for UPS, and lately I have been a CNA for the past few years. Economy in this town in Wyoming is in the crapper since Manny of our coal and oil sites have shut down. So just waiting for tax season so the gf can pay off the van so I can hit the road and not leave her with 100% of the bills for the first 3 months. I am going to join Prime Inc, since they have a training facility in Salt Lake City, which is very close to home for me, and the training I hear is excellent so I won't be out of $5,000 for school and I have to get my 1 year in anyways for expierence to move on, so why not just work for the company for a year, and leave on good terms.

I want trucking not technically OTR to be my career, nothing has stuck with me in my work life, driving for UPS was amazingly fun and I remember going on runs with my dad as a boy to get cement for his belly dump and it was a lot of fun to be with him doing that. I grew up around trucking so it is nothing new to me...
