My Training Diary with Central Refrigerated

Hey Dan, Hope all is well with you. I really enjoyed reading about your experiences of starting out on your trucking career. All of the ups and all of the DOWNS. It didn't seem like you held anything back. From the struggles that you had in learning to handle the truck. To the incredible mess that you had to put up with while with that trainer. And as a side note I do hope that this guy is no longer trying to fill this particular position. I really can't believe the crudeness of this trucker. But kudos to you for being the bigger person. So I do have a few questions for you though. Based on your schooling experience what should we pay really close attention to and please share the song that you made up so that I to can sing my way to acing that part of the test. Keep it save out there and please continue posting. Harry W.

Hey Daniel please give us new guys a breakdown. Such as how ur day started how long you drove when you took breaks how much sleep you got and if you fudged the logs any. But I think it is awesome and hope to do some hard driving once I get trained(safely of course) So keep it safe my young brother. Harry W.

Thanks to all my soon to be brothers

First let me say to all that sent me a response thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule. The advise was both timely and very informative. So after being turned down by a few more companies I will be starting with Con-Way hopefully this Monday. I still need to get the DOT physical done take the written exam part for the permit. So we are off and running finally. So the question is (I seem to always have questions) is does anyone know anything about this company and its school? I will try and keep up with the training and post it here so that anyone following will know what to expect. And for that matter anyone wanting to follow give me a shout and I will hook you up with my contact. So take care and keep it safe out there. Thanks, Harry W.

Help,Help Help

Ok guys here is another problem to help us wanna be truckers with. I was trying to go to work with Prime and found out today that they would not be able to help me. So I am turning to my soon to be I hope brothers in trucking. The problem I ran upon was verifying my last 3 years of employment. The long story short is.... I have been in business for myself and 3 1/2 years ago with the downturn of the economy and bad decisions on my part I had a friend that talked me into taking on a partner(some friend). Ended up being a nightmare. Again I did a stupid thing and trusted my friend and we did a verbal agreement(hand shake). I put the business into the name of the new business partners name only. (STUPID). I know this and wish I could take it back but... also l lost my home to foreclosure at this same time. I worked at the business but really didn't take any money out other than about $1000.00 per month trying to get it back on track. I have now filed suit against my formal partner but I have no way of providing 3 years of employment. I provided Prime with last 3 years of taxes which were not much. I also gave them a copy of the old business license and taxes that I had paid on behalf of the business to prove that I did own the business. But it was not enough for them. I in no way am wanting you to feel sorry for this old man(57) I knew better but did this thing anyway. I have made this bed and as uncomfortable as it is I will lay in it and do the best that I can. But I am a doer and not a complainer. So now I come to you guys and ask is there any other schools that you know of that I may contact that might take a chance on me. I am a very hard worker and have always strived to do the best at anything that I have attempted to do. I know that I will be a great trucker and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanking all your comments in advance. Harry W.

Magic Bullet Flu Remedy "Fire Water" from the TT resident witch doctor :)

Hey whats the harm in trying this and see if it will knock it out in a couple of hours rather than keeping you down for days. Old remedy like this just may work. And if not you can chalk it up as a man test (hehehehe). Well back to football and waiting to hear back from Prime about starting there on the 17th wish me luck guys.

Hazmat endorsement

Starcar my man I have done the online training with the exception of hazmat and pre-inspection. Which I hope to finish within the next few days. So my question was should I go forward with the hazmat or should I wait. And also what do I expect to happen once I get my bus ticket in hand. I have more questions but I try and figure them out as they come up. And BTW the online CDL training program has been GREAT GREAT GREAT as far as I can see. I really feel prepared and hope to be taking the test later this week.

Hazmat endorsement

Hey gang hope all are doing well. I have another question and would like some advise please. I am thinking of going with Prime Inc so I am in the process of getting my permit before going. So the question is should I take the hazmat portion of the test now or does it matter? And then if I do how long before I would get the said endorsement.

Getting my cdl permit

Those two sections - Logbook and Weight & Balance - are not part of the CDL permit test or the endorsement tests. Those are sections we've built ourselves because it's critically important information to know but most schools and companies have very little coverage of it. So you can skip those for the sake of getting your permit and endorsements, but you'll certainly want to do them as soon as possible.

We have a number of people on here who work for Prime and have gone through Prime's Company-Sponsored Training Program. Read through our information in that link if you haven't already. The others will be on here soon to give you more info about the company.

Prime as a way to start

Hello all I have a question for the fellow truckers out there. I am in the process of getting my permit to drive for Prime. I find myself at 57 having to start a brand new career. With that being said what incite can you give into starting with Prime verses another of the company's. Also I am diabetic on the pill with blood sugar about 170. And would it be better to start with their mid trucks verses the larger ones?
