Prime Macro 27 City Codes?

Hmmm..? I don't remember using city codes while at Prime. For what reason do you need city codes? Is it bc you want to enter the code into your QC's navigation?

Why I quit Prime's TNT Program

Ok. I see he was completely quoting another post. It was hard to tell what was a quote and what was his comment as he mixed his comments into the quotes.

Yep. Hard to read between the quotes sometimes.

Why I quit Prime's TNT Program

Hey Chief, the original poster was training as a "unicorn".

Santoy, I would follow Karsey's advice:

You can talk to your fleet manager or Chris Martin who is in charge of TNT training.

Hit me up at truckingalongfun@gmail.com

The driving only at night part is not relevant. But the fact that you are not allowed to back or do a thorough pre trip are major issues. Prime does not want an undertrained, potentially dangerous driver on the road in one there trucks. Once you explain the situation (focusing on the safety issues) Prime should be willing to pair you with a more competent trainer.

If you are concerned about being used by your trainer to make money, try asking to train with a company driver if that is an option.

Really slow right now

On the first of this year my company switched all regional drivers to CPM (they did let us know several weeks in advance). I was getting a nice flat rate per day prior to the switch and loving it.

CPM is not so good. My rate is .70CPM which is great, but the total miles are crappy. I'm making close to $500 less PER WEEK since the new year started.

I drove 568 miles yesterday and shut down at 1400. I'm still waiting on my next load assignment 17 hours later and judging by recent history chances are it will be a short one. Hopefully things pick up...for all of us.

One Million Safe Miles Reached!!!

Congratulations, Kearsey! It would be cool to see in the coming years if any drivers from your training "family tree" also hit that 1 million miles mark.

Picking your Team driver for brand new cdl?

Hi, Jim. Unless I'm mistaken, it should be much easier to get hired as a team than it would be as a solo driver.

Most companies try hard to get their drivers to team up. When I was with both US Xpress and Prime fleetwide messages would be sent fairly frequently, asking for people willing to be team drivers.

If I was you, I'd look around for maybe some companies offering sign on bonuses or other benefits for hiring team drivers. Or maybe your current company will offer an incentive for a referral bonus if you can drive as a team there.

Often team drivers earn PTO more quickly than solo drivers.

When I was with Prime, a new driver had to go through TNT training before teaming with another driver. However the new driver could do part of their TNT phase with a Prime trainer and then finish TNT as a team driver with another experienced driver. For example, the new driver would do 30,000 miles with a trainer, then do the other 20,000 with the person they planned on teaming with. Maybe Kearsey can verify if that is Still the case.

What's my chance of getting a local driving job?

And sometimes this must be said...

Be honest. Don't try to hide anything. You will have zero chance of being hired if they find something you failed to disclose. Some job applications ask you to list moving violations within the past 3 years. Actually, most that I've come across ask for that.

It doesn't necessarily mean they won't hire you. They just want to know.

Good luck! Keep us posted and/or check in with any other questions you may have.

Thanks for sharing your tips for a good night of sleep.

For the white noise, where did you get the download? I've seen ads for these types of things, and the one time I decided to try and download it it came with a fee. Do you know of any free ones?

I'm interested in seeing how effective it is at canceling noise, but it's not something I need so badly as to pay for.
