Donna M.'s Bio

Happily Married will be 27 years in August. Have six grown children and 8 grandchild. Have driven a school bus for the past 4 years and really sick of it. I love big powerful trucks. Can’t wait to get out on the road. Have lived a life of doing for everyone else and fulfilling others demands and now I just want to challenge myself. Want to be appreciated when I decide to come home and not just cause I’m always here. Sounds selfish, however it’s time to be.

Not sure this will help! Equal amount of trailer on each side, you’re straight!

Merry Christmas message from dispatch

Last year I went home for Christmas, trying to decided what I wanted to do. I had decided to go with a second trainer due to the fact I lacked the confidence to go solo. Everyone here stayed on me, assuring me everyone was nervous at first. February, I went solo, boy I was a hot mess! But I made it! I’m picking up my last load before going home and my fm sends me a message where to drop my empty. I say thanks and Merry Christmas. He sends me this message!

Finally got my CDL, deciding between 3 companies all drivers seem to hate. Please help :(

U will not find a company that doesn’t have bad reviews. Figure out what u want reefer, dry, flatbed. I’m not familiar with the three you’re looking at but looks like May drives most western states and trans only hires from certain states. Really check out there training programs and pay while training. Also some companies only run teams. It’s what u are looking for!

Yea got to say I’m glad I drive for Prime. If we didn’t have tire sensor in our trucks wouldn’t of noticed a 3 lb lost. Once they found out it was leaking they said replace it. I’m sort of weird about tires. I check every trailer I pick up and check my tractor tires everyday. I don’t drive the white line, they say that’s where u pick up most garbage. And dang I get metal in the driver side.

So yesterday I had a piece of metal in my rear drive tire. Took it ta guy pulled the piece out, it was a piece of race barren from a brake. He assured me it wasn’t deep into tire. Took my ten, this morning tire sensor going off. So I mix some shampoo and water and put on hole sure enough bubble, bubble. I let RA know I’m getting ta to look at again. Tech comes out sprays water on it , goes back emails prime it isn’t leaking. I go in, ask for shop supervisor I said please come out here and I will show u this tire is leaking. Now everyone comes out to see this tire. Poured my bubbles on it bubble, bubble. Guy said yep she’s leaking! Okay, now y’all let prime know you’re wrong and I need this fixed. Few minutes Gary, in RA calls me, he like what’s going on there? Nothing, tire is leaking near sidewall so I need a new tire so I can get to my 90. Women can drive semi; however still aren’t respected in mechanics shops!

New to trucking

Wow! I know how u feel. My first night 30 miles from my pickup my navigation went off. I turned on a road with weight limit had to back out of it. Went back to a truckstop that was full pulled to side of road. It was -7 and my heat won’t work. Next morning got to shipper trailer was froze fell on handle bruised my ribs up. That night couldn’t find any where to park, stopped and asked police officer he gave me his spot! I know u are trying to call your support group and they aren’t there for u . They busy doing their jobs. I had a friend here on tt, Kearsey, and believe me I had her on speed dial. I probably would never had made it without her. There are several of us here that would be glad for u to call us, just to say I’m scared, I’m lost, I don’t know what the heck to do! Believe me, I’ve been there!

Being A Company Driver

It’s rather simple business! I drive a company truck, this truck has to make money so prime can pay the payment. This lease driver said e/she would pay payment on the one they drive. Who do u think Prime is gonna give that load to?
