Prime Inc TNT students will see increased mileage requirements in training

Also keep in mind that Primes old training program was SIX months. yep, i said that.

As both a trainee and a trainer...i would have killed someone at 6 months. lol

Well..how many miles does the team average during TNT? Is it consistent? A fellow student told me the miles can lack at times. Doesn't sound right.

Prime..Do you need your SS card or not???

Then again it might take two weeks to get it sent out... Hopefully you planned to kick it in the hotel on your own dime for awhile.

Just checked the PDF that was emailed to me upon my passing the drug test. Clearly says you need your SS card if you do not have your birth certificate. Perhaps the webpage is outdated. Sigh.....we'll see.

ALREADY BEEN ANSWERED

No it hasn't been answered, it's been dodged with a slew of excuses. You're too tired, you work, the dog ate it, mommy didn't give you a permission slip, who knows what else? I've lost track of all the excuses.

You cannot dodge this truth: You were advised months ago to get all these ducks in a row. What did you do.......

I'm still waiting......

Comprehend that!

If my recruiter was correct all my ducks ARE in a row.

Once they get a load of you, the Recruiter wont get paid........ they'll get FIRED!

They're going to love me. I worked my last shift at my previous job yesterday and people were crying.

Does anyone know when Prime recruiters get paid? When you get your own truck? Just making it to orientation?

Yeah. I'm right though. I can tell you yawned through reading class a lot.

double-quotes-end.png

These adolescent insults prove just how weak you are.

Just answer me this, and I'll leave you to your certain failure:

In light of all these questions you have, why would you not simply just bring the flippin card with you? Regardless of what the recruiter told you, we drivers told you, or what your mommy told you, why wouldn't you just bring it to be safe?

ALREADY BEEN ANSWERED This is why we have come to this point. Seems as though either the comprehension is terrible or you're just not even reading.

People in the thread are telling me I need a SS card. My recruiter specifically told me all I needed was my birth certificate.

double-quotes-end.png

That is your quote from a month ago.

If your recruiter told you don't need your SS Card, when they ask you for it, bring the recruiter in so he or she can straighten them out.

You have also asked for a recent Prime glad to tell you the real situation. Again, when they ask for your SS Card, tell them that someone on Trucking Truth told you that you don't need it. I'm sure that would be even better than a Prime recruiter straightening them out.

Your question has been answered. What you do with that answer is up to you.

No. My quesion was specifically for a recent grads experience. And yes, obviously I'm going to show the text messesages between my recruiter and I as well ask bring her in. I was just curious about what other *recent* students had to say while I'm still an route.

For a guy that calls himself "Smart"........ To quote Mary Cooper, You are "Dumber than Soup". You are obvlious to the fact that you are a clueless Know it All, that can't seem to grasp the fact that you are, and have been, making a complete FOOL of yourself on this site for a couple of months now. I can not possibly be the first person to bring this to your attention. Although, I'm sure you'll tell me I'm wrong.

I'm a pretty smart guy actually. You can't point to one foolish thing I've said. For the millionth time, a Prime professional has given me questionable information. If she has been correct the entire time, there is nothing foolish about the whole situation. I will be sure to give you an update.

Your reading comprehension is weak.

double-quotes-end.png

It's strong enough to comprehend the ramblings of a lazy, self-entitled fool who won't even make the bare minimum effort to have what he (?) may need.

double-quotes-start.png

It shouldn't be too hard to understand the confusion.

double-quotes-end.png

Nor should it be too hard to carry a little wittle tiny piece of paper with you. But what do I know? I'm only a highly successful driver who brought my SS card with me.

This is what I'm talking about. I already stated that she said things had changed just because you needed one years ago doesn't mean I'll necessarily need one in a couple days. Again...reading comprehension/judgement. Work on them both.

Bet guys like this are the reason for half the bad reviews of trucking companies on line. When he gets sent home, all we’re going to hear is how Prime lied to him.

This is getting funny. If the recruiter did indeed tell me I didnt need it which they did..would that not be a lie? Jesus

False. My recruiter has told me something seemingly not true. I didnt see any contradiction from Prime until now

We here at TT have in fact tried patiently and repeatedly to pound facts into your impenetrable skull, to no avail. You continue to ask the same questions here, then continue to dispute the answers given by the experienced members who continue to try and help.

I have neither the time nor the energy to continue with you. Buh-bye

Your reading comprehension is weak. You use to have to have one. Drivers wouldn't know as they attended orientation years ago. A RECRUITER should know better. It shouldn't be too hard to understand the confusion. There is no fact that has been presented that would clear this up. That is why I asked for a recent grads response...I've yet to get one.

You have had plenty of time to get a SS card. Why didnt you do it to be safe?

To be honest, work a lot of hours (late hours). In order to get one, you have to show up early on a weekday. If it were absolutely necessary In would have found a way. BUT WHEN A RECRUITER WHO HAS BEEN WITH PRIME FOR YEARS ASSURES ME I DON'T NEED IT..I DIDN'T GET IT

Well there are options for the right to work part. I have my birth certificate for that purpose.

Yes - and not a copy or laminated. ORIGINAL CARD.

It is kinda required by federal law to prove a right to work also.

Wow! You return again and still want to argue with those that are giving you correct information? Why not just skip orientation and save everyone a bunch of time?wtf-2.gif

Hi guys,

As I have mentioned before, my recruiter has blatantly told me that my social security card is absolutely not necessary for orientation. I'm en route now. I have just now discovered a page on Prime's site that I have never seen before. It states you need the card in order to test for your permit. Are there any recent grads who can let me know what's really up?

Prime MVR Standards

My point was Smart C, the image you are projecting here is exactly what I wrote. So please in person, dont harp on all the negativity and go with the flow. I was trying to give you insight into what others will see if you act this way in person.

I spent hours emailing and having phone conversations with perspective students before finally taking them to dinner before getting on my truck.

One perspective student who didnt know I was supposed to be taking her told me, "Once i pass my exam tomorrow and get a trainer, I am telling them we are both CDL holders and equal. I am not being told what when, and how. Just get me my 30k miles and I am done."

Would you take a person like that??? After laughing, I walked away.

Whether or not a company puts emphasis on your short comings has a lot to do with your attitude and how you accept bad news. Your reaction shows how you will react with customers. You come across in writing as a very nervous person which does not fair well in trucking.

As Splitter said, take a deep breath and calm down.

And your posts about menial minimum wage jobs was indeed insulting to anyone who needed and performed them. The way YOU wrote the comments implied they are beneath you.

Go to orinetation. Remain calm, and study the High Road and Pretrip.

good luck

Thanks

Thank you G-Town & Rainy. The more he responds the deeper the hole gets. Like I said earlier, have fun. But while you're busy pointing the finger at all of us. There's 3 fingers pointing back at you. Good luck.

No one is pointing fingers buddy.

Yeah because your responses have been so perfect. In your previous post, you wrote "were not here to understand you". You kind of have to understand the situation to answer a question. You also accused me of pointing fingers. What? No. You are very imaginative.
