Off to PrimeSpringfield 6/3

"Additionally, any current trainee will be paid $300 per week extra for any miles over the 30k threshold."

So from $700 to $1000 after 30k? Geez... I should start a week earlier.

I have one huge decision to make: reefer, tanker or flatbed? No, scratch flatbed. I have nothing to prove... On that note I hear that tanker is much less stressful, but also gets less miles. And reefer... Well, any thoughts?

Off to PrimeSpringfield 6/3

So I have been inching my way toward driving a truck for a year now since my bestie made the jump. Because of that I have her experiences to encourage and warn me and I am really grateful for that.

I start in the first class as Prime changes her training program - the only real change being 50k on the road with a trainer as opposed to 30k before. But with the extra 20k miles comes a little bump from $700 to $800 a week gauranteed as long as I am available for dispatch. This includes waiting for a truck.

My recruiter said there was a lot of mixed responses to this but I am happy for the extra training. I have dipped my toes in the manual but it's time to dive in. I even got a little nudge note from Brett (thanks, I appreciate it!)

Wish me luck!
