Janet N.'s Bio

I passed my CDL Permit and Tank Endorsement tests yesterday, so I am not the proud owner of the a CDL Permit. I waiting on my approval with Prime to book my airline ticket to Salt Lake City. I love traveling and I have been to all 50 states. I spent many miles in my 2018 GT Mustang last year traveling to a lot of states. I love driving my Mustang but it does not pay my employment, so I am looking to start a career in OTR. My life has opened up to allow me do this now that my children are both in college.

So I have packed all my clothing, my recruiter told me to pack for three weeks, since I would not be home for approximately 7 or more weeks. I didn't bring any business attire, because I figure this is the trucking world. Was I wrong, should I bring business attire? I packed a bunch of new items, so my clothes will all look nice, as long as when I unroll them from the ziploc bags they are not too bad in wrinkles. Also they put us up in a hotel nearby, so I have a place to stay already. I have bought some of the stuff already to be ready to drive, so I am ready to get on the plane in two days!

I was in the salt. Lake terminal last week. Very nice people there. The terminal is under a lot construction. It’s the smallest one we have about 1/3 the size of Springfield where I was trained. Not sure about the housing for students, can’t help u there. As for clothing remember this is a week long interview dress appropriately. Once on the road most shippers require pants and closed toe shoes. No steel toe required. I’m not saying u can’t wear shorts however we work in a mans world and “most of us” don’t want the added attention. Bring all your wires the trucks have plenty of plug-ins. Don’t forget your sun glasses and it may be a while before u get home so think about the changing weather. I didn’t bring bedding with me just bought it before I went out on tnt.

Just got my CDL Permit here in Arizona, heading for Prime Training Saturday, August 24 in Salt Lake City

I have my CDL Permit already, got it a week ago here in Arizona, So I can work on the CBT's and other stuff!

Study High Road Training program before you arrive. Stay up late Monday and knock out most CBT's take permit Tuesday and finish CBT'S. I was done by 1pm Tuesday and only had morning roll call and Sim labs in afternoon or evening rest of week. Had a lot of free time for laundry studying pre trip and lounging while the rest of class were stressed. Only a third of class made it dont be one of them. I had time to meet trainer Thursday and rolled out Friday. Work hard then chill prime is pretty chill if you do what you need to and are not late.

So I have begun the process of packing. I have two girlfriends that do Flatbed for a living. They suggested I bring about three weeks of clothing, putting everything in gallon or 2.5 gallon bags and squishing the air out of them. I won't buy the boots, don't have the money anyway. I will bring two pairs of tennis shoes instead. For the Instruction training after the first initial week, is it go go go, or do we have time to do wash in between those three weeks of Instruction training before our CDL driving test?

I have been on this site for about two weeks reading everything I could learn about Prime and truck driving. I had my Medical DOT done yesterday and then I went directly to MVD in Mesa, Arizona to take my 4 tests for my CDL Permit. I passed and I am so very excited. I found one packing list on this site but it pertains to a guy, I am just curious about items for the female driver? Am I able to wear shorts since I live in Arizona it is bloody hot in the summer and I hardly wear jeans. I have some stretchy jeans and other pants, but just need a list. I did read, which makes complete sense, to pack all dark clothing so I can do one load for clothing. I looked at Greyhound and decided I didn't want stuck on a running late bus so I booked an airline ticket. I have traveled all over the US and other countries, so I know about packing light. I do have questions about the actual trainers trucks, do they have plug ins for laptop computers? USB for Cell phone? Refrigerators or ice chest area? What items do you need for training right away? Steel toed boots, or can you wear tennis shoes, gloves, road map, etc? I fly out to Salt Lake City on Saturday, August 24.

Starting with Wilson Logistics

I have just started reading today. I joined a couple of days ago. I was all set to go to Roehl but they didn't like my resume. So I have been researching between Prime and Wil- Trans. Both companies seem to have a great following and I appreciate your honesty in this so far! Thank you!
