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

Thank you for your quick responses. So I was wondering how I can put my father at rest about possibly having a male trainer. I believe he is worried that something might happen while on the trainers truck with me being a female. Maybe I am unaware of the possible things that could happen, and I don't really see it as a big problem, but I don't know how to tell him that it is going to be okay.

Would it be okay to bring like a suitcase with you as long as it can fit in the bunk? I just feel that I would be able to keep everything a lot more organized if I could see it laid out. I am going out with my father, who is an own op, for two weeks before my orientation week at Prime (start date is September 16), so I should be able to test out everything that I plan on taking with me. (So far) What I have packed to go with me is: - 3 pairs of jeans (one legging and two boot cut) - a pair of leggings - three t-shirts (navy, grey, blue) all have old company logo on it. - a black t-shirt - 3/4 sleeve baseball shirt (has a name of a destination on it) - Long sleeve with old company logo - belt - Oldish Tennis Shoes (black for work) - Shower shoes - boots

Still need to pack everything, but that is where i am at. Also, I don't really have that many other clothes that don't have my old companies logo on it. Hope that isn't a problem. I will probably will not buy any more clothes until I start making money.

I am headed to Prime next week in Salt Lake City, so very excited!

So I start at Prime on September 16th at the Pittston location in PA. I am most definitely excited and nervous because I am really hoping that this is going to be a good career move for myself. I come from a background of truck drivers. Dad is an owner op, brother is with schneider, my aunt is a trainer at fedex, and I have two uncles that run trucks. I am actually going out with my dad for two weeks prior to starting at Prime.

Anyway, I guess my question for the group would be, would taking a I guess medium size suitcase be okay to take onto a trainers truck? Also, would I be looked at as weird and get kicked off. I am a 5'5 female, so I don't think not having a enough room on the top bunk would be a problem.

Also, would it be okay to wear tee-shirts with the name of the company you used to work for? Not really looking into spending money a whole bunch of things.
