Prime TNT

Update -

Routed back last night stayed in the hotel. New trainer assigned and picking me up Sunday or Monday. Fleet manager apologized to me for my experience, which speaks volume since as a trainee it benefits all involved that everything goes as smooth as possible.

Just got home as I live 2 hours away. I actually got to talk to the new trainer for a bit to see if we mesh, which was a welcome relief. We hit it off and will sit for lunch on pickup day to meet and get to know each other.

I will touch base with Richard, no reason for anyone else to deal with this trainer at least not until he squares away his truck.

Iron9s, if you're still at Pittston, find and speak with Richard Brock. He runs the training program there, and he would be very interested in seeing those pictures.

We are heading on 78 west stuck at an accident now, Could I just have him drop me off at the Pittston Terminal. I will even just get an Uber to get out of here. Those pictures don’t even do it justice.

Here are some screen grabs to emphasize how disgusting it is in here.

Prime TNT

Hey all, I am about a month into TNT at Prime. So far things have been great. I came in as a C seat since I had my CDL and went right out in the flatbed with a trainer. Things were going great but my bionic arm that was rebuilt while I was in the Army just wasn’t as good as the 6 million dollar man and caused too many issues. The trainer was phenomenal and I learned so much in the month we were together.

I decided to switch to tanker as I found it a lot more interesting than reefer, so a quick call and the following week I was setup with a new trainer. Once this trainer showed up to pick me up I had a guy feeling that something was off. First off I don’t smoke but he does, second his truck is a disaster, food empty bottles, dirty laundry eveywhere. The truck is rancid. To add to this, his pants are always falling off his ass, not just crack, but while ass and then he sits on the seats. While I was driving and he somehow came through from the sleeper to the passenger seat it was all ass in my face, bare ass. I’m grossed out, everything is covered is something sticky.

For you Prime people, is this ground that I can call my fleet manager to get a new trainer?
