Prime Not Hiring Florida

double-quotes-start.png

What tends to fuel those decisions?

double-quotes-end.png

Typically loads coming out of FL don't pay well. Its not uncommon for trucks to LOSE money coming out so they can get to a better freight lane. Lots of loads going in but they don't produce much down there. Prime has alot of floral loads out of Miami but those seem to be mainly team trucks getting those. Many carriers don't hire south of I-10, and it becomes even more drastic south of I-4.

Does that blow anyone elses mind with all ports florida has the pay is crap? I live in Florida. The only 2 things I love in Florida are 9 and 11 everything else about that state sucks. With that being said i would rather get a load to or from Florida than CA NY NJ NH Connecticut ME. Im glad i do reefer its easy to pick up oj loads.

Just to make Packrat cringe.

G i didnt post that to ruffle your feathers bro. Was the frieghtshaker comment or the swifty swift comment that got you so huffed and puffed. Opinions are like boogers, everyone has and i have every right to express that opinion. I tried daycab with swift and all there trucks at my terminal were cheap broken down 2018 shakers, volvos, and intertrashonal sleepers. I chose the intertrashonals because they were the best of the worst

Looking for the best hotspot, Wi-Fi or hardwire device for laptop gaming

LOL And WHO has time for gaming? "Maybe" on a 34 reset, otherwise, I don't see much time for it. Hell, I took my laptop with me OTR, and maybe, got it out once a week or longer. Too much time to concentrate on doing the job well, and safely. Used my Metro PCS hot spot for laptop use, and there was states I couldn't even get hotspot, Wyoming practically the whole state, western half of Nebraska etc, etc lol

I woulf if i did. i run at midnight shut down morning or early afternoon. When i shutdown i cant just go back to the sleeper and crash i have to wind down. You can make time for down time during your 10 it doesnt be pull the breaks post trip sleep. Hell you could play while doing a live load.

Freightshakers are still the worst trucks today. When driving day crap for swifty swift, if drove a frieghtshaker it hurt my back and butt when i sat down for a day. Im guessing the ceo of frieghtshaker is like lets make driving this truck like a torture chamber and sell to the mega carriers.

Just got fired not even 3 months in

"Assuming your in an automatic, starting out at 45, with your Jake on, it's not possible. If you're 3 months in. That means you went down hills in training and learned how to use your gears and Jake. I'm dumbfounded on how that happens?"

Some of the mega carriers have dedicated Florida routes for training. Most of Florida is flat. 45 with jakes on getting up to 79 is possible in some trucks when your on cruise. And the automatics you have to tap the breaks to engage the jake while im cruise. that being said if you go from 45 to 89 and now its 79 with jakes on either you werent tapping the break to engage the Jakes, you had it on the wrong level or you need to get the Jake break looked at.

To answer your question yes a company will hire you. you will probably have to go out with a trainer.

Why no restrooms in semi-truck sleeper cabs?

Are looking to drive as career or use it as a Vacation. Now i can understand not choosing a company b/c it uses that optimized idle ds rather than APUs or not ever allowing pc. Holy crap man this is the 3rd most dangerous job. The trucks have come along way. My pawpaw had get a hotel room every night because his company wanted him to use a board to sleep on in the single cab because they didn't have sleepers but he was 6ft 4.

I have a fridge APU and a 1500 watt inverted that the company pits in the truck so i can cook watch tv and play super Nintendo. I feel blessed and spoiled at the same time. You might want to think and pray about why you want to get into this lifestyle.

So i went back to freymiller last week. One of the drivers in class with me was planning on teaming with his wife after she got off her trainers truck. Well his drug did not come in when the rest of ours did. He admitted he took cbd for a tooth ache. Found out to he failed the oral drug test. This is going to be on his clearing house for a good while.

New upcoming drivers. Your opinion of cbds does not matter in the eyes of fmsca. If they say no dont do it
