I started with Prime. Did my training there.

Since I have left I have worked for Barr-Nunn, JB Hunt, Carolina National.

Tomorrow I start my return back to Prime.

I also started my career with Prime. Been with them since 1/3/15. I can't say enough good things about them, truly a first rate experience so far. No company is perfect but they really treat you respect and dignity. Great open door policy heck the owner even gave us his cell phone # at last weeks safety meeting.

Swift is a regular "starter" company. In my training and my first year, I have no complaints.

Wow ODFL is still around? Last I saw there equipment was run down and looked like they were going the way of CF. Basically meaning, union putting them out of business..... Don't know if they're union, but always suspected they were

You don't think maybe the multi-million dollar yearly salaries the top executives enjoyed maybe cut into profits a little bit?

I live near Memphis. I often drive by a big OD terminal. Lots of trucks in the yard, plenty of double pups going in and out.

And u just dissed 6 string rhythm!

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I started with Prime Inc. April 2014, went through their training program and am still turning miles for them..! I've been both Company Driver and Lease Operator and either way I like the Company and will stay until I go somewhere else...:) Getting the 1st year safely completed was my goal and now it's about making money..Prime offers everything a new driver needs to succeed.
