What's crazy is that by total coincidence we both had the same negative trainer. And good news is that driver is no longer permitted to train at prime.

My question would be. Why would an A HOLE like that be allowed to DRIVE fo Prime?????

There are many azzhats driving for many companies. If a requirement was no azzhats allowed, there really WOULD be a driver shortage.

Congrats. That's a spiffy truck. I love Prime's equipment. Did you request the lightweight or was it assigned to you? Did they give you a choice?

She was able to mostly stay under the he radar because it seemed like she treated each trainee a little worse each time. Plus she committed several safety and DOT violations with me that I guess that was the last straw. Either way, I managed to upgrade. Hopefully I won't screw up too much on my own. Hahahahahahahaha

I had originally requested a lightweight, but after two days of sitting they asked if I wouldn't mind a condo. I said yes, but then they called this morning and asked if I wouldn't mind a lightweight, so it really worked out.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Excellent! Congratulations! I'll probably have to come clean about my training escapades and the two wack Jobs I wound up with at Swift. No offense to Swift in general. But I was starting to think all of the trainer's here were pretty much all sociopathic nut jobs. LOL

I basically just bit the bullet and made it happen.

Again, Congratulations!

Congrats on upgrading to solo Miss Miyoshi, good job! What made you want a lightweight rather than a condo? I'm starting to consider trying out for Prime, but one thing that gives me pause is their reported preference for assigning lightweights where possible to all but flatbed drivers. Your truck looks absolutely gorgeous, but it looks like you have next to NO storage space! I have trouble imagining living on the road for weeks at a time with even less space than a regular sleeper. The CPM is fantastic, but I'd need somewhere to stuff my clothes and food, too! What made you make that choice?

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.
