401k My contribution: $780

401k prime match: $156

Good for you for not leaving free money on the table!

Is their 401k traditional only or is there a Roth option? What investment options are there?

Finance is not my thing so maybe someone else can answer. Its traditional I guess in that its quite like the TSP plan I had at the USPS as a federal.employee. there are.more options to choose from than I had there.

They use Fidelity Investments. I think there were about six different funds to invest in ...including small business, common stock and foreign funds. You can change % withdrawn every quarter.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

You are taking full advantage of the company matching contribution. That makes you a financial genius. With the amounts of your contribution and match you're making 20% immediately before any market gains. Good job!

Sorry to go off topic but Rainy, how did you get a condo as solo driver? The recruiter told me solo drivers only get lightweight trucks now. If that's not the case maybe I should call them back

One of the other Prime drivers on the forum, "Turtle" was just issued a 2017 Cascadia Condo as his first truck.

They lie. Lol or just don't know.

You can request a condo once you go solo. You need "approval" which consists of telling a supervisor "I'd like a condo". I got approved.

Others have stated things like " I plan on training later...I want to bring a passenger from time to time....my wife will be coming with me" one guy told them he was clausterphibic in the LW.

People with pets usually get condos cause there is no room for pet food, kitty litter..etc.
