Thank you all for your advice and now I feel more comfortable about the idea of starting on an automatic.

Hi all, Thanks for all your help and I decided to go with Prime. Since I am from north east they told me to go to Pittsburg, PA for training. That is something new for me since no one ever mentioned this anywhere. But I am excited at the same time. I really wanted to drive manual and all my life I drove only stick shift cars and l like the feeling of total control of a vehicle. But my recruiter told me that they are changing to automatic and it is highly doubtful that I will get a manual. So now I have to train my mind to enjoy automatic lol. But my biggest worry is about my future. How about other trucking companies, what if after 2 years or so I want to get into another company and they don't want someone without any manual experience. Or shouldI I try finding some other company which trains in manual or go to a driving school and learn manual. I am upset because I am going to dedicate a year for a company but they won't teach you manual and I feel that I am going to learn only half of driving.


What day are you scheduled to go? I'm heading over Febuary 4th myself.

I am scheduled for feb 11th.
