Turtle, I had no idea it would cost more the first year (and significantly more at that!) Now I KNOW I'm being spoiled by working in healthcare. Oh well, the extra cost for insurance will be WELL worth getting OUT of healthcare! smile.gif

Heres a newsflash for insurance at Prime is cheaper then what i had as a federal employee at the USPS

That is surprising! Hope they at least paid you really well to offset? But I'm guess not??

Uh no. i clear more here in 1 week than at the USPS in 2. however i think NJ taxes has a lot to do with that

there are some companies like Old Dominion that pay your whole premium, but those companies are usually harder to get into, dont train and are selective. Many positions are local with mandatory 14 hr days. it would feel too much like a real job to me. lol


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Lee and Aubrey,sorry I haven't posted back. Lee, Sara was my recruiter as well and stayed in constant communication. Aubrey,I heard rumors that the pay wasn't told correctly and that was always back of my mind. Number 1 they should damn sure be upfront about how that works before getting people thousand miles from home. So the rumors on that weren't rumors,as you verified that as well. Not saying by any means they are a bad company, but saying in a week when it is 3 weeks is not exactly telling the truth now is it? This is why this forum is here for all of us to communicate and I enjoy it when I can get on here. None of us rookies know where we will end up,and we all have questions about various things. We just have to learn and move forward. Best of luck to you both.

I have a question cause i want to clarify the pay.

Are you saying that you do not start employment/get paid from day 1..or are you saying they get paid biweekly, and like any business that does, has the 2 weeks of pay, then holds the week. If this is the case, then you are getting paid from the beginning. If you are saying you are not entitled to be paid for X number of days then that is a different story.

when is pay day and how often is a normal question to be asked. some places get paid weekly some biweekly some monthly...not just in trucking.

so i am curious what exactly is the situation.
