I am headed to orientation on Oct. 14th for Prime inc. in Pittston, PA. From what I was told I’ll be in the flatbed division which I chose. Just took my pre-screened drug test today, I have to go and get my long form physical from the place I received it at. I upgraded my permit to Class A with tanker. Aced all my exams because of the High Road Training guide. (Thank you to the people who put it together!) I’ve been all over the different threads on this site(just reading) I hope to share some of my experiences going through the Pittston school. The reason I picked flatbed is it’s more “demanding” and will give different tasks each load. Physically that is. Not that any other division isn’t demanding in some way or another. Any advice would be greatly appreciated or if you wanna just chop it up that’s cool as well..

Good luck Matthew. Prepare for a whirlwind flurry of activity followed by a lot of "hurry up and wait". Orientation week will run you through a range of emotions. Nothing you can't handle though.

Welcome to the forum, welcome to Prime, and welcome to flatbedding! You're in for a good time!

Oh I’m sure it will be. But that’s life tho, nothing I haven’t done before lol. I actually read your diary a few weeks back and that’s what helped me make my decision. Plus I’m an active person by nature, so gotta have something intriguing.

Not when you're parked, and the breeze is a tailwind.
