Binder wise sounds good to 'me' but Prime is very picky; hoping Kearsey will show up to clarify.

Make SURE your SS card is not laminated.

How's the duffle(s) coming?

Original social card actually got a new one because mine was ratty. I have two medium duffles and a back pack. I’m driving up so I can leave what I don’t need or my trainer says in my personal truck. 7-10s of underwear and sock along with jeans tshirts and button downs for orientation. My steel toes, crocs, and sneakers

Print off your online application. You will fill out another paper application. It's a lot easier just to pull out the online application and just go through and fill out paper application that you'll fill out as part of orientation. Also prevents any issue of discrepancies in answers which will put a red flag up for prime

Tenstreet has the option to email you a copy of your app. I forget how to do after you submit it, but I get a copy of my app every time I apply for a job on there

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

Also get a check or a direct deposit form from your bank to get paid. the other option is to put your pay on your fuel card which I don't like.

Good luck and welcome to prime. The head of Pittston training helped me pass my exam 5 years ago
