Welcome! Autos is wave of the future and as new driver the companies that will hire you and you will work for over the next 1-2 years will have you in an auto. You can always go back and “upgrade” to a manual.

Don’t get sucked into “real truckers drive a stick” times are changing rapidly…and truckers are headed to autos and electric logs - ❤️🙏🏼🤣

A trucker friend of mine says not to get an automatic restriction, that even though most companies are going with automatics, that it will really **** me later on, having to go back through training to get manual training without restrictions. (He makes around 120k-160k a year and gets a ton of home time, some company out of Portland, wants to get me in there someday)

Do any of these 3 companies let you train and test out on a manual? Are there any other comparable companies I should look into? Thanks again guys :)

Hi Melissa Welcome...

Don't know about Prime but they use Freightliner trucks, CFI has almost all Kenworth trucks. The Freightliner is wider inside and makes a nice living area.

Steppenwolf

Prime uses Freightliner, Peterbilt, International with some Volvo sprinkled in.
