I was wondering if you guys had any insight to this or not. I keep seeing a job posting out here in Illinois from Prime that just sounds off to me.

I’ll post a link to it, but the two things about the ad that make me question the who thing are the following. Says the pay is 75k for a new driver, and 100k a year for experienced drivers. Although it’s not saying exactly how obtain that kind of money. Second is it says 4 days on 4 days off. The title of the position is pre loader/ local driver. Doesn’t say much either about the pre loader part other than may be required to was tankers. You guys happen to know anything more about this?

On Prime's app it states it is at our new Minooka Il terminal. Looks like it is shuttling empty trailers to local customers and picking up loads to have at the terminal ready for OTR drivers to pick up. It's mostly running I-55. Probably running claims to food banks. Sounds like a good gig. I know they have that here but I never looked into it for details.

Yeah it says $75k expected first year. $100k for experienced drivers. My guess is they have productivity bonuses that increase your pay. The faster you are the more you make.

I could ask.


A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Thanks for the reply Kearsey. Yeah the potential to make that kind of money on a 4 on 4 off split sounds like a really good gig. I don’t think I’ve heard of a split like that for local drivers. Does Prime have day cabs now?

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

Prime has been using day cabs for years in both local and intermodal.

The last batch were Kenworth. If you are asking if there are any available right now, I have no idea.

Recruiter Nikki Yost could answer best about the job.

Transporting freight using two or more transportation modes. An example would be freight that is moved by truck from the shipper's dock to the rail yard, then placed on a train to the next rail yard, and finally returned to a truck for delivery to the receiving customer.

In trucking when you hear someone refer to an intermodal job they're normally talking about hauling shipping containers to and from the shipyards and railyards.
