This is awesome news. I was a little worried when I got a call from my Recruiter. asking about a minor charge I caught when I was 18. But all is well training day starts 9/1 no way am I sitting on my butt for 35hrs on a bus. I bought an airline ticket for 118 bucks pretty sweet deal... only is an hr and half ride. just wondering how much cash should I bring ? any ideas what supplies would I need ?

Supplies.... mainly just food, clothes and hygiene stuff. I think at Prime, you do not get to go home before going out with your trainer. So, sleeping bag. Pack as light as you can because you will not have much room during training on the truck. You don't need much cash with you. If you have a check card, it will work for most things you will need. To be safe you may need cash for the DMV. This is a good link on here that may help you

Items To Pack

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

ed up the process.
