    i truly do not know where to begin about this company other than to say something along the lines of the pay sucks .33 a mile with 2 years exp yes i know i did accept this but just the same below industry standard if you ask me, i have been with this company for about 4 months my average take home pay is about 450 a week most weeks lower these people could careless about if you run legal or not i have been given multiple loads with three stops all spaced out about 6 hours- no way to run them legal. when i have called to complain about my pay all i have been told is that if you want more money you need to turn more miles, keeping in mind that i have spent sometimes an hour on hold trying to get a load, i could go off for hours about these people but all i should say is you should avoid these people alltogether i made more with swift than i have with these people if you have any questions about them please send me an e mail @ [link removed] i will be well brutally honest about them

    I worked for these loosers a couple years ago for a few months. I had to quit cuz they paid late and screwed with me cuz I refused to run over hrs. I did put my complaint on a web site, but as usual, these type people don't care. I can't say enough bad about them. There is one positive here though - I can honestly say that I left a bad taste in thier mouth when I left.

    I live about 2 miles from Priority here in Upstate NY and the truck slook like junk. My sister in law worked there for some time and all that I have to say is that I hope you didn't have to deal with her. She is a B**CH, and probably made every drivers life miserable for no good reason.

    I have to agree that Priority has some of the most junk trucks any company could get. I could go on and on about how pathetic this company is. I worked for them 3 times in 1 year because of 2 reasons: 1) needed a paycheck and 2) experience behind the wheel, i will never give a rookie or a veteran a chance to work for this company.

    As of Sept 1 08 priority is no longer in business, celadon bought the customer list and the trucks/ trailers are going to the auction block. A. Hunter actually sent a fleet wide message at noon tueday to tell us we had till Sat to return the trucks to the terminals.

    Yeah, I saw that on OOIDA. Do the drivers go to Celadon?Or just thrown away?

    the drivers were "incouraged to give celadon a call" some guy with a stack of business cards was at the terminal when he felt like waisting "his" time.

    I've met a few of the Priority drivers at Flynns truckstop in Shrewsbury,Mass.They seemed like nice people.Too bad this happened,but maybe it will be better for them in the long run.
