    As the title states I will be departing for Prime’s orientation in Springfield, MO on 1/20. I’m excited and nervous to get a chance at a new lease on life, but I have a question about employment history. It is my understanding that they need five years of non driving work history. I have all my info from 2013 to present except for one stupid job I started in high school and worked at briefly after graduating May 2013 before moving on.

    I called this employer and they refuse to verify my own info. They hung up on me twice. These arses suck and I’m not even going to bother a third call. I don’t remember the exact dates I worked there, just that I for sure left the first half of September 2013. Should I list this employer and explain the situation if they fail to verify? All I’ve got left is an income transcript from the IRS website with their name on it. Really don’t want to get sent home over something so stupid; I’m sure I’m overthinking it.

    Thanks for any advice you can give. Looking forward to life on the road!

    I don’t have a pay stub sadly. I have a copy of the IRS income transcript. That’s all...I may have an old pay stub somewhere but I’m sure they’re long gone.

    They give you a W-2? Then that was with your taxes... the transcript should show the income

    I looked back over the transcript. It does indeed list employer ID number, my name and social as well as the income I made at this job. I guess that’s all I need?

    Just make something up. I read dozens of times on this forum not to lie on your application to prime but i managed to pass with a 100% fake employment history albeit with a legitimate company.

    I'm kinda having the same issue with my prime "Recruiter" about this, instead of her being helpful with answering if the info I provided is enough she is very negative and rude about the situation.

    Any way to request a new "Recruiter"?
