    Simple question. I filled out the online application for Prime. I checked the box that said 'save so you can edit later'. Now I want to change and/or add some information but I can't see a way to edit the original application. Anyone know how? I know they have it because they sent me a PDF copy to my email.

    Ok so I'm exmilitary. Currently have my A and am going to school. Called Prime about their NE Regional Refer routes. Was told have to do 40K training in Penn. That's fine, I understand. Here's my question. Once I get my route how often will I be home? My wife is due with #2 at the end of May so I'd like to be home weekly, is this possible?
    Thanks,
    Brian

    I'm OTR flatbed and when I first went solo I was offered into the midwest regional fleet where I could be home every weekend. Was told that Prime is looking to be competitive with other companies who get drivers home for every weekend and that's why I was offered.

    Being that you are looking to work in a regional area much more condensed than midwest, and that you are looking to work in the leg with a lot more loads than flatbed, I would think they could oblige to what you need.

    Ask someone in reefer dispatch about it, not someone in recruiting.
     
    MacSauce Thanks this.

    How is Prime for experienced drivers? Local driving job not working out like I had hoped. Thinking tanker side. I appreciate any and all opinions. Thanks.

    I've been with prime for 5 years running Texas regional flatbed and I have no complaints. I bought my truck right out of training and it's been paid off over a year now. Like any company, you need to find a good dispatcher and get to know the sales people
     
    Pharroh336 Thanks this.

    Do they have flatbed drivers on the company side or are they strictly lease operators?

    Can someone tell me if students get the lightweight trucks after testing out. I was going to have my wife travel with me. Thanks

    Lw trucker are for reefer and tanker, flatbed on the company side will most likely get you a mid roof, full size condo is for team and training and certain circumstances. if you want the best of both worlds go team with your wife...

    @Billymx, no you don't have to take a lightweight you can get a waiver from your fm to get a condo, you just have to pay for your hotel room waiting a week or so for a condo, prime won't pay you or anything is my understanding
