    It's a lot more like $3k for the equipment and the deductions are weekly from the settlements. I think it normally comes to about $70 or so a week.

    What are you drivers leased onto Prime averaging per mile to the truck?

    Does Prime no longer do fingerprints? Someone in their current class told me they didn't get fingerprinted. Does this mean we don't have to pay the $155 anymore? I thought the $100 was for the FBI background check. Thanks

    I dont recall getting fingerprinted when I went through over 2 years ago. Yes, you still have to pay the $155 application fee which includes covering the costs of the background check.

    Got ink printed 3yrs ago.

    But, considering my shady past...........LOL

    Can't see them not doing it. Whether not it has changed, you will definately be printed (digitally) when applying for TWIC.
     
    Rachav Thanks this.

    At least during orientation week, Prime does not fingerprint new hires. Re. the $155, $100 is an "administrative fee" you pay upon checking in, and $55 is the cost of obtaining the MO CDL permit.

    I haven't heard anything about a background check run by the FBI. I think you're thinking of the TWIC vetting procedures. The govt. background checks for that are something the Dept. of Homeland Security asks be done, not Prime.

    (That isn't to say Prime doesn't do background checks, they do, and they're apparently quite thorough)

    What's the chain of command at Prime? I'm trying to figure out who is above my trainer's Fleet Manager?

    Also, do the Northeast Regional tank drivers only train in the northeast or do they have to train OTR?

    Thanks
