    I've been with prime for almost 4 weeks doing a refresher so far I'm happy here. I'm going lease, I've done company before and I want a new challenge. Prime takes care of their drivers from what I seen. UnlIke some companies. Plus they never force you to lease. I was asked if I was going company or lease.

    These prime threads are almost as entertaining as the old JBS threads...

    I never was, and I had tire damage on trailers pointed out to me a time or two when I went through driver line up.

    What's the benefits of leasing a truck than being a company driver.

    You literally are your own boss. Don't want to take a load? Tell Prime no. Want to go home? Drive there. Don't want to follow Prime's fueling program? Create your own. As a company driver, you do what Prime says, when they say it. Lease, to me, is all about freedom. It's certainly not for everyone, but it is for me.

    What's driver line up? You'll have to forgive me I've only been driving for 13 years, I don't know the Prime lingo. Maybe my new hero, Pchase, can teach me how to be a truck driver....

    I'm guessing he means the inbound inspection bay. Whenever you pull into the terminal, you go through the inbound inspection bay, and they go over the trailer, tires, lights & vehicle maintenance history. Outbound inspection is usually quicker, with the option to purchase fuel as you leave. Driver line up is actually a desk inside and between inbound and outbound bays that deals with the Prime ID/Comdata badges, some of the paperwork and such.
