    Hi folks,
    Newbie here, I’ll be attending the Prime Inc orientation out in Salt Lake City. Hope everything goes well. Excited to start my trucking career with Prime.

    1st year is a learning experience. I hope you get a decent trainer. Watch and learn ,ask questions and learn, don't try to accelerate the process. A lot to take in but look how many do it successfully.
    Good luck to you.
     
    FlaSwampRat Thanks this.

    Good luck and remember to keep your chin up when you have a rough day, tomorrow will be better.

    Good luck. You should get some good training on chaining up this coming week if you're running I-80. Looks like snow is coming.

    Thanks for all your “Good Luck” to me. I’ve progressed to the next step of becoming a professional truck driver. I’m now on the PSD phase of the Prime Inc training program. So far so good! I’m learning a lot. My trainer giving me previews also with the things I will learn on the TNT phase. Hopefully goes well on this phase.
