    Yeah, I talked to him, going into Fargo this coming Monday for orientation...I didn't have any problems with him, imho from what I have seen of him(I looked on his fb page), he just doesn't put up with bs, and basically a straight shooter. The funny thing is this "turbo trucker" insists on calling Denzil everything in the book but can't explain what was put on his record.

    Drivers should investigate a company more before going to work for them...get out and ask other drivers in person at the truck stops what they think of a company your interested in, and go to a few drivers not just ones that are new their or the ones that been there for a while....I determined long ago that I wasnt going to jump around from company to company...I had to get out and ask etc etc and there is no perfect company. They all have issues, but you have to find out whats the most important for you and to them, where I work there are much more positives in my experience and also many other drivers that work here than there are negative ones. If I weigh up the negatives and weigh up the positives, the positives outweigh the negatives. Stop jumping around so much and find a company after you have done your homework that works best for you...some situations you cant control, but just as they check you out, do your homework BEFORE you hire on with them. I think long term, because everytime you run down and chase down another company to drive for, now your starting all over again. There is something to be said about someone who stays put with a company that at least works towards keeping drivers and is doing what they can to help the common turn over in the industry...I work for Conway Truckload....no there not for everyone, but I like the atmosphere here and my co-worker drivers for the most part like me to. Again do your home work and find what works best for you. As for me its a little give and take here at Conway, but Im treated very fair and as I said there is more positive here for me than negative. I feel bad for you that you havent found a home yet, do a honest self analysis of yourself and then one on the company and see where the happy median is at for whoever you decide to go to work for....hope everybody is having a great day/night....

    Thinking about going there to work. Do they have their trucks turned down so much that prime can pass them?? And are their loads long coast to coast like they say.? Thanks for any answers on these questions..

    We are governed at 65. However they have a passing allowance that let's us do 70 for a short period.

    We do get coast to coast runs, it's not the norm, at least for me. I did just finish back to back 2k+ runs however. Currently on an 800 miler to New Jersey where I should get a long one west.

    Prime brainwashes their lease op trainees to operate at a certain rpm to get 7.7 mpg at all times or else... Even if they are maxed out to 80k going up a big hill, I've seen them moving at 45 mph, staring straight ahead like zombies.....
