    This company, sounds good, my friend is trying to recruit me....I am impressed with the remarks so far, and the equipment looks good, especially the trucker GPS-mine is meant for 4 wheels and would get me in trouble if i wasn't careful lol. Does Pride run teams, or just solo?

    Only problem with your desire to drive for Pride is that your home town is in Alabama? We don't run the Southeast states, so home time would be non-existent for you.

    I'm enjoying my time so far with pride...i cant take my truck home though do to the area i was hired out of so i have to drive 115mi to go home one way or approx 50 in gas or 100 total. (durango) is why lol, i was hired out the boise area (50 miles) so i park in the range at a secure lot. Im still new with them but have a good feeling about them. I will answer any questions others might have if you decide to look at pride as your future emplyment opportunity!

    I have heard all 48 but you have the options of running, west, midwest or 48...i choose west but wouldnt have a problem with doing a load outside the region from time to time!

    Jay England is a punk and his daddy is an A-hole. Just wait until your load of Dryers ice cream melts because his crap equipment malfunctions when you are in bed sleeping. It is all your fault driver & they will fire you and screw you on your DAC. Before doing so, Daddy England will stand down stairs and bad mouth you to other drivers not knowing who you are and that you are the one he is mother #####.

    This England company can rot in hell with the other one if you are interested in my opinion.

    Is that really what happened? Or did you make a mistake and then your pi$$ poor attitude compounded the fact?

    Thanks for sharing that. I had a feeling about that, just because my experience with CRE and swift was so bad. I will stay away from all those "mo" companies. They are suppose to be 'honest in their dealings with all people' but i find they lie about that. My ex used to tell me that doesn't apply to business. hmmmmmm. I think it does! Thanks again.

    They force sleep apnea study to new drivers if BMI is 35 or higher...3 month DOT card yet no problem with passing physical...If you go with what they say, you will pay $1600 out of your pocket...If they want drivers to be tested and force it but DOT does not, then they should have to pay for it! Scam I tell ya! They don't force you to use there people but they do do recommend them because they are at a discounted price...I got my test done with referrel through my primary doctor and no apnea was found...They said I need the test because my BMI was 35. I called and went back to place where they do the DOT physicals and told them 28 days later my BMI is below 35 and they checked and it was but declined to extend my medical card to a 2 year saying that wasn't enough...Pride is opening a can of worms they shouldn't be and they need to re evaluate there so called requirement.
