    Everyone may not have the same opinion about a company or the same experience. Just because you cousins had a hard time with the lease or didnt work out for them dont mean it would be the same if you or another driver tried it. I would recomment Prime in my top 10 and also would put it in firsts. Leasing does not workout for everyone and thats why not I have no interests in leasing yet

    Is it possible to get back with them if your still interested? Did you tell your recruiter the experience you had or at least someone before you left?

    Heck the rates are one of the good things about Prime. Who all is paying more than 72%?

    72% doesnt mean squat if the 100% isn't high enough. :) I wouldnt lease a truck that i couldn't afford either. Can you afford a $120,000 truck if not don't lease in my humble opinion. The prime guys I've talked to are bgetting less than $1.00 a mile to the truck, no thanks!

    This all coming from those who dont lease from Prime.

    Emolson, if you want to know about leasing, ask IP. He knows what hes talking about. SE is also a l/o. Those two know how to run a lease truck to make money. Experience is the best teacher.
     
    Emolson Thanks this.

    Emolson I recommend you speak with drivers you come across at the millennium building,pad or even at a truck stop and ask them questions. People here have other motives for saying the things they say if you get what I'm saying.

    Don't you mean "instructor." You don't have a CDL I'm assuming. And none of this ^^ set off the alarm bells in your head? None of this is correct behavior for a CDL instructor, and unless you passed this information back to your FM all that will happen is someone else will end up with this jerk. But then again, you didn't have the presence of mind to even ask for a phone number.
     
    OpenRoadDreamer Thanks this.
