    Prime is respectable as far as starter companies go, but that may change once the founder leaves. The others I don't know much about.

    Do you already have your CDL? Where do you live and what kind of trucking interests you? Van/Reefer? Flatbed? Tanker?
    @Chinatown will be along with some suggestions and the more info you supply the better.

    Millis Transfer was a good starter company but was recently bought by Heartless Express. Not sure if the purchase has impacted the culture yet, but it's bound to sooner or later.
