    So I'm pretty sure I can get into Prime. No felonies or misdemeanor for the past 10 years. Clean Driving record. Good health. I've been with the same job as courier for 11+ years, not one accident or tickets. My question is should I just go with them or pay $4400 for one of best CDL schools in California. It's literally down the street from my house. I know most people say don't sign a contract but I plan on staying with Prime for at least a year anyways. I'm really interested in their Tanker Division. Plus I don't think Prime takes money from your checks, unlike other companies. I think it's all paid for as long as you work for a year. What do you guys think??

    Does Prime hire for tanker positions where you are?

    How close are you to Pico Rivera and Tracy?

    No they don't, but I am willing to relocate for a year or 2, save some money, then come back to SoCal and get a local tanker job. That's my plan at least
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    Tanker jobs are more difficult to hire on with right out of school. Used to be a dozen or so that would hire new cdl school grads.
    Schneider Bulk still does, but don't know if they hire in SoCal or not.

    Schneider was the first in the industry to successfully deploy a Tanker trailer that also fits seamlessly on a train, and customers are continually discovering the value. You’ll haul liquid bulk chemicals in a 40-foot tank trailer that can be used on the rail and over-the-road.

    Schneider hires new cdl school grads and their tanker school is in Houston, TX
    You posted you'd relocate for a year or two, so Texas would be a good choice.
    No state income taxes taken out of your pay either.
