    Some drivers enjoy long vacations each year. If they're in a lease, when they return from vacation, they're in deep debt, because of not making money while on vacation, because the truck payments and all other expenses don't stop just because the driver is on vacation and relaxing.
    I usually took a month off to vacation overseas, but could afford to do that because I'm a company driver not a lease driver.

    CFI is dry van and trains in Missouri. Not sure if they hire in Nevada, but you can call and ask.
    Statement from student there:
    "Training done at Crowder College just outside of Joplin, CFI headquarters. Highly recommend. Low student to teacher ratio. Plenty of wheel time, decent room and food. The school will give you your actual CDL exam."

    CFI
    Company-paid Tuition
    With a 12-month commitment to drive for CFI, qualified students can now receive fully paid tuition to attend driving school in Missouri. We’ll even cover your room and board for the duration of the four-week course.

    Stevens has a home time account for that. Your lease payment comes out of that. You set up how much you want to go in it each week.

    That's a pretty good scam in itself.
    The driver saves money in an account to give to Prime, instead of using it for his vacation.

    Every truck show I go to always seems to have recruiters set up. I've always wanted to go up to the booth, listen to their LP spiel and then openly call them out on it in front of everyone lol.
