    a.) I would think all these drivers "go to WORK" for Prime... (never been there, personally.)
    b.) Why do you have this posted in the "BAD COMPANY" part of the forum, having never worked for them?
    c.) Trifecta pays a bonus, and often your trainer will kick in some money toward your gear, should you go flatbed.

    Due to driver churning the megas always have empty seats. If you choose to go with Prime or another carrier good luck to you.

    Examiners who are employed by prime who have been trained and certified by the state to examine students.

    Often there will be a state examiner to over see the examiners of prime.

    The students then go on to second phase of training teaming to learn more about the job itself and gain experience. Then after that they get their own truck.

    Dude, testing is all in house with all of these Mega carriers. If you can suck air through your pie hole, you to can hold a steering wheel.

    Trust me, I know... I was there at Prime in 1990... Made good money, until they started the expansion... I never looked back. I am on my seventh truck, and I own this one free and clear, and the last six too to boot. No more leases here, cash is king... No clue how these guys do it, as the rates are the same from nearly 30 years ago. Just saying.
     
    G13Tomcat Thanks this.
