    A bit sensitive??? I believe TokoyoJoe was saying that in jest, nothing to get worked up about.

    Both are plusses in my book. If you are 'that' close to orientation, not saying its a bad thing. Most people don't get through the application process; the other 20% bail during training. You could still be in the 80% that DO make it, man. NOT Prime bashing, just wouldn't have been my 1st choice. If you are good to go tomorrow, I'd say...wing it. Your bags are packed. They ARE a huge company; many DO succeed.

    The last thing you need to worry about right now is more stress.

    IMHO, China would say KLLM / FFE, and I'd say Swift/Knight. Otherwise.

    You are already in, what the heck at this point? Relax, man.

    Ok, if Prime doesn't workout for whatever reason i'll contact KLLM and Swift/Knight and see what they say. I just heard it's harder to get hired with another carrier if you've already been with another one. But i'll go to Prime and see what happens.

    Just focus on what you’re doing in the truck and not any other bs and you’ll get through this adventure one way or the other; be sure to keep us posted

    Stay with plan one. If they 'kick you out' of orientation (it DOES happen)... you've got fallbacks. Your second sentence is SOOOOOO subjective. I could go on and on, but it's not important. The gist of it all is that if YOU screw up at your first company (ie: abandonment or something preventable) it'd be hard to get hired ANYWAY. Also, leaving before your completion of contract with 1st company (could be ANY first company) will impede you a bit, finding somebody else to pick you up, but NOT AT ALL impossible.

    Mr. Rossi, you are so close to the game, just go in there tomorrow, and roll with it. Who knows, they may 'still' find something in orientation that they 'don't like' and send you packing anyway. Then, come back to us; and we shall help.

    Tomorrow is upon us....almost; get a good night's sleep and quit worrying about the name on the door. That's MY most important 2cents, sir~!
