    Whaaa

    Yes, your rolling traffic jam is a menace for everyone else on the road to dodge and get past the long lines of backed up traffic you cause because you can't flow with the traffic.

    Don't act like it doesn't exist either Mr. Prime.

    Maybe the mother ship will get some brains some day and let you guys do the speed limit... Oh the horror lol !!
    Hahahahahaha

    I dont know what others tell you but i can share my experience first hand.
    Joined Prime for same reason, free training and great money.
    Did one year and 2 months solo with prime, was leasing. Did not train. In 14 months living in that deamn truck i covered 128000 miles, and gross pay was for 14 months 76000 dollars before taxes. Could not get out of the truck due to those crazy payments that build up like a mountain if you not driving, happened few times because truck broke down.
    My trainer left Prime, my so called classmates 3 that i know off left prime.Other few guys that were friends of my friends left prime.Around 15 people i knew left Prime during the time i was there.
    People talk a lot of nonsense.Do 1 year yourself, and please come back to this thread to reply me, was i right or wrong by sharing my experience.
    You will be so committed to your truck and driving at Prime that you will not have any time left for your own life and your family.
    You input basically all your time, day or night and the pay is not equal to the time of your life that you lost driving this can. For 24/7/365 is sh....t money.

    Look. I drove for prime for about 7 month . Got the CDL on my own so cant attewr to PSD phase. But while i was TNT you got at least $700 a week depending on how many miles you and your "trainer" drove. Now there were some weeks where I'd make 800 to 900 bucks. Just know you wont see home hardly at all. I got a regional job after 7 months and make twice what prime was paying me every week. I got lucky with this gig cause it's an awesome job. Home every weekend and only in the truck 2 maybe 3 nights a week. Which I get paid for. I do unload my freight (tires) tho. Which is totally fine with me. I don't mind the extra work and the pay makes it that much better. Just get some experience and get the #### out.

    I can relate, drove for prime '88 thru '94, co. and lease, trucks would roll back then. Money games were the same though.they keep you on the fence between broke/surviving, cost me my first wife. hard lessons but the prettiest deals cover the deepest black holes!
