I started with Prime Inc. in November 2011. (I had driven for 10 years, but had taken time off). My PSD training consisted of my PSD Instructor Playing with his phone, while I was driving for three weeks. Passed all three tests, and was
assigned a TNT Instructor. My TNT instructor told me that you are here to makeme money. There was no actual training, just allot of 10 plus hours a day driving, no sleep, as my TNT instructor would take turns fast, ran the worst
part of the road and my average sleep was between 4-5 hours. After six weeks of this torture, I requested a new TNT instructor, as the conditions of the truck and of the Instructor was less than acceptable. My second TNT Instructor had
been a truck driver for 8 months, and now training drivers with only a very limited time on the road. He did not know how to throw chains, or to drive in snow on the hills.
Once I started on the path of being a leaser, I received only one paycheck, on the first week. Then my truck had a power divider issue, and was in the hole for 694.00, and I went for 8 pay periods without pay, and in 4 checks, I was in
the negative up to 1150.00. I asked for a fleet manager change, and only after threatening to leave, I was granted a fleet manager change. I also wanted my truck to be looked at Detroit diesel, but was never given a chance or
appointment. My new Fleet manager, made a promise I will guarantee you a paycheck" During the last four weeks of my employment. My fleet manager, called me and accused me of "Not Having a Clue" and "We cannot do Business" and "Don't ever apply here again to work here, I will say no". His promise he made, fell short, and as a result, I was not able
to even pay my rent, and looking forward to being homeless after leaving this company.
I wanted to retire from New Prime Inc. Instead, New Prime Inc, not only retired me, but even from my home. I asked for consideration to have one of my tripscould be estimated so I could save my apartment, as I sent a QUALCOMM for this,
He said NO. So I feel that Prime and this fleet manager are only after one thing "Money, the customer, and when its needed the drivers" I think that without drivers this company could not make money. As for me, I leave the
company soon, and will have to face a loss of my apartment, and will even have to pay me way back home, with what little money I have.
If you are considering New Prime Inc, please read over all the reviews, ask questions. I will end up filing a bankruptcy because of a lack of pay and the uncaring attitude of Prime. Remember if a manager says to you "Keeptrying, things will get better" don't believe it; get out before you end up like me. I would not wish this on anyone.
