    I have been working at Prime full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company provides training,
    Best rates while in training I found anywhere, in addition room and board as well as transport to Prime headquarters was provided. I started looking after I was medically retired from the military and this was the best starter package.
    I started with one trainer that we butted heads a bit, Prime provided me with another to finish training , which worked out very well. Today I keep in touch with both of them and overall pleased with my training experience.
    As a company truck driver, pay tends to be better than most other companies - as shared with drivers I talked to.
    Big plus is Prime's equipment, their trucks are all new or nearly new. This helps immensely when dealing with DOT.
    I found the dental benefits to be very good and their recent plan was very reasonable. I signed up for the family plan. Can't comment much on the health care benefits considering we have coverage through the military.
    My dispatcher has been fantastic. Keeps me rolling and gets me home when I want.
    Fuel bonus is offered on a sliding scale depending on fuel mileage.

    Cons

    Limited home time. You must mentally prepare yourself for a very big change in lifestyle when starting with Prime. Many people don't see it through because of this. As company driver, you will cover the lower 48 although they do have a few regional spots.
