I have been working at Prime full-time (Less than a year)
Excellent dispatchers/staff on tanker side, new equipment, good mileage, top pay in industry, right now tankers get .465 starting out before fuel bonus, avg 2500 miles on weeks you're out. All in all a stellar company to begin a trucking career, I've almost completed my first year and have had an absolutely fantastic experience.
The same major con for all typical trucking companies, they don't pay the miles we actually have to drive, they calculate the shortest route from zip code to zip code, when we almost ALWAYS take the safer and less time consuming route. That's simply unfair. However this is typical of most trucking companies for their company drivers, not just prime, but if Robert Lowe wants to stand out as an unmatched fleet, change this :)!!!!
Advice to Management
Change to mileage we actual drive, not the shortest route from zip code to zip code, that's unfair and dishonest.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Prime.
Very short interview process. They will not disclose pay prior to offer. Everything is incentive so they will not guarantee any pay. They tell you that prime is very flat and there is no career development. They allow you to job shadow but the person normally is not expecting you and it's hard to know what the job is really like.
- Are you ok not being salary and only being incentive. Answer Question
