    Pros

    If you have the right dispatcher you will do great! They get you home when you want to go home without too much fuss.

    Cons

    You don't get sent where you request to be sent, you get stuck on the East Coast where there is no money to be had. If you end up in the negative, it will take you FOREVER to get up out of it! My advice, if you don't have a family at home, don't bother going home because going home WILL end you up in the negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a better plan for your employees when they go home so they don't end up in the hole so often!! And get a handle on your sales/dispatch teams so that lease operators don't get stuck doing $300 (total pay) loads!

    I have been working at Prime

    Pros

    One of the best management team ever worked with. You'll have opportunity to make good revenue working here. New trucks are easily available without any down payments/credit check, Go Prime!

    Cons

    Working here successfully, heavily depends on your relationship with management. If you are a hard worker, but not so good, when it comes to good communication with management, you're likely to have a hard time getting ahead here. Many hard working people left this company just for this ONE reason. Also, Leasing Truck can have a havoc effect, if your fleet mgr can't provide you good pay load. Bottom line is Prime is making sure they get paid every week consistently, regardless whether you get paid or not, That is a GAMBLE that you play when you lease here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees/contractors more often. They have a direct feed back on your performance. There should be an evaluation survey on management by employees/contractors before any pay increase/bonus is offered to management including fleet manager. Lease term should work for contractors also. Contractors should be allowed to have their equipment inspection done by independent mechanics before lease contract goes into effect.
