      Pros

      Great place to earn while you learn

      Cons

      Hometime was hard to come by; also they paid you based on their own idea of how many miles you drove, which was usually less than the actual miles

      Great start but pay isn't competitive after a year experience

      Pros

      If your looking to get your CDL this is the place you want to come. Great training facilities and the staff there is plenty nice and for your first year of experience with a CDL no other company will pay you more but after a year of experience there about 100 other companies will offer better pay.

      Cons

      Pay, If you don't the lease which I don't recommend unless you want to become a trainer you will have a truck with a 900 plus payment a week and the freight your running will be super cheap. I've heard dispatchers say they am for 1.34 a mile for the month which is definitely not decent when you have a truck that's 3600$ bucks a week and your pulling cheap freight. Just go company and get your experience and then move on

      Pros

      Easy to make a successful career here. After a year of leasing I’ve already paid off tons of debt and have more in savings than I’ve ever had - and I’ve had some great executive work before. My pay didn’t decrease at all during COVID. Definitely stayed busy. They have a lot of different things to help and assist with anything you need. Outstanding CDL training(definitely see the difference between other companies and them), fair pay, very nice staff, well organized and professional. Great, maintained trucks.

      Cons

      A few bad apples in the staff throughout, some drivers seems to have horrendous experiences but that’s definitely not the norm, if you encounter that just speak up and switch fleet managers. Pittston terminal orientation and upgrade process is horrible. They look busy/professional when the supervisors are in town but without that they waste SO much time, miss A LOT of important information, and pretty much do the bare minimum. You can see how much better training and upgrade is at Springfield.

      The Worst, but with Benefits if you Value them

      Pros

      • You can get your CDL Fast Enough if you don't mind being forced into a contract. Like around 3 months worth of training. • Unrelated Side Pro: You can technically buy a gun in Springfield MO pretty easily. It worked for me. To work for Prime you must transfer your Drivers License to Missouri. And technically you'd be a Missouri resident by doing so. So technically, in a sence, if you wanted to head over to good old Eagle Armory for a cheap handgun, it would be no issue. No gun license or permit required. Just a backround check. Missouri thankfully has loose gun laws. • Another pro would be the Millennium Building. It's nice. Plenty of things to do.

      Cons

      •Terrible Trainers and Co-Drivers. •You can be left homeless like me if your trainer harasses you and abuses you, and kicks you off his truck for asking basic questions like is this the entrance, or are these part of the bill of lading too? • Everything Else.

      Pros

      Good money and communication with the company.

      Cons

      Longer you’re out the more successful you can be financially. However, that comes at a cost with family and I didn’t realize that until it was too late.
