Most of the "training period" entails you teaching yourself. The program is valued at roughly $4700. Not worth the hurry up and wait environment you'll love in during orientation/PSD period of the process.

I realize with the huge influx of students, more trainers are required. Would just like the trainers to be more qualified and "present" during the training period. Lots of chiefs, not enough indians.

They say at prime, this is your longest interview, you will do a week of orientation, take a written test, get a physical, when you get there, then three weeks with a psd trainer, test out for your cdl, and you are hired.

The way trainees are treated after Prime finds out they want to change trainers. They preach if you don't get along you have the opportunity to request another. Yeah right, only after you're labeled as having a problem.

As long as you drive for Prime with your CDL for one year, you do not pay anything for the training program except $155 to start. $100 goes to Prime as an enrollment fee, and $55 goes to the state of MO for your permit.

If you are going through the Prime Student Driver Program, it’s about one month until you start earning the $700 per week with your CDL. We give you a $200 interest-free loan each week during the first 2-4 weeks of permit training.

We offer the Prime Student Driver Program to help you earn your CDL. It only costs you $155 to start, and you pay nothing more as long as you drive for Prime for one year! It is an over-the-road training program that starts with a 4-day orientation in Springfield, MO or Salt Lake City, UT. We would cover your bus ticket to get to orientation as well as 3 meals per day and hotel stay during orientation. After orientation, you would train with an Instructor for 2-4 weeks with your permit. Then, you would come back to take the CDL Exam. Once you earn your CDL in the program, you'll start getting paid $700 per week as long as you are available to drive during the 2nd phase of training (takes about 2 months). Check out this video for a breakdown of the program! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SZZKaOi0qM
