Don't Believe Anything They Tell You During Recruitment
Almost Employee (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – November 1, 2013
Pros: free bus ride to their facility
Cons: everything else
The things I was told by my recruiter turned out to not be the case. When I arrived and went to orientation, I was told "Your recruiter lied. It's their job to get you out here any way they can." I was stuck at their facility in the middle of nowhere trying to figure out what to do. The one thing I knew was that I would NEVER move forward with any company – more... that lacks integrity. They admitted their recruiters out and out lie to recruits to get them to come. Once you get there, you find out the truth and then you're stuck. If you go, make sure you have bus fare home because they do NOT provide it. They pay your way out there but don't expect a paycheck. Even if your recruiter says your employment starts that day, it's "Unpaid" until you complete your school. Getting it in writing makes no difference. I got several confirmation emails about my Driver Job, but when I got there, was told I would not be paid until I completed my training.
Run as fast as you can in the other direction. If they are dishonest and lie to you up front, there's no way they will change that once you finally do go onto their payroll. You'll be in for a long, hard, disappointing ride.
There are some really good, legitimate, forthright trucking companies out there who act with integrity. Choose them and leave CR England alone. – less
Independent Contractor (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – September 16, 2014
Pros: nice equipment
They are going to pay the LEAST of any company (except Swift maybe). You are going to be made fun of for driving an England truck. You will never get home and will wind up homeless working for them since you will not be making any money with them.
Truck Driver (Current Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – September 14, 2014
Working for this company does not pay the bills and I can not take care of home the way I need to they don't pay good it's a good place to start and use for a stepping stool to get truck driving experience but that's it not good as far as making money and trying to take care of a household
Semi-Tractor Trailer Driver (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – September 1, 2014
Pros: i love my profession
Cons: i don't like to be out of work too long.
I was re-train at CR England refresher school in order to get back on the road.I was doing really good until I had to resign.But I am a good driver and is willing to do what it take to get back to driving.
Truck Driver (OTR) (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – September 1, 2014
Pros: traveling, seeing the wild life in the states.
Cons: long, cold hard work hours.
Although the hours were long, visiting cities I just read about and seeing the wild life was well worth it all. Meeting people from all walks of life, some good and some you wouldn't take home to meet the family. Winter times out on the roads were the toughest to grasp. Had to watch out for strong winds, rain and snow. I have a new found respect for – more... truck drivers. The Management needs to go out on the roads with the truckers to see what they go through on a daily basis to understand how to fully treat their drivers. – less
OTR driver (Former Employee), Waxahachie Texas – August 19, 2014
I had just got my CDL a month before starting CR England. The main purpose of me going with this company was to get my experience driving a truck. I did 35,000 miles in a little over 2 months. I drove through 3/4th of the states in the country. I got experience driving on the open highway and also got experience driving in and out of congested cities. – more... I left after 2 month because I was offered a job in the oil field. – less
