Second Seat Driver (Former Employee) – Mira Loma, CA – May 29, 2014
England has paid driver training, while you train your paycheck goes toward your tuition so you don't really get a paycheck, they also help you with California air brakes endorsement as well as obtaining your CDL. That being said the training is way too short, the instructors are rude and offensive, if you are not proficient in truck driving within a few days they will degrade you and go so far as to call you names in front of other trainees. Once training was over and I had obtained my CDL I was still totally uncomfortable driving a truck and knowing that I would have to drive on the road was totally intimidating. Also as soon as your training is done cost for "training" are still deducted from your paycheck, training is about $6000 dollars. My training driver was ok his truck was a real P.O.S it had a bad transmission, the route that I was to train on was between Los Angeles and Salt Lake City Utah so there were a bunch of hills in between, I have never been more scared when driving, I called management in Los Angeles a few times for a different driver, I was constantly given the run-around, I was eventually told that I did not have the right to ask for another training driver, a few days later I quit. I love to drive and knowing how to handle a big-rig on the road is fun but England made it a bad experience. If you can not find another job or you don't mind life on the road then maybe give England a call.
pay, life on the road, truck stops, poor equipment, management
Fun place to meet new people and start your career
Class A CDL Driver (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – September 26, 2016
My experience at C.R England as a student wasn't bad at all. My instructors were very informative and cared enough to want u to succeed. The only down fall was the living arrangement with 7 other guys.
The Rec room as awesome
You have to pay for your own food so if you broke and you cant buy food you wont eat

I was busses out to their school in Utah, if you can fly do it. The instructors were very nice, and taught us well. However when I got out with my trainer, the company couldnt get me routed home to transfer my CDL. Ended up footing the bill to fly home from Chicago. I never went back.

Don't really know a whole lot about the company as of yet. I am a trainee so far my experience has been very positive. I especially enjoy the trainer Carl he is very thorough and I have learned a great deal about truck driving. You see my only last experience was riding a bicycle in Jamaica and picking bananas for a living but now I'm going to grow up and be a real truck driver watch out folks here I come
The instructors have a lot of knowledge to make students efficient on the job.

Attending this school was one of the best experiences I've had. I have covered the basics of operating a tractor trailer combination. I have also learned the parts of the vehicle to better coordinate with recovery assets.

Trainers were very professional and good at what they do, training was enjoyable although the days were somewhat boring in class, the Testers were Fair. Overall the training course is very good, better than most out there

Very short, very intense, very fun. You have to make it work for yourself. There will be times where you get tired of your trainer but u just have to do what u got to do.... Only for 10 days! My experience was not as bad as others say.
