A well oiled Company
Driver (Current Employee) –  West Valley City, UTDecember 6, 2016
It was great for me. Only thing was that bus ride from NC.Got here, and was all hands on deck.You can surely get you CDL'S if you come focus. Nothing is given you will earn it.

Good place to start
Student (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTDecember 5, 2016
The school is fast paced and teaches you the basics to get your cdl. Make sure to bring plenty of money or you'll be stuck eating ramen every day.
Pros
Trucks are fairly new and good instructors
Cons
Would like more time in trucks. Class size can sometimes limit your time with trucks.

Good Company To Use As Training Wheels
Truck Driver Class A (Current Employee) –  Reno, NVDecember 2, 2016
Been Working For Here For 9 Months almost done with the contact in a couple of weeks

Good school and training (depends on instructors and trainers)

Good company for people who are just starting

Personal opinion just do your 9 month contact and once your done with that go on with another company like jb hunt etc..

The best way to make money in CRE is to go to the Walmart Fleet In Reno Nevada and do your training and 9 months there

Cons is that you are far away from home and the company ignores your request to transfer home HR wont call back you got to call them

Best way to get hometime work a full month next comming month get a week off but request it a month in advance
Pros
Good Driving School
Cons
Far Away From Home, 9 Month Contract

I came to get a CDL and they helped me acheive that goal! :)
Driver (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTDecember 2, 2016
C.R. England has you training and learning to actually drive these beasty trucks within 3 days of getting to school! There was challenges but you can't give it up! Practice! Practice! Practice and same goes for studying. If you want it, you have to put your nose to the stone as one Teacher / Instructor said to me. Good Luck! ;)
Pros
Your in a truck withing 72 hours, hands on training!
Cons
Cons like anything are going to occur, it's situational, however I can honestly say Cons here were far less than Pros!

Fun workplace but very complicated
I currently work here (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTDecember 1, 2016
A good place for someone young with no wife or kids. Everybody that's joins this company should understand that this is a road job not a home job. All in all a fair company to start out with to get your CDL and the milea/ experience to further your career. Best of luck to all who join and congrats to those who get there CDL through CR England.

Truck driver
Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Richmond, INDecember 1, 2016
Awful business, where not paying their drivers enough, wouldn't let drivers go home to visit family for the holidays, time management was horrible, and customer service was awful.

Good place to get started
New hire (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTDecember 1, 2016
I was recruited, sent to school and graduated within 11days. If you want to learn how to drive a rig and don't have a lot of money this could be an option for you. I am a veteran and so my contract is only six months, not bad to start.
Pros
Free bus ticket, lodging
Cons
No cons, complaining doesn't do any good.

School was informative but
Driver (Current Employee) –  DriverNovember 29, 2016
The school does not offer a food program. If a program were to be implemented it could help those who don't have a income coming into this school. Maybe offer a food voucher per day and pay it back over contract. There can be options
Pros
Great learning experience
Cons
No food programs
