Class A CDL Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – April 16, 2014
when i first started doing truck driving i enjoyed it for a while, because i got to travel the country practically free. but when i started missing my family and wanted time off to go visit it was almost impossible for me to take time off so wouldn't do over the road ever again. As far as the company you'll deal with both good and bad people. the sad part is there is more bad than good. these people well try to put you down, make you feel like your expendable and reality is you are. because they always have new drivers graduating so they have no value or respect for their drivers wouldn't recommend it for anyone even my enemy.

As a new driver just entering the driver life my review can only encompass what I know. The school is staffed with drivers that care about teaching newbies how to operate safely, how to park safely and verify your vehicle is safe to operate. I feel that there are too many students being taught in such a short period of time. The drive time and parking range time is too short, I'm being hired to drive safely and one week is not enough time to develop a good foundation before we get paired up with a trainer.

These people really don't care about anyone I worked for them for almost two years they went through at least 6 different people in management. And they after 3 months working for them as a mechanic they will let u go

C R England is ran with a great professional environment along with a staff that is great. They treat you like family pointing out your good points and helping you enprove your short comings. They give you more than your far change to improve your life. They are not perfect but to me from what i have seem they give it there best shot. Some do not agree but C R England still hold out there hand to help all.
Some students make fun of this work and not take things serious until they fail
Good place to start out. Schooling paid for up front.
Driver phase 2, 2nd seat (Current Employee) – X fleet – February 20, 2017
C.R.England paid for my truck driver training. I filled in an on-line app and they got back to me the next day. After attaining my cdl, they fairly quickly got me through the hiring paperwork, orientation, and into a motel to wait for the next driver trainer to pick me up, this took a few days I believe. Trainer was very friendly and helpful during the month I worked with him. I wish I had received more instruction and repetition in backing into docks, but the trainers have a lot on their plate. In short, if you are willing to work hard, and keep trying to soak up everything, you will succeed here. You will initially have a hard time getting home in all likelihood. Home time is nice, but it can take longer than expected to get back on the road, depending on where you live.
Driver training paid for. Good culture in place with regard to training and safety.
Pay could be better, but the driver training is paid for so...
Commercial Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 19, 2017
my days usually consisted reviewing a load performing pre and post trips. driving to and from shippers or receivers in a safe manner then taking the proper breaks in between drive shifts. what ive learned is to always put safety first no matter what. management was ok. the work environment was pretty friendly. the hardest part of the job for me was being away from home a month at a time because you miss out on the small things. the most enjoyable would have to be linking up with fellow drivers who shared the same hobbies as i did.

This company has no care in the world for its drivers. All it cares about is putting people in the school. Once you graduate and become a driver for them they throw you out with no help and put you with someone who only has 6 months more experience than yourself. They are about the government money for training new students. Its a total joke of a company.

The classame is fast paced and they teach you a lot of info in a short time. The instructors are very knowledgeable and helpful. If you listen to what they tell you and apply it to driving the truck then you'll be a safe driver.
