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.
OTR Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 1, 2016
Would drive at least 10 hours a day on top of that trained new driver the ins and outs of the company. Was always treated as a number not a person. Getting home time was like pulling teeth. The ]pay for training was pretty good but when you always have to be away from home its was almost not worth it
Truck Driver (OTR) (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – February 1, 2016
I only ever met a few co-workers while working here, and they were good people for the most part, but I did have a few bad experiences, and I often felt like I was being treated as a number rather than as a person.
Class A CDL Driver (Former Employee) – CA, NV – January 20, 2016
I went to England to get started into trucking. Family is full of drivers and I've always be fascinated with big trucks and machinery. Their school literally teaches the bare minimum basically to move the truck, you have to hope you get a good trainer in order to actually learn anything which I lucked out with. Placed on a dedicated Walmart account right out of training but it was a fleet out of another state which meant even though it was dedicated, I rarely saw home and my family. I made good money there and the other drivers were fun to hang out with on my off time but the office staff didn't care about anyone's personal life aside from the night shift which didn't really have any pull. I had to quit to finally get home and transfer to my local dedicated Walmart fleet with them. I made even better money here, home most every night, and had a decent truck. That was until my load planner quit my first month in. The main load planner filling in was a complete moron. Playing favorites was a major problem with him. My weekly pay checks went from averaging $1000 after taxes to averaging $300-$500 and my miles went from 2500 to barely breaking 1000 per week. I was switched into a truck with major brake issues, steering problems, and air leaks. It took them a month to finally fix the brakes, a few weeks to fix the steering, and over 2 months to address the air leaks. Mind you, I kept reporting the issues and put that truck into their shop after each load I did. Because I was constantly complaining about the truck, and rightfully so, my DM and load planner decided to create falsemore... stories to place me on safety holds and make everything out to be my fault. It wasn't long till most of the office was against me event though their stories had no proof or solidarity. I have never been more consistently disrespected than with this company. I was a hard working 14 hour using employee, never refused a load, never had a late load, never failed an inspection, and never had a single accident, yet I was treated like a lazy, idiotic child. Some drivers have good luck with them while others have experiences like mine. If you want your license then apply with caution.less
roadside service agent (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 19, 2016
typical day of work is to answer phones, diaginos mechanical repair issues, deal with repair shops thru estimate and billing. Learned to use different forms of office programs, company software, tech data sheets. Management is a little hard to work with on some of the issues past supervisors have tried and failed with and doesn't include employee's input. Co-workers preform bonds thru friendship with others and work more as a team. Hardest part of the job was the amount of calls coming in and the poor scheduling of people needed to correctly handle the position.
monthly bonus program, vacation/sick time earnings, hourly wage
management my way or highway attitude, prefers no friendships between co-workers
Company Driver (Former Employee) – West Valley City, UT – January 18, 2016
they really want to get you behind the wheel and will help as much as they can to make that a reality. Travel, see the country and find your niche and make some decent money while you learn a new trade.
C.R.Enland was a great place to work to me. I just didn't like being away from my family 3 months at a time.
driver trainer (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 6, 2016
Typical day at work was get route in morning and explain to my student on what to do and how to get to deliveries while trying to sleep during the day and driving at night. I learned a lot about trucking and the U.S. Management was good and had no problems. Co-workers were great and still keep in touch. The hardest part was trying to get sleep while student was driving during the day and making sure he was being safe and getting everything done. The most enjoyable part was seeing the Country.
cdl driver (Former Employee) – Albany, PA – December 8, 2015
ENGLAND for the most part is no different than the rest such as swift..JB..Schneider. the only time I had an equipment issue was flat tires..and even that I can count on one hand. .Nice tractors but it will b your home period. .Even for experienced drivers The cpm was incredibly low for the industry standard. .Like the rest I mentioned in this review they claim you can see the country. See this see that..But all your really doing is passing through!!!!!!
Tractor Trailer Driver (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 8, 2015
trainers are good they teach you a lot of what you need to know to do your job. Most of the things they teach you don't always comply with company policy. Most of company policy makes it harder to do your job..Its best to be owner operator if you want to work with this company. The pay is terrible starting you out at 12 cent a mile and earn your way to 15 cents before you can move on to your career. terrible communication between your driver manager and you on loads. they treat you unprofessional and like children. I wouldn't recommend working here your bills wont get paid here.
its a good training school
the pay isn't compatable with other companys. not even minimum wage
Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – November 24, 2015
I dont even want to do the review for the company! They treat you as if you don't even exist but to solidly work, and as breaks are mandatory that is the only time you will get to yourself. They never give you days off and they always mess up your paychecks and you will always be missing miles on your checks, you will also notice that getting a raise never happens with them unless you decide to train someone. Oh and did I mention they stick you with students that don't even know how to really do the job yet and expect you to learn from them.
Not an ideal company to work for if you need a shower or home time
Over the Road Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – November 15, 2015
I contacted a recruiter from England to try my hand at truck driving after Campo Creek Ranch was going under financially and I was going to be laid off. They assured me that after a couple weeks of classroom training, I would go home and they would assign me a truck and schedule. I was also told I would be making almost $4,000.00 a month. The second week of school the instructor told us that we were actually under contract to now be sent directly to the truck and be on the road for 3 months at the least, we were not going to have home time before that 3 month period. All of my classmates and myself only had packed enough clothes for the couple weeks of school. We had no idea about the 3 month commitment. It was 4 months before I was given home time. I went 5 days without being allowed a long enough stop for a shower. It felt like I was lied to and treated inhumanely so I gave up on the job altogether.
Seeing the entire country and driving a big rig
Lack of pay and not being allowed to take a shower at least every couple days
Trainee (Former Employee) – Richmond, IN – November 12, 2015
A typical day was to sit in class for eight hours a day for six to eight weeks, learning the operations and safety rules of a semi truck. Management and students were fair. The hardest part of the training was being away from my children. Learning new areas was the most enjoyable part of the training.
Driver (Former Employee) – Colton, CA – October 31, 2015
Good company to start your driving career. Don't expect much respect from some instructors. Equipment is good, nice trucks and terminals. Some DMs are fresh out of college and don't understand drivers needs. Overall, ok company.
