driver (Current Employee), everywhere – March 15, 2014
As a current driver for CRE, who joined the school and career through the VA program. CRE has been lying from start to finish. I'm still currently finishing my 6 month obligation, at which time I leave having already been offered local, better paying driving jobs. CRE, failed to honor phase 2, .25 cents per mile, instead discloses .12 cents for phase – more... 2 after your contract of 5k for tuition is signed. if you get stuck with a regional driver at 1k miles a week @.12, that only 120.00! for all that driving and 100 bucks is all you earn? you'd have to be an idiot to think thats fair, especially the price for food at truck stops !!!!! PLEASE HEED THIS WARNING!!!!!! CRE tells you what you want to hear making empty promises, all the while willfully attempting to rip you off. While attending the school, I actually had instructors on the backing range in Ut, tell me to take my license and run!
I come to you fellow readers as a decent human being, stay away from CRE, AND avoid the stress of no money, and the sense of being taken advantage of. I don't have time to go into detail the subsidaires CRE recieves from the attendance, paid by the USG...BUT U won't see a dime! – 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.

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

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
