VERY NICE DRIVING TO STATES I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD EVER SEE
Professional Driver (Former Employee), Fontana, CA – July 16, 2014
Pros: felt good to drive the open road to different states
Cons: trying to make up for lost time
STARTING OUT DRIVING TRUCKS WAS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED. I JUMPED IN THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY HEAD FIRST. YOU LIVE AND YOU LEARN AND YOU LEARN TO LIVE. AFTER BEING ORIENTED FOR C.R.S.T AFTER GRADUATING FROM ADVANCE SCHOOL OF DRIVING, I, CURTIS MARKSON, WAS TOLD FOR THE FIRST 8 MONTHS ON CONTRACT WITH C.R.S.T WOULD BE MAKING .22CENT A MILE SPLIT MILEAGE, MEANING – more... CO-DRIVER AND MYSELF WOULD GET .11CENT FOR EVERY MILE WE DRIVE. I'VE CAME TO FIND OUT, AFTER WORKING WITH THEM FOR 3MONTHS, YOU CANT AFFORD TO PAY RENT OR PROVIDE FOR A FAMILY ON THAT SALARY – less
Lots of work to be had driving long hours as a team

While you drive your team member sleeps in the cab. When he drives you sleep in the cab. Team driving was not for me, but there is good money to be made as a team. More long hauls are givin to team drivers.
Driver (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OK – November 5, 2013
Bad company. They set me up with ran down trucks and expected me to live in them. When I wanted assistance getting back home, they refused and I was out on my own in an unfamiliar city and state in the snow. I heard they did other trainees even worse. Beware of this one!

TRUCK DRIVER (Current Employee), RIVERSIDE CA – September 28, 2013
Pros: absolutely none
Cons: too many to list here
Where do I start.. never in the history of companies have I ever seen such a greedy, dishonest, non-caring, deceitful corporate environment. If they are not busy lying to you and cheating you out of your pay, they make all kinds of false claims about earning potential and miles. You work your butt off only to receive pay so low, it places you in the – more... lowest part of the poverty scale.
They are a mill. Every week a fresh new crop of victims from their sham truck driving school. They provide no benefits for you and your family until after 6 months..HALF A YEAR.. of employment which very few who start ever reach. You do not make anywhere near industry rate of pay until near the end of a 8 month contract for slave labor. PEOPLE..AT ALL COST..STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY..YOU WILL REGRET IT TREMENDOUSLY IF YOU WORK FOR THEM!!! – less
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Cedar Rapids, IA – July 9, 2013
Pros: seeing the country.
Cons: team driving
I was a team driver. I learned how to drive. I didn't deal with management much. My co-workers were okay. The hardest part of the job was trying to sleep while other driver was driving. The most enjoyable part was seeing the country.
Sales/Customer Service/Equipment Control (Former Employee), Hidalgo, TX – December 2, 2012
Pros: great lunches & dinners along with travel
Cons: flow of communication is sometimes slow
Review daily inventory of empty trailers and tracking shipments until loads were delivered to the final consignee. My previous work was with a fleet of 400 trucks, this company has 2300 trucks. It was a good learning experience on how the company moves on a bigger scale. Management is very on hands on the day to day operation and accessible to approach – more... for any concerns. Over all I found myself working with very good and knowledgeable people. The hardest part of the job was the outdated software they use to create and update shipments. I enjoyed the freedom you are allowed to work, very independent oriented. – less
