    Pros

    Pay scale is fair. They get me home on time. Good equipment. They listen to my concerns. Daytime fleet mgrs easy to get hold of. Any pay problems are fixed that day.great benefits

    Cons

    Long wait times for maintenance, very long wait times at night and on weekends for fleet mgrs. Load pay for trainers with no trainee should be higher

    Advice to Management

    As a trainer I should not be making .22/ mile because I have no student. Also, trainers should be able to sit down and interview trainees before they get on truck.

    Pros

    newest top uf the line volvo 780's,freightliner cascadias,etcpay every tuesday and thursday,lots of loads to haul ,zero downtime,the best 13 million dollar terminal at riverside,the people will give you space to unwind between runs--really i wish all trucking was this cool

    Cons

    they act as though you are stupid and their slave--but when you figure out the scam--you have control over them--remember-if you don't haul the load--they don't make the money

    Advice to Management

    take away the power from driver managers to play stupid games

    Pros

    Good miles
    Good equipment
    Good Fleet managers
    If your 100% dedicated to the job..you wont have a problem.....its like this..

    If your not driving your not making money
    if your not making money...the fleet managers arent either.
    if your reliable and ontime...the fleet managers will assign you more jobs

    Cons

    school they use for student training sucks....unless you really wanna be a trucker..your never gonna pass your test.Basically its a 4 week course cramped into 2 weeks.
    I only got 4 hours driving time in school.....not much more on pre trip....and hardly anything on alley docking and backing....
    Some trainers are terrible.....but if your not happy..well make sure u get a load thats going near one of the terminals...Fontana,CA,Oklahoma City,OK,Cedar Rapids,IA or Carlisle,PA....then request a new lead driver....Once you get a decent trainer..loisten to what he's trying to teach you...doesnt matter if u 'think u kno it all' or not...he s just trying to help you

    Not a bad company if you know your team driver well.

    I worked at CRST Expedited (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of miles, air freight loads, drop and hook. Weather alerts sent to qualcomm and mandatory slow downs/shutdowns help new drivers. If you run hard your dispatcher will notice and give you plenty of miles.

    Cons

    Knowing your team driver well will help, if you just meet them at CRST, problems will likely develop within a couple of wks. I've seen that too many times and it will affect you negatively and your miles. Too many people are sitting due to not finding a team driver and team driving isn't easy. Night/weekend dispatch are often rude. I was an experienced driver as well as my boyfriend and we were off the road for 3 yrs so we had to go out with trainers. My trainer was not qualified for the job, couldn't back, or drive more than 5-6 hrs of her shift. That was disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    All trainers should have to take a backing test to train, my trainer did not. Night/weekend dispatch should be held accountable for the way they treat drivers.
