    I have been working at Crete Carrier full-time (less than an year)


    Great benefits, great pay. 401k dental vision, health, and life insurance. Profit sharing. Military Aprenticeship program available.
    The company treats the truck drivers really well. I stayed in a single room in the downtown Lincoln Holiday Inn during orientation. The same hotel the corporate staff stay in. Very professional. BRAND NEW equipment. I'm driving a 2013 Pro Plus with auto start and non idle heat and AC. Electronic logs . I've never been pressured to get a delivery done if I felt roads were unsafe. This is my first truck driving job. EVERY Crete driver I talked to said they like the company and I'm lucky to have picked Crete verses other companies.


    One day off for every six worked, but that's trucking. Management willing to work with you for time off needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit as many Vets as possible. We bring a lot to the table. Open your own truck driving schools in every state.
