    Pros

    Lowest priced school I could find

    Cons

    Lowest pay once you get your license

    Advice to Management

    Prove you care about your drivers by giving up a little control. Since where I can get a free shower is tied to where I fuel. Stop trying to get me to fuel at Love's just to save you a few pennies.

    Pros

    Good Pay
    Benefits are ok
    no weekends
    no micro managing

    Cons

    pay is ONLY direct deposit

    Advice to Management

    Please take a page from the previous generation of Englands in charge. I miss when they'd roam the halls and say 'Hi' to us. The younger England's who are now in charge do not do this. Seems like there's less employee/owner interaction.

    Pros

    Continuously adding to their veterans program, just increased pay for all drivers, recognizing veterans every 6 months with 5 veteran trucks. Veterans support Network to assist new drivers. Veterans committee to improve all veteran programs and incentives

    Cons

    Over the road to start and gain experience the first 6 months. If you can get through that it improves drastically

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to the drivers and employees

    Pros

    The company gave me an opportunity to become an OTR driver. It is up to me to succeed.

    Cons

    The pay is much like minimum wage. You need to assure yourself that you can hang in there financially.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more team driver buddy system. Encourage team drivers to enter the program.

    Pros

    They had a 17 day course to get you your CDL and tried to get you on the road as quickly as possible.
    When I started being a consistent (99%+ on time) driver I got as much work as I wanted.
    Low-Stress if you keep your life in order.
    Willing to allow drivers with no experience to train and drive for them.
    I was only shorted on 1 load in my 2 1/2 years at the company (I forgot to have the client sign when I delivered - my bad)

    Cons

    Lowest pay in the industry (Get your 2 years in and find another company)
    Getting back home was difficult (reason I left) and I lived by the Main Facility.
    Poor career if you have family and kids.
    Tons of drivers with negative attitudes, Lots of drivers make poor choices, get punished for those poor choices (Multiple Late loads means your DM won't give you miles till you bring your on-time average back up) and then do nothing but complain about.
    England Facilities have tons of bad drivers sitting at them (good drivers don't ever stop).

    Advice to Management

    Limit cash advances (too many driver get into trouble with them).
    Offer some sort of staple food for beginning drivers to help them get into the swing of things.

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind.

    Cons

    Revolving door in recruiting due to extremely poor work environment, constantly changing pay structure and lack of management focus. If you would like to work for a company that will treat you like a child, CR England is for you.
