    Pros

    Lots of different types of jobs to choose from. Room to move up.

    Sometimes management doesn't listen to the masses. There should be more of that.

    I worked at CR England full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Can make a great living both dedicated or over the road. Training is a great experience for all. A lot of great customers,drivers and employees. They upgrade facilities for drivers as well as to grow their business. Thanks to all who helped,supported and worked with and along side of. Good memories. A million thanks to Mr. Gene and Bill England for all they do for their drivers. We appreciated them and always wish the best to future generations that follow in their footsteps.

    Cons

    Weather is the Rockies...be prepared in all climates and terrains. Remember where you started at and help fellow drivers when they need a hand.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your experience drivers as an asset instead of another driver on your board. Pay should be comparative to other companies to keep you season drivers and trainers. Equipment was well kept and give all miles equally to both owner operators and company. Balance is the key to happy runners.

    Pros

    Schooling is the only thing I can think of that might be for the beginner otherwise than that, its the kind of company that will leave a bad taste in your mouth for the rest of your life!

    Cons

    They lie and lie about the lies! If you get your license as a beginner here , make sure you can transfer it to your home state before you commit to anything! Dont expect to be treated like nothing other than a Farm Animal and for Gods sake dont Lease a truck from these people, you will be competing with your own company drivers for loads. Too many other bad things to say so just leave it at that!

    Advice to Management

    GET ANOTHER JOB!

    Pros

    There isnt any. Co has great sales pitch that if you can turn a blind eye to the reality that is happening; yes you can make a living off the misery & hope of others.

    Cons

    Recruiters are given incomplete info about the living conditions their recruits subjected to and the subjective, numerous ways a recruit can be discouraged to leave the chaotic hell of cdl school. Its all about the numbers and pressure is put on recruiters to book anyone with a heartbeat into school, even though the recruiter knows that certsin applicants have no chance of making it. I personally made two young men homeless by spewing the propaganda used to recruit these desperate individuals. I had not been trained nor did I realize that I couldn't give a bus ticket back home to recruits if they walked off co property no matter what the reason. Then when taking the time to recruit applicants with a better chance to be successful; my numbers dipped and I was given a warning. Didnt care and from then on barely met production expectations. Hated my job and about to quit when manager said if they let me go I would get unemployment which I did. With my last paycheck, spent two days searching homeless shelters for the two 19 year olds stranded in SLC. Found one and paid for bus ticket home w/funds for meals. Even today, i still look for the other ex recruit when I volunteer at the shelter and, pray he somehow found his way home.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing I can say to a company that isnt run by men with any humanity left inside of them. Too many years and a set corporate culture evolved that makes it easy to compartmentalize, ignore, pretend not to see C.R. England's contribution to SLC societal issues. Co's pathetic giving to charitable organizations for media exposure doesnt negate their participation in the genocide of those from lower socio economic stratification. My passion and work since leaving the co is working with the homeless population and, raising funds to try to balance the evil this co and other trucking companies have become when they worship money.

    I worked at CR England full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to complete my CDL

    Cons

    I had a horrible mentor. He masturbated in the sleeper while I was driving and fondled himself in the passenger seat while I was driving. After being placed with another mentor and completion of training, I was assigned to a team. We reached our destination and were told that we must pay out of pocket for them to unload the truck. The amount they asked for was more than my paycheck!

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees and they might stay longer.


  10. My entire class review.

    Pros

    They give you a license

    Cons

    We had about 48 members who completed the class. We made a Facebook page to monitor the success of our fellow peers. Out of the 48 there were four who completed the nine month contract and two that are current drivers after two years. The rest have gone on with outdated skills and shot driving record. The trainers have high turn over rates because of the low rates. England has so many people coming through there school they do not value their employees so they pay low and have higher turn over rates. DO NOT see this company as anything more than felons stealing title 4 funds from the money supply. Steer clear of C.R England if you can. If not may the odds be forever in your favor. -The Victor-
