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

    Pros

    They will provide you the means of getting into the industry. They will get your working quickly. Newer, usually well maintained trucks. Plenty of miles, as I could see. Good 'culture', but that isn't why 'we' are working for them. Needless to say, if you are truly coming from rock bottom, this would be a good place to start as any.

    Cons

    There are reasons why the turn over rate is so damn high and it isn't because everyone just has a bone to pick. Their model is broken. You will *not* get any decent amount of home time, if any. They will drive you into the ground. They will *not* have your back at any time. The entire structure is set up to cover everyone's behinds *but* yours. You *will* get screwed and blamed for things out of your control. The pay rate for the industry in very low. They do not care about you, your situation, or anything beyond the next trip. You do not have any friends. The training, although quick and legal, is sub-par. You will be amazed how quickly they will throw you into the quick of things, which is not good for the novice. You will have no legal protections as a driver, nor will they assume any responsibility. Your paycheck will never match what they advertise. Your Phase training will take entirely too long, will be delayed, and you will waste weeks or months of your life 'waiting'. Almost everyone in this company is simply 'waiting' for the next step, whatever it may be. CR England has the lowest outlook for its employees out of every trucking industry. The only enthusiastic ones are brand new. Finding a trucker who has been there for more than two years is almost impossible. ...again there are reasons why.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back your drivers. They know they got a crappy job at a crappy company. They find that out the very first time they look you guys up on the internet at any website or talk to any other driver. At least give them a little bit of respect and stop trying to oversell and mis-advertise the situation. It's insulting, dishonest, and drives everyone's angst up just a little more. ...and for god's sake, GET BETTER PHASE TRAINERS.

    Pros

    They give raises but that's it.

    Cons

    They video tape you in the company trucks and every single company truck has a tape recorder in the radio as soon as you turn on the radio your being monitored this company is trash and will talk trash about you to the next company you try to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't talk crap to your drivers when you hide in a building and no one can see you. They are infamous for this... I still don't know why they are all so mean

    Pros

    Nice rooms, friendly environment, game room, movie theatre, little convenience store. Training is fun but inadequate.

    Cons

    In training if you get in an accident of any kind during phase your done. Your side of the story won't matter to them. They are about getting you through as fast as they can the training is meager you will know very little about driving of your own

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trainers need to be reavaluated, sleeping in the back when they know you are on windy icy roads with no experience. Team driving first week of phase one is wrong
    I was fired for something I couldn't of prevented because I didn't know how because no one was their to teach me
    The trainer should have been fired because he didn't train me to do any thing I was winging it the whole time. What trainer, more like horrible team driver know that cdl I worked for isnt worth anything- paperweight

    I have been working at CR England

    Pros

    Having a 3 on 4 off day work schedule. 4 on 3 off. From week to week.

    Cons

    Work schedule 12hrs. Work day 13 to 14hrs.
    Very demanding no appreciation. Harder you work the more you get. Rare job reviews. One 1% raise in 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach what you know. Train upper management before placing them in lead over people who know more than they do.

    Shysters. Complete and utter shysters. As a company, they seek to take every advantage of employees through deceit.

    Pros

    Your long prison sentence just ended and you are desperate. CR will still hire you and treat you almost as well as you are acustomed.

    Cons

    Manipulative, deceitful and criminal practices presented exceedingly well in extensive and ongoing training programs for evil minions... er, management. Actual lashing is discouraged publicly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Repent and seek to atone for your wickedness. Also, never miss a payment to the bought politicians or fleet of lawyers kept on retainer to try and keep CR managers out of prison.
