    Pros

    Good training. A lot of customers. Never runs out of miles to give their drivers.

    Cons

    Company too big. Does not listen to its drivers. Executives seem to have a hearing problem when drivers bring up problems that need to be solved. Good company for getting experience. Bad company for retiring in. Salt Lake City Head Office is very dysfunctional. People in head office only listen to voices in their own heads.

    Advice to Management

    You could save more money if you only listen to your drivers.

    Pros

    You will stay moving if you can communicate. Will normally get where you ask to go.

    Cons

    Poor communication will leave you without enough miles to pay for food. Communication is very important in any detached position.

    Advice to Management

    Increase your pay for new drivers. 25 cpm is barely lunch money.

    Pros

    Good OTR learning experience and that's where it ends. Just good training at the school house.

    Cons

    Lousy pay, the company could care less if any of their drivers ever make it home.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your drivers.

    Pros

    If you like being lied too, treated like cattle, don't want or have a life away from work. Well this company is for you!

    Cons

    There truck driving school is nothing but a joke. I was there for a total of 14 days. Out of the 14 days only 3 days was spent behind the wheel. And out of the 3 days about two and a half hours was actual drive time. You spend most of your time in a class room learning very little about drive a truck. Most of your time is spent on learning C.R. Englands policies, how great it is working of them and how much money you can make. What they convently leave out is; C.R. England is the laughing stock of the trucking industry just ask any truck driver at the nearest truck stop. The amount of money they tell you will make is true but not with C.R. England. C.R. England pay is the lowest in the indusrty. Oh, when they say were a family orientated company; what they are referring to is there family not yours.
       Now after you "graduate" there wonderful trucking school you move on OTR training. Which is nothing but a joke. Most if not all of the driver trainers themselves have less than a year driving experence. Second your paid minimum wage about 450 a week. If you were getting paid by the mile it would average out to 1700 a week or more depending on the miles. C.R. England is making a killing off there student drivers.
      Now that all of your "training" is done you get dropped off in Salt Lake City not have a clue who to talk to were to go, etc.. Here you retake test that you possible failed, pick if you want to be a solo or team driver. And recieve a phone call from a DM offering you a job.
       From start to finsh you are lied too. Your nothing but a number and the company could care less about you. Run as far as you can from this company, stay away from it.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Pay your drivers. Better benefits. Stop treating your drivers like there cattle, they are the ones who are making you your millions a year. Ask yourself this question: what would you do if you had The Teamster knocking on your door and all of your drivers stopped what they were doing until you and the union can come to a agreement. Personally i'm not a big fan of unions but your company is one place that needs one. Are you proud being the laughing stock of the trucking industry or is greed that important
