    Pros

    Equipment is kept up to date, they have the loads if you like to run. Great training for those who have never driven a big truck before.

    Cons

    Mileage pay starting out is low. Vacation benefits need to be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Benefits and insurance need to be improved

    Pros

    Seriously. .there's nothing I can say positively, this company is absolutely horrible!!! If you want miles, you will find them here..not saying they will not be miles of chasing down junk trailers for free while burning up your hours in search of them tho..

    Cons

    Very disrespectful fleet managers, equipment that is in shabby, wore out condition and junk trailers that have seen quite a few curbs and dont trail straight..sure they hire students, and in return, those students train other students with as little as 5 months experience. .the best advice I would give any person needing a job with training would be to run as far and fast as you can to another company..CRST IS A BOTTOM OF THE BARREL COMPANY THAT SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN!!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Liars, cheats, disrespectful imbesols!!!!!!

    Pros

    Decent driver managers. Good equipment.

    Cons

    Hard to find good co-driver, a lot of people are insane here. Sometimes have to hunt down trailers for no pay. Maintenance in some company locations are terrible.

    Pros

    Decent late model trucks. If you have a good FM, you'll get the mileage. Great companies and plenty of freight most days.

    Cons

    Can do better at getting you home on time. Better pay, but that's everywhere. No solo driver's, otherwise I'd still be there. Too many days on the road if you enjoy family time or if you have a bad co-driver.

    Pros

    There no good reason to work here. .. You can make more money flipping burgers at McDonald's. .

    Cons

    Cancelled loads always, bad fleet managers, most drivers don't know how to drive, pay is horrible.. If you are in a contract , they basically own... you will never make good money with this company. .

    Advice to Management

    Make the fleet managers stay on a truck for 28 days with the worst lead driver you have.. start showing respect to your drivers..

    Pros

    Good trucks (some trailers REALLY suck)...most of the people (F/Ms, Maint., Payroll, etc.) are decent people trying to do a good job, but the system is screwed up so drivers forget that. Transflow allows you to get paid Tues and Thurs...Best advice? Get your training, get your experience (all newbies should team drive before trying to go solo)...finish your contract, then RUN!!

    Cons

    OMG! Where to start?? Never, ever been on-time for Hometime...1 day for each week out for a maximum of 4 days...was out 3 months one time and only got 5 days home and the extra day was only because no load...F/Ms and other staff are SO overworked its amazing they remember your name...if your co-driver quits, YOUR pay gets dropped to the "solo rate" of .22 cpm! ...even as a trainer, if the student quits, fails, whatever MY pay got cut...I didnt even get my base rate! They finally gave Leads an extra .03cpms...ooooo! 6 years experience and I get dropped to .25cpm???...In all my time there, no accidents, no incidents, no speeding tickets, no deer strikes -- nothing....and what type of "positive reinforcement" did I get? ...Nothing...your paycheck is your reward...dont believe the "$40k first year with no experience"...lol...

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time TALKING about how much you value safe, experienced "driving partners" and just a little more time DOING something to retain them

    Pros

    95% no touch freight, drop and hook plus I get to travel the US while making money. Benefits for a single individual are great, 401k medical dental and vision care available.

    Cons

    Hometime for an OTR driver is limited, a drag for a family person. A driver with no experience has to pay CRST back $40 a week for training travel and transportation to training location.
