    Pros

    Job. No super-tight deliveries unless its a "Hot Load" Your assumed to be incompetent so your not expected to perform...well.

    Cons

    Driving with psychopaths and dysfunctional egos that never sleep...disrespect when you sleep (ie) jerking the truck bobtail or loaded....nightmare. Drive 10 months and leave for solo. Don't listen to the 1 Year BS or better yet do a full year and take ANY job you can have a life and a living wage. Small truck companies can be just a small "wanna-be version of the Big Family CRST..or worse!................BEWARE. BEWARE and good luck to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None you are what you are.

    Pros

    Needs plenty of help finding who they want to be in the trucking industry.

    Cons

    Service is 7-10 days anywhere you want service. Driver comp is way too high causing uncompetitive pricing in the market. No carrier depth in their brokerage. No pricing leverage with for hire outside service providers no internal logistics management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone who knows how to run assets. Rebuild your brokerage.

    I worked at CRST International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are no pros, went home 3times in one year, abandoned in NM for almost two months with Pneumonia, trick to Miami to be terminated for a photo radar 65mph/55mph?

    Cons

    Sacrifice my life on Winter Driving, Pneumonia (Homeless living on the street in NM), game they play in signing a statement about speeding 10 over speed limit, to terminate me? Unemployment was owe to me, but they made absolute sure, fought to make that impossible over a photo radar 65mph/55mph that speed limit signs were not posted, before construction!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No respect for Safety, Human Resources, 'NEVER RETURN CALLS', never was compensated for Hotel in OK City 550.00, as for 2,000.00 in NM, 2500.00 for a driving School that take you out 3times in 2weeks?

    Negative Outlook
