    Pros

    If your homeless you can live out of the truck

    Cons

    To many. Everything is a scam here. I don't no if it is because it is a Norman owned business but very long hours of waiting for loads. Lots of pressure to sign the scam lease program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really. It seams this is the way America is now.

    I worked at CR England full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is good. Employees are close, making it a tight knit community. Good Job security.
    They have a week of 'Employee Games' during the summer (free lunch and games). The company will continue to grow.

    Cons

    Company:
    No work life balance.
    Experience is valued over education.
    Average employee works there for about 5 years before being moved up.
    'Boys club' mentality, no women in management.
    The busiest season for trucking is around the holidays - dont expect to get time off after halloween through the new year.

    Customer manager position:
    The amount of work expected out of you is more than can be completed in any 40 hour week, even at full blast, with all attention on work, with no breaks or slowing down. Management's attitude is if you really care about your job, you will come in early, and be available and responsive 24-7.
    Managements looks down on employees that work less than 45 hours a week, their attitude being that you must need more work to do.
    You cant take sick days. Even with a note/throwing up at your desk, management will verbalize that you should 'work through it'. If you have a sick kid - you will work from home (management does not provide a laptop).
    When you first start, you will work monday - saturday for the first few months, then a saturday about once a month.
    It is mandatory that you work 1-2 holidays a year. And since vacation time is given by senoirity, expect to work major holidays (Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years) for the first few years, and expect to not be able to take your full vacation time straight (1 week) - rather a day here, a day there. Vacation time is determined a year before you take it. Taking additional days unpaid will not happen. As I mentioned, the busiest season for trucking is around the holidays - expect to work 70 hr weeks.
    There is a lot of inner-office drama as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since the new generation of the England family took over - I really dont think management cares at all about their employees or what they think, only the bottom line. If just that alone changed, They would have a chance at reviving the employee moral. They are very removed from the employees since the company has grown.
