    Pros

    CRST will get you started in the trucking industry. They try to keep you busy with miles but they don't always succeed. They have some good dispatchers that are friendly from the start - but not always. The 20/10 program is nice.

    Cons

    Some of the dispatchers don't value you until you establish a professional relationship with them. This takes time, and many drivers never get to where their dispatch behaves professionally with them. Conflict of interest between drivers and dispatch can lead to drivers not getting home when they wanted and/or not getting the loads they hoped for. Also, there can be significant downtime due to breakdowns and waiting for loads.

    Advice to Management

    Drivers get fired quickly and easily. Why that same standard is not applied to dispatchers is beyond me.

    Pros

    Good miles weekly. Nice well maintained equipment. Good company to start with if your fresh out of school. Paid twice a week. Pay advance if needed. Good benefits package

    Cons

    Forced dispatching, lower end of pay scale especially for a teams only company. They don't pay practicalll miles driven rather zipcode to zipcode. One day off for every week out with a min of 3 weeks out. Terminals are run down hole in the walls besides main headquarters. No prepass or ez pass sorry night and weekend dispatchers. Hazmat loads don't pay extra

    Advice to Management

    Need apu's. Pay more for Hazmat runs. We need more weekend and night dispatchers. Make the terminals nicer for drivers. Bonus program for those who dont idle excessivly
