Company driver

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at CRST Expedited

Pros

The Twenty/Ten Program and the miles.

Cons

Terrible communication; the driver can easily be misled with pay expectations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care to make certain the driver is compensated as communicated that he may concentrate on safe-driving and on-time pick-ups and deliveries-- not the twenty dollars of due reimbursement; also, communicate clearly any instruction, direction, expectation, or resolution.

    I worked at CRST Expedited as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Its great for the owner operator...it isnt for the drivers...its a place to start but there are far better places to receive training.

    Cons

    Low pay, you have to monitor and record everything (miles, pay number, you are not paid on time, answers are hard to come by, your stuck in a contract as a student paying double for already government funded opportunity, worst training available, your trainer only requires 6 months experience to train you if they have winter driving which is only a pro for the trainer dangerous for you, dispatch is not always out to help you. This company has mulitiple law suits so its going to cheat you to be able to stay open. Money is made mostly from contracts and cheating people not good drivers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more fleet managers, have weekly meeting on how to improve yourselves, take responsibility, admit when there is something wrong and work to fix it instead of cover it up.

    I have been working at CRST Expedited full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good miles
    Good equipment
    Good Fleet managers
    If your 100% dedicated to the job..you wont have a problem.....its like this..

    If your not driving your not making money
    if your not making money...the fleet managers arent either.
    if your reliable and ontime...the fleet managers will assign you more jobs

    Cons

    school they use for student training sucks....unless you really wanna be a trucker..your never gonna pass your test.Basically its a 4 week course cramped into 2 weeks.
    I only got 4 hours driving time in school.....not much more on pre trip....and hardly anything on alley docking and backing....
    Some trainers are terrible.....but if your not happy..well make sure u get a load thats going near one of the terminals...Fontana,CA,Oklahoma City,OK,Cedar Rapids,IA or Carlisle,PA....then request a new lead driver....Once you get a decent trainer..loisten to what he's trying to teach you...doesnt matter if u 'think u kno it all' or not...he s just trying to help you
