I have been working at CRST Expedited

Pros

Salary is decent for the area
Coworkers are like a close knit family
CRST continually generates profit so jobs are secure

Cons

Management has no concern for overworking employees
Micromanaging is widely practiced to save every last dollar
They know it's hard to beat the pay so they treat you like you have no choice
There is no development of staff for promotion
Most management positions are filled from outside
When something isn't going right, the first reaction is to find someone to fire

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to actually care about low company moral. The blatant disregard for the job satisfaction of everyone over the last couple years is showing in the mass exodus you are experiencing now that the economy is recovering.

    Pros

    Can't think of anything positive to say about this company or their training. Stay away from this company. Shoot yourself rather then work for them.

    Cons

    They lied to you right up front as far as what you will make working conditions equipment training etc. everything involved is nothing but a lie in a con. To enslave you on the road working for them all while living like an animal with some other poor slob co driver that got sucked into the same 8 month contract that you did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to treat your drivers and people in your employment with some level of respect. Live up to the promises you make when you recruit the people. And pay a fair wage to your drivers so they're not living at a starvation situation on the road. So happy to be away from your company now and actually making a living and having some enjoyment in life.
