Current Employee - Fleet Manager

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

    Good free training contract & good training, newer equipment, rapid advancement.
    I had a great dispatcher! (Scott Nelson)

    Cons

    Not much time @ home but typical for OTR jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible with time off. 4 weeks on 1 week off doesn't seem unreasonable.

    Pros

    they got me in a truck, I made at least the minimum wage allowed by federal law

    Cons

    They ripped me off. Two years ago I was stuck in the Georgia Heat wave with no fuel. the system was down. I asked dispatch if I could put my own money in for the fuel to get rolling and was given a quick yes for that. I spent over a month of Transflo-ing my 450.00 dollar receipt. My fleet manager Austin just kept telling me to send it in. I quit and for two years I repeatedly sent in request to get paid to the HR department. The only response I got was an invitation to come back and work for them again. Their twenty ten schedule doesn't work. Night crew always comes in and pulls your load and gives it to somebody else and always on friday. So you just sit the whole weekend and make no money. This is company policy they don't tell you about in the training. Don't work for these people if you can avoid it.
