CRST International is one of the nation’s largest transportation companies, providing total transportation solutions and comprehensive logistics services to customers all over North America. Every year, we invest millions of dollars so that our customers benefit from having the best-trained drivers, the newest equipment, and the latest logistics technology. We value the trust invested in us every day as we carry millions of dollars of inventory across the nation.
While other trucking companies were destroyed by the recession, CRST emerged even stronger with annual revenues exceeding $1 billion. We operate with zero debt, enabling us to reinvest in equipment, technology and human resources so that our customers get the best service at a competitive cost.
With more than 4,500 trucks, one of the industry’s newest fleets, and the largest roster of team drivers available, CRST’s customers can count on us. We never promise more than we can deliver and we always deliver more than we promise.
CRST has a rich history of being innovative. In 1955 Herald Smith came up with the idea of contracting with owner/operators who were hauling livestock from Cedar Rapids to Chicago to return with loads of steel instead of empty trucks. CRST was born.
CRST is a second-generation family business, led by a senior management team with more than 250 years of combined experience. Because we’re family owned and operated, the long-term interests of our customers and our company drive our actions.
CRST believes in charitable giving and we are actively involved in our communities. We support and partner with a variety of organizations, including United Way, Habitat for Humanity, Junior Achievement, Variety Club and Horizons, to name a few.
I have been fortunate enough to experience many different types of opportunities. I started with the company in an administrative role and have progressed into an Account Executive role working on one of our largest accounts. CRST has also provided me several opportunities to participate in leadership development activities and programs, providing both online and classroom-style tools. My experience within CRST Logistics has been one that fosters a collaborative environment amongst its employees that spans all title ranges (from administrative level, up to the President), leaving an open line of communication that encourages growth and development for individual contributors.”

Everything has been going fairly smooth through 45 days of employment. The more experience I get, the more comfortable I feel and everyone around me is very helpful if I ever have a question. I laugh at least 5 times a day and leave with a sense of accomplishment.
I am happy to say I can't think of any! :)
Advice to Management
You guys rock!
I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CRST International (Cedar Rapids, IA) in October 2017.
I had heard of CRST from living around the area, and they came to a career fair up at my college campus. I talked to them, and they told me to apply online with them for the program. Once I filled out the application, I got a call back from them telling me to come down and do an interview with them. At the interview, it took probably about an hour, but there was 3-4 people in there interviewing and asking you questions. There was a lot of situational analysis questions. I thought all of the questions were fairly common interview questions, just be prepared to back up why you did something, or the reason that you felt it was best to take a certain action.
