    Pros

    Will put you through a school and guarantee a job. Instructors are all pretty cool. Facility is nice enough. Very to the point on everything.

    Cons

    Not enough communication. Have to ask a lot of questions and straight answers can be hard to get. Expect wait time on a lot of things

    Advice to Management

    Try to get instructors all on the same page a little more.

    I have been working at CR England (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company's training is great. It's amazing to see someone go from zero driving experience to getting a CDL. The trainers, instructors, and staff really do help you every step of the way.

    Cons

    I would say some people need more behind the wheel training before taking the test.

    Advice to Management

    I would consider having an advanced , intermediate and a beginner's course of training. Some people don't really need all the time to test out. I had
    18 years of behind the wheel of driving with the U.S.Navy but yet I was treated just like anyone with no experience. This should change.

    Pros

    All the instructors from the road instructors to the backing instructors are very skilled. Matt (a backing instructor) was amazing. If it weren't for him I don't think I would have passed my test.

    Cons

    The wait time for a trainer to get on the road to start my driving is about 2 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the good work and hiring great, qualified instructors.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable trainers who will do everything they can to get you your CDL. You have to do your part.

    Cons

    The organization of everything seems to be lacking. I wish communication was a little bit more effective.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and organizational skills should be improved upon. Setting a set standard would improve both of these issues greatly.

    Pros

    Free school and you get your CDL class A after 10 days with a job very fast paced hands on course that's teacher you a lot.

    Cons

    A week or two of waiting till you get a trainer to make money, some of the training vehicles are really run down and need a lot of maintenance. The instructors all teach different so when you go to test you may get someone who sees your trainer as wrong

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to keep your new people paid, a week or two of waiting to make money can leave them with no home to go back to. Many have had to sell personal vehicles, personal belongings and many other things so their family's have a place to live while waiting for a trainer

    Pros

    Trainers were professional and very knowledgeable. The road training was excellent and more than prepared me to pass the backing and road exams.

    Cons

    Some things are not communicated well by the recruiters i.e. Possibility of more than 10 days at training facility. Classes were sometimes interrupted by people having to correct update or change paperwork.
