    I have been working at CRST International

    Pros

    You learn a lot about the industry and there are a lot of cool people who work here. Most are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Crappy environment (mold in bathrooms, ceiling tiles falling out of ceiling due to leaking roofs, the main bathroom is closed for maintenance seemingly every other day, stains on carpet & dust accumulates like there’s no tomorrow). Morale is extremely low —leaving upper management to try and put a bandaid over it, but ultimately the “perks” just feel like a slap in the face. Turnover is extremely high and you think that would be a large red flag, but they don’t care. Management is almost never available when you need them.
