    Pros

    Gives everybody an opportunity despite your criminal record. Keeps you running.

    Cons

    I didn't find much things as cons. Every truck driving company has their cons.

    I worked at CRST International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I absolutely loved working for CRST. After 12 years of service with them I had to retire due to medical issues. I never ever had a problem getting pay or hometime issues resolved. Management staff and dispatcher were always there to help. They worked with me constantly. When I had to have heart surgery in 2009, management, including Cameron Holzer kept in constant contact to see how I was doing and worked with me until my strength was back to normal. This is the best and most caring company I have ever worked for. Thanks to Cameron, Laura Wolfe, Mike Standburger, and a host of others that would take several pages to fill, this was the best job I have ever had in all my working career. I miss everyone and everything about CRST.

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say. It's all good.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the exceptional work you do.

    I worked at CRST International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sizable w/brand recognition, plenty of services, but good luck getting them to work together.

    Cons

    Frustrating seeing the lack of resources available with a company of rev over a billion dollars.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to squeeze blood out of a turnip, and stop cycling mgmt. Seemed like every 6 months there was a new division head being fired or replaced. Cannot keep good leaders because of corp culture.

    I worked at CRST International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You can travel through all the 50 states and get to know how beautiful this country is. The Grand Canyon, the Rocky Mountain.....,

    Cons

    Often you deal with driver managers that have never drove a semi truck. There's a disconnection between reality and what they ask you to get done.

    Advice to Management

    Driver managers should be individuals that are retired truck drivers, more familiar with the condition of the job

    I worked at CRST International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Will train you to get CDL, travel to see the country. Newer (not new) trucks. Hawkeyes community college where you may get trained is top notch.

    Cons

    Low pay, split pay, high price for schooling, you pay every cent that is paid to get employed. They are the worst company I've worked for in truck.

    Advice to Management

    Allow solo driving, limit team driving. Increase your pay per mile non split. Don't charge drivers the cost for background checks and DOT physical, your only company I've seen do this.

    Pros

    Excellent pay,good home time, brand new truck, great driver managers, everbody in shops and road emergency very nice and very helpfull. First company i work for that talks the talk and walks the walk. I wished i could stay but i was needed at home and had to get a local job and come home every night.

    Cons

    They like hard working,responsible courteous drivers and if you are not well, you are not going to make it here or anywhere

    Advice to Management

    There is no perfect company but for what I saw i couldn't think of anything they could do better the rest is up to the drivers and how the team up together when they are over the road
