    Pros

    Crst is one of a kind type owner operator company. They give you 3 different types of tools to help you succeed. 1. You are assigned a fleet manager to help you in finding the right load in a lane you want to travel. 2. They provide with a list of numbers for their nation wide agents to also help with finding loads 3. And they also have a load board for you to log into to also find loads. So in my opion if you are not happy with the loads then its you to blame cause they give you to tools to be successful but its up to you to make it happen.

    Cons

    The con i have is when there is an issue that they want you to resolve they will put you on stop dispatch until you get it resolve. Wish they would get in touch with you before stop dispatch is necessary.

    Pros

    Cons

    I never made a review on a company and have worked for a few bad ones but by far this is the worse bunch of crooks I ever worked for!!! The orientation is horrible they will feed you one nasty sandwich a day and gone charge you for that so you will make 30$ to go to threw that crap!!! Everyone in the building is rude and disrespectful and if you challenge them about your pay or that rageddy eqipument they gets extremely angry! I quit I had my own truck and I turned all of their equipment and trailer in after delivering 4 loads and I owed them 600$ stay away from these crooks I promise I have stated nothing but the truth

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    freight only pays good, if you bring your own truck over...DONT lease a truck from there, they will rip you off

    Cons

    15 cents per mile they charge you on maintenance that you have no control of is a joke, you have to call in and get approvals on money you put it to fix your truck and you they keep the money...The overhead is to expensive on the low quality of truck they give you, you don't get to pick out your own truck and all the trucks they leasing you are old crst expedited trucks that have been beat to the ground and so many maintenance and dot issues. The company has a really bad CSA score which puts your at risk every time you get the road, you will get pulled into the scale pretty much every time even if you go get your own prepass, Im just putting this out here so other drivers can be aware whats really going on over here and come at there own risk, before i come over here i was with 1 trucking company the whole 13 years of my career, decided to make a change and try something new, I'm not one to jump from company to company but if i would've known what I've kno i would've just stayed where i was but this learning lesson has taught me a lot, I'm heading home to go buy my own truck off the lot and go elsewhere but if you do decide to come over to Crst Malone side, you better come with your own truck because thats the only way you going to make some money......

    Advice to Management

    Management at this Company is the real reason the company is a joke, you have a few that actually care and are honest with you but for the most part all they care about is how they can make money off you, they stand there and tell drivers one thing and then do something totally different and act like they never said that...I communicate with everyone that was in my orientation class and pretty much everyone of them has quit and said the same thing and the last couple that are around are about to quit also, so that should tell you something right there...The companies turn over rate is high for a reason and it starts with Management... Im not being bitter, I'm just want other drivers to be aware if you deciding to make the move and you know whats really going on

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

    Pros

    Operations managers are really there for you and will do their best to "protect" you from top management. Great benefits and pay, easy to work with on family issues and time off, a real "family" feel to the company.

    Cons

    Unattainable goals, long hours with constant work traffic, hard to communicate with other departments, expectations are not always clearly defined. A lot of management turnover changes things up constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the ops managers and fleet managers on what the real issues are.

    Pros

    mileage rate was excellent, if you got some miles.

    Cons

    Had to go to Alabama to pick up my truck which was abandoned by the previous driver. No IRP cab card. I notified them of this. I kept driving, and got a $500 ticket. His response to the State Trooper was, "Can I fax it to you?" That was my last day.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your permits, cab cards, and all your paperwork is in order. Don't ask us to drive after sunset with an oversized load.
