    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

    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.

    Pros

    There were not any pros that I can think of.

    Cons

    I came to orientation and went through a 5 day orientation, after which I was told we would have to wait on trucks as they had no trucks that were ready. After waiting over two weeks for truck I quit and got another job, They claimed I owed a truck payment for the two weeks even though I was not able to run the truck because it was in the shop and Malone would not authorize it to be repaired. They eventually sent the debt they claimed I owed them to a debt collector and have ruined my credit score. In closing don't work for this company only one driver from my training class got a truck that worked and the rest of us were told we owed for trucks that did not work and we were never able to run with.

    Pros

    Decent flatbed training in orientation, fuel discount is good,

    Cons

    My average pay, as a lease purchase truck driver who doesn't hardly come home, didn't refuse loads, working for CRST Malone, giving accurate etas, fully compliant, since the first week I started, is $494 a week on my first 13 weeks (including advances, discluding unavoidable expenses like tolls and scales). The sad thing is, after my per deim, and actual expenses, I'm honest to God going to legally be able to show making less than zero on my taxes, and I'm still trying to make it work because there were two weeks that were worth it. If it gets better by the time I leave the USA, hopefully for good, I'll update my review

    I worked at CRST Malone full-time

    Pros

    Peers are generally fun people, but that may be because we're all in the same boat together.

    Cons

    This is not a 40-hour a week job.
    Salaried employees routinely work long hours (7am - 5pm minimum) every weekday, and then at least on Saturday (8am - 12pm) a month (maybe more depending on how short the department is).
    If you show up 5 minutes late, they'll write you up, ignoring the fact that you're still going to work at least another 8 hours and 55 minutes that same day.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to work your employees overtime, then pay them accordingly. Pay them what they're worth, and for what they're doing for you.
