    Pros

    If you live the east coast and alot of sleep they're great

    Cons

    Favoritism is so obvious

    Advice to Management

    Remember there are 5000 other companies hiring. Letting some one with 18 yrs quit speaks volumes about how you feel about loyalty

    I worked at Crete Carrier (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really nice office staff
    Really well maintained equipment
    Great Miles
    Good benefits
    Customers respect you
    Get home on time

    Cons

    No company paid detailer (meaning when you get a new truck, YOU pay to have it detailed)
    Office staff is SUPER nice, until you have a problem and then they can get down right rude
    Office does not work nights or weekends( meaning if you have a problem, your screwed)
    Most trucks have electronic A/C installed but some do not and it can really stink to be the guy who does not have one when everyone else has them.

    Advice to Management

    Hire 24/7 staff
    DD13 Frieghtliner is god awful

    I have been working at Crete Carrier full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you're willing to work and handle business the way you should, Crete will take care of you. They will get you good miles and good home time, even if it's not planned home time as long as you give good notice. I have given notice a month ahead of time and ALWAYS got home when requested. In the last 9 months I've never waited longer than 2 hours for a dispatch, short haul pay is given, equipment is well maintained, they appreciate their drivers and pay is good. I've never come across a disgruntled driver at any shipper or terminal. Ovals best company I've worked for.

    Cons

    Minor issues for myself not worth mentioning. Every driver is different and will always have complaints about their employer. If you find the perfect job let me know.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but get the trucks up to a safer 65mph.
