It seems Thomas the lead driver's last job was flipping burgers at McDonald's if he thinks the chump change he gets from CRST is good money. He'll go to work for Milton truck lines, they start you at 50cpm plus tarp pay, detention pay after two hours and much more. If you have 6 months experience. BTW, they don't give a rat's hind quarters if you're under contract or not. But be prepared Thomas this is a trucking job that involves a little bit of physical labor. You choose maybe the $700.00 a week on a good week with this POS company or $1300.00 to yes I did get a check for $2100.00 one week with them. Now I pull tanks and bulldozers at $28.00 per hour, not by the mile. Have a meager existence working for this company because that's all you're going to have
This is really NOT a bad place to work. I am a Lead driver who take student out for 21 days and 10,000 miles . You just can't be a little butter cup and cry about everything.I get paid well making about 1100 a week . Keep the left door shut and roll. Btw it a OTR position so you will not be home every weekend. But when you request hometime you will get it.Just be respectful to your DM and you could do really well here too
One of your truck drivers "Richard Pierce" from Oklahoma was disrespectful to me while I was just trying to make small talk to him while I was working at my job, he also had an entitled attitude about things and it seemed to me he already had a pissy attitude which possibly was the reason why he was disrespectful. I was only trying to do my job.
This place is a joke everyone tell you what you want to hear. When you ask them about something they told you they say oh we didn't tell you that. Everyone is rude that works here and has an attitude toward people. Don't ask the front desk about the schedule for the van because they get an attitude. Don't ask the van driver where they going after they get back from a trip or ask them how long it will be because they get an attitude. They told me 3 week school is it now they saying it may be an extra week which will put people in class for 4 weeks instead of 3 weeks. That makes them away from their family longer then they was told. They want you to pay 6500 dollars for the school and the dorm room is like jail.
I read the reviews for CRST and I have to say the majority of the bad ones are BS. Coming first hand from someone who lived with an employee and had to listen to the day in and day out of everything I would like to point out a few things
1. .25 is the start out pay for a student, you DO NOT SPLIT THE PAY YOU SPLIT THE MILES! Its one of the biggest rumors going on.
2. They do not strand you!------- If you fail a drug test/lie about your app/ get caught drinking-drugs on campus yes you are expelled and you do have to find your own transport home, same thing goes for people who have family emergencies ect. If you fail your test or have a medical issue THEY WILL PROVIDE TRANSPORT HOME! They bring you in to hire you, as any good business would do.
3. Have a grown up attitude about it. If they ask you to do something, do it, they are the employer you are an applicant who is going through a 4 week long interview.
4. Its a good way to get your foot in the door of one of the nations largest dob fields, and they pay for it as well!
Experiance it for yourself, don't take someone elses word for it. If you want it achieve it, its that simple!
