C.R. England Trucking4701 West 2100 South Salt Lake City, Utah United States of America
I was a student dirver at CR England from 12/2008 to 01/15/2009 and decided I had seen and had enough. I witnessed first hand the nightmare so many had talked about as far as CR England screwing there drivers over.
I was a student driver, and of course had my trainer. He was very laid back, easy going and a pretty good teacher. He had just leased a Peterbilt and was pretty excited over it. We were out on the road just about about 4 weeks and my trainer making good money was bringing in just about nothing, and sometimes was ending up in the negative for his paychecks. There were often times we ended up sitting days, waiting for loads. I didnt really mind cause I was being paid 400 plus a week no matter what. I felt pretty bad for this guy though.
My point is this. All the horror stories you hear about this company are true. I, like I said had seen enough. So when we headed back to Indiana, I called my DM and told her I was headed home as there was a family illness. I didnt tell her I wasnt coming back.
My trainer informed the DM, he was quitting and made arrangements to drop the truck off. Everything was fine, so I thought. I received a call from CR, asking me when I was coming back. I told them I wasnt.
I applied at many trucking companies that trained after that....not one phone call returned. I called CR England and asked them if they had put anything on my DAC. I was infromed by their safety team they had in fact done that. Thet reported me as abandoning a truck. How could this be? I called and told them I was leaving for a family illness. I was informed that there had been a mistake and it would be corrected. I was downgraded from Truck Abandonment to/ Quit or Seperation of employment. Only problem is, I cant get a hold of the DAC people to confirm is was changed. Not to mention that this was the reason I couldnt get hired on as a student driver anywhere else.
I have read quite a few of these stories posted here. They in my opinion are all legit, cause I have seen these things go on fisrt hand. I have dealt with the recruiters first hand.The driver managers, right on up to Mr. England himself. Yep, he made an appearance at our "graduation class"
My question is this...Mr England and his family are known mormons who supposedly follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. Does he not know that many individuals with families of there own are not being taken advantage of? The fact that in my opinion this whole training thing, and the non stop recruitment of people that have just aqquired or will obtain their CDL licenses through CR England is a viscious circle, even a raquet? Surely as a God fearing man Mr England and his family would not allow this to go on?!!!
Surely Mr England could not possibly walk through the front doors of that humongous, beautiful church every Sunday morning with the all that on his mind...oh the hypocrisy!! I mean...What would Jesus Christ do?
Mr England? What would Jesus Christ do?
