If you are thinking of a lease program with CR England, think again. Yea, its great if you want to loose your house hold furniture, personal cars, your house, and eat grilled cheese sandwiches for supper for a week.
They push, push, push, team drivers. Which one pays the truck bills and then they split the final income. Which after driving 3000 mi a week my husband BROUGHT home 320.00 Yea, out of town, away from his family, driving hard, and all of that for $320.00. This week, they were sure to get the truck payment and insurance for the truck wich left his pay check of NEGITIVE 112.00. He only got to drive 1500 mi this last week.
The company does not want him to drive more than 65 mph reguardless of what the DOT posted speed limit is. when they divide the miles and the time it took him to get to his drop off and it comes up more than 65, he gets a log vilation with the company. BUT if he does drive 65 mph and gets the load there late, he gets a company log vilation as well. AFTER signing on the lease program and telling them he was NOT doing team driving, they still tried to get him to stop in GA to pick up another driver, someone he had never meet before, and just expected him to let this man/woman live with him in his truck which my husband was paying for, for 3-4 weeks and then split the pay with this other driver.
When my husband told them he was and he REPEATED NOT doing team driving and also they gave him company log vilations for his speeding, he has been sitting here at home for a week and half. He has called his driving manager at least twice. NEVER once has anyone from CR England called him to tell him what was going on. Oh and by the way his truck is governed at 70 mph. They wont set it back to 65 because the loads wont get there on time. He had one vilation of going 72 mph, now you tell me how that can be.
In conclusion, I really wonder what kind of profit CR England is making. The devil in me just wants everyone that had part in this bad situation to have to go through everything my family is going through the past month. They need to stay away from home for 3-4 weeks at a time, eating PB&J while in the truck, getting behind on every bill you have, eating grilled cheese for dinner, drinking water for a week because you have no money for a bag of sugar, and loosing everything they worked so hard to get. I wonder how they would deal with the thought of not sleeping in their own beds at night, not kissing their children good night, every night, not having a steak dinner, and driving a 1999 model car because they cant afford that JAG or Benz they are currently driving ALL FOR $320.00 a week.
Thank You CR Englad, thanks so much for just screwing everything up for my family. Hope you can rest in peace tonight. You take the cake for one of the worst companies to work for.
