CR England's students are destroying our trucks, and the bad thing is that we have to pay for the damages done to the truck, and CR England will not give a dime to help us pay for it, when it's their students destroying it.
The company has a training school for those who want to become truck drivers. They give us a student to train, and allow them to drive our truck that we are leasing and paying for. The company does not want to be responsible for anything that has to do with the truck and the student. So i think we shouldn't be paying the students money from our pockets just so they can damage our trucks. The student is supposed to know how to drive, thats why they went to the CR England school to learn how to drive, but they dont teach them properly,, so when they get in our trucks we can't sleep or anything because we have to babysit them all the time. When we report it to the company, they don't ever reply back to us, they ignore us. When the students upgrade, and if they don't pass, they blame US for not teaching what supposedly the company is supposed to teach them, and it looks bad on us drivers, and not the company. So the company thinks by teaching them for a week, they think they are Pro-drivers. The only thing the company wants, is for the students to lease a truck, it's all they care about when they know the students are careless and wreckless drivers. There are times we pay the students, for just sitting in the truck doing nothing, because some of them don't want to learn, and they discriminate us. I'm not blaming the students, but i am blaming the company for not training them properly. They charge us more than what the truck needs. For example, if we need to replace a tire, they are charging double of what the tire really costs. People think by becoming a truck driver will make them wealthy, but it isn't like that you become homeless because you lose everything, because they don't pay you what you earned, and when you request hometiime, they make a BIG deal out of it. You have to pay your own fuel to go home, and you don't get back the money you spent. Most of the time they threaten you with by telling you that they are going to close the fuel card so you wont be able to make it home. There are times when we dont even have money to maintain the truck. When they give us a student, they dont give us enough miles to drive.. So i think the company should explain correctly to the students te policies, because they tell the student something different, than what they tell us. so i think this company is such a rip-off.
that is the reason why i think we shouldn't pay the students for destroying our truck. The company needs to respond to us. im not blaming the students, only the company.
