CRST Malone, inc. Malone, CRST false facts/advertising , poor equiptment, uncouth business practice Birmingham, Alabama
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: CRST bulls*** company what a joke
*Consumer Comment: You complainers trip me out...
The brokers will try to manipulate you into taking the loads they need to get rid of. They sandbag good loads and tend to favor the lease guys (company drivers). Also who do you think owns the lease trucks. Which if you plan to lease a truck and trailer, buy a calculator first.
Deadhead is more than 10-12% if you want loads that pay better. We will not get into this however I have the numbers to back it up.Customer base solid, I do not think so. Not with the CRST CSA score. A company that is willing to give a sign on bonus is a sign of a desperate company. Where do you think that bonus comes from? Fuel discount normal, you get it for the cash price.
The company is short of trailers!!! They advertise providing trailers for you to rent. Why do they not have enough? They will charge you for a trailer even if it is not able to pass a dot inspection. I was charged Four weeks rent on a trailer I could not use. When I went to get the trailer CRST told me that I would receive 1.00 a mile to get my trailer. I wound up with .80 a mile and 170 miles plus tolls worth of the hard shaft. Not to mention it would not pass a dot inspection upon getting it.
Well I will not mention all of the down time you will have due to lack of freight. They say buyer beware. Employee BEWARE!!!!! There are better companies out there that will treat you right. Thank you for reading this.
