The recruiter will tell you what you want to hear, and not the cold hard facts. You will not average $1.96 a mile after the 25% CRST cut. My average has been $1.67 and this is before trailer rent, equipment, tags, and other charges not disclosed by the recruiter. Knock $.27 off the top for the crappy equipment they sell you, and $.67 for fuel. You will wind up with $.73 a mile on a 1,500 mile week. Which is all you will wind up with after taking time to be legal from loading, unloading, and sitting around waiting on dispatch. Take your truck payment out of that, and you will be in the red.

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.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

ANY COMPANY IS BETTER...!

AUTHOR: Thirty Years plus - ()

The drivers are correct.  You do not need to stop at this company for any reason.  If you are a shipper you should seek another company to ship your product with as well.  As a former Safety Trainer at the Riverside Terminal...it would behoove you to find any other trucking company to work for...PERIOD.    Everyone from Alvin, Debbie, Dan and all the way to Cedar Rapids are failed LEADERS and the owner of CRST should really seek to remove those people that are responsible for training and safety for this trucking company, CRST. 

 

It is by far the worse company I have ever worked for in regard to REALLY HELPING PEOPLE GAIN A SOLID CAREER in trucking.  It is all about a trucking MILL to get you to work just a few weeks...pay you about $175 to $200 a week and hope you bail in a month after you 28 day training.  HORRIBLE.....!  Especially if you have a family and really want to make a living as a driver...which you can do.  I have...for 30 years....new cars...new homes and a really well to do life.  

However, CRST is not the place to do it.  The chances are slim to NOT EVEN CLOSE!  They have a handfull that have done 2 to 10 years.  NOT MANY compared...to others...trust me.  

They have an average of 14 pages of accidents a day...with 9 accidents on a page.  Two rollovers every week and at least five left the road every week of the year.  DEATHS average 47 drivers a year and 67 total including the public on average.  NOT GOOD.  

 

MY ADVICE....GO ANYWHERE ELSE TO GET THE TRAINING AND THE JOB.  PERIOD.  ANYWHERE ELSE....!  HERE LET ME SAY IT AGAIN....ANYWHERE ELSE!

#2 Consumer Suggestion

Here's a company

AUTHOR: dargroupfl - ()

Go to dargroupfl.  They pay 100% to the truck and charge just a small fee for the loads.  You will be a true owner operator with them.  They don't force dispatches on you and you can choose the loads you want.  There will always be some deadhead but they give you the mileage rate including deadhead.
