WOW, Where to start. I attended CR ENGLAND driver training course in Burns Harbor IN. Their program is 30 days with a "Phase 1 trainer" and 60 days with a Phase 2 Trainer. Phase one went off with out a hitch. Victor was a easy going guy who took the time to show U the right way, follows the program and helps U at every turn. The only draw back is that they trainer is normally in his bunk sleeping while your driving. NOW comes PHASE 2. What a screwed up ripoff way to do business.
YOUR phase 2 trainer is a driver who just last week conplete has 90 days of training him/her self, took the mandatory 2 hr class and guess what, Yea he is a trainer who thinks he is gods give to driving, he F know it all. Most Phase 2 Trainers are only training 4 the money. They get the .90 per mile you drive, pay U 10.cents per mile and sleep the whole time. Could care less about you or training. every one of those in the Phase 2 trainers were pure pricks. All 3 of them had accidents while I was with them, and all 3 tried to talk the trainee (Me) into saying I were driving at the time of the accident. That way it does not count against their records. DONT EVER FALL 4 THAT TRAP.........
My first phase 2 traine Robert a twit from Georgia picked me up in Salt Lake Facility, we took off to Idaho for a lot of potatoes, this guy started off by running right up on cars blowing his air horns to get the hell out of the way,. Thats how U do it he says. Finally got loaded, were on 1 block off the innerstate hwy, but no, he knows better, he has a magical Garmin thats knows all. I started driving and sure enought with in minutes were in the middle of a housing area, th.en on a to dirt road that could not support 80,000 lbs, eneded up at a dead end facing a Dam on the Snake River, took an hour to get turned around, back to more dirt roads, when I finally hit pavement he just started going off, you have to follow my directions, like were in the country so U dont have to stop 4 stop signs, they dont mean nothing he says. This guy was smoking weed while he was in the bunk, pops pills just to stay awake, just a crack head 4 sure
Finally made NY city wher the first thing he did was have me drive NY City in violation of my hours, after all why would he want to drive their. hard enought 4 good drivers let alone students. Then off to Chicago where it finally came to a head. This Twit broke every law he could find, Logs, speed, HOS rules, fill your truck tank off refer fuel. (Owner/opt) late 4 every load ets,. When the load was short that he counted and sealed this a*s went off on me saying I was going to pay for the missing items, got in my face and made the mistake of swining on me, I, well lets just says defended myself and took him back to Burns harbor and go the hell off his truck leaving him in the middle of the road as he could not drive at the time due to his condition. Served the p***k right.
Not comes the 2nd trainer, Understand CR has a big turn of trainees getting off trainers trucks 4 all kinds of reasons. This is just normal pratice. This was the WORST of all 3 trainers. We never got along. I am not the type you can push around and bully, I know how to handle this type of person. Spent 20 years working MAX security prisons. Anyway, his guy is always yelling and cussing at U, Again breaks every law he can find, 11 hr rule, 14 hr etc, drives on your log book, etc, the straw that broke the camels back was 2 events, First was this guy could not keep his d**k in his pants for anything. Woke up one night to find him banging a LOT LIZZAED in the truck while I was sleeping, Called the Training office in Salt Lake to talk to my training manager, the answer I got from her was and I quote " Well maybe he was Lonley",
3 days later again I woke up when the truck was shaking like a roller coster ride doing over 100mph going down hill in Wyoming on I-80 and this a*s hole had his pants down around his knees wacking off while he was driving. YES JACKING OFF.... Well need less to says I simply keep quiet, were were heading 4 Salk Lake anyway so the best thing was to keep my cool and get the hell off that truck. When we arrived at the S/L Facility I went right into the office and filed a complaint. At first they just played it down, your full of it, your lying , no way would a driver do that, So I simply gave them a choise, talk to him and ask his version, why was the truck doing over 100 mph, he lied about that but your Q com show it had done, asked why he pants were c*m stained all over the front was his final undoing. My choise to them was either they FIRE him right then and their or I was filing a criminal complaint in Federal court the next day. They fired him thankfully.
The 3rd and final trainer was the best of the 3 but still was only into making miles off you. Just like the rest he had only been driving 5 mo total, had an accident backing up and tried to get me to take the heat 4 the accident. He also got 2 tickets in the 3 weeks I was with him. .
CR ENGLAND has the worst training program you can ever think of. The trainers have no experance them selves, CR is only making up driving teams by using the rookies to train trainees. The Bind leading the Blind. Its no wonder they are hiring 400 new driver a week between all of the schools. They charge you and arm and a leg to attend, then shove you off to fend for your selves with trainers who think they know it all. DO YOUR SELF A FAVOR, STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM THEIR SCHOOLS.
