Complaint Review: CR England
CR England England Corporate Slavery, Trucking Capitolist, CMV Rip off Salt Lake City, Utah
25 years as a firefighter/paramedic (retired) and after 4 years of unemploment, I chose to become a driver. England made it easy to go to school and get a truck. As they also made it lease (BHAHAHAHA) a truck and get on the road. Fact is, I tuned out all the negative and wanted to be my own judge. My issues started with the lease.
$478/wk and $0.14 a mile. Which after some federal disclosure of rebates brought my lease to $187/wk. I also became a Phase 2 trainer and I was off and running in the conmtainer division (which only gave me solo miles). First week out, Horizon leased me a truck with glazed brakes. To the shop, $3400 and 10 days, I was in the hole for thousands. Filed a small claim and did not win.....go figure.
After the repairs were made, I began to run again with no real paychecks and $100/wk cash advances, I left containers to over the road. Miles ran up, and money was flowing. $2k a week with intermintent $750 was working nicely. That was until they wanted me to become a Phase 1 trainer. I did complete the training and after almost betting killed by students a couple of times, I went solo. My Driver Manager was like "no problem" then the miles started to drop. 3000, 2500, 2000.....the more they dropped, the slower I went down the highway. 3 checks in a row at under $100, I was forced to take a student. Mileage miraciously came back to 4500, far less than what is considered a true "team" load.
So here I sit on a load that is over weight and unable to deliver in California loosing my a*s again. I could just pack it in, but the abandonment thing is hovering. BTW, all of the big companies are related by blood in some sort of way. They cannot be in the same room together. STEER CLEAR!!!!
