This is how it is in EAST CHICAGO, IN..
Everything that has been mentioned about CR England is VERY TRUE!! However, the most important thing that was left out more than anything is the ">STARTING PAY FOR BEGINNER TRUCK DRIVERS<"!!
When I spoke to my recruiter about the "START PAY" I was SPECIFICALLY INFORMED that I would start out MINIMUM $750.00 to $850.00 maximum on a weekly bases. When I started training I found out that was a lie. It ALL DEPENDS ON NOTHING BUT MILEAGE. IF YOU START OUT SOLO YOU'LL MAKE $400 something odd dollars to 500+. Now if you were to TEAM UP with SOMEONE ONLY THEN YOU WOULD SEE $600+ to $700+ or maybe $800+...
NOTE::: "IT ALL DEPENDS ON MILEAGE" While you are with your OVER THE ROAD TRAINER AFTER RECEIVING YOUR CLASS A CDLs you will only earn ($00.11)a mile not ($00.24, 25,26,27,28, or 29 cents a mile)
Now NOONE is there for food or anything else. People only come for ONE THING & ONE THING ONLY WHICH IS THERE CLASS A CDL. To train for it to meet all the qualifications that is REQUIRED FOR THEM TO GET THERE CDLs as well as work and get paid for it. Now CR England RECRUITERS need to STOP MISLEADING PEOPLE INTO BELIEVING OTHERWISE. THAT IS WHAT MAKE PEOPLE LEAVE ON THERE OWN TERMS ONCE THEY GO THROUGH ONE OR MORE DAYS OF THAT FIRST WEEK IN CLASS AFTER IT'S ALL SAID AND DONE.
BE HONEST ABOUT WHAT YOUR COMPANY PROVIDES IT STUDENTS. THAT'S IT AND THAT'S ALL!!
THAT CUP-A-NOODLE IS YOUR CONTINENTAL LUNCH WHICH YOU HAVE YOUR CHOICE OF CHICKEN AND\OR BEEF. ALL YOU NEED IS A FORK AND ADD HOT WATER. THEY HAVE THEM BY THE CASES AND NEVER RUN OUT OF THEM.
I was also told, "THAT I WOULD (NOT) NEED ANY MONEY TO COVER FOR BREAKFAST AND LUNCH BECAUSE I WAS GETTING A CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST & LUNCH!! After speaking to more than ONE person I later found out that you did NEED MONEY for YOUR FOOD NOT JUST DINNER!!! Every MORNING you have DONUTS, CEREAL, MILK, AND COFFEE. The MILK WAS CONSTANTLY PUT OUT ON THE TABLE AFTER THE EXPIRATION DATE EXPIRED. NOONE WOULD BOTHER TO THROW THE MILK CONTAINER AWAY OR POOR IT OUT. They would even draw a line through the expiration date with a permanent black marker so you could not see the EXP. DATE on the MILK CONTAINER... Even when the MILK is NO GOOD AND SPOILED they still continue to put it out on the table EVERY MORNING.
