 I'm a current company driver for Crete, though not for much longer. Let me start by saying there are worse companies to work for and they do have a few upsides. However if you are an experienced driver this is not the place to work. If your straight out of school or other large companies you'll probably love it here. I've been with them only a month or so and am thoroughly fed up with the beurocracy, cheapness and general distrust toward the driver. Currently my truck is at an international dealer dpf isues being repaired. Diamond on the hood, big shock All went fairly well thus far. Got good communication and response from breakdown. Wrecker driver was prompt. Truck was towed to shop and driver was instructed to take me to a hotel. Cool. They had a plan. 24 hrs 10+ phone calls later I was instructed to check out of hotel and they were going to arrange for transportation to a different truck. So far so good.... Now I'm standing on a street corner with my belongings. No money (fuel cards are turned off so cash advance can't be taken during breakdown). The only person in the entire company apparently who can make travel arrangements and decide truck assignment has been at lunch for 4 hrs. At least that's what I keep being told when I call. My dispatcher's only response was. "Guess maybe that's something we should have prepared you for". I'm not particularly disgruntled, it happens. But, if you are checking this sight in order to decide if you should drive for them. I would advise against it unless you enjoy being a steering wheel holder blindly following orders, how fast to drive, where to fuel, when to panhandle on a street corner for food while truck is in the shop. If you like burocracy, hive a high tolerance for be and can live on $800 a week when all goes well then you'll love it here. As for me I'll resolve the situation find a place with a bit more freedom and less of a tight grip on money.
