Over the Road Truck Driver | Cedar Rapids, IA | Aug 14, 2019
Not a place for advancement
I wouldn't recommend this job to anyone. The best thing I can say about them is they'll give you a chance to start your driving career, but they'll take advantage of you by under paying you.
ProsThey'll give you a chance to start your career.
ConsNot a job you want to retire from.

If like not working,this is the job for you
Became a truck driver to make a comfortable living. Unfortunately you spend more time waiting for work than actually working. You'll deliver a load and sit multiple days, which you don't get paid for and spending your own money to eat

Stay away
You've been warned. If your seeking out this company because you want to get your CDL I would go to a different company. Go to Knight Transportation after you get your CDL. Also get your CDL on your own.

It's a good company to start your trucking career.
It's a nice company to work for. Some driver managers on nights and weekends are very rude and don't care about what's going on with you. It's a great start your trucking career.
ProsThey will pay for you to get your cdl under a contract.
ConsHealth benifits are very high in cost.

Lease Op / Trainer
The company was an OK company to work for. Had very little if and issues with them. I trained for them in most of my time with them. Worked well with most of my Dispatchers throughout the years. It's what one makes of it. But always remember. This is a TRAINING COMPANY.
ProsYour success is on you as a driver. Give one the ability to start a new carreer.
Consinventory season when everything tend to slows down. Which is no fault of CRST.

They’re money Hogs
Bad home time, the more you’re out the more money they make of you. You’re forced to team with someone, forget your privacy it’s all about their money.

good company
good job to have. the hardest pat is team driving. its a great environment to be in. CRST is a perfect company to start out at. I learned how to turn my "ok" driving into "great" driving.

National Disaster without merit
A most disagreeable group of nitwits, similar to a chicken without a head. No support, no sense of urgency and totally disorganized. I suggest you turn and move as far from this group as fast as you can.
ProsNone
ConsNo loads, no support, no opportunity

I would rate them a zero if I could
Crst is the worst... They tell you lies coming in and leaving out. I was threatened by my drive manager and continued to be cheated with my pay. They promised it will be fixed the next week to no avail. This is not a career driven company and they only care about themselves and not the drivers.
