The company and the school is a scam and a lot of people have been ripped off from them. They get you down there with a “free” bus trip, but quickly get their money back when you pay the $100.00 admission fee. The hotel is horrible. Then you are stuck there with no transportation and everything is far away. The rooms are overcrowded and dirty. Over the phone the recruiters make you feel like you will have a great paying job, but their intentions were to get you down there where they can try to pursuade and even force you into sign a lease on one of their trucks. You’re not told the truth at all. I was told different and contradictory information. Also when I questioned the director or recruiters they wouldn't give me straightforward answers. Everything was on a hush hush basis. I finally got tired of everything and had to pay my own back to ct because I couldn't stand all the dishonesty from that company. The company has a history of doing this to people and it's too bad I found out late. Lesson learned and wish to warn others of this scam.

    Quite honestly, I have to agree with the person making the complaint. However, there are tons of employers that are worse, I have paperwork to prove it. That being said, I did not expect a day at the ritz, and expected a lot worse. The doctrines that are thrust upon you are made to weed out the ones that will not make it in the trucking industry, it is a filthy job that takes a huge amount of commitment and one must endure a lot worse than the hotels and schools. same for the over the road training you get- prepare to get dirty.
    Luckily, my ethics are far more stringent than CR England's, so I have been able to endure and thrive.
    I have more trouble with the crap that has been thrust upon me in regards to the settings and outright damage they are doing to the trucks they lease out.
    On the bright side, with the level of dedication that I possess, I have found a loophole to exploit in regards to their trucks.
    If one is smart, they will pull every load they can, and "use up "the truck before the lease is up.
    No truck is worth 40k after 500, 000 miles and the damage they force upon it, so when they did a projection of my mileage for the next year, it raised more than one eyebrow. I'll turn it in and purchase a new one when I'm done with it. In the mean time, I'm taking care of it as my own; its my bread and butter.
    The truck will be around 600, 000 miles, and it will all be lower end, lugging miles. As a diesel mechanic, I can tell you that the engine will be worthless when I'm through with it. Also, by the virtue of being a mechanic, I can slow this to a certain extent by a few service tricks few know, and does not void the warranties by adding questionable chemicals.
    There is nothing they can do about it by the terms of their contract, either. The truck will remain unaltered as they want, and be damaged by their own actions beyond my control. End of lease, not my problem, in black and white.
    I suggest to you and anyone else that wishes to work for England, bring a trucking brain along. The school is nothing compared to the rest of the lease.
    A load of experienced and dedicated drivers like me would definitely throw a wrench into their machine.

    I have a few questions for anyone who can answer them.
    How long is their lease and what kind of an agreement do they make you sign? (Details please) Cost of truck vs miles and pay, time in lease, maintanence, insurance, etc, etc. WHAT DOES IT SAY???
    I read how CR England is in a law suite about their lease contracts from years ago, but what about now? What is wrong in their lease that everyone is saying, DO NOT SIGN??
    I am reading posts of people saying "DONT DO IT", signing a lease and all with them now., PLEASE BE SPECIFIC so others can understand WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE CONTRACT.
    I have considered working for this company, now I am alittle skeptical after the posts. Is it really THAT BAD???
    I mean, what if you lease their brand new truck? Less of a headache for repairs?
    Anyone with the same problems who have leased a new truck and teamed up with someone, wife-husband?
    I have not read a single answer to those who have questioned:
    "WHAT OTHER COMPANY IS A GOOD COMPANY TO WORK FOR THEN IF CR ENGLAND IS NOT SUCH A GREAT START?"
    After you get a CDL, you are limited to the options of what company to work for, right?... so which one does everyone recommend then, after you have your CDL, if you dont have a CDL?
    I have heard that class C is the best one to obtain, whereas class A is what companies require...
    For MR. LOOPHOLE, what do you mean exactly by, "MY ETHICS ARE FAR MORE STRINGENT... SO I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO THRIVE?"

    Bottom line is, I am an eagar to learn, thrive and independant person wanting be a truck driver on the open road, and want to do it THE RIGHT WAY.
    Glad to hear from the best of the best drivers out there!!!

    Perhaps its time to file a complaint with NTSB and the Dept. Of Labor.
