CR EnglandHungry, tired used and abused employees students

CR England, What a joke, just a money mill and they do not care or give a crap about their drivers, they did over half a billion dollars of revenue last year and their drivers are barely making a living. those that lease, work a week, seven days over the road, dangeours work, away from home 7 days and hten get stuck with a bill for 50 -100 dollars or more. Imagine working 7 dangerous days away from home, then getting a bill for your service! They own the leasing company, so they make money off your truck lease and your service, while you barely earn enuff to make a living!
The school is just a money mill, they do not give people enough time to learn the material, basically setting you up for failure while they make the 2, 900 dollars off your schooling, which is not schooling at all. They just give you materials to read and study and barely time to read and study. Your first red flag should be if they leave you little time after they call you to come attend the school. There is no way you can learn all the information in one day to pass your cdl test. I studied before i got there and did pass the tests only to get attacked/assaulted by a crazy animal roomate and kicked out of the school for fighting and "I did absolutely nothing but go to the office at the hotel and report the crime." The hotel is a dump, fleas everywhere even under your sheets at night, microwaves don't work, heat/air don't work and nobody cares, they act like they care but they do not. They told me I would be in a new hotel and they set me up in that dump, The American Suites Inn. The only have one bus and 2 vans to get you from class and to walmart so there is never enough room for everyone to get on, Which means you wake up at 4 after 4 hours sleep, only to miss the bus through no fault of your own and sit around for another hour to an hour and a half waiting for the bus to return, you are sleeping about 4-5 hours a night, 12 hours of class a day, then you will miss the bus to get home after class if you don't push your way to the front and they never run the 2 vans, you do get to see them sitting there in the parking lot. Then the director A-o-io will talk like he cares but trust me he is a power monger and does not give a crap, all they are doing is farming people and making money off you and your hard work, assuming you can make it through the living hell they routinely and continually subject you to!
There were about 75 people in my class and they talk to you and treat you like crap. They have so many new hires, way more than they could possbily employ and those that they do, they do not have enough trucks for, so what they are really doing, is trying to lease you a truck so they can make money off your work and the truck lease! All while you barely make enough to pay your bills, truck payment, insurance and gas, after 7 days hard and dangerous work over the road! Not worth any of the crap or torture they subject you too. I heard stories of trainers trying to get trainees to drive more hours than legally allowable per DOT regulations by driving signed in on the electronic log under the trainers name, and if you get pulled over while driving under theior name, you have comited the crime not them!
The entire company is crap, the people are crap, to include the goofy trainers and none of them give a crap about you. Do yourself a favor and stay away from them as far as you can, I could go on and on complaining about the inhumane treatment. Like the fact that new bodies come through the doors every week. So many new hires (trainees) that they could not hire them all if they wanted to.
Do not even think about joining that organization, you will regret it! and if you do, they won't pay you fair compensation for your hard work. .12 cnets a mile for team driving? Hello, that is 550 - 650 for 7 dangerous days out on the road for less than 100 a day! just say hell no, you won't go because I can guarantee, you will regret it.
Good GOD CR England and all of their money grubbing human farming are nothing more than feces, using and abusing "people" for their own persoanl gain and profit! Don;t believe me? Go and see for yourself, then come back and confirm that everything I said is true. Those not complaining or saying good things are either lying or desperate enough in the tough economy to have anything to occpuy their time!
They even told us point blank, that they do not have enough trucks to hiore all the people they hire. All they want you to do, is be on the hook for a truck lease so you have to stay on and struggle to make your payment and insurance. The director A-o-io is just an arrogant power hungry jerk hell bent on overseeing their people farm like Stalin of Hitler, ruling "nothing" with an iron fist. And all the other people talk down tpo you, like you are not important and making clear that they do not care or give a crap abpout you. Like I said, i could go on and on, do yourself a favor and find yourself a real job, because CR England is not it!

    Like I've said before, trucking is not for the weak and whiny. That's why you 2 are on the complaint board complaining. Weak and whiny...need some cheese w/ that whine.

    I wholeheartedly agree with everything you said. I just did a week there (yes, it is like jail) and the class started with 80 people, then was down to 25 by day 4. They also get rid of women as quickly as possible. They do it so underhandedly that you don't even realize it. Each day ten or more students are kicked-out, and you think it is because they couldn't hack it or didn't pass the tests or have driving issues they didn't disclose, but in reality CR England knows they cannot employ all the students they admit in the program. The reason they let students by the hundreds come in each week when they know they cannot employ that many people? They stick you with the $3, 000 contract even if you don't finish the program. CR England is in cahoots with the finance company to pay for your schooling. The finance company tells you this will re-build your credit, but what it really does is ruin your credit because you still have to pay the bill - even if you are excused from the school. I should have listened to what people were trying to tell me about CR England!!
