CRST International - the jerks are going after hubby for money

my husband worked there for a whole miserable two months and was lucky if hid paycheck was $200 a week it sucks he quit and now they want more then then he even made this is going to be a nasty battle cause they are not getting any money your stuff already sucked so dont blame my husband

joel osteen as if making huge $$ off of hid religion business, clearly, as show here, the union truck drivers are his msin prize.

this is unfortunate for your family but the unavoidable truth is that the boy scouts are taking over union trucking, and that may or may not be good. for you guys. seems as mentioned before that we need to focus on making sure children are not on the firing line of this battle . boy scouts, girl scouts, , joel osteen,

CRST International - attempted rape

I was a previous employee of CRST from 12-14-2012 / 1-6-2013. My male co-driver attempted to rape me. The truck broke down and CRST made us share a motel room. He also was involved in a hit & run, he pulled the tandem bar on me while I was under a Hazmat load. He drove with a load that was 4680lbs over weight. CRST was on his side. CRST stated he has the right to do so.

Thank you
Robin

CRST International - low/no pay

I drove for CRST for exactly 45 days and made exactly $1, 400. Needless to say, I would not recommend anyone to hire onto this company. Hidden fees, they paid by practical miles, but I had to pay taxes on hub miles...ridiculous! I have been in this business for 43 years and this company is, by far, the worst in the industry.

CRST International - bad company to work for

I am submitting this complaint after thinking about it for several weeks. First off I would like to say if you are getting into the trucking business when going through training, it is a long process with very little pay, and you have to pay your dues. Be ready to be home very little...this is what trucking is about, however CRST is another whole game.
To begin with CRST was very honest about their reputation, and how they have to stop at every scale, and are not allowed to have passes at scales. They were honest about how their reputation stinks in the business, and their safety is awful. OK...now onto the truth of the company. You will pay for fluids for your truck and expenses out of your pocket and they will reimburse you. When your truck breaks down they will get it into a dealer (when you call and make the appointment and locate one)...while the truck is broken down you get $40 a day (after two days) so if it is broken down for two days you get nothing. Been with this company since Easter, and my truck has broken down 4 times in 7 weeks. I have some experience but not a lot so I ride with a trainer for 14, 000 miles or 28 days. (NOTICE I AM STILL IN TRAINING 7 WEEKS LATER) Because there have been break downs and my trainer went home for 4 days while I was in training. I requested a new trainer and a new truck to be put on 5 times now, and was told tough luck charlie...there aren't enough trainers to put you on another truck. My trainer now has been off since Saturday with a death in the family...guess where I sit...in the truck waiting for him to come back to work...when I asked again about getting another person to drive with they told me there is no one. I have been shorted pay every pay check. I have sent a total of $680 dollars home in 7 weeks to my family because I sit with no pay. The stories that I read before coming to this company that I thought weren't true well THEY ARE! I still have two days of training because the days that you sit don't count of course...so I am waiting for that to happen...will be waiting until Friday to start driving again because my trainer's death in the family. So an entire week with no driving and sleeping in a truck, because they won't put me in a hotel and won't pay me so I can't afford to pay out of pocket for it.
This is a company that should be LAST resort only for drivers and students who truly want to learn the rules of the road...I didn't expect frills and honestly didn't expect much, but the only thing I can say positive at this point is the people in orientation were honest...because they were the only positive side to this whole thing.

crst - is a scary place, i need more training, but they put me out there anyways.
2 incidents a weird co-driver whom i thin k has severe mental illness - extreeme mood swings, dangerous behavior and thogh i reported it they said to work it out - continue to drive

CRST International - no way to run a business

I attended orientation for CRST and was excited about getting started. I wasn't informed prior to orientation that I would need documentation showing that I use my CPAP machine. After CRST rejected all paperwork that I provided them I was told that I needed to go home for 2 weeks, have my cpap machine downloaded at the end of the 2 weeks, submit the paperwork and I would be good to go. I advised them that I had the machine with me at orientation and have already used it for one week so they advised me that I only needed one additional week and all would be good.
I went home on 11/7/11 and submitted the paperwork on 11/16/11 via email. It is now 11/25/11 and here I still sit at home! I can only say that I'm thankful that this company showed it's true colors before I ended up miles from home like my co-driver who is sitting in Mississippi and has made a total of 2 runs since she was hired on 11/3/11. What she has been through in the past 3 weeks is a different nightmare in itself. I'm pretty sure that when CRST finally calls me I will be driving for someone else. Oh and "yes" I did call then several time during this circus.

CRST International - recruiting lies

CRST made all kinds of broken promises when they recruited my husband, but the worst is when he spent days in a parking lot, with no hope of getting a load any time soon, so he asked to just go home. They told the lead driver he was not to move the truck under no circumstances and told my husband he was to find his own way home. My husband spent 70 dollars on a taxi to a bus station that was closed, so he is spending the whole night sitting on the curb waiting for his 2 day bus trip to start. He also will not be eating, because he already ran out of money waiting for a run, which never came.

crst sent me to albany ga for a wk refresher course never told me i was going anywhere else. recruiter said she asked if had any misdeamnors or felonies. never asked that or told me i was leavin georgia. get to cedar rapids 2days into orientation said they found a felony. said you aint found no felony but do have misdemeanors. wanted the dates an how do you remember 15 to 20 yrs back at age 47?well they said were parting ways now an left me stranded an im from florida.now live in a homeless shelter cause they didnt do a background check.no arrest in 12yrs so you figure this out an tell me this is a good company to work for.if you say they are you lost your mind.

How sad. my friend, is on his way back from there as I type this. We have a family Emergency at home and was told before he left out that if any such thing occur they would get him back home. It happen and was told by his recruiter Sarah S that he had to find his own way home. Mind you in their paper work it states they are about family.. Family comes first. They are a family run business. Your poor husband.. I know you were worried sick. As I am about my situation. He is oh his way home thank God. After that experience, he will not be returning to CRST. DID I mention they lied also about feeding him lunch. Thank God again I packed him enough food for two weeks. Other wise he would had gone hungry. I Thank God for bringing CRST to the light. To leave people Stranded is awful. Heck Inmates get a ride home from Prison.. We are talking about people who went there to hopefully bring more revenue to the CRST. DID your husband get hit with all of their charges while he was waiting to make money himself?

CRST International - fraud

Just got off of a government website. Just seen where CRST got a grant from the federal goverment back in Jan. 2011 for 2 million dollars for bus tickets for students and people going to orientation. CRST takes ticket cost out of your pay! Hmmmmmmmmmmm. Gonna blow the whistle on this crap!

What website. Hey we will blow the whistle together. They left me Stranded in IOWA when I had a Family EMERGENCY at home. When people get there and after they have told them that they checked, out before they send them the bus ticket they come up with some crazy reason to tell them they have to let them go.. Then Stand them there too.. Please post the WEBSITE or give me the name.. If the Government is funding them that kind of money then they need to know about how it is been abused. Leaving PEOPLE STRANDED.

Hey fist###ed! Do you just sit around all day and bash peoples complaints? WTF is your deal? You've ranted on everyones complaints today from Chase to Delta Airlines! Get a LIFE!

CRST International - stay away from crst!!!

After completing a private trucking school i obtained my CDL . I went to a 4 day orientation, which they told me i was going to go with a lead driver for a 28 day training program, I was also prommised in writting a $100.00 signing bonus which i never recived. In orientation i was told that my lead driver would help me on my log books, pre-trip inspection, trip planning, fueling ect. As soon at my 4 day orientation ended they rushed me out the door and bused me out to portland OR. where a lead driver was waiting for me, i then found out later that the reason that they bused me up there is because his CO- driver quit. I was with this trainnier for 4 days and the trainnier refused to help me with any of the issues disscussed in my orientation and in fact he was very rude to me with the 4 days i was with him. I called his fleet manager because he drove off with me on the top bunk when i was sleeping which is against regulations and the lead driver got mad and threw my personal property around. I was told i was going to go back to cedar rapids IA. when i arrived they were no help to me and i then had to bus myself back to california at my own expense. when i got to california, CRST made me take another road test because the lead driver said that i almost hit a truck which was a LIE. I passed the second road test and was issused another lead driver, i was with this 2nd lead driver for about 10 days, and this guy had an attitude and always got in my face and hurrassed me. In seattle WA, i then called his fleet manager and told him about this situation, when i got back into the truck after i got off the phone with the fleet manager, The crazy lead driver told me to get on the top bunk, i refused to do so, and then he got off his seat and picked me up and shook me yelling at me and threatning me and hitting me in the face, so i had to jump out of the truck and called law enforcement, and the fleet manager had the nerve to ask me if I wanted another lead driver the police took me to a Motel, which CRST was supposed to pay for the motel room.CRST advance me some money on my comdata card which did not work until the next day.when I retuned to calif fontana CRST photocopied all my recipts and they said they would send them for reimbursement but the cedar rapids location never recived them. CRST did not reimburse me for nothing $75 taxie & $83 motel they did pay for my bus ticket. CRST never returned any of my calls.Is funny that both of the lead drivers said that I was way better then the last driver I had and the one that quit. Well look what happen to me Its like some kind of scam. STAY AWAY FROM CRST! [protected]

WOW! what a bad experience you had with CRST. I have to say, they do kick a good game their recruiter's, until they get you there. Then the table turns. I must say they will leave you STRANDED! I know of Inmates that will get bus fair home. They treat you less than Human I Feel.. Please do not have a family Emergency you are going back home too on your own. They will not feed you either. You will go hungry if you do not have your own food.

Again, I am so sorry to hear about your bad experience with them too. I only wished that I had Taken it all in before I made that move to go there. You live and You learn. I will never return back to CRST, once my family emergency has smoothed out. I mean NEVER!

Thanks for the information. This way no one can say they were not warned.

CRST International - piss po company

My husband also went to work for crst he did the orientation after that he had to wait about a week in a hotel they had him in cause they couldnt find a trainer so he told them to give him a bus ticket home they did a week later they got him a trainer. He had a good trainer. After he got on his own they teamed him up with a good partner. Their first assignment crst wanted them to go to miss to pick up an abandoned truck they wanted them to drive their own car they said no. So they paid for them to rent a car once they got to the towing yard where the truck had been towed the owner said the truck had not been paid for so they couldnt take it. Plus the truck was filthy with numerous bottles filled with urine bags of trash stuffed under the seat. Crst claimed they paid the towing fee but the owner said they didnt. My husband and his partner left the dispatcher at crst wanted them to take the rental to ok but they didnt have them another truck to drive so they would have to stay in a hotel until they found them a truck my husband and his partner turned the rental car in here in birmingham and came home. Crst never assigned them a truck nor gave them any loads. Then they had the nerve to send my husband a form to fill out for the government stating that they were working for crst so crst could get paid by the government for hiring them.

They had us to sign some papers in orientation and refused to allow us to have a copy of it.. When asked they told us that it was for their records only.. Who signs any type of paper, especially a legal document and not get a copy of it.. That did not sound right to any of us.. IN class yesterday.. When Asked by several of us the answer was still No! and the lady grab all of the forms up very quickly and ran with them.

Oh my! This has to stop! THEY are Scams! and they are frauds. They are obtaining Property By False Pretense in my Opinion.

Lies lies lies from day 1. Slave labor after the 28 days with a "trainer". After getting the first .01 raise the miles fell off. And why ? They Have new hires to save them a bundle. Our dispatcher is Lousy! We Had a problem and needed to get to Florida. Gave us a load to ky But took it away from us in Chicago and left on Friday night on a Holiday weekend without saying anything to anybody about our need So we sat all weekend long-3days- before getting moving again. Asked Weekend dispatch to have the supervisor call on Tuesday... Yea that's Gonna happen. Last month was out 5 weeks & sat 10 days. They don't care. There's a new bunch evry week. Bigger is NOT better. Don't b a slave for 8 months! Run away!
