    i drove for them if you run hard and know how to do your logs you will make ok money i ran 5k miles in 1 week i had a CAT with me i made 1600 take home BUT the next week i only got 3500 i also had a cat with me guess what i made a whopping 500 that week so if you drive for CR make sure you are ready to run and keep on top of your DM also do not hit any deer because your check will be about neg 300 even after running 4000 miles that's what happen to me and that's why i left them because their insurance would not cover it even though it was consider a non preventable accident

    I am with CR England right now one week into the 3 weeks exploitation required of any new driver at 2nd seat in their CAT program it doesnt take long to figuer out what these companys are doing to the new drivers in order to make the not so smart people who signed a lease with them money .I mean really what is a driver that has been driving for 3 months going to teach a driver that has been driver for one month both are still pretty dnew at the game if you ask me I do not like how any of these big companys run there buisness it is all set up to take adantage of the new drivers for 6 weeks so the other lease drivers and trainers can make money, but what are you going to do? if you want to be a truck driver many of these companys are the only place to start so I am shutting my mouth doing my job and putting in my time until I can move on to something better I don't plan on making a lot of money for a couple years I just want to get good at driving a truck and have 2 years of accident and ticket free miles then maybe things will come together with a different company. I will say this about CR>England the trainer I had was great and so far even as the second seat in their CAT program I am driving 2500 + miles a week I just wish being as thou they are driven the same as the first seat drives his miles that is 10 hours a day I was getting paid more then 11 cents a mile but oh well 2 and a half more weeks to go and I am on to the next phase of this truck driving adventure. In short I would just say to become a truck driver most of us are going to have to do like many before us have done to get in the door that is suck it up, eat #### for awhile and then who knows maybe someday we will be one of these drivers going down the highway with our own name on the door.
