    Does Crete have in-cab cameras and manual transmissions?

    All automatics.
    They will put a camera in your truck for reasons. If you've been bad. Or new hire they're not sure of. Like me. Had one for first two months. One alert in all that time. For going over 70. Computers in trucks aren't spastic, trying to nail every little gnat either. Has to be a good 'violation'. They pulled the camera, exactly two months from hire date.

    Thanks, so are the cameras always on, or do they just come on during certain instances?
     
    WesternPlains Thanks this.

    As I understand dash cam's the companies run. They will record and send in 'certain instances'. Crete isn't spastic about that. Rather level headed. Company is run by people who have driven. You can tell in other ways also. Also... those cameras run. I think they can pull any footage they want. Only stored so long. Also will record if you hit a button on it. Send that in.
    This is just my best rationalization from my experience with them.
    Had another company who always had dash cams.

    I’m about to hit 2 years in May. I’ve been at the same place for about a year now. Pretty happy. Would only change it if I found something that pays over 100k but I doubt that will happen.

    Actually 30 months they say. So 2.5 years.

    Good luck on the return @WesternPlains to Crete.

    Gotta go where you think the best option an will be happiest. Money is nice but if you hate the company you work for, it won't necessarily make it better.

    So you are telling me that after 2 years I'll have it so good that I can work for Crete?

    Lol, ok buddy!

    I got 5 years, and 0 points in those 5 years. Also never even considered Crete.
     
    WesternPlains and Lumper Humper Thank this.
