Are random strings of numbers more believable than rounded off numbers?

    They say there's a sucker born every minute. That ad is geared towards them.

    Not meaning to troll, but who says those numbers are random? CR England is NOT one of my favorite carriers, but I do know several drivers on dedicated accounts that are making in those ranges. Those numbers might well be the averages. Some carriers might clean up and block the numbers off. This carrier seems to have just reported the numbers.

    CRE, as long as I have known of them, has been notorious for being one of (if not thee) lowest paying of the bottom feeders. Unless things have drastically improved there, very recently, those numbers, as they are presented, are not believable.
    I will admit that the very low end of that range might be possible for the highest achieving drivers.

    Well, as I stated, I don't like CRE either. CRE is one of those carriers I only advise to apply IF you are in a bind and have limited options. As I can only go by his words (and I can't ask to verify) one driver I know that lives near me reports to me he makes just over $1700 a week. I can only report what I am told. I CAN NOT verify any of that is true.

    I hear you, and I’m just going by the complaints I have read on this and other trucking forums, posted by hundreds of unverified cre drivers.
    I dislike cre for their total scumbag practice of manipulating rookie drivers into their lease program, allegedly

    The problem I saw with CRE. Dont make any plans until AFTER you have been with them for a year. 90% of the drivers there wont last a year.

    CRE still needs to dupe the occasional experienced driver into its ranks, to mitigate the insurance costs of its fleet of rookies.

    If you're making that kind of money at CRE, you're killing yourself to earn it.

    Those Dollar General accounts are hard work. Even paying what the do, they still can't keep drivers on them. If you ever seen a van floor-loaded with potatoes just piled in, that's how DG loads you with boxes. And it's a multi-stop run, so you have to go digging around to find the right boxes for each stop.
