    I have NO skin in this game, whatsoever. I've known a man.. yes, MAN. That went from HOMELESSNESS (in a not so great city...) and BROKENESS... and Cedar Rapids TOOK HIM ON, took him in. I believe he had prior CDL experience..even just a small amount. A 30 y/o guy, down down DOWN on his luck.

    They took him in, fed him, homed him, and ... he is now a trainer. He was NEVER a 'ghetto' person...not by far. More of a 'nerd,' if you will. The IT industry 'rif'd' him. (Reduction in Force'd him.....in case ya didn't know.)

    If YOU are an ex CRST employee and got out of it; great for ya. One of the few. They won a lawsuit against J.B. Hunt for 'hunting' their trainees....and it still supercedes.

    More 'current' version; and nope..this isn't a friend of mine... just someone "I know" having driven for 20 plus years. @bzinger can vouch this guy is real...

    On that note; if y'all conquer CRST's contracts, PLEASE let @Chinatown know....

    Just wanted to follow up-
    She made it through training in Des Moines and received her CDL, but quit after running a few weeks with her trainer.

    She was recruited under the premise that would be making a minimum of 500/week, and was only making 200-300/week. After coming home for hometime, she decided to not return lol. She is planning to either pursue West Texas oil fields or local work hauling aggregate.

    Once she finds a new job I’ll update this post again

    I get paid by the weight on many of my loads. So I have to scale before and after loading. I have to pay for my own no one reimburses me. But I'm curious, how else would you expect to recieve reimbursement?

    It’s BS. It’s not enforceable. I think JB got dinged cause CRST convinced the judge that JB was activity poaching their drivers which is a whole other thing. Non compete contracts can be considered slavery especially with how bad those megas pay. As long as the ex driver is making payments on the loan then CRST can’t do much. I WOULD complete my contract before going around though cause not doing so may make companies assume your not a person to honor agreements. Just a year just tough it out.

    The problem lies within the fact that NOBODY WILL HIRE a person tied up w/ a CRST contract. Don't believe me? Call the recipient of the letter I posted; he is at G.O.E. in Omaha.

    the issue lies in the driver begin with not reading what they sign

    However the lawsuit to date is against carriers poaching drivers not that non compete itself with a driver cant be voided by a judge because the notion hasn't been challenged
    You get one rich kid who decides run away from home does this sues them and can win because while CRST is a big company there kids parents out there higher wealth than even trump and they all like to act out seems. to be blunt if trump wasn't president there is a group of people who wouldn't even sit at his table because he's too poor for there taste.
