    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.

    Verbal contract said my husband would get 1000 dollar sign on bonus, be in training for 3 days and be out for a week, then to return home and get ready for 21 days out with 4 days home after each 21 day run. Reality is he was in training 3 days then sat around for 2 days and then sent to a parking lot in Alabama where he sat for a couple more days. He was then told they have to drive first 200 miles free if not loaded and the bonus comes after driving so many miles.Also he would have to be in training 28 days before he could go home. That's 28 dys of driving, which in over a week they did none. They did not pay for training, food or the drive and wait out to Alabama. Did some research and they have drivers stranded all over the country, and they can not get home cause they either have a truck payment they can't make, or have no money to get home. Just google CRST, you won't believe your eyes. I would love to see a class action suit against this company that backs these drivers into a corner.

    Crst
    Crst is a joke. These young urban professionals don't give a crap about the drivers. Why should they you ask? We are all adults here? That is correct, but some of these "adults" don't give a f### about going to jail for assult and battery, especially the ones that crst hires....so, crst beware! I have personally heard drivers say "you know what? Im gonna go to cedar rapids iowa and go into that office were all the dispatchers are and they will see me, face to face" ! So, crst, be very careful the way you treat other human beings, cause you might just run in to one of these ex-felons you guys hire and it will be your last.

    How do you mean? You can't just say something and not back it up with something else. Have you ever even worked for crst? You say all these companies are the same, ok, well, youre just the same as all the ######### ignorant people who say everybody's the same. Whatever gxy.

    I cant say for sure how CRST Expedited runs, but I am on the Malone side which I have no problem saying this is the best paying company I have EVER worked for. only complaint I have is the maint plan sucks. .12cpm that you never see again but they do fix everything that has to be fixed.
