    I have finally landed at an amazing company, in Crum Trucking out of Batesville Indiana. Everyone I have met and worked with, office staff, customer service, customers, other drivers, even the amazing staff in the shop who keep the trucks up and running. You hear a lot of companies claim to be "family oriented" companies, I have been to a couple different companies claiming that and I know for sure CRUM is the only true family oriented company, the head of the company, his sister, his wife, their kids ALL Work here. No One is "better" then anyone else, I could walk into the owners office ANY TIME I want or personally call or text him on his cell phone 24/7 365 days a year. You will rarely find anyone revealing their titles, not because they don't have them but because the believe that shows status. We all know who the head guy is but you better call him by his first name and not SIR or Mr Crum. Are the trucks Perfect BRAND NEW TRUCKS? NO, but they are very well maintained Volvo with 10 sp Eaton Fuller Manual transmissions, with cummins engines. I have had ZERO issues with the truck, (okay I have one cabinet door that won't stay closed but guess what Duct Tape fixed that issue) the pay is great, you get paid % instead of CPM which means you make MORE money. Most of the runs here are dedicated not to a company but you go to the same customers either daily (which is what I am working on right now) or even weekly, so you drive the same routes, get there the same time and know how the customer operates. You get to know the employees at the customers, you develop a repour with them. Oh here is the Awesome thing, Crum has grown by word of mouth, we have NO SALES Department if we are hauling to or from YOUR company it's because someone in the company was familiar with Crum and recommended we haul for them, not because a pushy salesman came in and smoothed talked them.
    Our shop is 24/7, if you come after your trip at 3 am or 4 pm there will be a TEAM of Mechanics in the shop and turn around time for MAJOR things is PDQ.

    I can finally say "I LOVE MY JOB AGAIN"
    Like Confucius said "Find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life"
    CRUM Is this job, WHAT AN AMAZING COMPANY
    sometimes you have to wait for GOD's Perfect timing
    He doesn't always show up when it's right for US but he ALWAYS shows up when it's right for HIM.
    His Perfect timing for US

    Does Crum Trucking still have the $1000 weekly guarantee & pet/rider program & cdl school tuition reimbursement? I have the company on my list, but you're the only driver that's ever posted about the company.

    The name Crum just itself seems like it is prone to so many Puns.
